Eddie Murphy welcomes ninth child

Eddie Murphy has welcomed his ninth child.

The 54-year-old actor's Australian model girlfriend Paige Butcher, 36, gave birth to their daughter Izzy Oona Murphy - the couple's first child together - on Tuesday (03.05.16).

Izzy weighed 7 lbs 15oz and was 19.5 inches long and Eddie's representative told Entertainment Tonight: "Both mother and daughter are doing well."

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.

The 'Beverly Hills Cop' star also has son Eric, 26, with Paulette McNeely, son Christian, 25, with Tamara Hood, and eight-year-old daughter Angel with former Spice Girl singer Mel B.

A source previously said: "Eddie really is a family man and loves all of his children, so he's so excited about having another one.

"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.

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