Who is Eddie Murphy?

Edward Regan ‘Eddie’ Murphy was born in New York City USA, on 3 April 1961, so his zodiac sign is Aries and he holds American nationality.

Eddie Murphy

He is an actor, voice actor, comedian and singer known worldwide for his roles in movies such as “The Nutty Professor”, “Coming to America”, and “Meet Dave”. Eddie was raised in the Bushwick neighborhood of New York City by his mother Lillian, who was a telephone operator, and initially his father named Charles Edward Murphy but who died in 1969 at the age of 29, and was a policeman, comedian, and actor.

His parents split when Eddie was three years old and Charles died when Eddie was eight after being stabbed by a woman who was allegedly in love with him. Eddie and his older brother Charlie had to live in foster care for a year after Lillian became ill, and Eddie credits the time spent in foster care to the development of his sense of humor.

He launched his career on 9 July 1976, when he performed at a talent show impersonating famous singer Al Green. He was instantly loved by the audience, and so then went on to perform in clubs around New York City, actually skipping school to do so. He released his first self-titled stand-up comedy special in 1982, and his second – “Delirious” – in 1983.

Eddie made his debut movie appearance in 1982 in the film “48 Hrs” which was a hit, then starred in “Trading Places” in 1983 alongside Dan Aykroyd, another hit and Eddie’s first collaboration with the director John Landis, who would later direct “Coming to America” in 1988, and “Beverly Hills Cop III” in 1994, both of which Eddie starred in.

Eddie is also a singer, having released his debut album entitled “How Could It Be” in 1985, and his second album “Love’s Alright” in the early ‘90s.

Eddie has a son born in 1989 with Paulette McNeely, one of his first girlfriends, and another son with Tamara Hood. He met Nicole Mitchell in 1988 and has five children with her – they married on 18 March 1993, and divorced in August 2005. He then dated Melanie Brown, but when she  became pregnant carrying Angel, Eddie was not sure the child was his, and had a DNA test done upon her birth, which showed that she was indeed his daughter. He went on to marry Tracey Edmonds on 1 January 2008, but the two split not long after, and he began dating Paige Butcher in 2012 – they became engaged in September 2018, and shortly afterwards they had a son.
