Eddie Murphy is a dad — again! And the lucky lady who gave birth to baby number 9 is a gorgeous blonde named Paige Butcher. But not only is the model stunning, she’s also an actress — sounds like she and Eddie are a match made in heaven, right? Get to know more about the beautiful bombshell below with our five fast facts!
Paige Butcher, 36, and Eddie Murphy, 55, have been dating for more than four years and earlier this week the lovebirds welcomed their first child together into the world — a precious baby girl! And while Paige is super intent on keeping her and Eddie’s relationship private, she has shared little things here and there with her fans. Get the scoop on Eddie’s gorgeous flame below!
1. Their daughter’s name is Izzy Oona Murphy.
Little Izzy was born on May 3, 2016 and she was delivered weighing 7 lbs., 15 oz. and was 19.5 inches. A rep confirmed after the birth that “both mother and daughter are doing well.” This is Izzy’s first baby and Eddie’s ninth. He’s also a father to 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.
2. Paige is a model.
It’s no surprise that the 5′ 5″ beauty is a model. After all, just look at her shiny blonde locks and flawless skin! She even appeared in a swimsuit video for Maxim magazine in 2005 called Maxim the Real Swimsuit DVD Vol. 2.
3. She’s also an actress!
Talk about a talented lady! Not only does Paige model, but she’s also an actress. The celeb has appeared in the movies Something’s Gotta Give (2003) and Big Momma’s House 2 (2006).
4. She likes to keep her personal life super private.
When Paige started dating Eddie in 2012, the model deleted all of her social media accounts. “I’m in a relationship with a celebrity, so I felt like there’s already enough of me out there,” Paige revealed to 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.” And especially now with a daughter, this decision makes perfect sense!
5. Paige is Australian.
Born in Perth, Australia, Paige was used to living a fairly star-studded life as her mom was a fashion designer and her dad was a model. From the time Paige was small she ALWAYS knew she wanted to be a model — just like her dad! “I’ve always only wanted to model. It really is the only life I want,” the star has said.
