Eddie Murphy talks about his 10 children and about his first grandchild who just happens to nearly the same age as his youngest son.
Comedian and actor Eddie Murphy opened up to Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest on "Live with Kelly and Ryan" where he was promoting his new movie, "Dolemite Is My Name."
But the conversation diverged to Eddie's family and his 10 children. 10...and counting.
Eddie's new movie is based on the true story of a failed comedian who decides to take on the personage of a 70s-style larger than life pimp

The 58-year-old comedian has just welcomed his first grandchild by his son Miles and girlfriend Carly - a little girl called Evie.
“I have my first grandchild. So I think she’s five months — a five-month-old grandchild and a 10-month-old son. Guess that makes me a heck of a fella. My son is my granddaughter’s uncle.”

“Pa-Pa. Granddad just didn’t sound or feel right .Pa-Pa is nice.”
Eddie shares 5 children with ex-wife Nicole, one each with Tamara Hood, Paulette McNeely, and Spice Girls singer Melanie Brown, and two with his fianceé Australian actress Paige, 39.
Eddie's new movie is based on the true story of a failed comedian who decides to take on the personage of a 70s-style larger-than-life pimp and is getting incredible reviews. There are even some whispers about his performance being Oscar-worthy.
The funniest man in the 80s is about to take over the new century. Watch out for "Dolemite Is My Name" at the 2020 Academy Awards.
Eddie Murphy and his fiancée Paige Butcher welcomed their second child together and the comedian's 10th on November 30, 2018.
A representative for the actor issued a statement:
"The baby weighed 6 lbs., 11oz. and was 19 inches at birth. Both mother and son are doing well. This is the tenth child for Murphy, the second for Butcher."
The couple have named their son Max Charles Murphy, in honor of Eddie's brother, actor Charlie Murphy, who died of leukemia in 2017.
Eddie and Paige also share a 2-year-old daughter, Izzy Oona Murphy, a big sister for little Max.
