Eddie Murphy's daughter Bella Murphy shows off what working with her father feels like in a new post. She detailed behind-the-scenes moments of a magazine cover with him.

Eddie Murphy, 59, may be a legendary actor and comedian, but he never plays with his realities of parenthood. As a father to ten kids, the Hollywood celebrity tries to measure up by bonding with all his children in unique ways.

Recently, one of his daughters, Bella, 19, went online to show her Instagram users that she had fun with her father while revealing what went down on the set of a shoot.

The pair featured on the front page of Essence magazine. Bella's post showed different pictures detailing the moments. Amid the beautiful shots, Bella followed up with a caption that read:

"Behind the scenes of this AWESOME Essence cover I was blessed to have the opportunity to do."

While the first slide revealed her decked in a white long-sleeved button-necked shirt with free black pants and boots, the second showed father and daughter posing with remarkable facial expressions.


The duo dressed in blue and black patterned two-piece outfits. The actor gunned for a black shirt inside his dark-colored jackets which contrasted Bella's, giving his daughter a chic appearance in her white inner-shirt.

Another snap featured the comedian posing on top of a raised tiled platform. His photo spot was at least an arm's length away from what looked like a mini indoor lake or a large pool.

After witnessing his child's drive, the father of ten backed off. 


This time, his daughter was behind the shutters. Her face seemed hidden, but Bella's cameraman pose revealed the loose braids that extended to her back and her rolled-up sleeve, reflecting a work-mode activation.

Eddie's outfit and pose complimented the cool outdoor ambiance of the photoshoot. He was dressed in jeans with a jacket and nice kicks and stood with his legs apart in a composed posture.


While some photos were taken inside, a few were shot outdoors, allowing fans to gush on the tropical scenery that involved tall trees, a waterside, and a well-groomed lush of green grasses.

It is noteworthy that the young adult does more than take pictures with her dad. She connects with him on a different level —acting!


Bella took acting classes a few years ago, despite her dad's restrictions. Still, she followed her passion and ended up winning the actor to her side.

Eddie had initially wanted his kids to go into acting at a certain age. After witnessing his child's drive, the father of ten backed off. The pair is now starring side by side in the upcoming film, "Coming 2 America." 


Eddie's daughters, Bria, Shayne, and Zola, have featured on reality TV shows but have not pursued it further. As for the rest of the Murphy clan, it is unsure who else will walk in their dad's shoes as per their career choice. 

Although the comedian's ten children are from five different women, still, he has shown a commitment to fatherhood by being involved in their lives over the years.
