Newest Dads! Eddie Murphy, Michael Phelps & Kenneth Okonkwo
May is definitely a fruitful month for most of us! The greatest joy of all is a baby and we have Eddie Murphy, Michael Phelps and Kenneth Okonkwo as the new dads in town.
On Tuesday, 3rd of May, actor Eddie Murphy, 55, and his Australian girlfriend Paige Butcher, 36, welcomed a beautiful daughter, Izzy Oona Murphy. At 19.5 inches long, Izzy weighed 7 pounds, 15 ounces. The child is Murphy’s ninth child and Paige’s first child. We know the question on your mind? Were the other eight children from the same mother? The answer is NO! They were from four different women. However, the children are very close just like their father wanted and he is very much part of their lives. Eddie and Paige are ecstatic over the birth of their newborn.
