Eddie Murphy's 10th child will be a baby boy.

The 57-year-old actor is expecting another addition to his brood, which will be his second kid with long-term girlfriend Paige Butcher - who he has been dating since 2012 - who is due to give birth in December, and it has now been revealed the new arrival will be a boy.

Paige told TMZ: ''It's going to be a boy.''

And when asked if the pair were excited, the 39-year-old beauty added: ''Yes, we are!''

News of Paige's pregnancy was confirmed by the 'Beverly Hills Cop' star's representative last month.

They said: ''Eddie Murphy and long-time girlfriend Paige Butcher are pleased to announce that they are expecting their second child in December.''

The impending arrival will be a brother or sister to Eddie and Paige's first child together, two-year-old daughter Izzy, who was born in May 2016, weighing 7lbs 15oz.

The 'Shrek' star already has five children, Bria, 28, Miles, 25, Shayne, 23, Zola, 18, and Bella, 16, with ex-wife Nicole Murphey, who he split from in 2006 after 22 years of marriage.

The 'Coming to America' actor also has a 29-year-old son, Eric, 26, with Paulette McNeely, as well as a son Christian, 27, with Tamara Hood, and 11-year-old daughter Angel with Spice Girls singer Mel B.

Eddie previously admitted he ''got lucky'' with his children, because they are all so well behaved.

He said: ''I really got lucky with my kids. There really isn't a bad one in the bunch, everyone turned out to be really good people.''

The 'Norbit' star also previously said that all of his kids are ''totally different from each other''.

He said: ''You know what is funny? None of my kids are like me, and I'm sure parents say this all of the time, they are all totally different from each other.

''None of them are chips off the old block. They all have their own thing, They're good kids.''
