Comedian Eddie Murphy has the most adorable granddaughter, and fans got a treat when her mom shared a sweet holiday photo and video of the family on her Instagram page.
Edward "Eddie" Murphy is the doting patriarch of a huge family with ten children. Just last year, he became a grandfather when his son, Miles Mitchell Murphy, and his girlfriend, Carly Olivia, welcomed a baby girl, Evie Isla Murphy.
Carly recently shared a photo of herself, Miles, and their sweet baby girl on her Instagram page. She also shared a sweet video discovering what Santa had brought for her.
The snap featured Carly, Miles, and Evie huddled together with dad sporting a huge smile. Evie looked super cozy in dad's arms as she stared curiously into the camera. The post was captioned:
"Merry Christmas from my little family to yours."
The family of three was dressed in matching Christmas pajamas while Evie was accessorized with a white bow around her curly hair. Carly wore her long dark hair down for the snap.
The second snap was a video clip following baby Evie as she hurriedly walked towards a room, and as she exclaimed, "wow," the camera panned to a room full of toys wrapped in colorful wrappers.
The video carried on to show an overwhelmed Evie go through the presents that were gathered around a huge Christmas tree. Fans were just as awestruck by the video and took to the comments section.
"She’s A Little Doll," exclaimed one follower while another fan commented, "@nikimurphy your grandchild is so precious and cute! All of those toys."
The "Coming to America" actor's youngest child is nearly the same age as his granddaughter.
Evie is the first grandchild for Eddie and his ex-wife, Nicole Mitchell Murphy. The couple had four other children before ending their marriage in 2016.
Eddie has five other kids with three different women, including a daughter, Angel, whom he shares with former Spice Girls member Melanie "Mel B" Brown, and two kids with his current partner, Paige Butcher.
When it comes to his big family, Eddie feels great about his ten kids and insists that they all get along. Even more impressive is that the "Coming to America" actor's youngest child is nearly the same age as his granddaughter.
Evie was born just months after Eddie welcomed his son, Max Charles Murphy, in 2018. The comedian admitted that it was a little awkward that the two kids were uncle and niece despite being so close in age.
