Eddie Murphy and his fiance Paige Butcher have a new baby boy.

The couple released a statement through Murphy’s publicist on Monday saying Max Charles Murphy was born on Friday and weighed 6 pounds, 11 ounces.

The boy’s middle name is a tribute to Murphy’s older brother and fellow comedian Charlie Murphy, who died of leukaemia last year.

It’s the 10th child for the 57-year-old Eddie Murphy, the second child for the 39-year-old Butcher, and the couple’s second child together.

The ‘Nutty Professor’ and ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ actor has been dating the Australian model and actress since 2012, and they recently became engaged.

The statement says Butcher and the baby are doing well.

Murphy and Butcher also have a two-year-old daughter, Izzy.

Murphy’s oldest child, Eric, is 29.
