Since 2006, Eddie Murphy and his ex Melanie Brown have not been the best of friends and on top of that, Mr. Murphy has literally had zero involvement with their 3 year old daughter Angel Iris… until now.

NY Daily News is reporting that Eddie has actually attempted to get to know his youngest daughter for the first time in her 3 year existence. Apparently, Murphy hosted some big bash at his LA mansion recently and Mel and her husband Stephen Belafonte attended the event with she and Eddie’s little girl in tow:

“All of the children were there for the party, and it appeared that they’re one big happy, blended family,” the source added. “They’ve both said some really nasty things about each other to the press,” says our source. “So needless to say, some guests were shocked.”

“Eddie’s ex-wife Nicole helped them reconcile their issues, too,” the insider said of Murphy’s ex-wife, with whom he has six kids. “Angel is Eddie’s youngest child, and Nicole wanted her children to know her. That helped Eddie to come around and get past all the animosity he had toward Mel.”

We think that it’s nice to see that Eddie Murphy is finally stepping up and accepting the fact that little Angel is indeed his daughter. It’s never too late to start building a relationship with your child, even if you did act like a big ol’ busta in the past…
