Eddie Murphy had been married to his ex-wife Nicole Murphy from 1993 to 2006. The actor met the former model in 1988 at an NAACP Image Awards show. They lived together for almost two years before getting married.
They had tied the knot at the Grand Ballroom of The Plaza Hotel in New York City. Murphy and Mitchell share five children together; Bria, Myles, Shayne, Zola, and Bella. They had seemed like the perfect couple until August 2005. Mitchell filed for divorce, citing "irreconcilable differences" and their divorce was finalized on April 17, 2006.
Despite their divorce in 2006, Nicole and Eddie continue to co-parent their children peacefully. They maintain a great relationship especially when parenting their children.
In 2012, Nicole,50, said in a statement, “Eddie and I are friends; he’s my babies’ daddy, so we speak to each other and have a great relationship and I think that’s important when you have children involved.”
Last year, rumor had it that the stunning former model was seeing someone new. Nicole was seen spending a relaxed afternoon with a handsome mystery man. The man was the second man to be linked to Nicole after her short relationship with stuntman Diego Ward.
She has been linked to Television host Michael Strahan. Nicole and Michael started dating just after her divorce from comedian Eddie Murphy. The duo even got engaged in 2009 unfortunately in 2014 they broke it off.
Around the time rumors of her new man swirled, Nicole also launched her own anti-aging skincare brand. It remains unknown who she is dating but the stunning mum-of-five looks stunning.
She has an impressive physique complete with toned abs. However, Nicole also revealed that she has not always been particular about her body. In an interview she confessed that she only started paying attention to her body when she encountered difficulty losing weight after her second pregnancy.
“When I first had my first baby, I wasn’t even thinking about working out. I didn’t go to the gym. Then the more kids I started having, it was like, ‘I need to work out because I’m not the same.'” said Nicole.
The “Hollywood Exes” star now uses a combination of cardio exercises, weightlifting, and healthy eating to stay fit. She recommends taking one hour out of each day to work out.
