Eddie Murphy ‘Cool With Son Dating Martin Lawrence’s Daughter

Eddie Murphy 'Cool With Son Dating Martin Lawrence’s Daughter


Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence are comedy legends who’ve worked together on classics like “Boomerang” and “Life.” Now, there’s a chance those won’t be their only notable collaborations.

Eddie’s oldest son Eric Murphy is currently dating Martin’s oldest daughter Jasmine. The relationship has led to several humorous quips about the couple’s possible future.

“They’re both beautiful, they look amazing together — and it’s funny, everybody’s like, ‘What is that baby gonna be funny?’” Murphy told “CBS Mornings.” “Our gene pool is gonna make this funny baby.”

He added: “If they ever get married and have a child, I am expecting the child to be funny.”

Everyone slow down! They’re just dating, so relax on the baby talk. However, it’s gotta be a relief for them to know that their families get along. The “Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F” star explained that when he and his old friend found out about their kids dating, “We just was like, ‘It’s cool.’ Yeah, it was cool. We thought it was cool.”

As “cool” as everything is right now, there does seem to be a possible sticking point in the future. If Eric and Jasmine go the distance, Martin is already jockeying to get the “Shrek” star to pay for the wedding.

“I’m gonna try to get Eddie to pay for it,” he told Jimmy Kimmel in 2022.

As you would imagine, this didn’t go over well with Eddie, who responded to ETalk, saying, “No, no, no, no, no. That’s not how it goes. My daughter just got married, and I had to pay. I really had to pay. And you have to do the same, Martin. Don’t try to switch it up, don’t try to change no shit, do no Hollywood switch. You’re paying for the wedding. If it goes down, Martin is paying. And the wedding better be wonderful.”

We’re not trying to put any extra pressure on these kids, but if there is a wedding, please make it into a reality show. Grumpy old men Eddie and Martin planning their kids’ wedding sounds hilarious.
