Congratulations are in order for Eddie Murphy and his girlfriend, Paige Butcher!

The Shrek actor's ladylove gave birth to daughter Izzy Oona Murphy Tuesday morning, his rep confirms to E! News. Izzy delivered weighing 7 lbs., 15 oz. and was 19.5 inches. "Both mother and daughter are doing well," the rep tells E! News. This is the first child for Butcher and ninth child for Murphy.

Murphy's oldest children are Eric, with ex-girlfriend Paulette McNeely, and Christian, with ex-girlfriend Tamara Hood. He has five more children with ex-wife Nicole Mitchell: Bria, Myles, Shayne, Zola, and Bella. He also shares 9-year-old Angel with former Spice Girls member Melanie "Mel B" Brown.

The comedian, 55, and Butcher, 36, announced in November that they were expecting, saying they were "pleased to announce that they are expecting a child in May." They didn't reveal the sex at the time, but it turns out they were having a baby girl!

The couple has been together for more than four years, but they lead a very private life outside of the spotlight. In fact, Butcher has been candid about her reasoning for staying off social media. "I'm in a relationship with a celebrity, so I felt like there's already enough of me out there," the Australian star told Vanity Fair in 2013. "I felt like I was giving out too much information. I was giving people too much access. I like to keep as much private as possible now."

Congratulations again to the happy couple!
