Eddie Murphy’s brood is growing even bigger as the star is expecting his 10th child. The 57-year-old already has nine children and is set to welcome another into the world with his partner Paige Butcher.
Earlier this month the mother-of-one debuted her baby bump while on an outing in Los Angeles.
She was spotted shopping with one of her friends as the pair strolled down the high street together.
A rep told People Magazine: ‘Eddie Murphy and longtime girlfriend Paige Butcher are pleased to announce that they are expecting their second child in December.’
The pair started dating back in 2012 and already share two-year-old daughter Izzy Oona Murphy.
For a short period, Eddie previously dated former Spice Girl Mel B who went on to have his now ten-year-old daughter Angel.
At the time, her birth was surrounded by controversy as the Dr Dolittle star demanded Mel got a paternity test.
However, since then it has been claimed in court that Mr Murphy’s lawyer have admitted he is simply ‘not interested’ in Angel, as Mel’s ex Stephen Belafonte attempts to be granted step-parent visitation with the child.
And it looks as though the actor is reluctant to revisit his past with Mel, as he has allegedly blocked the singer from talking about him in her new tell-all autobiography.
The 43-year-old has to, reportedly, be ‘careful’ about what she includes in her new book, Brutally Honest.
A source told The Sun: [Mel] has to be very careful about her chapter on Eddie because they have a legal deal in place.’
The 2007 legal deal, the source claims, ‘came in the aftermath of him denying being the dad of Angel and then working out a financial deal through lawyers.
