Congratulations are in order for Eddie Murphy and his fiancée, Paige Butcher! The couple just welcomed a baby boy named Max Charles Murphyon Nov. 30. He is their second child together. Their daughter Izzy Oona Murphy is two years old, and surprisingly, for the comedian, Max makes child no. 10.
If his name rings a bell, it’s because Murphy and his lady named their newest addition after his brother, Charles Murphy, who passed away last year from leukemia. What a beautiful way for his legacy to live on.
Apparently, the couple, who lives a low key lifestyle, have wanted to expand their family, and give their daughter a younger sibling for a while. Which makes sense because during her book tour, Mel B, who the actor shares a child with admits, he’s “all about family.” Paige is also reportedly very close to Eddie’s children.
Max is sure to be well loved and adored by his nine siblings, including: Eric, 29, and Christian, 28, whose mothers are the Grumpy Old Men star‘s former girlfriends Paulette McNeely and Tamara Hood; daughters Bria, 28, Shayne Audra, 23, Zola Ivy, 18, Bella Zahra, 16, and son Miles Mitchell, 25, with ex-wife Nicole Murphy, and 11-year-old daughter, Angel Iris Murphy with the Spice Girl.
In 2016 Eddie raved to Entertainment Tonight about his children: “The brightest part of my life is my kids. My world revolves around them.” How sweet!
The new parents met in 2006 on the set of Big Momma’s House 2, but began dating in 2012. In September they announced their engagement and the sex of their new little one.
