The 57 year-old legendary actor and comedian, Eddie Murphy, welcomed a baby boy last month with fiancée Paige Butcher, 39. Both starred in Big Momma’s House 2 (2006), but started dating six years later. The Coming to America actor’s rep confirmed their engagement in September 2018.
In a photo posted to Instagram by his oldest daughter, Bria, all 10 of the Eddie’s children posed with their father Murphy for the very first time for their family Christmas celebration. Bria (29) is one of his five children with ex-wife Nicole Mitchell; the other kids are Miles, (26); Shayne, (24); Zola, (19); and Bella, (16).
In the portrait, the Beverly Hills Cop actor held his daughter with Paige Butcher named Izzy, (2), while Butcher cradled their sleeping 3-week-old son, Max Charles Murphy, whose middle name is a tribute to Eddie’s brother, actor Charlie Murphy of ‘Chappelle’s Show’ fame, who died of leukemia last year.
The Oscar nominee began his career with stand-up comedy before transitioning into acting on television and in film and has come a long way towards success. Murphy’s mother and the jolly grandmother of the whole brood, Lillian Murphy, too joined the gathering along with Paige’s mother.
Eddie’s other kids of the clan were his oldest sons, Eric, (29), whom he shares with Paulette McNeely, Christian, (28), with Tamara Hood. His daughter, Angel, 11, whom he had with former Spice Girl and Melanie ‘Mel B’ Brown, too was spotted in the picture. Apparently Murphy is caring for Angel while Mel B, current America’s Got Talent judge, recovers from emergency for two broken ribs in England. The father-daughter duo has been spending a lot of good time together lately and the 11 year old is being taken good care of.
‘I really got lucky with my kids,’ the proud father had quoted once. ‘There really isn’t a bad one in the bunch, everyone turned out to be really good people.’
