Eddie Murphy and fiance have baby boy, his 10th child

Eddie Murphy and his fiance Paige Butcher have a new baby boy.

The couple released a statement through Murphy's publicist overnight saying Max Charles Murphy was born Saturday and weighed 6 pounds, 11 ounces (2.9kg).

The boy's middle name is a tribute to Murphy's older brother and fellow comedian Charlie Murphy, who died of leukemia last year.

It's the 10th child for the 57-year-old Eddie Murphy, the second child for the 39-year-old Butcher, and the couple's second child together.

The Nutty Professor and Beverly Hills Cop actor has been dating the Australian model and actress since 2012, and they recently became engaged.

The statement says Butcher and the baby are doing well.

Murphy and Butcher also have a 2-year-old daughter, Izzy.

Murphy's oldest child, Eric, is 29.

Jenny Mollen, Jason Briggs, Ashley Tisdale, Janet Montgomery, Bria Murphy and other celebrities attend the Los Angeles premiere of 'Amateur Night' held at the ArcLight Hollywood, California.
