Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Eddie Murphy and his girlfriend Paige Butcher have welcomed their daughter on Tuesday morning, marking the ninth child for the actor.
The “Shrek” actor’s girlfriend gave birth to their daughter Izzy Oona Murphy on Tuesday as per the statements of his representatives. Izzy was delivered weighing seven pounds and 15 oz. She is also 19.5 inches tall.
A statement has been released by the representative of Eddie saying, "Both mother and daughter are doing well.” This is the first child for Butcher.
Eddie and Butcher have been in a relationship for more than four years now but the two have been living a very private life and it is expected that they will be raising their child outside of the spotlight.
Butcher was interviewed back in 2013 about her reason of staying off social media accounts. The Australian model told Vanity Fair the following: "I'm in a relationship with a celebrity, so I felt like there's already enough of me out there. 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."
Back in November the 55-year-old comedian and the 36-year-olde model announced their pregnancy. The statement says that they are pleased to announce that they are expecting a child in May. They did not reveal the gender of their child at that time.
It is unclear if Butcher and Eddie are planning to get married soon or if they will get engaged now that their daughter is brown.
The oldest children of Eddie are Eric, whom he had with his ex-girlfriend Paulette McNeely , and Christian, whom he had with another ex-girlfriend, Tama Hood. He has five other children with his former wife Nicole Mitchell. They are named Bria , Myles, Shayne, Zola , and Bella. He also has one more child with former Spice Girls members Melanie “Mel B” Brown, nine-year-old Angel.
