Eddie Murphy and Paige Butcher are ''very happy'' to be expecting a child.

The couple - who already share two-year-old daughter Izzy Oona together - can't wait to add to their family with their new arrival.

A source told People magazine: ''They are very happy to expect another baby. They wished for a younger sibling for their daughter. They live a pretty low-key life. They are all about family. Paige is very close with Eddie's kids. They are a very special and happy family. They vacation and spend holidays together. Paige loves being a mom and is very involved. She takes her daughter to the park and for play dates.''

Eddie previously revealed he is set to be a father for a 10th time.

A rep for Eddie is quoted as saying: ''Eddie Murphy and long-time girlfriend Paige Butcher are pleased to announce that they are expecting their second child in December.''

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. He 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.

And Eddie previously admitted that all of his kids are ''totally different from each other''.

He shared: ''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.''
