Fans are in shock after famous comedy actor Eddie Murphy announced that he is expecting his 10th child. 57-year-old Murphy confirmed the news after his partner, 39-year-old Butcher, debuted her baby bump in public for the first time.
Murphy has starred in a variety of movies over the years including “The Nutty Professor,” “Dr. Dolittle,” “Norbit,” “Daddy Day Care,” “Imagine That,” and many other family comedies. His longtime girlfriend is an actress from Australia, but she has made appearances in American films like “Big Momma’s House 2” and “Something’s Gotta Give.”
