Nicole and Eddie Murphy’s little girl is not so little anymore. Nicole shared a picture of Shayne Audra Murphy looking fierce and fabulous in a two-piece bikini.
The black beauty was captured kneeling on a lounger in a bikini that flaunted her toned body. She wore a full face of makeup and flipped her hair as she stared soulfully at the camera. Her proud mom captioned the shot:
“Just one of my beauties a right here”
Shayne, 23 going on 24, is one of Eddie Murphy’s nine children and was born in October 1994. From her trim and toned body, one can guess that Shayne is following after her mother’s modeling footsteps. Her sister, Bria Murphy, is also a spokesmodel and actress, and it was at one of Bria’s events in 2011 that Shayne met Jerome Martine, her current manager.
Martine saw potential in her and convinced her to pursue a career in modeling. He said of her:
“Shayne is an exotic beautiful, confident, grounded, sweet sixteen year old with impeccable manners and style. She will have a successful international fashion and acting career.”
Martine’s statement is not unprecedented, as Shayne is the offspring of one of Hollywood’s most celebrated comedians and a former supermodel.
Eddie and Nicole tied the knot on March 18, 1993, after living together for about two years. Before their marriage, Eddie already had two sons with two different women. The “Doctor Dolittle” actor and his Nicole went on to have five children together- Bria, Myles, Shayne, Zola, and Bella.
Despite their divorce in 2006, Nicole and Eddie continue to co-parent their children peacefully. Nicole told Radar in 2012:
“Eddie and I are friends; he’s my babies’ daddy, so we speak to each other and have a great relationship and I think that’s important when you have children involved.”
The exes got together recently to celebrate the graduation of their daughter, Zola.
