With a career spanning many decades, Eddie Murphy has cemented his place in the pop culture zeitgeist.
The legendary funnyman has done everything from standup (“Raw,” “Delirious”) to voiceovers (“Shrek”). And even at this stage in his life, he proved he can still get accolades and audiences with critically-acclaimed performances (such as 2019’s “Dolemite is My Name”) and commercially successful sequels (Amazon’s “Coming 2 America,” the long-overdue follow-up to his super-smash 1988 comedy film).
And as a result of his groundbreaking, influential career, Eddie Murphy has amassed a net worth of $200 million, per Celebrity Net Worth. Per Business Insider, too, as of 2018, Murphy was the tenth-highest grossing actor at the U.S. box office (And, in case you’re wondering, his highest-grossing film was “Shrek 2,” with a total of $441.2 million in box office receipts to its credit).
But while these accomplishments are nothing if not impressive, Eddie Murphy himself has stated that all of this pales in comparison to his accomplishments as a father.
“I love fatherhood,” he told People. “The whole idea of being out there and doing three movies a year, that s— is over … I found over and over again and along the way I realized that if you put your children first you never make a bad decision.”
Let’s take a look at how Murphy’s ten children are honoring his impressive legacy.
