Eddie Murphy on being a dad to 10 children: 'Nobody is like the Hollywood jerk kid'

 When it comes to being a celebrity dad, Eddie Murphy's got more experience than most. The comedia has fathered 10 children ranging in age from 2 to 31.


 His large brood includes 19-year-old Bella, the youngest of his five children with ex-wife Nicole Murphy, who plays his middle daughter in the just-released Coming 2 America

 Murphy sounded off on fatherhood, which he called "the center of everything."

“I am going to be 60 in April and I have all these babies," he shared, adding that his family now takes precedence over his career. 

Murphy first became a father in 1989, when he and then-girlfriend Paulette McNeeley welcomed son Eric. A year later, Tamara Hood gave birth to his son Christian. Murphy wed Nicole Mitchell in 1993, and together they shared five kids: Bria, Myles, Shayne, Zola and Bella. 

Shortly after his 2006 divorce, the actor made headlines when he dodged former Spice Girl Mel B's claims that he was the father of her baby, a daughter named Angel born in April 2007. After paternity testing proved that to be the case, Murphy has since welcomed Angel into his family. Finally, he has two children, a daughter born in 2016 and a son born in 2018, with longtime partner Paige Butcher.
