Comedian Eddie Murphy expecting his ninth child

EXPECTING: Eddie Murphy and Paige Butcher are expecting their first child

AWARD-WINNING comedian Eddie Murphy is now expecting his ninth child with his girlfriend of four years, Paige Butcher.

The comedian, 54, and his 36-year-old partner, “are pleased to announce that they are expecting a child,” Murphy’s rep told E! News yesterday (Nov 4).

This will be the first child for Butcher, an actress and model who has been dating the Coming to America actor for four years.

The Shrek star already has five children, Bria, 25, Miles, 22, Shayne, 21, Zola, 15, and Bella, 13, with ex-wife Nicole Murphey, whom he split from in 2006 after 22 years of marriage.

Additionally, the stand-up comedian also has a 26-year-old son, Eric, with his ex-girlfriend Paulette McNeely; a 25-year-old son Christian, with his ex-girlfriend Tamara Hood; and an eight-year-old daughter, Angel, with former Spice Girl Mel B.

The 36-year-old model is due to give birth next May and the comedian "couldn't be happier."

"Eddie really is a family man and loves all of his children, so he's so excited about having another one on the way," a source told Mail Online.

"Even though he has eight children by four different women, they all come together on holidays and for sporting events and hang out at his mansion as one big blended family. "

They added: "All of the children love each other dearly and the women, having all moved on with their own relationships, co-exist very well together."
