How many children does Eddie Murphy have, when did he date Mel B and what's his net worth?

EDDIE Murphy is one of the highest grossing Hollywood stars in the world, with his films earning billions worldwide.

But away from Hollywood, the actor has found time to have children - quite a few, in fact - including a daughter with former Spice Girl Mel B. Here's what else we know about the comedy icon...

How many children does Eddie Murphy have?

Eddie was born in Brooklyn, New York, on April 3, 1961 - that makes him 57.

He now has ten children by five different women.

On December 4, 2018, it was announced that his fiancee Paige Butcher, 39, gave birth to a son, Max Charles Murphy.

The actor's first child is Eric, who was born in 1989. Eric's mum is a lady called Paulette McNeely. She has never been photographed and little is known about her.

Eddie's second child, son Christian, was born in 1990. His mother is Eddie's then-girlfriend Tamara Hood Johnson.

Murphy has five children with ex-wife Nicole Mitchell Murphy.

The pair met in 1988 at an NAACP Image Awards show. They got married at The Plaza Hotel in New York City on March 18, 1993, and divorced in 2005.

Their children are Bria, Myles, Shayne, Zola, and Bella.

After his 2006 divorce from Nicole, Eddie started dating former Spice Girl, Mel B. She then fell pregnant and stated that the child was Murphy's.

However, when questioned about the pregnancy in December 2006, Eddie was reluctant to take responsibility.

He said: "I don't know whose child that is until it comes out and has a blood test. You shouldn't jump to conclusions, sir."

Mel gave birth to a baby girl, Angel Iris Murphy Brown, on Murphy's 46th birthday, April 3, 2007.

On June 22, 2007, Mel's reps announced that a DNA test had confirmed that Murphy was the father.

Eddie's ninth child, Izzy, was born in May 2016. Her mum is model Paige Butcher, Eddie's partner since 2012.

Eddie and Paige announced in August 2018 that they're expecting their second child together - Eddie's 10th.

He told Entertainment Tonight in 2016: "The brightest part of my life is my kids.

"My world revolves around them -- even the old, grey bald ones."

What's Eddie Murphy's net worth?

This has resulted in a serious chunk of change for the star.

Eddie's current net worth is estimated to be around $85million (?60million).

What Eddie Murphy's kids look like today

Izzy Oona Murphy (born May 3, 2016) and Max Charles Murphy (born Nov. 30, 2018) are Eddie Murphy's ninth and tenth kids and, as of this writing, his only two with Australian actress Paige Butcher. Murphy and Butcher became engaged in September 2018 when the actress was pregnant with baby Max. 

You'd think the former Saturday Night Live star would be too tired to raise more children, but he and Butcher were reportedly ready for more. "They wished for a younger sibling for their daughter," a source told People. "They live a pretty low-key life. They are all about family. Paige is very close with Eddie's kids." The insider added, "They are a very special and happy family. They vacation and spend holidays together. Paige loves being a mom and is very involved."

With one more child, Murphy could field a football team, but we'll have to wait for that after the Coming to America sequel. Hopefully, they'll all get cameos.

Eddie Murphy Raw is a 1987 American stand-up comedy film starring Eddie Murphy and directed by Robert Townsend. It was Murphy's second feature stand-up comedy film, following Eddie Murphy Delirious. However, unlike Delirious, Raw received a wide theatrical release. The 90-minute show was filmed at the Felt Forum, a venue in the Madison Square Garden complex in New York City. The film was released in the United States on December 18, 1987. As of October 2019, it is the highest-grossing stand-up comedy concert film of all time at the box office, making $50.5 million in the United States and Canada.


The film opens with a pre-taped sketch depicting a scene from Murphy's childhood. At a family Thanksgiving in November 1968, the children take turns showing their talents to the assembled relatives (including one played by Murphy himself). Young Eddie (Deon Richmond) shocks the family with a rude joke about a monkey and a lion.

After emerging on stage for the live show, Murphy begins by discussing the angry reactions of celebrities parodied in his previous stand-up show, Delirious, specifically Mr. T and Michael Jackson, as well as homosexual viewers offended by his jokes about "faggots." Murphy then narrates a phone call he received from Bill Cosby chastising him for using profanity on stage. Angered by Cosby's assumption that his entire act was nothing but "filth flarn filth," Murphy calls Richard Pryor for advice. Pryor declares that his only concerns should be making audiences laugh and getting paid, and recommends that he tell Cosby to "Have a Coke and a smile and shut the fuck up." Murphy elaborates on his admiration for the "raw" comedy of Pryor, running through a routine from his own teenage years about defecation, in Pryor's voice. He then goes on to talk about how people who don't speak English only pick up the curse words in his act, and shout them at him on the street.

Next comes a lengthy routine about dating and relationships. Murphy explains that the rise of deadly sexually transmitted infections has motivated him to seek marriage, but the divorce of Johnny Carson and Joanna Holland (in which she sought 50% of his assets) has left him paranoid about the financial risk of marriage, concluding that "no pussy is worth $150 million." He mocks the aggression and materialism of American women (compared to his believed meekness of Japanese women), referring to the popularity of Janet Jackson's song "What Have You Done for Me Lately." He jokes that he intends to go deep into Africa to find a "bush bitch" who has no concept of Western culture... at least until American women convince her to stand up for herself and demand "HALF!" This develops into a broader warning to men to avoid "the pussy trap," and a warning to women that men never remain faithful — once a man has evoked a powerful orgasm from a woman ("ooohhhh!") she will tolerate all kinds of misbehavior, although she may pursue infidelity of her own.

The next segment narrates a childhood memory of his mother promising to cook him a hamburger "better than McDonald's," only to produce a disgusting "welfare burger," a lump of beef filled with onion and green peppers on Wonder Bread (while the neighborhood children show off their McDonald's hamburgers in a call-back to the ice cream segment of Delirious).

Murphy then talks about white people out on the town, criticizing their embarrassing dance moves, leading onto Italian-Americans being inspired by Rocky, then culminates to a bit about fighting in a discotheque with Deney Terrio, eventually starting a large-scale brawl after which "everybody sued me" for millions of dollars.

After the fight, Murphy calls his parents, leading to a long impression of his drunken stepfather (another call-back to a popular bit from Delirious). This final segment runs for over 10 minutes and incorporates his stepfather's habit of misquoting Motown songs (including "Ain't Too Proud to Beg", which opened the film).

The film surpassed Richard Pryor: Live on the Sunset Strip as the highest grossing concert film with a gross of $50.5 million.[4][3]

The film contained the word "fuck" 223 times,[5] setting the record for highest "fuck count" ever in a feature-length, theatrically released film at the time (surpassing Scarface). Raw held the record until 1990 before being surpassed by Goodfellas.

Critical reception

The New York Times praised Eddie Murphy's stand-up routine.[6][7][8][9]

Michael Wilmington of the Los Angeles Times wrote that it was "a surprisingly poor concert film of Murphy’s stand-up act," saying Murphy is "like a musician with fabulous technique playing 'Chopsticks.'"[10]
