Eddie Murphy’s son Eric Is dating Martin Lawrence’s daughter Jasmin

Cute couple alert! It looks like comedy royalty’s offspring are coupling up. Martin Lawrence’s daughter Jasmin, 25, and Eddie Murphy’s oldest son Eric, 32, are dating. Jasmin confirmed the relationship in an Instagram post in which she wished Eric a happy birthday over the weekend. Eric had already posted a sweet Instagram to Jasmine a couple weeks before, but no one took notice. What makes this coupling sweet is that Jasmin and Eric’s fathers, Martin and Eddie, worked together in two movies in the nineties. I wonder if Eddie and Martin saw a future in which there was a possibility that their houses would be joined to create a dynasty? Below are a few more details from People:

On Saturday, Jasmin Lawrence — Martin’s oldest child — wished Eddie’s firstborn son Eric Murphy a happy birthday on Instagram, revealing that they’re dating in the caption of her post.

“Happy birthday, my love! I’m so incredibly blessed to know you, to love you, and to have you by my side,” Jasmin, 25, wrote alongside two loving photographs of the pair. “Cheers to many more blessings, laughs, and beautiful memories! I love you so much!! 🖤✨.”

Last month, Eric, 32, posted a photo with his girlfriend on his respective Instagram account, captioning the post, “Head over heels in LOVE with YOU,” adding the hashtags, “#myotherhalf,” “#equallyyoked,” and “#iloveyou.”

This was so not on my radar or on my 2021 bingo card. I never thought about the fact that Eddie and Martin had grown ass kids. Nor the fact that those kids could grow up and fall in love with each other. I now have heart eyes over this. I am sure Eddie and Martin are having a field day over this situation and hope they are both supportive of their kids’ romance.

I would like to know, because I’m nosey, how Jasmin and Eric met? Did they grow up together? Did Eddie and Martin have play dates with their kids when they were little? Or did Jasmin and Eric just find themselves in the same social circles? It is not farfetched since Black Hollywood is such a small microcosm. Jasmin and Eric are a very sweet and cute couple and I love their Instagram posts to each other. They sound like love sick puppies that enjoy each other’s company. Honestly, what more could you ask for in a romantic relationship in your twenties and thirties? Wouldn’t it be dope to get a Murphy-Lawrence mashup in the future? I wish Jasmin and Eric the best.

    They are TOO CUTE! I just like this this news, good for them

  2. Joanna says:

    They look so cute together!

  3. Alexandria says:

    Celebrity kids are really front and centre nowadays, even in some parts of Asia like China, HK, Malaysia. So I wouldn’t be surprised there will be more of such ‘dynasties’ and of course celebs’ children influencers 😂 they look really cute

  4. Hell Nah! says:

    Could they be any more adorable?!!? I think not.

    I am loving the look of LOVE between them – so heartwarming.

  5. Agreatreckoning says:

    They look genuinely in love with each other and really cute together.

  6. manda says:

    Yes, they are super cute, and yes, I wonder if they knew each other as kids. Sometimes you see things about the lives of celebs and it makes it seem like they live in their own small world (like, they talk about running into each other at stores or on vacation and I literally never bump into people I know on vacation, you know?), so I would think so, but maybe not

  7. Tyle says:

    They are adorable!

    Between this and the safe return home of Aly Raisman’s dog it’s a happy day for gossip.

    Please Please invite me to that Thanksgiving dinner. Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence sitting in a room just improvising? And if any of their kids inherited their funny bones? I would be rolling on the floor laughing all night.

  9. Seraphina says:

    I will repeat what many have posted – they are so cute together and they look so happy in their picture. This put a smile on my face today.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      It does me as well!! And I would love to know the story behind these two love birds!! Oh, to be young and in love again, they certainly solidify that sentiment❤️❤️

      I think I remember them stating in a interview, that they have remained close over the years. Though I could be very mistaken.

  10. Princess Peach says:


    Also she is very beautiful and yet…also looks like Martin Lawrence. Very random.

    • Oya says:

      I was thinking the same damn thing LOL – she literally stole Martin’s face.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        She did!! She is absolutely adorable!! They make a beautiful couple and you can see the love between them too!!! Though, Eric doesn’t look very much like his father, to me.

        I would live to be a fly on the wall during a family get together though!!

    • lucy2 says:

      I’ve never thought of Martin as an attractive guy, but she does look like him and is so pretty!

      She and Eric are a very cute couple, and I wish them a long and happy relationship.

    • sally says:

      Right? I came down here to say that, she looks very very cute, yet exactly the same as her dad. Somehow his facial features look so much better when they’re a woman’s xD

  11. Onemoretime says:

    Too cute, Eric is the perfect blend of Eddie & Nicole.
    I wonder if they have any comedic skills like their fathers?

    • Jojo says:

      Nicole is not Eric’s mother.
      Eddie has four daughters and one son,Miles, with Nicole.Eric’s mother is Paulette McNeeley.He also has an adult son with Tamara Hood,that son’s name is Christian.He has a daughter with Mel B.And two young kids,Izzy and Max with his current partner,Paige.10 kids with 5 women

  12. Zut Alors says:

    Awwww…..very cute and adorable couple.

  13. KNy says:

    Why do I immediately want to see a movie about this? Eddie and Martin can play competing dads who make constant jokes to see who’s funnier. They are such an adorable couple! (Eric and Jasmin, I mean.)

  14. J ferber says:

    Super cute.

  15. Margo says:

    Beautiful couple. Will be akin to having a Royal Wedding if these two tie the knot! 🙂

  16. olliesmom says:

    Cute couple. Are they funny/in comedy like their dads? Maybe comedy skips a generation and their kids will be funny like their grandpas.

  17. incognito08 says:

    Martin Lawrence’s daughter has beauty and brains. A few years ago, she graduated with honors from Duke University too.

    Hope this works out, they are a good looking couple
