Eddie Murphy is a comic icon. He began his career in the 1980s with his hilarious stand up routines that lampooned racial differences and made light of the interracial tensions that were rocking America at the time. He went on to become a huge A-list celebrity starring in Coming to America, Beverly Hills Cop, and Trading Places. People who are a bit younger will probably remember him better as Donkey from Shrek or Mushu in Disney’s Mulan.

The main takeaway though is that pretty much everyone alive has seen at least one film with Eddie Murphy. He’s funny, got great screen presence and charisma, and has a distinctive personality that gives all of his roles a bit of zest. But… did you know he’s a bit of a scoundrel when it comes to sewing those wild oats. Eddie Murphy, everyone’s beloved donkey, has a shocking nine kids with five different women.
First up we have 38-year-old Australian model Paige Butcher who is his current partner. She is only a decade older than Murphy’s eldest child who is 28, but that didn’t seem to faze Eddie too much. The couple had their first child, Izzie, together in May 2016 and it appears that everything seems to going quite nicely for them both

Next up we have Tamara Hood Johnson who isn’t a media persona at all, and in fact many people have mistaken her for someone else thinking that if she had Eddie Murphy’s child then she *must* be famous. She had one child with Eddie Murphy - Christian Murphy who starred in Cougars Inc.
Then we have Paulette McNeely, who is the mother of Eddie’s first child, the 28-year-old Eric. Paulette has never been photographed before and is the least well known of all of Eddie’s many many baby mommas.
Then we have Nicole Murphy. The 47-year-old model was Eddie’s first ever wife and the pair were together for quite a few years (1993 to 2006). She stayed with Eddie for quite a while, enduring his affairs and even that time he got caught with a transvestite prostitute in 1997. Nicole gave Eddie 5 children in total, four daughters and one son and she’s told reporters that the pair have a happy relationship even after the divorce. “Eddie and I are friends; he’s my babies’ daddy, so we speak to each other and have a great relationship and I think that’s important when you have children involved,” she said.
And last but not least…
It’s Mel B! Otherwise known as Scary Spice! Melanie Brown is where all the baby daddy drama actually finds itself brewing up. Not only did Melanie Brown’s pregnancy result in her receiving a lot of harassment and abuse from people claiming she was a “gold digger”, but the former Spice Girl had to drag Eddie Murphy straight to court and have a DNA test just to get him to cough up child support! It took a lot of time but she eventually got Eddie to recognise his relationship with the young Angel Brown who he initially refused to see or even acknowledge for many years.
If reports are true, Eddie Murphy apparently has no interest in a relationship with the 10-year-old daughter he shares with Mel B. Stephen Belafonte and the nasty custody battle has revealed just how little contact the comedian has with his child. https://t.co/IgyJQLB8vF— TV One (@tvonetv) 15 March 2018
