Actor Eddie Murphy is a dad for the ninth time!
In a statement to “Extra,” his rep confirmed, "Eddie Murphy, 55, and long-time girlfriend Paige Butcher, 36, welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Izzy Oona Murphy, this morning. The baby weighed 7 lbs., 15oz. and was 19-1/2 inches at birth. Both mother and daughter are doing well. This is the ninth child for Murphy, the first for Butcher.”
The two were dating for four years before the model became pregnant with their daughter. In 2013, Butcher explained how their relationship affected her decision not to be on social media. She told Vanity Fair, “I’m in a relationship with a celebrity, so I felt like there’s already enough of me out there. I felt like I was giving out too much information. I was giving people too much access. I like to keep as much private as possible now.”
Eddie is also a father to Eric, Christian, Bria, Myles, Shayne, Zola, Bella, and Angel.
