Eddie Murphy is a big family man with ten children from 5 different women, and their relationship with each other is quite surprising.


When it came to having children, Eddie Murphy, "Went big and didn't go home." Instead, he has ten children from 5 women, and his Christmas cards get adorned with their beautiful faces.


The comedy actor's ten children drank from the genetic pool where beauty is given out, and the four sons and six daughters of Murphy stuns every time they get photographed alone or with their famous father.

Eric Murphy opened the "Coming to America" actor's paternity pool. He was born in 1989, by Paulette McNeely; she had a brief relationship with the actor.


Coincidentally, the 58-year-old's first daughter, Bria, was born in the same year as Eric, leading to the conclusion that he was seeing her mother, Nicole Murphy, and McNeely at the same time.

Nicole, however, is the only one the "Nutty Professor" star married. They got married in 1993, and the marriage ended in 2005. Apart from their first child, the former couple share four other children — Miles '92, Shayne Audra '94, Zola Ivy '99, and Bella Zahra in 2002.

Before getting married to the mother-of-five, he gave birth to Christian Murphy, in '90 with Tamara Hood. Years down the line, he had Angel Iris in 2007 with Melanie Brown.


Murphy, at the time Brown revealed her pregnancy, denied being the father until a DNA test confirmed his paternity after her birth. In a past interview with "The Guardian Weekend," the singer said the "Daddy Dare Care" actor acts as a father to their daughter and spends time with her.

In 2016, the comedian had another child, Izzy Oona, with Paige Butcher, and in 2018, they had a son, Max Murphy. Despite having separate mothers, and growing up in different homes, the Murphy children are a close group. They have a good relationship among themselves and with their father and gather together for holidays.


The “Big Momma's House 2" star is not sure he will have more children, but in 2016, he told "Entertainment Tonight" that the ones he has are the best part of his life, and his world revolves around them.

Murphy equally supports his children's dreams and careers, and his youngest daughter with Nicole, Bella, went to her prom recently. The proud mother of the 17-year-old posted her look on Instagram, and could not contain her joy at her youngest marking another milestone; in one of the pictures, Bella posed with her famous father.

With three more proms in the future, the younger generation of Murphy's children will celebrate more milestones, and hopefully, it will be as a family.
