Eddie Murphy to have another daughter

Eddie Murphy and his girlfriend are expecting a baby girl.

The 55-year-old actor has confirmed he and his Australian model partner Paige Butcher, whom he has been dating for three years, are to welcome a little girl into the world in May.

When asked what they're expecting, Eddie told paparazzi while on a coffee run in Beverly Hills: "It's a little girl."

The unborn tot will be Eddie's sixth daughter as he already has Bria, 25, Shayne, 21, Zola, 15, Bella, 13, with his ex-wife Nicole Murphy, whom he split from in 2006 after 22 years of marriage, as well as nine-year-old Angel with Mel B.

The 'Shrek' star also has sons Miles, 22, from his relationship with Nicole, Eric, 26, with Paulette McNeely and Christian, 25, from his relationship with ex-girlfriend Tamara Hood.

A source said when the couple's baby news was announced: "Eddie really is a family man and loves all of his children, so he's so excited about having another one on the way."

And, although he will have nine children by five different women, it seems he wants all his kids to bond as one family.

The source explained at the time: "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."
