Today, we will talk about the family of American actor Eddie Murphy. Specifically, about one of his sons, Miles Mitchell Murphy. Sometimes, his name is spelled Myles Mitchell Murphy. In any case, he is the son of the legendary African-American comedian and actor.
The legendary actor has many children, but it was Miles Murphy that made him a grandfather. In 2019, Miles and his girlfriend welcomed their firstborn child, making Eddie a grandfather.
Despite Myles Murphy having a family and being a grown man, his mother still sees him and other siblings as her babies. Let’s find out more about him.
Who Is His Celebrity Father?
First, we have to talk about the legendary actor and comedian. Born Edward Regan Murphy in April 1961, Eddie is an actor, comedian, and singer. He rose to fame on the sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live, where he was a regular cast member from 1980 to 1984. He also worked as a stand-up comedian, and Comedy Central has him ranked No. 10 on the list of greatest stand-ups of all time.
During his career, Murphy has won a Grammy Award and Emmy Award. Some of his most successful movies include 48 Hrs, Beverly Hills Cop, Trading Places, The Nutty Professor, Dolemite is My Name, Dr. Dolittle, and more.
Born in Brooklyn, New York, he was raised in the borough’s Bushwick neighborhood. His mother Lillian Murphy was a telephone operator, while his father, Charles Edward Murphy, was a transit police officer and an amateur actor. Sadly, his father was murdered in 1969.
In one interview, Eddie said, “My mother and father broke up when I was three and he died when I was eight, so I have very dim memories … He was a victim of the Murphy charm (laughs). A woman stabbed my father. I never got all the logistics. It was supposed to be one of those crimes of passion: ‘If I can’t have you, no one else will kind of deal’”.
His single mother became ill, and eight-year-old Eddie and his older brother Charlie Murphy went on to live in foster care for one year. Years later, he would go on to say that his life in foster developed his sense of humor.
He was 15 years old when he decided to become a comedian. That happened after listening to Richard Pryor’s comedy album That Nigger’s Crazy. On July 9, 1976, Eddie performed in a talent show at the Roosevelt Youth Center. He impersonated Al Green and his song Let’s Stay Together. That led to him getting work in other clubs.
In 1980, he joined the cast of Saturday Night Live. Many credit him for revitalizing the show, including his grown-up version of the Little Rascals character Buckwheat.
His early comedy was characterized by copious profanity and sketches lampooning a diverse group of people. In the 1980s, he released two stand-up specials.
In 1982, he made his big-screen debut in the movie 48 Hrs with Nick Nolte, giving him instant fame and attention. Released during the Christmas season, the movie was an instant hit. The following year, he appeared in the movie Trading Places and continued to amaze fans with movies like Coming to America and Beverly Hills Cop.
Over the course of his career, he has also appeared in the Shrek series, Mulan, Dr. Dolittle, The Nutty Professor, Daddy Day Care, The Haunted Mansion, I Spy, and many more.
Fun fact: Besides being one of the most successful actors, he is also a singer. American actor Eddie Murphy has released three albums to date, How Could It Be, So Happy, and Love’s Alright.
Now let’s talk about Eddie’s son, Miles Mitchell Murphy. Born in November 1992 in Los Angeles, he is the second son of Eddie and ex-American model Mitchell Murphy.
His parents had another child before. But they split for a while and then got back together. When they got back together, Mitchell gave birth to her son Myles Murphy. His parents got married in 1993 after he turned one year old.
Speaking about his education, he attended the BRIT performing art school. There, he was a theatre major. Despite training more at the Rose Bruford Drama School, he didn’t have a successful acting career.
Miles is the second of five children born by his mother and among the 10 fathered by his father.
In 2019, he and his longtime girlfriend Carly Olivia welcomed their daughter Evie Isla Murphy. They have been together for a decade, and in 2019, they made Eddie a proud grandfather.
Fun fact: Evie Murphy is Eddie’s first grandchild. Carly announced on Instagram she and her boyfriend were expecting a baby, sharing an image of an ultrasound scan.
In an interview with Vanity Fair in 2020, the famous American comedian Eddie Murphy stated he was happy to become a grandfather. At the time, Evie was five months old, but he said he hoped she will call him papa after learning to talk.
In November 2022, Myles Mitchell Murphy turned 30 years, and his fiancée shared a cute photo of them on social media. She wrote, “Myles, the love Evie& I have for you is infinite! God will continue to bless you & our whole family with health, happiness, success & blessings. I love you my FIANCE & I can’t wait to marry you. Happy Birthday Baby!”
The Murphy Family
As we said before, Myles is just one of the 10 children in the family. His father has had different relationships and children.
In one interview, Murphy said this about his dad duties, “I love fatherhood. 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. My kids are so great, normal people, and nobody is like the Hollywood jerk kid”. He welcomed his first child in 1989 with his then-girlfriend Paulette McNeely. Let’s take a look at the Murphy family.
Eric Murphy is the eldest child in the family, born in July 1989. He has kept himself out of the spotlight. But things changed when he began dating Martin Lawrence’s daughter, Jasmin. The two made their relationship public in June 2021.
Bria Murphy is Eddie’s second child and his first daughter. He welcomed her in November 1989 with his then-wife, Nicole Mitchell. Nicole and Eddie were married from 1993 to 2006.
Bria has several TV and movie credits to her name, including the 2017 drama Conflict of Interest and Hollywood Exes in 2014.
Eddie’s third child, Christian Murphy has also tried acting, appearing in Cougar’s Inc. alongside Jim Belushi in 2011. His mother is Tamara Hood, a woman Eddie dated before getting married to Miles’ mother.
Shayne Audra Murphy
At the time Shayne Audra Murphy was born, Eddie and his wife Nicole were already married. Unlike most of the Murphy children, Shayne is quite active on Instagram. Her photos range from bikini pictures to photos of her dog.
Zola Ivy Murphy
Eddie’s sixth child, Zola Ivy Murphy was born in December 1999. She is also active on Instagram, with most of her posts being selfies.
Zola loves to showcase her fashionable style on Instagram. She was also part of the VH1 reality show Hollywood Exes with her mother and sisters in 2014.
Bella Zahra Murphy
Bella is Eddie’s seventh child and the last one he had with his wife Nicole Murphy. Bella is the one that has made a name in the movie industry. She was part of the Hulu comedy series Dollface and the 2021 movie, Coming 2 America. In that movie, she shared the screen with her father.
Angel Iris Murphy Brown
Angel Iris Murphy Brown is Eddie’s eighth child. Born in April 2007, she is the first one he shares with Melanie Brown, otherwise known as Mel B from the Spice Girls.
Mel B and Eddie had a nasty support battle when Angel was only four months old. But the former couple is on better terms now. Angel has been with her father and other siblings on vacation.
Izzy Oona Murphy
Eddie’s ninth child was born in May 2016. He shares her with his fiancé Paige Butcher. The two have been dating since 2012 and got engaged in September 2018.
Max Charles Murphy
Max Charles Murphy is Eddie’s young child. He is also the son of Eddie and Paige, their first son and second child together.
Paige debuted her baby bump in August 2018. That was one month before Eddie proposed to her.
Is He On Social Media?
Miles Mitchel Murphy is not active on social media. His fiancée Carly Olivia, on the other hand, is quite active on Instagram. Sometimes, she shares photos with Eddie’s son.
Fun fact: his father, despite being one of the most famous actors and comedians, is not active on social media.
As we said before, there is no information about the professional career and earnings of Myles Murphy. With that in mind, we cannot talk about possible net worth.
He benefits from his father’s fortune, which is reported at $200 million.
