The 57-year-old actor is engaged to girlfriend Paige Butcher, who is pregnant with their second child and his 10th overall, his rep confirmed to E! News on Friday. There had been recent speculation that the two, who share a 2-year-old daughter named Izzy, were engaged after the 39-year-old model was spotted out and about in Los Angeles wearing a large diamond ring earlier this week.

In 2008, the actor and producer Tracey Edmonds exchanged vows with Eddie Murphy in a wedding ceremony abroad but split two weeks later and never made their marriage official.
