Bria Murphy looked incredible in a white off-the-shoulder gown after tying the knot with her actor love Michael Xavier, Welcome to the Murphy family!
Bria Murphy, the actor Eddie Murphy’s eldest child with ex-wife Nicole, wed actor Michael Xavier on Saturday in Beverly Hills, according to information only available to PEOPLE.
Prior before 250 close friends and family members, the happy couple got married in an intimate afternoon ceremony. Bria, a 32-year-old artist and actress, and Xavier, 36, were joined in marriage by her mother Nicole, and her father, who walked Bria down the aisle.
The bride’s gown was designed by Netta BenShabu, and Dion Lattimore styled the groom’s tuxedo from Knot Standard.
Throughout the ceremony, which featured romantic decors like white flowers and candlelight chandeliers, photos show the bride grinning.
Bria is sitting on her husband Xavier’s knee in one picture, while the newlyweds are seen posing with the bride’s parents in another.
The bride is Eddie Murphy’s eldest child, who made an appearance with her mother in 2014 on the reality series Hollywood Exes.
Bria shared engagement photos on Instagram in December, writing in the caption, “My heart, my best friend, my forever. I love you, always.” In another upload, she wrote, “I can’t wait to marry you.”
At the same time, Xavier wrote on his own page, “Forever my love.”
Eddie, 61, is the father of 10 kids: Bria, Christian, 31, Miles, 29, Shayne, 27, Zola, 22, Bella, 20, Angel Iris, 15, Izzy Oona, 6, and 3-year-old Max Charles. Eric, who turns 33 on Sunday, is also the father of 10.
At Bria’s Los Angeles art exhibition in 2020, Eddie referred to her as a “good kid.”
“I’m glad that people get to see how talented she is,” Eddie told reporters. “We’ve known for years how talented she is. It’s exciting to see her stuff up on the walls… I’m having all of those proud parent feelings.”
He added, “I really got lucky with my kids. There really isn’t a bad one in the bunch, everyone turned out to be really good people.”
In the meantime, the son of Coming 2 America star Martin Lawrence, Eric, is dating Jasmin Lawrence, daughter of another actor Martin Lawrence.
Martin, 57, joked on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last month that if the two ever get married, he’s willing to break with tradition and have the groom’s father take care of the bill for the wedding: “I’m gonna try to get Eddie to pay for it.”
