Eddie Murphy is a proud dad of 10.

Yes, 10.

During an appearance on “The Ellen Show” promoting his new film, “Dolemite Is My Name,” the actor got very real about his big brood.

"Does it seem like a lot to you, or does that seem OK?" DeGeneres asked curiously.

"No, that seems OK," the 58-year-old actor responded.

She then pointed out the reaction of the crowd, which Murphy admitted he’s used to.

He went on to explain that he gets very different reactions from men and women when he mentions how many children he’s fathered.

“Men kind of look at me like, ‘He’s crazy. How much did that s— cost?'” he joked. “And women, it’s kind of like, something sexy about it I think. ‘Eddie Murphy must be doing this thing. Eddie Murphy be getting it in.'”

“I’m happy with it,” he said.

Back in 2016, the actor told People magazine that he got lucky with his kids.

"There really isn’t a bad one in the bunch, everyone turned out to be really good people."

Murphy’s extensive brood ranges from his eldest son, Eric, 30, to his youngest son, Max Charles, whom he welcomed with fiancee Paige Butcher last December.

The couple are also parents to a 3-year-old daughter, Izzy Oona.

Additionally, Murphy shares five children with ex-wife Nicole Mitchell Murphy and three kids from former relationships with Paulette McNeely, Tamara Hood and Spice Girls singer/ America’s Got Talent judge, Mel B (Scary Spice).

In July, Murphy also became a grandfather.
