Okay so full disclosure, I had no idea Eddie Murphy had so many kids.

I knew, of course, he had a few, but I was unaware that he was fast approaching double digits.

It was confirmed this week that the actor is expecting his tenth child, as his girlfriend was papped rocking a baby bump.

The Dr Dolittle star, 57, has been dating Paige Butcher, 39, for six years and the couple will welcome a baby in December, his representative said in a statement.

How exciting.

The couple already have a daughter together, two-year-old Izzy.

Eddie Murphy has eight other children from previous relationships, including a daughter with Melanie Brown (Scary Spice).

He shares his oldest son Eric, 29 with ex Paulette McNeely, and has five children with his ex-wife Nicole Mitchell Murphy.

Phew – that house must be bonkers at Christmas time.
