Time to shut down the baby factory, Eddie, a long time ago.

Damn good thing he can afford child support!

@Anonymous: I was thinking the exact same thing. He needs to tie it up.

Callie on

Wow, he should really find another hobby besides sex!

Kim on

He has 9 children by 4 different woman. He has been busy.Smh.

I think that these women who have kids with men who have kids with multiple females are WAY BEYOND STUPID!!! Even if the man can afford the child support.

I know that Eddie needs to put a cap on it, and he can afford the child support, but I think he’s being selfish having a kid at his age. He may not even be alive when the kid reaches at least the fifth grade.

bb on

I feel a little bad for the first wife who was pregnant off and on for 13 years and had 7 kids with him! You’d think that’d be enough!

alex on

Do some research people.com!Nicole has 5 kids for him,and not 7! The first 2 kids are from 2 previous relationships.

Jennifer on

IMHO, women who have kids with men who have other kids by multiple women are WAY BEYOND STUPID!!!

I know that he needs to put a cap on it, and he can afford the child support, but I think about it like this…continuing to have kids at his age is selfish. He may not even be alive when the kid reaches at least Junior High.

Jude74 on

Well he happens to be funny and fine. I applaud his additions to the genetic pool cuz you know his women are gorgeous to. Congrats!

Jenna on

gross. keep it in your pants.

Jenna on

these sluts love their paychecks!!!! keep it in your pants dude.

Sure, nine kids are a lot, but….compared to people like the Duggars and their likes, who are extremly irresponsible about the whole thing, this is nothing ( and, considering that Eddie is famous for more than the amount of offspring he produced, his children might even turn out as funny as their dad).
Besides, I think that maybe it’s not so much about untied tubes but the genuine desire to have child together (it’s her first).

Knosound on

What a dumb fck. There is no need to keep making babies at the age of 55. I aint impressed. “You want to impress me, wear a condom.”

kb on

snip snip

Mandi on

He only has child support for 3 maybe 4 of them. The rest are adults. I agree it is time for snip snip.

Kay on

When your first five kids are old enough to be your youngest parent instead of sibling, it’s time to stop having kids! Not to mention having to send child support to three different women. SMH.

Fantastic, he has his own baseball team.

ddnnj on

Fantastic, he has his own baseball team.

Just My Opinion on

Is he claiming this one? He swore he wasn’t the father of Mel B’s daughter.

Kate Middleman on

He needs to learn to bag it up. Goodness.

BigBrownEyes on

Izzy is an ugly name especially for a girl… Eddie, the older she gets, you’re gonna look more like her Grandpa her daddy… :):):)

guest on

Dude…tie that fu*$er in a knot

Dajoka on

For God’s Sake Eddie, zip it or snip it!

guest on

WTF is it with men, especially black men, that they think they must “spread their seed” to as many women as possible. he is entirely TOo old to be having kids at his age. Grow up already and just make sure you pay all the child support to all those that you have sired….

Anonymous on

He needs to keep it in his pants

MissMel on

@Abby Whether you approve of the Duggars or not, they are a married couple who had all of their children together and have raised them together. Eddie has had 9 kids with what appears to be 5 different women and he was only married to one of them. He denied Angel was even his until DNA tests proved it and Mel B has said many times he doesn’t see his daughter and she doesn’t see her siblings. Whether he can afford the child support or not, it’s disgusting, irresponsible behavior.

Sue on

Day-um Eddie!

the grovers on

Sad how two kids from two different moms are the same age. Like he jumped from one bed to another.

D on

I’m sorry, BUT he is one UGLY man!

D on

I’m sorry but he’s one UGLY man!!

Real on

You people are serious haters. What difference does it make how many kids he has. Is he asking any of you to pay child support for any of them?? I don’t think so. And who cares how old he is, as long as he’s a loving father to his child, it shouldn’t matter.

Von on

He has nine kids with different women and he is only 55, way to go.

HELP! on

Even if he can afford child support how good of father can someone be when your children are from four different women.

mamatothree on

I know I have preschoolers when my first thought was “like Izzy from Jake and the Neverland Pirates and Oona from Bubble Guppies?” It does seem like it isn’t a whole name.

Rob on

I got P@#!*y fallin out my pockets, excuse me that’s my p#@*y!

Anonymous on

Who cares??? Eddie Murphy can father a hundred children but he’s still down low. Hey Murphy how’s the transvestite that you were in the car accident with??? Lmao.

Amber on

Yeah ~ conveniently forgotten little tidbit there and definitely not an isolated incident.

Anonymous on

Yeah he has money to support all his children!

KL on

Holy crap he needs to give it a break already….. but Congrats to them!! Babies are soo sweet🙂

ellie bee on

Eddie? why don’t your children have a relationship with their step brothers/sisters???? congrats on the new addition BTW
BUTTTTT….these children deserve to know each other.
