According to Page Six, 57-year-old Eddie Murphy and his 39-year-old fiancée Paige Butcher are now the parents of a son named Max Charles Murphy. Eddie’s rep confirmed the news to Page Six, saying that Max was born last Friday, and weighed in at 6 pounds, 11 ounces. His rep adds that “both mother and son are doing well.” Max’s middle name is a tribute to Eddie’s extremely funny late brother, Charlie Murphy, who passed away in 2017 after a battle with leukemia. I like to think Prince just congratulated Charlie in Heaven with a complimentary post-game pancake breakfast.
Eddie and Paige share a 2-year-old daughter named Izzy. As mentioned, Eddie has eight other kids ranging from the ages of 29 to 11, from four different relationships.
When it was announced earlier this year that Eddie Murphy had joined the cast of a sequel to the 1988 movie Twins, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito, called Triplets, I thought “Who needs this?” Well, Eddie Murphy does, that’s who. He’s now got ten kids, and ten kids don’t come cheap. Between designer diapers and gold-plated hoverboards and whatever they do instead of college (aspiring Instagram influencer?), being the famous father of nearly a dozen DNA connections requires a mountain of shamefully-earned cash. Even Shrek money is bound to look like cup holder spare change when you enter the double-digits of celebrity spawning.
