However, it wasn’t her profession that made media spin around her. It was her relationship with Eddie Murphy, the king of comedy. Meanwhile, she lives a private life to avoid intrusion and media is trying hard to break the mystery behind her. Here’s what we have dig out about Murphy’s Fiancée and soon to be his wife.
Early Background and Education
Paige Butcher born originally as Jacinto Paige Butcher was born on October 6, 1979. She was born in Perth, Western Australia to folks Robert Butcher and a mother whose identity isn’t known. Her father Robert was an Australian model whereas her mother was popular as a style designer. Ms. Butcher has a sister who has been successful in hiding her identity from the media world.
While growing up, Paige has lived a luxurious life along with her sister all because of her parent’s successful occupation. As a child, parents are the ones whom they would like to follow and regard them as their motivation guru. Following this, Butcher from a young age desired to walk in her parents’ shoes. She first wished to be a model and then ultimately have a career as an actress. As for education, she attended Santa Clause Maria Catholic College. After graduation, Paige went on to pursue a career as an actress and model. She gave audition for different acting roles, booking various photo-shoots and started modeling for different ventures.
Professional Life Breakthrough
The Australian born Paige was blessed with good looks from birth and she belonged to a family that was into the fashion industry. Therefore, she didn’t have to go through the real struggle to commence her career as a model. She was already familiar with the modeling world, thanks to her parents, from an early age. This has helped her a lot to build up her career. At the age of 14, she won the Cover Girl Cosmetics Supermodel Search. This secured her an IMG modeling contract and her journey took her to New York. She was so passionate about her work that she only visited her family once a year. Besides modeling, she also worked in charity works while she was residing in New York. In an interview with The West Australian, Butcher’s father Robert told:
“She’s done a lot of work in New York with disabled children, taking aged people shopping, working in pet refuges and helping build houses for the need.”
Soon after she entered the modeling world, her talent and beauty garnered wide attention. This recognition led her to bag a role in the movie “Something’s Gotta Give’. Though she had a small role in the movie, sharing the screen with great actors like Jack Nicholson, Keanu Reeves, and Diane Keaton was a huge accomplishment for her. Butcher continued modeling for many big brands. One of her notable modeling campaigns was appearing in a swimsuit video for the magazine Maxim named ‘Real Swimsuit DVD Vol.2’ in 2005. Being featured in such a renowned magazine lifted her modeling career. The following year, she landed a role in the comedy movie ‘Big Momma’s House 2.’ However, she couldn’t get any other acting projects afterward. So, she fully focused her attention to modeling where she was witnessing success.
While her personal achievements are noteworthy, she became famous after she started dating legendary comedian Eddie Murphy.

As Paige’s relationship with the comedian went public, she deleted all her media accounts in a bid to maintain privacy. She revealed:
“I’m in a relationship with a celebrity, so I felt like there’s already enough of me out there. I felt like I was giving out too much information. I was giving people too much access. I like to keep as much as private as possible now.”
