Eddie Murphy is now a proud father of 10 children. The American actor welcomed his newborn son already named Max Charles Murphy with fiancee Paige Butcher on Friday, his publicist announced.
The boy’s middle name is a tribute to Murphy’s older brother and fellow comedian Charlie Murphy, who died of leukemia last year.
This is the second child for Murphy, 57, and Butcher, 39, an Australian model and actress, who both have been together since 2012. The couple already have a 2-year-old daughter, Izzy.
Eddie Murphy’s other children are 29-year-old Eric with Paulette McNeely; 28-year-old Bria, 25-year-old Miles Mitchell, 23-year-old Shayne Audra, 18-year-old Zola Ivy and 16-year-old Bella Zahra with ex-wifeNicole Mitchell Murphy; 27-year-old Christian with Tamara Hood; and 11-year-old Angel Iris with Mel B.
