Eddie Murphy recently sat down on Marc Maron‘s podcast where he revealed how his kids always come before his career.
Murphy is father to 10 — that’s right, count em’ 10 kids.
During the podcast he shared: “I am going to be 60 in April and I have all these babies. I love fatherhood.”
He added: “The whole idea of being out there and doing three movies a year, that’s over … I found over and over again and along the way I realised that if you put your children first you never make a bad decision.”
Murphy is father to 31-year-old Eric, Bria (31), 30-year-old Christian, Myles (28), 26-year-old Shayne, 21-year-old Zola, 19-year-old Bella and Angel (13).
And in November of 2018, the actor and his fiancee Paige Butcher welcomed a baby boy named Max Charles.
The two also share 4-year-old daughter Izzy together.
He signed off the podcast saying, “My kids are smart and are trying to do stuff. I am blessed with my kids. I really, really got lucky.”
During the podcast, the actor-comedian added:
“When you hit a crossroads moment or you have got some s**t , you think, ‘Well, what is best for my children?’ If you go that route then you never make a bad decision.” He added,
“I am so blessed with my kids, I don’t have one bad seed. I don’t have any like ‘Oh you are the one.’ I don’t have any of that. My kids are so great, normal people and nobody is like the Hollywood jerk kid.”
