Eddie Murphy is a father for the tenth time as his fiance delivers their second child.
Eddie Murphy is a ten-time father now that his fiancé Paige Butcher has given birth to their second child.
Murphy’s brand new son was born on November 30 weighing 6 lbs and 11 oz and measuring 19 inches long. The actor’s rep confirmed the news and even revealed the newborn’s name – Max Charles Murphy. His middle name is reportedly dedicated to the 57-year-old actor’s brother who died from leukemia last year.
“Both mother and son are doing well,” the rep adds.
Murphy and Butcher are already parents to 2-year-old Izzy Oona. They’ve been wanting to give Izzy a sibling and finally revealed Butcher’s second pregnancy in August.
Max is Murphy’s fourth son. His eldest, Eric is now 29 and is the son of Paulette McNeely. Murphy also has another son with Tamara Hood, 28-year-old Chirstian. His third son is with his ex-wife Nicole Mitchell. Miles is 26.
Four of Murphy’s six daughters are with Mitchell – Bella Zahra, 16, Zola Ivy, 18, Shayne Audra, 23, and Bria, 28. He also has another daughter, Angel, with Spice Girl Mel B who recently revealed that Murphy is “the love of my life.”
In her latest book, “Brutally Honest,” Mel B said that despite being “spectacularly dumped” by the comedian, she still considers him to be the love she would never forget. The singer said they were “completely besotted” until a fight led to their relationship’s demise. Matters became worse when out of spite, Murphy denied the paternity of their child. Through a paternity test, it was proven that Murphy was Angel’s father but the damage had already been done. However, after everything, Mel B still thinks Eddie is “a genuinely decent man.”
