Actor, writer, producer, comedian, and singer, Eddie Murphy, has without a doubt, passed on his gorgeous genes to his first grandchild as Evie mesmerizes fans with her beauty in recent photos.
Evie made the father of ten a grandfather a few months after the birth of his tenth child. Even though she is very young, Evie has managed to capture hearts on social media.
The two-year-old was born to Eddie’s fourth son, and she sure is loving the attention she’s getting from her doting family.
Evie Isla Murphy was born on July 2, 2019, to Eddie Murphy’s son, Miles Mitchell Murphy, and his longtime partner, Carly Olivia Fink; she is Eddie Murphy’s first grandchild.
Miles, a writer, is Eddie’s son whom he had with his ex-wife Nicole Murphy in 1992. He has four siblings who share the same mother with him and ten siblings with the same father.
Five months before Evie was born, Eddie had welcomed his son and tenth child with his fiancée, Paige Butcher. The comedian was also gracious to find humor in this scenario. He said,
“My son is my granddaughter’s uncle.”
Evie is also Nicole’s first granddaughter, and she makes sure to celebrate her on Instagram regularly. Recently, she took to the photo-sharing platform to celebrate her adorable granddaughter once again.
The photo she shared was the same as Carly had earlier shared on her page. Evie posed for the pictures in an all-white ensemble while standing in a room.
For the picture, her hair was tied up in a bun with sleek edges to die for. In the first two slides, she struck the perfect “unlooking” pose, while the next two slides find her laughing with the cutest of laughs.
To these images, fans have been falling heads over heels for the adorable beauty. While one compared her with a doll, another called her the most beautiful girl in the world.
In another comment, a fan said she’s “fierce, fly, and flawless,” while another in awe says Evie gets more gorgeous by the day. These were just a few of the comments that have been dropped as they praised Evie’s beauty.
Evie turned two in July 2021, and her parents threw her a birthday party. The picture posted by her mum on Instagram had a caption with her mum professing how much she is loved.
Her mum went on to say that she couldn’t believe her baby was already two. In the photos, Evie wore a burgundy dress and white slides before changing into a mustard yellow dress matching her honey bee cake.
Knowing how much her parents love her, it is evident that she’s a daddy’s girl. In one of the photos her mum shared on Instagram, Evie is seen being cuddled by her dad before sitting comfortably on his laps to enjoy his company.
In another image, Evie is celebrating her dad’s birthday with him on the beach. For this outing, she was all smiles as she donned a yellow pineapple outfit, and in the third slide, she had a yellow bucket hat for the sun.
In the fourth slide, she hangs out with her dad on the couch while he tickles her and makes her laugh. The next slide sees her tugging his shorts as he plays a game and the final slide is a video of her dad rocking her.
While Evie is a regular feature on her mother’s Instagram page, she is rarely seen in pictures with her famous grandad. However, there is a family portrait taken when Evie was a baby.
They took on this rare photo of Eddie and Evie the Christmas Evie was born. Eddie has Evie on his lap in the photo, and her parents are all smiles while Evie looks at the photographer, probably wondering what is going on.
Eddie believes that everything happens in cycles, and he is currently in a cycle where there is no higher blessing than having a child and no sweeter blessing than seeing his grandchild.
For some artists, their legacies become their work. However, for Eddie, the case is different as his legacy is his children and family. He once revealed,
“My children are everything to me.”
Eddie may have graced our screens with several roles, but his all-time favorite role is the role of being a dad. He believes that you will never make a bad decision if you always put your children first.
He’s also very proud that his kids are smart and trying to do stuff with their lives. He feels blessed and lucky that there is no bad seed among them.
The cool swell dad and now grandfather does not want to be addressed as a granddad as he feels it doesn’t sound or feel right. He prefers to be called Papa.
