A bundle of joy is on the way!

Eddie Murphy and girlfriend Paige Butcher are expecting their first child together in May, his rep confirms to Entertainment Tonight.

Although the baby will be the first for Butcher, 36, it will be the ninth child for 54-year-old Murphy, who is already dad to Eric, 26, and Christian, 25, as well as Bria, 25, Myles, 22, Shayne, 21, Zola, 15, and Bella, 13, his children with ex-wife Nicole Mitchell, and his 8-year-old daughter Angel with Melanie Brown.

In the meantime, Murphy has recently gotten back to his comedic roots.

In October, the comedian performed his first stand-up routine in decades as he accepted the coveted Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, and delivered his much-talked about Bill Cosby impression.
