Eddie Murphy is a dad again! The actor-comedian-singer and his ladylove, Paige Butcher, welcomed a baby girl on Tuesday morning (May 3).
According to E! News, the newborn daughter, named Izzy Oona Murphy, weighed in a healthy 7lbs., 15 oz. and was 19.5 inches long. “Both mother and daughter are doing well,” said the rep.
This is the couple’s first baby together. However, for Murphy, this is his ninth child overall.
Murphy’s oldest children are Eric, with ex-girlfriend Paulette McNeely, and Christian, with ex-girlfriend Tamara Hood. He has five more children with ex-wife Nicole Mitchell: Bria, Myles, Shayne, Zola, and Bella. He also shares custody of 9-year-old Angel with former Spice Girls member Melanie “Mel B” Brown.
Woo-wee, that’s a lot of mouths to feed.
The 55-year-old funnyman has been dating Butcher for over four years. As you may know, Murphy keeps his private life extremely private and the couple seems to like it that way.
Now that the Shrek actor is a father again, this could spark inspiration for him to go back into the studio. Murphy made quite an impression with his reggae-inspired music. His inspirational jam “Oh Jah Jah” and the Snoop Dogg-assisted “Red Light” were surprisingly good songs.
Congratulations to Eddie Murphy and Paige Butcher on their new bundle of joy!
