LOS ANGELES (AP) — Eddie Murphy is now a father of nine.
Murphy’s publicist says the 55-year-old actor and his 36-year-old girlfriend Paige Butcher have welcomed their first child together, Izzy Oona Murphy. The baby girl was born Tuesday morning.
Publicist Arnold Robinson says both mother and daughter are doing well.
Murphy has eight other children, including five with ex-wife Nicole Mitchell, who was married to Murphy from 1993 to 2006.
This is the first child for Butcher.
