The actor and comedian is a father of nine after welcoming his first child with girlfriend Paige Butcher.

Eddie Murphy is a new dad, for the ninth time.

On Tuesday morning, the actor-comedian and his longtime girlfriend Paige Butcher welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Izzy Oona Murphy.

"Both mother and daughter are doing well," a rep for Murphy said in a statement.

Murphy's new daughter is his ninth child overall.

His most recent movie Mr. Church had its world premiere last month at the Tribeca Film Festival. Directed by Bruce Beresford, the film features Murphy in the title role as a man hired to cook for a dying woman and her young daughter (played at one point by Tomorrowland breakout Britt Robertson).
