The famous American actor, singer, director and producer Eddie Murphy recently gave an interview to an American publication. In his story, he shared his plans for the future, and also told about what it is like to be a father of ten children at once and a grandfather at the same time.
It is worth recalling that Eddie Murphy became a father for the first time 30 years ago, but the youngest child of a celebrity will soon be one year old. In addition to children, he already has his first grandson.
According to the actor, all life consists of certain cycles. At the moment he is in a cycle where the greatest joy is children. And he considers his first grandson to be the greatest gift from God.
In 2012, Eddie publicly announced that he was in a serious relationship with the American model Paige Butcher. Four years later, Eddie became the father of the ninth child, and Paige's daughter Izzy is the firstborn. Two years later, the couple decided on a second child, their son Max, who will soon be one year old, became them.
So far, Murphy and Butcher have not legalized their relationship, and in interviews they say that they are in no hurry with this event. Although people close to the couple say that the wedding is not far off.
Eddie said that at the moment, career is not a priority for him. The center of life is now focused on the grandson and children. They are now the most important thing that an actor has, all other areas of life come after them. Eddie tries to pay attention to all ten children equally, so it is very difficult to find a balance between family and work. That is why, at this stage of his life, he decided to push his career aside. Now he wants to sit on the sofa in the living room and just look at happy children, to be a father. Previously, great satisfaction was brought by shooting and large fees, but now the experienced emotions are a priority. He can get an emotional response only by playing and raising children.
It is worth recalling that this year the Film Critics Association decided to give Eddie Murphy an honorary award. He will receive it for outstanding roles that he has performed throughout his acting career. His last role in the film "My name is Dolemite" will also be among the famous roles of the actor.
