Eddie Murphy is getting married again, to his longtime pregnant girlfriend Paige Butcher.
The 57-year-old actor’s representative confirmed the news to UsWeekly on Friday.
Paige, a 39-year-old blonde beauty, flashed her huge diamond engagement ring on Wednesday when shopping in Los Angeles. According to reports, Eddie paid more than $1 MILLION for the ring.
Paige and Eddie have been together now for five years. The couple had a daughter together already. And Paige and Eddie are expecting their second child (Eddie’s 10th) together around Christmas.
So far neither Eddie nor Paige have confirmed when the couple plans on getting married.
This will mark the first marriage for Butcher and second marriage for Murphy. He was married to Nicole Mitchell Murphy for 13 years until 2006. They share five children—Bria, 28, Miles, 25, Shayne, 23, Zola, 18, Bella, 16. In 2008, the actor and producer Tracey Edmonds exchanged vows in a wedding ceremony abroad but split two weeks later and never made their marriage official.
Eddie and Butcher began dating in 2012 and welcomed their daughter in 2016. His rep had said last month that the actor and model are set to welcome their second child in December. The spokesperson later revealed they’re expecting a boy.
In addition to his and Butcher’s daughter and his five children with his ex-wife, the actor shares son Eric, 29, with ex-girlfriend Paulette McNeely and son Christian, 27, with ex-girlfriend Tamara Hood. Murphy and Spice Girl Mel B also share a daughter, Angel, 11.
