The 54-year-old American actor and comedian is reportedly going to be a dad for the ninth time as his model girlfriend of three years, Paige Butcher, 36, is pregnant with their first child together. The baby is said to be due in spring 2016.
Eddie has five children – Bria, Myles, Shayne, Zola and Bella, aged between 13 and 25 – with ex-wife, Nicole Murphy, 47, whom he divorced in 2006 after 22 years of marriage. He also has an 8-year-old daughter, Angel Iris Murphy Brown from a brief relationship with former Spice Girl, Mel B, as well as two sons, Eric, 26, and Christian, 25, from previous relationships with Paulette McNeely and Tamara Hood respectively.
Sources told Daily Mail: “He couldn’t be happier. Eddie really is a family man and loves all of his children, so he’s so excited about having another one on the way. Even though he has eight children by four different women, they all come together on holidays and for sporting events and hang out at his mansion as one big blended family. All of the children love each other dearly and the women, having all moved on with their own relationships, co-exist very well together.”
