Comedian Eddie Murphy is expecting his tenth child with girlfriend Paige Butcher at the age of 57.
The new bun in the oven will join older sister, Izzy Oona Murphy, in the Butcher-Murphy household, in addition to sisters Bria, 28, Shayne, 23, Zola, 18, Bella, 16,and brother Miles, 25, who come from Murphy's previous relationship with Nicole Mitchell Murphy. Not to forget Eric, 29, from Murphy's ex Paulette McNeely and Christian, 27, with Tamara Hood. And then Angel, 11, who Eddie shares with Melanie "Mel B" Brown.
And as surprising as the news is, Eddie appears to be among the fathers in Hollywood who are more than happy to welcome more children, when others would be pleased about their empty nest. While some fathers like George Clooney took their sweet time to have their first child, other fathers were eager to continue expanding their family well into their fifties. To see which celebs became happy dads after 50, check out the below!
The 57-year-old is welcoming his 10th child with girlfriend Paige Butcher, after welcoming their first child together in 2016.
Almost two years ago, the 75-year-old rock and roll singer welcomed his eight child, Deveraux Octavian Basil Jagger, with girlfriend Melanie Hamrick.
The Die Hard actor has a long line of women to follow in his footsteps, with the star welcoming his youngest daughter Evelyn Penn Willis with wife Emma Heming in May 2014.
The actor and his wife Grace Hightower were overjoyed when their daughter Helen Grace DeNiro came into the world via surrogate in 2011.

The Fuller House star announced in December 2017 that he was expecting his first child with fiancé Caitlin McHugh.
The Oscar winner celebrated his 56th birthday a month before welcoming twins Ella and Alexender with wife Amal Clooney.
The Love Actually star was about 51 when he became a dad to daughter Tabitha with Tinglan Hong after—as his rep called it—a "fleeting affair." Fatherhood agreed with the British actor, because he had three more children in quick succession—son John, with TV producer Anna Eberstein, and son Felix, with Hong, arrived within months of each other; and another daughter with Eberstein.
After his parents divorced, the "Summer of '69" rocker was estranged from his dad for 12 years. Adams sought him out in 1992, a reunion he described 10 years later to The Guardian as "nothing but embraces and tears." Asked if experiencing what it was like to grow up in a broken home was a reason he hadn't had his own family yet, he said, "Well, that's a very deep question. I don't know if I can answer that, I don't know."
Down the road a bit, the singer-activist-photographer was 51 when he welcomed his first child, a daughter named Mirabella Bunny, with Alicia Grimaldi in 2011; another daughter followed in 2013. But he still didn't want to talk much about his private life, telling the Telegraph in 2015, "It's nobody's f--king business but my own."
The longtime bachelor and harshest critic on two continents, a man who had made children cry on TV, turned into one of the most doting celeb dads around in 2014, when son Eric was born on Valentine's Day. The America's Got Talent judge and record impresario was 54.
"I never really particularly passionately wanted children," the idiosyncratic actor, single at the time, shrugged

In his first appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman after becoming a dad, Martin plunked a baby monitor on Dave's desk. "The baby's back at the hotel and I'm a responsible dad," he deadpanned.
The Sex and the City star was 53 when he and Tara Lynn Wilson welcomed son Orion in 2008.
"I think a child changes the equation in your life,"
The iconic singer-songwriter was 63 when he and now-husband David Furnish (48 at the time) welcomed their first son, Zachary, via surrogate on Christmas Day in 2010. Lady Gaga is one of his godmothers, not too shabby.
About a month after Zachary was born, John told Pop Sugar about his decision to have children: "I've had an incredible life. I experienced great joys and great sadness, great highs, great lows, I pulled myself together, I got sober, I got my self respect back, and I tried to make up for lost time by doing good things for other people. But the only thing missing from my life that I hadn't experienced was having a child. And, David and I thought about this and decided to have one and so I think as much as I can teach my child many great things, he's gonna teach me 1,000 times more about myself—what I need to do, how I need to look at things. I've never lived that life before."
Their second son, Elijah, was born in 2013, after which the doting dads said their family had been completed "in a most precious and perfect way."
