Eddie Murphy just became a dad of nine after his girlfriend, Paige Butcher, gave birth to their baby girl, named Izzy Oona Murphy, on Tuesday May 3, his rep confirms. While this is the actor’s ninth kid, this is the first child for Eddie and Paige as a couple.
Izzy Oona weighed 7 lbs., 15 oz., and measured 19½ inches long, at the time of her birth in Los Angeles, California, the actor’s rep confirmed to PEOPLE. “Both mother and daughter are doing well,” according to the statement given to the news outlet.
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Eddie and Paige confirmed in November they were expecting a baby together. Eddie previously fathered Eric, 26, and Christian, 25, from two different girlfriends, as well as Bria, 25, Myles, 22, Shayne, 21, Zola, 15, and Bella, 13, with ex-wife Nicole Mitchell, and Angel, 9, with ex-girlfriend and Spice Girls singer, Mel B.
“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 close to the Dream Girls star told the Daily Mail in November 2015. “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.” Well, now they have one more family member to join in on the fun with them!
