Who Knew Eddie Murphy Had Sons This Grown? Fans Are Pleasantly Surprised

Posted On : February 22, 2017


Eddie Murphy is known for his many accomplishments throughout his life – an incredible comedian, a well-respected actor, a film producer, a great director, and even a good singer and musician, but one thing he’s not widely known for is for being the father of nine, yes NINE kids!

Most of us know of his two daughters with his ex-wife, Nicole Murphy- Bria and Shayne -because they’ve been making a name for themselves in their own right as models, but many of us never knew that Eddie has GROWN men for sons! Time sure does fly!

Just in case you have never seen the rest of the kids, we’ve spotlighted Eddie’s multiple seeds in this article, but first, check out how grown his sons are…

These three men are Eddie’s not-so-mini-me’s. The Murphy sons range in age from 25 to 29. Pictured above are Eddie’s sons, Myles Murphy; Christian Murphy; Christian’s mother, Tamara Hood; and Eric Murphy. Each of them have different mothers, but they are all really close to each other and their Father and that’s a beautiful thing.

Former Spice Girl, Melanie “Mel B.”Brown, gave birth to Murphy’s youngest daughter, Angel Iris, in 2007, and although things started off really rocky, with Eddie initially believing that he was NOT the father of Angel (until DNA tests proved otherwise), they are now in a great space and Eddie is very active in his daughter, Angel’s, life.

Word on the Old School curb is that it was actually his ex-wife, Nicole, who eventually convinced Eddie to reconsider making a gallant effort to be in Angel’s life and allow her siblings to be in her life as well. Eddie allegedly took Nicole’s advice and never looked back.

Eddie’s eldest son (with Paulette McNeely), Eric; and his daughter (with Nicole Murphy), Bria, are only four months apart and they were both born in 1989. Eddie was a busy man that year, but at least we can say that the brotha has been very instrumental in raising both of those kids and was there every step of the way with them, regardless of his multiple births in one year.

For the most part, everything seems to run smoothly with Eddie and his exes, with the exception of a few bumps in the road, that have long ago been resolved.

Like we mentioned earlier, Eddie’s daughters have modeling careers and their not his only children to have a career in entertainment, his son Christian Murphy, is an actor and below is a interview of him on the red carpet movie premiere for the film, Cougars Inc. You can check out his interview below…

By the way, 57 year old Eddie’s out here showing these youngins how it’s really done. It’s always inspiring to see an Old Schooler take care of themselves and showing the world that age ain’t nothin’ but a number.
