Eddie Murphy Is a Proud Dad of 10 — Meet His Kids
The name Eddie Murphy is known around the world thanks to his work as an actor, comedian, writer, producer, and beyond. For 10 people, though, he’s simply known as Dad. The actor’s work dates back to 1980, when he made his first TV appearance as a stand-up comedian on “Saturday Night Live.” Nine years later, he welcomed his first child. Three decades after that, Eddie welcomed his 10th.
Eddie has been vocal about how much he loves being a dad. “I love fatherhood,” Eddie said during a March 2021 interview on Marc Maron’s “WTF” podcast. “The whole idea of being out there and doing three movies a year, that sh*t is over . . . I found over and over again and along the way I realized that if you put your children first, you never make a bad decision.”
Eddie added: “I am so blessed with my kids. 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.”
While some of Eddie’s kids – such as his second born, Bria, and seventh born, Bella – have made names for themselves as actors in Hollywood, others have remained primarily out of the spotlight. Scroll this gallery to learn all about Eddie’s 10 children.
