Full house! Eddie Murphy is a dad again, but that is hardly uncharted waters for the actor and comedian.
On May 3, Eddie's ninth child was born, a baby girl, his rep has confirmed.
Daughter Izzy Oona Murphy arrived weighing 7 lbs., 15 oz., and measured more than 19 inches long.
"Both mother and daughter are doing well," the rep told People magazine.
It's the funny man's first child with longtime girlfriend Paige Butcher. But, for Eddie, he's well versed in fatherhood.
The 55-year-old is already a father to Eric, 26, Christian, 25, Bria, 25, Myles, 22, Shayne, 21, Zola, 15, Bella, 13, and Angel, 9. Paige is 36 years old, just 10 years older than Eddie's eldest child.
The couple, who's been together for four years, announced in November that they were expecting. They've largely remained out of the public spotlight over the span of their relationship.
She's even shunned social media.
"I'm in a relationship with a celebrity, so I felt like there's already enough of me out there," she told Vanity Fair in 2013. "I felt like I was giving out too much information. I was giving people too much access. I like to keep as much private as possible now."
The couple is sometimes seen running errands together, but rarely attend public events together. Although, in October, they did attend the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor in Washington, D.C., where Eddie was being honored.
"He couldn't be happier. Eddie really is a family man and loves all of his children, so he's so excited about having another one on the way," a source told MailOnline last year when the pregnancy news was revealed. "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."
The source continued, "All of the children love each other dearly and the women, having all moved on with their own relationships, co-exist very well together."
