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

The couple released a statement through Murphy’s publicist saying Max Charles Murphy was born on Friday and weighed 6lb 11oz.

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 is the 10th child for 57-year-old Murphy, the second child for 39-year-old Butcher, and their second child together.
