Everything to Know About Eddie Murphy's Kids (He's a Dad of 10)

The comedian has six daughters and four sons

Get to know Eddie Murphy's family.

The award-winning actor has played many roles throughout his lengthy career, but being a father is by far his favorite.

"I love fatherhood," Murphy previously said of his dad duties to 10 kids — which include six daughters and four sons.

"I am so blessed with my kids," he said during an appearance on Marc Maron's WTF podcast. "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."

The comedian's first child was born in 1989 with then-girlfriend Paulette McNeely and his most recent child was born in 2018 with his fiancée Paige Butcher.
