Legendary comedian Eddie Murphy has had his hands full ever since fiancée Paige Butcher gave birth to their second child together, Max Charles Murphy. And that’s quite the milestone in more ways than one, as it is, believe it or not, Eddie’s 10th child.
You heard right, the 58-year-old actor has kept himself quite busy in his life, and because of that, he can literally now count all of his children on both hands. Aside from the two kids the Beverly Hills Cop star has with Paige, 40, he also has eight children with four other women, in a family tree that has quite a few branches.
Eddie shares five children with ex-wife Nicole Mitchell Murphy, and a son from a previous relationship with Tamara Hood Johnson. There’s more. Eddie has another son with Paulette McNeely and one daughter with former pop star and TV personality Melanie “Mel B” Brown.
During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the Oscar nominee discussed how people look at him knowing that he is a father-of-10. “Men kind of look at me like, ‘He’s crazy. How much did that s–t cost?’ And women, it’s kind of like, something sexy about it, I think,” Eddie joked said. “[They think,] ’Eddie Murphy must be doing his thing. Eddie Murphy be getting it in.’”
Aside from being quite the family man, Eddie has also been quite busy on the career front. He has many projects lined-up, and recently starred in Dolemite Is My Name. “I’m really happy that it turned out the way it turned out,” Eddie told Closer Weekly and others of of the film. “When we did this we thought it was going to be a small little thing and we thought that we were part of a cult of people that loved Rudy Ray Moore and we want to tell his story and we didn’t anticipate this.”
