Comedian Eddie Murphy is busy! We’re not referring to his role in the Richard Pryor biopic. He’s preparing to be a father; for the 9th time!
This is the first child for his long time girlfriend, Paige Butcher. The model and actress hasn’t had many roles since her cameo in the 2006 film, Big Mamma’s House 2.
At age 36, Paige is ten years older than Eddie’s eldest son, Eric with former girlfriend, Paulette McNeely.
Eddie’s seven other kids include five with his ex-wife Nicole Mitchell Murphy: Bria, 25, Myles, 22, Shayne, 21, Zola, 15, and Bella, 13.
He has a 25-year-old son Christian, with his ex-girlfriend Tamara Hood; and an 8-year-old daughter, Angel, with America’s Got Talent host and former Spice Girl, Mel B.
We’re sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of Eddie now that he has another mouth to feed. According to his Imdb page, he’s in pre-production for Beverly Hills Cop 4 and he recently completed a family film, Henry Joseph Church (2016).
At age 54, do you think Eddie is too old to be a father, especially with eight previous kids from four different women?
