Eddie Murphy’s daughter Bria Murphy Makes a Cameo in ‘Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F.’

Published

on

Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F

Eddie Murphy’s daughter Bria Murphy has made a memorable cameo in the latest installment of the Beverly Hills Cop franchise, ‘Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F.’ Bria, who is the oldest daughter of the iconic comedian and actor, plays a police officer who arrests her father’s character, Axel Foley, in the film.

‘Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F’ marks the return of Murphy as the wisecracking Detroit detective Axel Foley, 30 years after the release of Beverly Hills Cop III. The film, directed by Mark Molloy, sees Foley back in Beverly Hills to help his estranged daughter, played by Taylour Paige, who is in trouble with some dangerous individuals.

Bria’s appearance in the film is a family affair, as her husband, Michael Xavier, also stars in the movie as a police officer.

Eddie Murphy said his daughter’s role in the film was a surreal experience. In an interview, he shared that the scene where his son-in-law tases him in the neck was particularly memorable, especially since it happened shortly after his daughter’s wedding.

The movie, released on Netflix on July 3, 2024, has received mixed reviews. However, Eddie Murphy’s performance and his daughter’s cameo have been highlighted as some of the film’s most enjoyable moments.

Published

on

On July 3, 2024, Halle Bailey and her boyfriend DDG delighted fans by sharing the first photos of their son, Halo. The couple, who welcomed their baby boy in December 2023, had kept him out of the public eye until now.

In the series of photos posted on Instagram, the family of three can be seen enjoying a trip to Italy. The first image shows Halle and DDG smiling as they hold Halo up in the air. The second photo captures a close-up of Halo, revealing his adorable face for the first time. The third picture features the couple walking hand-in-hand with their son, who is dressed in a white onesie and sneakers.

“Halo’s first time in Italy,” Halle captioned the post, which quickly garnered thousands of likes and comments from fans expressing their excitement and admiration.

DDG also shared the photos on his Instagram account, asking fans to weigh in on who Halo looks like more – him or Halle. “Who Halo look like more?,” he captioned the post, which sparked a lively debate among followers.

The couple’s decision to keep Halo’s face hidden until now was likely an attempt to protect their son’s privacy and shield him from the public eye.

Halle and DDG have been dating since 2022.
