Eddie Murphy has confirmed he and his partner, Australian model Paige Butcher, are expecting a baby girl. This will be the father-of-eight’s sixth daughter and ninth child, and the couple are “excited” about their new arrival.

Speaking to paparazzi, Eddie confirmed he and Paige, his girlfriend of three years, are expecting a daughter in May, telling them: “It’s a little girl.”


The 36-year-old model’s growing baby bump was photographed in late March as she visited a coffee shop with Eddie. The mum-to-be looked positively glowing in a tight brown dress and sleeveless denim jacket, leaving her blonde tresses loose in a sleek style, looking relaxed as she laughed with her comedian boyfriend.



While this is Paige’s first child, Eddie’s unborn daughter will be half-sister to five children from his 22-year marriage to Nicole Murphy; Bria, 25, Miles, 22, Shayne, 21, Zola, 15, and Bella, 13, as well as his other children; Eric, 26, with Paulette McNeely, Christian, 25, with Tamara Hood, and Angel, nine, with Spice Girls band member Mel B.
