Who is Eddie Murphy?

Edward Regan ‘Eddie’ Murphy is a comedian, actor, producer, writer, and singer who rose to prominence thanks to his appearance on the Saturday Night Live show, whose regular member he was in the early ’80s.

He was born in Brooklyn, New York City to his parents Lillian and Charles Edward, a telephone operator, and transit police officer, respectively. Eddie celebrates his birthday on 3 April, and since he was born in 1961, he recently celebrated his 61st.

When his parents separated, Eddie and his brother Charlie lived with Lillian. In 1969, their father was murdered, allegedly by his mistress, and their mother took ill, so the boys lived in foster care until their mother recovered. Eventually, their mother remarried Vernon Lynch, and Eddie spent most of his childhood in Roosevelt, New York.

, Eddie dreamed of becoming a comedian from when he was a teenager, and his idols were Bill Cosby and Robin Williams. He made his acting debut as Reggie Hammond in the 1982 movie “48 Hrs.”, opposite Nick Nolt, and Eddie was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for New Star of the Year in a Motion Picture – Male.

He followed with his roles in “Trading Places” (1983) and “Best Defense” (1984), before he was seen playing one of his most notable roles as Axel Foley in “Beverly Hills Cop”, also in 1984.

The list of Eddie’s roles is too long, however, worth mentioning are his roles in “The Golden Child” (1986), “Coming to America” (1988), “Doctor Dolittle” (1998), and “Daddy Day Care” (2003), among many others.

Eddie was nominated for the Oscar for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for his portrayal of James ‘Thunder’ Early in the 2006 movie “Dreamgirls”, also starring Jamie Foxx and Beyoncé.

His most notable voice role is certainly Donkey from the “Shrek” franchise.

Speaking of his personal life, many people have commented that Eddie didn’t have much luck when it comes to love. He was in a relationship with Paulette McNeely, who gave birth to his first son, Eric in 1989, and in the following year, his new girlfriend, Tamara Hood, gave birth to his second son, Christian.

Eddie’s first wife was Nicole Mitchell with whom he was in a relationship and lived together from 1991; the two married on 18 March 1993, and they have five children, namely Bella, Bria, Zola, Myles and Shayne. Nicole filed for divorce in 2005, finalized in April 2006.

Soon after his divorce, Eddie began dating one of the Spice Girls members, Melanie Brown also known as Mel B. The news about Mel B being pregnant saying that Eddie is the father started various rumors after he stated that he doesn’t know who the child’s father is. Mel B gave birth on Eddie’s birthday in 2007, and the DNA test showed that he is the father, although it seems that until 2010, he had no contact with the girl.
