Congrats to Eddie Murphy. The 55-year-old comedian and his 36-year-old girlfriend Paige Butcher welcomed a daughter Tuesday morning. A rep tells Page Six,
Both mother and daughter are doing well.
They’ve named their daughter, Izzy Oona Murphy. She weighed 7 pounds, 15 ounces, and measured 19 1/2 inches long.
This is Eddie’s 9th child. Murphy has a son, Eric (born circa 1989), with then girlfriend Paulette McNeely, and a son, Christian (born circa 1990) with then girlfriend Tamara Hood.
Murphy began a longtime romantic relationship with Nicole Mitchell after meeting her in 1988 at an NAACP Image Awards show. They lived together for almost two years before getting married at the Grand Ballroom of The Plaza Hotel in New York City on March 18, 1993. Murphy and Mitchell had five children together: Bria, Myles, Shayne, Zola, and Bella. In August 2005, Mitchell filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences”. The divorce was finalized on April 17, 2006.
Following his divorce from Mitchell, in 2006, Murphy began dating former Spice Girl Melanie Brown. Brown gave birth to their daughter, Angel Iris Murphy Brown, on Murphy’s 46th birthday, April 3, 2007.
Murphy exchanged marriage vows with film producer Tracey Edmonds, former wife of Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, on January 1, 2008, in a private ceremony on an island off Bora Bora. On January 16, 2008, the couple released a statement saying, “After much consideration and discussion, we have jointly decided that we will forgo having a legal ceremony as it is not necessary to define our relationship further,” and called the Bora Bora wedding a “symbolic union”. The two had planned on having a legal ceremony upon their return to the U.S. but did not, and their wedding was never official.
Eddie Murphy dated TV host Rocsi Diaz, after his relationship with Tracey Edmonds. Murphy began dating model Paige Butcher in 2012.
