Eddie Murphy Welcomes 10th Child

Eddie Murphy’s brood has now reach double digits. And as Groucho Marx once said to a father with a similarly large brood: “I like my cigar, too, but I take it out of my mouth once in while.” Murphy details: The comedian and fiancee Paige Butcher welcomed a baby boy named Max Charles Murphy on Nov. 30, outlets reported Monday. Max is the 57-year-old Murphy’s 10th child. “Both mother and son are doing well,” Murphy’s rep said in a statement. The baby’s middle name honors Murphy’s older brother Charles, a comedian who succumbed to leukemia in 2017. Murphy and the 39-year-old Butcher, who began dating in 2012, announced the pregnancy in August and confirmed they got engaged in September. Their daughter Izzy Oona Murphy, turned 2 in May. The “Mr. Church” star’s oldest child, Eric, was born in 1989 from a relationship with Paulette McNeely. He also has five children with ex-wife Nicole Mitchell Murphy, one with Tamara Hood and one with “Spice Girl” Mel B.
