Jasmin Lawrence and Eric Murphy's relationship is no joke.

Martin Lawrence's daughter and Eddie Murphy's son might be the kids of comedy icons, but their romance is super serious.

While it's unclear when the couple started dating, they first went public with their relationship in June 2021.

Jasmin later confirmed during a January 2022 interview with InTouch Weekly how the pair met.

While one would think it was the lovebird's comedic fathers who introduced them — especially with the actors having done two movies together — Jasmin explained that wasn't the case.

Still, Lawrence and Murphy have talked publicly about the possibility of their kids getting married. In June 2022, Lawrence joked that he would "try to get Eddie to pay" for the wedding during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.

"That's not how it goes," Murphy said playfully when asked about Lawrence's comment by Canadian outlet Etalk in February 2023.

"My daughter just got married, and I had to pay — really had to pay," he added. "You have to do the same, Martin."

Since Jasmin and Eric have gone public, they've shared several posts about each other on their Instagrams, including heartfelt birthday tributes.

From how they met to what their dads think about their relationship, here's everything you need to know about Jasmin and Eric's sweet love story.
