Actor Eddie Murphy is expecting his 10th child, People reports.
His partner, Paige Butcher, was spotted sporting her growing baby bump in Los Angles.
“Eddie Murphy and longtime girlfriend Paige Butcher are pleased to announce that they are expecting their second child in December,” Murphy’s rep told the press.
Butcher and Murphy, who have been linked since 2012, already share a 2-year old.
The 57-year-old has fathered eight other children from previous relationships. One of his daughters, Bria Murphy, shared a Christmas photo of their blended family a little over a year ago:
Murphy also shares a child, 11-year-old Angel Iris, with “Spice Girl” alum Mel B. The pair has had a tumultuous relationship, with most recent reports claiming the actor blocked Mel from spilling details about their relationship in her new tell-all book.
According to a source from The Sun, ‘[Attorneys for her publisher] are looking at how to get around the problematic aspects of it, but Mel will not be able to talk about the financials or personal aspects of Eddie’s sex life.”
Mel’s book is set to discuss the alleged abuse she faced while married to now ex-husband Stephan Belafonte.
‘I have kept silent for a decade…This book will show abuse can happen to anyone,” Mel said of the expose.
“It is important that my three girls, who I raise as a single mother, know how to break the chain of abuse – along with any other woman who reads this book.”
