A good looking bunch! Eddie Murphy’s, daughter, Bria, sent Instagram into a frenzy when she shared a Christmas photo of the 57-year-old comedian posing with all 10 of his children. It marked the family’s first public photo together.
In the portrait, the Beverly Hills Cop actor held Izzy, 2, while Butcher cradled their sleeping 3-week-old son, Charlie. The parents were surrounded by their moms and Murphy’s children from previous relationships: Eric, 29, Christian, 28, Angel, 11, Bella, 16, Zola, 19, Shayne, and Miles, 26.
Earlier this month, Us Weekly exclusively revealed that Los Angeles-based Murphy is caring for Angel while her mother, Mel B, recovers from emergency for two broken ribs in England. “Angel is very well cared for,” a source told Us at the time. “Eddie and Angel have been spending a lot of time together in recent months.”
The Spice Girls singer and Murphy dated for nine months in 2006. When the Brit became pregnant with Angel, Murphy demanded a DNA paternity test, which confirmed he was the father. But the exes have come a long way since then.
“He’s such a loving, caring, respectful person,” the America’s Got Talent judge gushed on Steve Harvey’s syndicated talk show in December. “It took a while to get there because we broke up not in the happiest circumstances.”
Murphy and Butcher starred in Big Momma’s House 2 in 2006, but they did not start dating until six years later. The Coming to America actor’s rep confirmed to Us in September 2018 that the pair were engaged.
