The Coming To America actor Eddie Murphy is engaged to model Paige Butcher, who is expecting a baby boy, after dating since 2012. The two share daughter Izzy and source said both are happy to bring their one more child into the world.
The baby boy will be tenth child of Eddie. He was earlier married to Nicole Murphy for thirteen years. In 2008 he announced to be marrying producer Tracey Edmonds, but it was not implemented and the two split about two weeks later after exchanging vows.
The engagement rumors of Eddie and Paige sparked earlier this week when the model was spotted with a huge diamond ring. It was later confirmed by their rep and it is a time for them to celebrate a lot as the lovebirds are welcoming their second child too.
An insider revealed the pair had wished for a younger sibling for Izzy and Paige is also close to nine other Kids of Eddie – five kids from ex-wife Nicole – Bria, 28, Miles, 25, Shayne, 23, Zola, 18, and Bella, 16, and Eric, 26, with Paulette McNeely, as well as son Christian, 27, with Tamara Hood, and 11-year-old daughter Angel with Spice Girls singer Mel B.
It is learned the two live low-key life and both are all about family.
Mel, mother-of-three, revealed earlier this year that she was authoring a book about her life to show abuse can happen to anyone. She said to be discussing her relationship with Stephen Belafonte in it after being silent for about a decade.
Being a single mother she wants to inspire other women how to break chain of abuse. However, mentioning Eddie in the book means she needs to be very careful as they are currently undergoing a legal deal since 2007 and the actor is denying being dad of Angel.
The two are also working on settling financial deal through lawyers and so exposing highs and lows of their relationship would not help her in any way.
She will also keep the personal aspects of Eddie’s sex life away from the book. Call of the time is how to get round the problematic aspects.
