Is Eddie Murphy married to Paige Butcher?

During the final weekend of June, Eddie Murphy appeared on The New York TimesThe Interview podcast.

The discussion covered an array of topics from Eddie Murphy’s storied career leading up to the premiere of Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F on Netflix.

Twice during the interview, he made reference to his “wife” — referring to Paige Butcher, whom the world had previously believed to be his fiancee.

Eddie Murphy and Paige Butcher began dating in 2012. Six years later, in 2018, the two became engaged. To the best of anyone’s knowledge, the two had not married.

However, while admitting to being “so out of touch” with both things that are popular and who young celebrities are (because he is 63; that’s normal), he used the unexpected label.

“I used to be so hip, I used to know who everybody was,” the comedian recalled. “And now there’s just so much stuff. [I] ask my wife, ‘Who’s this person?’”

Twice, Eddie Murphy called Paige Butcher his ‘wife’

Later, he admitted to cringe television viewing habits that many people would not confess to under torture.

“I watch every night at six o’clock when I eat dinner, watch Steve Harvey and Family Feud. And on Tuesdays I watch The Masked Singer,” Eddie Murphy acknowledged.

“My wife and I, we watch all those shows with singing competitions and that kind of stuff,” he continued. Again he referred to Paige as his “wife.” (After this, he began discussing The Golden Bachelor divorce)

One final note was that, at the Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F premiere just a couple of weeks ahead of the podcast episode, people noticed a conspicuous ring.

Notably, he also wore this to other events — in 2023 and as far back as 2020.

Some wonder if this could be a wedding band, and if the two married in 2020, during or just before the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic. Others suspect that the ring is simply a ring and not a wedding band.

Who is Paige Butcher?

Paige Butcher is an Australian model and actress who was born in 1979. In 1994, she won that year’s Cover Girl Cosmetics Supermodel Search. She had already entered modeling on the advice of family a couple of years earlier.

Since then, she has enjoyed modeling contracts, international work trips, and landed the cover of Maxim in 2004.

This is more or less when she began to delve into acting. She had a small role in 2003’s Something’s Gotta Give. And, in 2006, she appeared as an extra in Big Momma’s House 2.
