PROUD PARENTS: Eddie and Paige

Eddie Murphy has become a father again - for the 10th time!

The comedian and actor and his girlfriend Paige Butcher, who already have two-year-old daughter Izzy Oona together, welcomed the baby boy on Friday.

The couple has named the laaitie Max Charles Murphy, and he came into the world weighing just over 3kg and measuring 48cm long.

His middle name is said to be a tribute to Eddie’s older brother and fellow comedian Charlie Murphy, who died of leukaemia last year.

Eddie, 57, and Paige, 39, an Australian model and actress, have been together since 2012.

The Beverly Hills Cop star has eight other children.

His oldest, Eric, whose mother is Paulette McNeely, was born in 1989.

His second son, Christian, with ex-girlfriend Tamara Hood, was born a year later.

He went on to have five children - Bria, Myles, Shayne, Zola and Bella - with his now ex-wife Nicole Mitchell.

Eddie later dated Spice Girl Mel B, who gave birth to Angel Iris Murphy Brown in 2007.

He was famously involved in a custody battle with Mel B after demanding a paternity test, saying: “I don’t know whose child that is until it comes out and has a blood test.”
