Murphy began dating model Paige Butcher in 2012 and they had a daughter, Izzy, who was born on May 3, 2016. In August 2018, the couple announced they were expecting another child, a boy and later in September 2018, the couple got engaged.

Murphy also has a son, Eric who was born in 1989, with then girlfriend Paulette McNeely, and another son, Christian, who was born in 1990 with then girlfriend Tamara Hood.

In 1988, after meeting Nicole Mitchell at an NAACP Image Awards show, Murphy began a longtime romantic relationship with her. The two lived together for almost two years before getting married at the Grand Ballroom of The Plaza Hotel in New York City on March 18, 1993. They had five children together: Bria, Myles, Shayne, Zola and Bella. However, in August 2005, Mitchell filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences” and the divorce was finalized on April 17, 2006.

In 2006, following his divorce from Mitchell, Murphy began dating former Spice Girl Melanie Brown, who became pregnant and stated that the child was Murphy’s. In December 2006, when questioned about the pregnancy by RTL Boulevard, Murphy told Dutch reporter Matthijs Kleyn, “I don’t know whose child that is until it comes out and has a blood test. You shouldn’t jump to conclusions, sir”. Melanie gave birth to a baby girl, Angel Iris Murphy Brown, on Murphy’s 46th birthday, April 3, 2007 and on June 22, 2007, representatives for Brown announced in People that a DNA test had confirmed that Murphy was the father.

They had planned on having a legal ceremony upon their return to the U.S. but did not, and their wedding was never official.

Eddie Murphy Standup | Eddie Murphy Early Career

When Murphy was 15 he listened to Richard Pryor’s comedy album That Nigger’s Crazy and it inspired his decision to become a comedian. His other early influences included Bill Cosby, Redd Foxx, and Robin Williams. On July 9, 1976, the date with which he marks as the beginning of his career, he performed in a talent show at the Roosevelt Youth Center, doing an impersonation of singer Al Green as Green’s song “Let’s Stay Together” played. This led to work at other clubs within walking distance, and then late night jobs at locations that required him to commute by train and to do this, he secretly skipped school. After his mother discovered this at the end of his senior year, he was required to attend summer school.

His early comedy was characterized by copious profanity and sketches lampooning a diverse group of people (including White Anglo-Saxon Protestants (WASPs), African Americans, Italian Americans, overweight people, and gay people).

His first album, Eddie Murphy was released in 1982 and Delirious was filmed in 1983 in Washington, D.C. Due to the popularity of Delirious, his concert film Eddie Murphy Raw in 1987 received a wide theatrical release, grossing $50 million.

Eddie Murphy Raw Quotes

  • Richard said, “The next time the motherf***er call, tell him I said, “Suck *my* dick.” I don’t give a f***. Whatever the f*** make the people laugh, say that shit. Do the people laugh when you say what you say?” I said, “Yes.” He said, “Do you get paid?” I said, “Yes.” He said, “Well, tell Bill I said have a Coke and a smile and shut the f*** up. Jello pudding-eating motherf***er.”

And thy’re like, “Look at these crazy muthaf***as.” Y’all be stepping on people’s feet and hitting one another.
