The 57-year-old comedian and actor and his girlfriend Butcher, 39 – who already have two-year-old daughter Izzy Oona together – have welcomed their second child together, and Murphy’s 10th overall, after Butcher gave birth to a baby boy on Friday.

And Murphy previously admitted that all of his kids are “totally different from each other”.
He shared: “You know what is funny? None of my kids is like me, and I’m sure parents say this all the time, they are all totally different from each other. None of them is chips off the old block. They all have their own thing, They’re good kids.”

Butcher is very close with Murphy’s kids. They are a very special and happy family. They vacation and spend holidays together. Butcher loves being a mom and is very involved. She takes her daughter to the park and for play dates.”
