Murphy, 54, and Butcher, 36, have been dating for nearly four years. Just last month, they hit the red carpet at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. as the comedian was honored with the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. They kept the baby news on the low.


Murphy's children include 26-year-old Eric (with ex-girlfriend Paulette McNeely) and 25-year-old Christian (with ex-girlfriend Tamara Hood). He also shares five children with wife Nicole Murphy (Bria, 25, Myles, 22, Shayne, 21, Zola, 15, and Bella, 13) and an 8-year-old daughter named Angel with former Spice Girl Melanie "Mel B" Brown.
