Oh, baby!

Comedian Eddie Murphy is expecting his tenth child with girlfriend Paige Butcher at the age of 57. On Tuesday, a rep for the actor told E! News, "Eddie Murphy and longtime girlfriend Paige Butcher are pleased to announce that they are expecting their second child in December."

The new bun in the oven will join older sister, Izzy Oona Murphy, in the Butcher-Murphy household, in addition to sisters Bria, 28, Shayne, 23, Zola, 18, Bella, 16,and brother Miles, 25, who come from Murphy's previous relationship with Nicole Mitchell Murphy. Not to forget Eric, 29, from Murphy's ex Paulette McNeely and Christian, 27, with Tamara Hood. And then Angel, 11, who Eddie shares with Melanie "Mel B" Brown.

And as surprising as the news is, Eddie appears to be among the fathers in Hollywood who are more than happy to welcome more children, when others would be pleased about their empty nest. 

While some fathers like George Clooney took their sweet time to have their first child, other fathers were eager to continue expanding their family well into their fifties. To see which celebs became happy dads after 50, check out the gallery below!
