Eddie Murphy’s seed is superfluous.

The legendary comedian and his fiancée, Australian model Paige Butcher, have welcomed a baby boy, Max Charles Murphy. Murphy’s publicist released the birth announcement on Monday via CBS News. Baby Max entered the world on Friday, Nov. 30 at 6 pounds, 11 ounces; he and his mother are doing well.


If Murphy’s new baby boy’s middle name sounds familiar, that’s because it is: it’s a tribute to his late brother, Charlie Murphy, who tragically lost his life to leukemia last year.

The 57-year-old comedic actor and 39-year-old model have been dating since 2012, and also have a two-year-old daughter named Izzy.

Murphy’s eight other children include Eric, his eldest son with Paulette McNeely (1989); son Christian with ex-girlfriend Tamara Hood (1990); five children with ex-wife Nicole Mitchell: Bria, Myles, Shayne, Zola and Bella; and 11-year-old Angel with Spice Girl Mel B.

Murphy’s oldest child is 29 years old and his (now) youngest is a newborn.

“They’re grown, I wouldn’t say ‘old,’” he said of his children, in a 2016 interview with ET. “None of my children are gray and balding.”

Ten children. That means his offspring can host an entire scrimmage by themselves. He has two starting lineups. They could go as the Talented Tenth for Halloween. He could have them each say a number during the final New Year’s Eve countdown.

So many kids. And Murphy is proud of each and every one of them.

“The brightest part of my life is my kids,” the Nutty Professor star told ET at the time.


Congrats to Eddie! I just have one question: Will he recreate the Klumps dinner table scene with his sizable clan?

One of my side interests is the messy lives of celebrities. When I say “messy” I don’t mean to suggest these people are bad parents or bad people, they just have complex family relationships.

I’m specifically interested in men who keep seeming to hit a reset with every new relationship. I get divorce and moving on with your life, but I don’t get starting over and making a whole new ass family with someone new. Like...I would imagine being a parent several times over with multiple women would be extremely taxing with managing expectations and boundaries.

I can’t also imagine what it’s like to build dreams and hopes with one person, have that collapse and then go through the whole process from the begining with another person - or, maybe I’m just not built like these people and they are able to open up with anyone and be able to burn it down without a second thought.

For example:

Hugh Grant - 5 kids, 2 women

Grant has two kids with Tinglan Hong born in 2011 and 2013

Grant also has three kids with Anna Eberstein born 2012, 2015 and 2018 (yes, thats nearly overlapping births between two women between 2011 and 2013)

Stevie Wonder - 9 kids, 5 women

last one born in 2014.

Mick Jagger - 8 kids, 5 women

Interestingly, Jagger became a great grandfather in 2014, two years later he became a new dad in 2016.

Mel Gibson - 9 kids, 3 women

Clint Eastwood - 7 kids, 5 women

Marlon Brando - 15 kids, 5 or 6 women
