Eddie Murphy Is Having His 10th Child, Which Means He's Returning To Work!
NY Post- The iconic comedian is expecting his 10th child, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
This will be his second child with longtime girlfriend Paige Butcher. They’re already parents to 2-year-old Izzy, who was born in May 2016.
Murphy, 57, has eight other children from previous relationships.
Kids Bria, 28, Miles, 25, Shayne, 23, Zola, 18, and Bella, 18, are from his first marriage to ex Nicole Murphy. Son Christian, 27, is from his relationship with Tamara Hood and son Eric, 29, is from the actor’s relationship with Paulette McNeely. Murphy’s 11-year-old daughter, Angel, is from his relationship with Spice Girl Mel B.
Thankfully, Murphy has several projects in the works to support his big family. According to his IMDb profile, he’s currently filming “Dolemite Is My Name” with “Triplets” and “Beverly Hills Cops 4” to come later.
Did people know about this? Eddie Murphy has 10 children with 5 women? Amazing. What a way to spread your money around. And by spread, I mean bury it in five different holes in a dark forest without marking the spots or having any recollection as to where you dug the holes. Based on his success in the 80s and 90s, you might have thought Eddie Murphy could avoid working another day in his life and he’d be all set financially. But boy, did he have other ideas! Eddie decided to create a family capable of playing full-court five-on-five basketball games at Thanksgiving, and he’s finally completed the roster! Which means…
Time to re-enter the work force. Now, it’s possible that Eddie Murphy has been working for the last ten years, but I haven’t seen him anywhere. He’s like an NBA player who goes to play in Germany and then Hungary and then comes back to play for his 14th team and you see him pop off the bench for the Nuggets and you think, “he’s still playing?”
He’s got three movies in the works: “Dolemite Is My Name,” “Triplets,” and “Beverley Hills Cops 4.” Dolemite is a biopic about Rudy Ray Moore, a comedian who performed super blue material in rhyme form. Cast looks amazing and includes Chris Rock, Keegan Michael-Key, Mike Epps, Craig Robinson, and Mike Epps. That one actually seems legit. The other two movies seem like he’s broke. Don’t know anything about “Triplets” but can already tell it’s about a father having three kids and being the whacky dad, aka all of Eddie Murphy’s movies after he had kids. Beverley Hills Cops 4 is the fourth installment we never thought we needed, and we were right.
But good luck to Eddie Murphy. Like a LOT of comics my age, he was a huge reason I wanted to become a comedian. I knew every word to Delirious. Used to recite the ice cream truck bit before English class started in 6th grade. Dude was tearing apart Bill Cosby back when everybody thought he was the nicest dude alive. One of the greatest comedians of all time.
PS- he had a kid with Mel B?! Scary Spice?! Guess I’ve been living under a rock.
