Can you say Daddy Day Care?!

Lawd have mercy, but Eddie Murphy is going to be a father for the ninth time.

The 54-year-old Norbit star is expecting his first child with 36-year-old girlfriend Paige Butcher in May, his rep confirmed to Entertainment Tonight.

Murphy has five children with ex-wife Nicole Mitchell, one with ex-girlfriend Paulette McNeely, one with ex-girlfriend Tamara Hood and an eight-year-old daughter, Angel, with Spice Girl Melanie Brown.

Eddie and Paige, who is an Australian model, have been dating for over three years.

While no stranger to being a family man, the SNL alum is also known for his good deeds, having famously helped out a transgender prostitute by giving her a ride in 1997.

Congrats to the expectant couple.
