Eddie Murphy is having another son!

The comedian’s partner, Paige Butcher, revealed the news while speaking to TMZ as she ran errands in Los Angeles on Friday. Butcher, 39, is expecting the couple’s second child together. This is Murphy’s fourth son and 10th child overall.

“Today is just a good day,” Butcher told the outlet as she carried shopping bags in a gray jersey dress that hugged her growing baby bump.

When asked if she and Murphy, 57, were excited about their new addition, she said, “Yes, we are.”

She also revealed the sex of their baby, saying, “It’s going to be a boy.”

A reporter for the outlet jokingly asked if the baby would be named after the famous actor, to which Butcher laughed and said, “Possibly. I don’t know.”

The Australian actress was photographed in August wearing a floral maxi dress that accentuated her growing belly. The couple, who has been together since 2012, already share 2-year-old daughter Izzy Oona.

The legendary actor and comedian has eight other children from previous relationships.
