All the pieces We Know About Eddie Murphy’s Eight Youngsters

With a career spanning over 40 years, Eddie Murphy is a certified comedy legend. And while the fact that he’s been on our screens for 4 decades is hard to reconcile with his ongoing youthfulness, Murphy is indeed a veteran acting. From Saturday Night Live to his latest sequel to the 80s hit Coming to America, the multi-talented star has had an illustrious career. For all his fame and fortune, he is noticeably reluctant to discuss his personal life.

Amazingly, Murphy has ten children. Given his large brood, he has managed to protect his children (for the most part) from the spotlight. But it turns out that they too lead fascinating lives. Here’s everything we know about the actor’s 10 children.

10 He has 5 baby mommas

Unbelievable, Eddie Murphy has 5 baby moms. While that sounds like a lot, it isn’t bad considering he has 10 children. In the late 80s and early 90s, he welcomed his first children, Eric and Christian, with friends Paulette McNeely and Tamara Hood.

Then in 1993 he married Nicole Mitchell and they had 5 children together: Bria, Miles, Shayne, Zola and Bella. In the mid-2000s he had an affair with Spice Girl Mel B and they had a daughter, Angel, born in 2007. With current girlfriend Paige Butcher, he has a daughter, Izzy, aged 5 and a son, Max, aged from 2 years.

9 This is the heartbreaking story behind his youngest son’s name

One to sleep on: Let go of the past to rest as deeply as possible.

Murphy is currently in a relationship with Australian actress Paige Butcher, who is nearly 20 years his junior. When his youngest son was born in 2018, Murphy decided to name him Max Charles.

This is a tribute to the actor’s brother, comedian Charlie Murphy, who tragically died of leukemia a year before his son was born. He was only 57 years old. In one poignant move, Max Charles was named after the uncle he will never meet.

8th Eric followed in his father’s footsteps, but Christian prefers a quiet life

As the eldest son of Eddie Murphy, 31-year-old Eric has a lot to offer. But he does it alone as a writer and voice actor. According to Avalon Management, who represents Eric, he is currently working on his own animated series.

In the meantime, 30-year-old Christian lives a quiet life away from the media and has no public social media accounts, although he supported his father with film premieres.

7th That’s how much Eddie pays for child support

As a father of 10, and with a net worth of $ 130 million, it’s pretty inevitable that Murphy left heavy living expenses on children.

He pays Mel B $ 51,000 a month for his 14-year-old daughter, Angel, which works out to $ 10 million once the teenager turns 18.

6th Bella Murphy was in “Coming 2 America”

Eddie Murphy’s fans were overjoyed when Coming 2 America, the long-awaited sequel, finally released after the actor’s 8-year hiatus.

Accordingly, eagle-eye viewers may have noticed that one of King Akeem’s daughters was actually played by Murphy’s IRL daughter Bella. While Bella, 19, hasn’t listed any upcoming projects on her IMDB page, we look forward to seeing more of the talented young star in the future.

5 Eddie is a grandfather now

Murphy became a grandfather for the first time in 2019. His son Miles, 28, bears a remarkable resemblance to his famous father and is the first of the Murphy children to have children.

With his girlfriend Carly Fink, Miles welcomed his daughter Evie into the world. Fink frequently posts photos of the toddler on Instagram and she is absolutely adorable.

4th That’s how rich Bria Murphy is

Murphy’s eldest daughter, 31-year-old Bria, originally engaged in acting but is now devoted to working as a visual artist and selling her art to collectors.

Her artistic career has proven to be lucrative as she has an impressive net worth of $ 5 million. The young artist’s pictures are often featured on her social media and she is seriously talented.

3 Shayne is an up and coming model

The stunning Shayne Audra is now 26 years old and, unsurprisingly, is starting a modeling career. With over 55,000 Instagram followers, the elegant Shayne is obviously popular and has a penchant for posting bikini and lingerie pictures.

2 Zola hugs her natural beauty

At 21, Zola is one of the younger Murphy children. Like her sister Shayne, Zola is remarkably formidable. Instagram is about keeping it real, posting mostly unfiltered shots, and celebrating her natural beauty. In a world saturated with FaceTune and Photoshop, we recommend Zola not to indulge in unrealistic standards of beauty.

1 He starts getting to know his daughter Angel

Murphy’s relationship with his second youngest daughter, Angel, who recently turned 14, has been strained for some time. This is due to the sharp separation he had with her mother, Mel B.

In fact, Murphy denied paternity for some time until a DNA test proved he was indeed the father. But he’s now fixing things with his teenage daughter as he has reportedly made an effort to get to know her.
