Eddie Murphy

Beyoncé, Jessica Alba at Kelly Rowland’s Halloween Party

Our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Kelly Rowland hosted a party attended by quite a few of our other past celeb mom features.

The singer herself looked fierce dressed as the outrageous and bombastic character Helen Strangé who model and singer Grace Jones played in the cult classic Eddie Murphy film Boomerang.

Her hubby Tim Witherspoon dressed as Murphy from his stand up comedy motion picture  film Delirious.

Her Destiny’s Child band mate Beyoncé Knowes Carter was there as rapper and fellow Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum rapper Lil Kim when she appeared in rapper Missy Elliot‘s “The Rain” music video while her husband Shawn “Jay Z” Carter dressed as the late rapper Notorious B.I.G. 

Also in attendance was currently preggers Jessica Alba who came dressed as the title character from the movie  Juno.

Fun times!

Comedian Eddie Murphy is a dad again for the ninth time! His longtime girlfriend, Paige Butcher, gave birth to their first child together, a daughter, on Tuesday, May 3rd.

The couple named the new arrival Izzy Oona Murphy.

“Both mother and daughter are doing well,” Murphy’s rep told  UsWeekly in a statement.

Murphy has eight other children including 26-year old son Eric Murphy with Paulette McNeely; 25-year old son Christian Murphy with Tamara Hood; and 22-year old son Myles Murphy, and daughters 25-year old Bria Murphy, 21-year old Shayne Murphy, 15-year old Zola Murphy and 13-year old Bella Murphy ex wife Nicole Mitchel.

After parting with Nicole, he had a one year relationship with former Spice Girl and America’s Got Talent judge Melanie Brown (Mel B) that produced a daughter, Angel Murphy Brown, who is now 9-years old.

6 celebrity couples who split up before baby was born

Bellyitch Rewind
I saw this smokin’ hawt photo of Christina Milian today and thought boy is her ex singer/ mega producer The Dream missing out. The couple was one of several celebrity pairs to split in the middle of a pregnancy and BEFORE the baby was born.
Christina Milian was 8 months pregnant when she filed for divorce from The Dream  in 2010.
Personally, I know of a few friends who wound up splitting with their boyfriend or spouse before having their baby and each of them say it was very challenging being pregnant and not at least having someone to help them through those challenging months. A few have said, in hindsight, they would’ve waited it out until baby was born. Oy! Here are four other celebrities who split before their child was born:
In 2004, four months before delivering her 1st child, son Leni, whose dad is billionaire Flavio Briatore, Heidi Klum started dated Seal, who she later married and had 3 kids with before they too split in 2012.
Rapper Nas and singer Kelis were in the middle of filming their MTV reality TV show when they split while she was 7 months pregnant with their first child together in 2009. 
Alexis Knapp had to get Ryan Phillippe to submit to a paternity test to prove that the child she was carrying was his.  The two split before Knapp confirmed she was pregnant in 2010. 
Ex Spice Girl Melanie Brown too had to force comedian/actor Eddie Murphy to submit to a paternity test to prove he was the father to her then-soon-to-be born daughter Angel Iris born ironically on Murphy’s 47th birthday, April 3, 2007.  The couple had split in 2006 and back then there was no way of proving paternity until the baby was born. 
No one knows for sure who the dad is to Mad Men star January Jones’ first child, son Xander, but she announced she was pregnant in May 2011, five months after splitting with her boyfriend Saturday Night Live‘s  Jason Sudeikis. Rumors swirled that Ashton Kutcher may have been the dad. The two are good  friends.

Edited to Add: I found this post of 12 Celebrities that broke up before the baby was born that Crushable did a year ago which also includes Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen, Tom Brady and Bridget Moynahan, Mary Louise Parker and Billy Crudup and Tiki and Ginny Barber which I so would have added to this list had I remembered about them too!
