Nicole and Eddie Murphy’s youngest daughter, Bella, headed out to prom looking gorgeous in a blue gown. Proud dad Eddie posed with Bella ahead of the event, while Nicole made sure to praise her girl on an Instagram post.
Bella Zahra Murphy is all grown-up and getting ready to finish high school this year.
Ahead of her graduation, the 17-year-old joined her classmates at her prom, and she looked beautiful in what fans are calling an “age-appropriate” dress that didn’t reveal much but managed to enhance her natural beauty.
Bella rocked a blue satin gown with thin straps, a cinched waist, and a flowy skirt. She completed the look with a smoky eye, a gold necklace, matching earrings and her hair styled in two buns on either side of her head.
“My beautiful baby girl heading to Prom. Wow! @bellazmurphy you look absolutely gorgeous... #mybabygirl #prom #bellamurphy #stunning,” Nicole captioned the post.
Fans were quick to fill the comment section with praises for the teenager and her prom look.
“Beautiful and classy! One of the best I’ve seen. Very age appropriate,” wrote one user.
Another added, “Love her dress, good job mamas!!! She looks so classy and modern.”
And a third one pointed out:
“Looking like her Pops and he looks so proud. Aaaaaaaw.”
Bella Zahra is the youngest daughter of Eddie and ex-wife Nicole. They also share son Miles, 26, and daughters Bria, 29, Zola, 19, and Shayne, 24.
Murphy became a father of ten children last November when he welcomed Max, his second son with fiancé Paige Butcher. They also have daughter Izzie, 2.
Eric, 29, whom he had with Paulette McNeely; Christian, 28, whom he shares with Tamara Hood; and Angel, 11, whom he had with former Spice Girl Melanie "Mel B" Brown, complete the extended family.
Last December, Eddie took photos with his entire brood for the first time. They all posed at the bottom of the stairs alongside Paige and both hers and Eddie’s mothers.
“I really got lucky with my kids," Murphy told People magazine in 2016. "There really isn’t a bad one in the bunch. Everyone turned out to be really good people."
He once described his kids as “the brightest part” of his life, and admitted that his world revolves around them.
Murphy is currently working on the sequel of “Coming to America,” one of the films that sky-rocketed his career. He will be reprising his role as Prince Akeem.
