Eddie Murphy Expecting 9th Child
Eddie Murphy seems to be trying to form his own sports team, because the comedian is now expecting his NINTH mini-Murphy with girlfriend of four years, Paige Butcher. The couple confirmed their brand new baby news via a statement to E!online earlier today:
This is no joke: Eddie Murphy is going to be a father for the ninth time!
The comedian, 54, and his girlfriend Paige Butcher, 36, “are pleased to announce that they are expecting a child in May,” Murphy’s rep told E! News Wednesday. This will be the first child for Butcher, an actress and model who has been dating the Beverly Hills Cop and Coming to America actor for four years.
As for his other children, Murphy and his ex-wife, Nicole Mitchell, 47, have five kids together: Bria, 25, Myles, 22, Shayne, 21, Zola, 15, and Bella, 13. Additionally, the stand-up comedian also has a 26-year-old son, Eric, with his ex-girlfriend Paulette McNeely; a 25-year-old son Christian, with his ex-girlfriend Tamara Hood; and an 8-year-old daughter, Angel, with America’s Got Talent’s Mel B.
Wait…Bria, Eric, and Christian are all roughly the same age by three different women?? Sounds like Eddie was getting it SUPER popping in the early 90’s.
Congrats on the new bundle of joy, though!
