Eddie Murphy is famous for his big brood, but he’s not the only guy in Hollywood who has a lot of children. To date, the comedian has welcomed 10 kids, and while he loves being a dad, caring for a large family certainly has its hurdles.
“Men kind of look at me like, ‘He’s crazy. How much did that s–t cost?’” he joked during a previous appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. We can only imagine, but with an estimated net worth of $200 million, we’re sure it’s no problem. He recently became a grandfather for the first time as well, and couldn’t help but gush over his newest role. “I like it, I’m happy with it,” he said.
With such a big family, you might think the actor would be ready to give up his career in Hollywood to focus on being a stay-at-home dad, but it’s actually the opposite. He’s been working harder than ever to support his big family. The Nutty Professor star was nominated for an award at the 2020 Golden Globes for his performance as comedian Rudy Ray Moore in Netflix’s Dolemite Is My Name.
But he’s not the only Hollywood star with a huge, supportive family behind him. There are plenty of other A-listers who made their many kids their priority. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt‘s brood clocks in at six kids, the same amount Madonna has. Donnie and Marie Osmond both have a swarm of now-adult children (and several grandkids, too!) Donnie is the proud dad of five kids, while his sister has eight.
Sadly, Marie’s son Michael died in 2010. If it weren’t for her big family, the singer admits she would have struggled to carry on. “With my son, to get through that, I sang — and a lot of people judged me for going back to work so quickly,” she said. “But I have seven other children who needed to keep living and that was how I processed my pain. Music is a powerful thing. When you stop loving music, you die. Music has always been there for me, through the highs and the lows.”
