The boy's middle name is a tribute to Murphy's older brother and fellow comedian Charlie Murphy, who died of leukemia last year.
It's the 10th child for the 57-year-old Eddie Murphy, the second child for the 39-year-old Butcher. The couple has a 2-year-old daughter, Izzy.
The "Nutty Professor" and "Beverly Hills Cop" actor has been dating the Australian model and actress since 2012, and they recently became engaged.
