Eddie Murphy: Expecting Baby #10!

Eddie Murphy is expecting the birth of his newest child.

That would be cause for celebration, but he’s about to hit a major parenting milestone. Just a few years ago, Murphy’s ninth child was born.

Now, the famed comedian is preparing to welcome his tenth baby.

Eddie Murphy is 57. His partner, longtime girlfriend Paige Butcher, is 39.

Paige is pregnant, and has begun debuting her baby bump in public.

Though this will be Murphy’s tenth child, this will be baby #2 for them as a couple.

Paige’s slender figure leaves little doubt when it comes to a baby bump, but the couple did release a statement through Murphy’s rep.

“Eddie Murphy and longtime girlfriend Paige Butcher are pleased to announce that they are expecting their second child in December,” the statement reads.

That is exciting news for the couple, for their fans, and also for Murphy’s nine children — who are all getting a new baby sibling.

With a due date in December, it seems most likely that the couple conceived some time during March, which means that Butcher is five months pregnant.

As we mentioned, they have already had one child together.

Little Izzy Oona is just two years old.

Murphy and Butcher have been together as a couple since 2012. So while he may have a lot of children, they’re definitely being smart about spacing them out.

Eddie Murphy has eight other children.

His son Eric is 29. Murphy had Eric with Paulette McNeely.

The larger chunk of Murphy’s children were with his ex-wife, Nicole Mitchell Murphy.

Those children include four daughters: Bella Zahra, who is 16, Zola Ivy, who is 18, Shayne Audra, who is 23, and Bria, who is 28.

With Nicole, he also had his 25-year-old son, Miles Mitchell.

If you were tallying those up and realized that the total is 8, you’re not wrong.

Murphy also had a son with Tamara Hood. Christian is now 27.

And his 11-year-old daughter, Angel Iris, he shares with Mel B.

Yes, that Mel B.

The former Spice Girl has recently been embroiled in a nightmarish divorce with Stephen Belafonte.

Some progenitors come to regret their brood, but Eddie Murphy has heaped praise onto his children.

“I really got lucky with my kids,” he gushed to reporters a couple of years ago. “There really isn’t a bad one in the bunch, everyone turned out to be really good people.”

“None of my kids are like me,” Murphy continued. “And I’m sure parents say this all of the time, they are all totally different from each other.”

Some parents seem to demand that their children relive their old experiences, but Murphy seems happy that his children are their own individual human beings.

“None of them are chips off the old block,” Murphy says. “They all have their own thing, They’re good kids.”

That is wonderful to hear. Supportive parents are few and far between — so baby #10 is going to be lucky!


Tim Murphy, Outspoken Pro-Life Congressman, Urges Mistress to Get an Abortion

Tim Murphy, a Republican Congressman from Pennsylvania, is in the news this week because The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that he once urged his mistress to get an abortion.

This would be cause for scandal when it comes to nearly any politician.

But it’s especially noteworthy in this case because Murphy is one of D.C.’s most outspoken supporters of the pro-life movement.

Not only does Murphy possess a lengthy anti-abortion voting history, but he’s been praised praised by the Family Research Council for his stance on abortion.

He’s also been endorsed by LifePAC, which opposes abortion rights.

Moreover, the Congressman is a member of the House Pro-Life Caucus, an affiliation often cited by his office in press releases and on his website.

Oh, and also, there’s this:

Murphy is the co-sponsor on a bill passed by the House of Representatives this week that would ban abortions nationwide after 20 weeks.

On January 25, however, a forensic psychologist named Shannon Edwards wrote the following text message to Murphy:

And you have zero issue posting your pro-life stance all over the place when you had no issue asking me to abort our unborn child just last week when we thought that was one of the options.

Murphy has admitted to carrying on an extramarital affair with Edwards.

In response to the above message several months ago, Murphy wrote:

I get what you say about my March for life messages. I’ve never written them. Staff does them. I read them and winced. I told staff don’t write any more. I will.

The relationship between Murphy and Edwards was initially exposed as part of Edwards’ divorce from her husband, Dr. Jesse Sally, when he filed in July of last year.

These damning text message exchanges were included among a series of documents obtained by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The newspaper says it has tried to reach out to Murphy for a comment, but has not yet received a reply.

Murphy noted in a January 24 Facebook post that he hoped “we will once again be a nation committed to honoring life from the moment of conception and ensuring American taxpayer dollars are never spent to end a life before it even begins.”

As far as we know, no Republican members of Congress have spoken publicly about Murphy, either.

Emmys In Memoriam Segment Snubs Charlie Murphy, Erin Moran and More; Twitter Rages

So the Emmy Awards happened last night, and lots of people had lots of feelings about it.

And many, if not most, of those feelings were extremely negative.

Lots of people were upset when Sterling K. Brown was played off the stage during his lovely acceptance speech — so many that the venue was filled with boos after it happened.

There was also the very odd choice to bring out Sean Spicer — the "joke" didn't land, to say the least.

Then there was the In Memoriam segment, the part of the show where everyone takes time to pay tribute to the people from the industry who are no longer with us.

It sounds nice, right?

But the people in charge over there at the Emmys truly dropped the ball with this one.

Huge stars like Charlie Murphy, Dick Gregory, Frank Vincent, Harry Dean Stanton, and Erin Moran weren't remembered during this special moment during the show.

And you know Twitter wasn't having that …

1. A Strong Start

A strong start
Viola David? Chris Jackson? Boy, this thing had all the ingredients to be a real tear-jerker, huh?

2. But Alas …

But alas
It just simply did not work out.

3. Common Knows

Common knows
In a nice way, Common called out the Emmys for ignoring Charlie Murphy and Dick Gregory.

4. A Huge Oversight

A huge oversight
… Because really, how are you going to do that to Charlie Murphy and Dick Gregory?

5. Not Erin Moran!

Not erin moran
Seriously, they forgot this lady, too. Such a disappointment.

6. Where’s the Lie?

Wheres the lie
Nothing against legends Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, obviously, but this person has an excellent point.
