Eddie Murphy says he loves being a dad to 10 kids.
The 59-year-old comedian said in an interview with The Mirror: “I am so blessed with my kids. I don’t have one bad seed. I don’t have any like ‘Oh, you are the one.’ I don’t have any of that. My kids are so great, normal people — and nobody is like the Hollywood jerk kid.”
“I am going to be 60 in April, and I have all these babies,” he added. “I love fatherhood.”
Murphy’s kids range from age 2 to 31.
He and his fiance Paige Butcher have a two-year-old son, Max, and a four-year-old daughter, Izzy.
He shares five kids with ex-wife Nicole Mitchell Murphy – daughters Bella, 19, and Zola, 21, Shayne, 26, Myles, 28, and Bria, 31. Bella starred alongside her father in Coming 2 America.
His oldest son is Eric, 31, whom he had with Paulette McNeely. He has another son, Christian, with Tamara Hood and 13-year-old daughter Angel with Spice Girl Mel B.
Murphy became a grandfather in July 2019 when his son Myles had a daughter.
“My kids are smart and are trying to do stuff. I am blessed with my kids. I really, really got lucky,” he said.
Murphy added that he now puts fatherhood before everything else.
