The bigger your family gets, the more that it becomes an Olympic feat to get a great family photo. So imagine being Eddie Murphy, who’s got 10 kids. It’s not that surprising that, until now, he has reportedly never posed in a photo with all 10 of his kids at once.
Now that he has, he should definitely frame it and keep it on his mantel for the next 20 years — which is likely the next time this rare occurrence will take place.
Eddie’s eldest daughter, Bria Murphy, posted the photo on Instagram on Christmas.
The entire family spent the holiday together, and they posed for a lovely photo by the stairwell.
In the photo, every one of Eddie’s 10 kids is smiling at the camera. Even his newborn baby Max, who turns 1 month on December 30, is in the shot.
Eddie’s mom, Lillian Murphy, is also in the photo, along with his fiancée (and Max’s mom), Paige Butcher, and Paige’s mother.
In case you missed the memo, Eddie Murphy has A LOT of kids.
Recently, he posed for what is reportedly the very first public photo of him with all 10 of his children together.
Bria, Eddie’s eldest daughter, posted the photo on Instagram on Christmas.
The photo is one of several Christmas portraits that the family took together. It includes Eddie’s five children with his ex-wife, Nicole Mitchell: Bella, 16; Zola, 19; Shayne, 24; Miles, 26; and Bria, 29.
Also pictured is Eddie’s 29-year-old son, Eric, with Paulette McNeely.
And his son with Tamara Hood: Christian, 28.
And (almost done here!) his daughter with Mel B, aka Scary Spice: Angel Iris, 11
Second-to-last, there’s 2-year-old Izzy, who is Eddie’s oldest child with his current fiancée, Paige.
Last but not least, there’s baby Max, who will soon turn 1 month old.
The Christmas photo is the first glimpse we’ve gotten of this adorable nugget.
Paige just gave birth to Max on November 30.
They wanted a younger sibling for Izzy — as if eight older siblings weren’t enough!
Paige, a 39-year-old model, is reportedly also very close with Eddie’s other kids.
“They are a very special and happy family. They vacation and spend holidays together,” one source told People.
The couple confirmed their engagement in September, shortly after announcing Paige’s second pregnancy.
Despite having more kids than most parents can even fathom, Eddie somehow manages to be a great, engaged dad to all 10 of his kids, a source told People.
His 11-year-old, Angel, for example, “texts Eddie and is on the phone with him all the time. She loves her dad.”
Angel can also expect “150 boxes under the tree” each Christmas.
Multiplied by 10 kids, that means there must’ve been approximately 1,500 gifts just out of the frame of that rare, lovely family photo.
The Murphy family sure looks like they had a very merry Christmas!
