You will find most of the things you want to know about the comedian here.
Kevin Hart’s Age and Early Life
Kevin Hart was born on 6th July 1979 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After graduating from high school, Hart attended Community College of Philadelphia. He graduated two years later and decided to turn his focus towards comedy. However, his start to a comedy career wasn’t successful. In Philadelphia, he began performing stand-up under the name Lil Kev, unfortunately, the crowd didn’t find him so funny, he was booed off the stage a number of times.
However, Hart didn’t give up, he moved to New England and began to participate in comedy competitions in various clubs in Massachusetts. During this period, he worked as a shoe salesman to support himself. Hart won most of these competitions, which paved the way for a higher level of success. He first gained prominence in 2000, when he was featured on TV series “Undeclared“, which ran for just one season.
Who Is Kevin Hart’s Wife?
Among the things that come with being a celebrity is having your private life out in the open and thus it is common for personal details of famous people like actors to be public knowledge. Though enjoying a flourishing entertainment career, Kevin Hart has had his fair share of relationship troubles. He has been married twice, first to his college sweetheart, Torrei Hart, and currently to Eniko Parrish.
Hart met his first wife in Philadelphia while studying at a local community college and thanks to their mutual love of comedy, they both decided to quit school and move to Hollywood to pursue their individual career in the entertainment industry. Subsequently, the lovebirds tied the knot in 2003 and their family began to grow with the arrival of their kids. As his family grew, Kevin, whose career was the first to get off the ground, also grew more popular, but at the detriment of his marriage.
Torrei also managed to get a few roles here and there but the career delay she experienced only worsened their relationship issues. Unable to keep their marriage working, Kevin Hart and Torrei filed for divorce in 2010, citing irreconcilable differences, and by November of the following year, their divorce was finalized. Although they had several physical altercations and misunderstandings during their marriage that probably led to their divorce, the pair have stayed friends.
Finding Love With Eniko Parrish
The comedic actor has obviously moved on since the breakdown of his first marriage. Confident and certain of what he wanted, he asked Eniko Parrish to marry him in 2014 at her 30th birthday party and she didn’t hesitate to say YES. In a bid to share her joy with her fans, Eniko took to her Instagram page to share a video of her engagement as seen below:
The overjoyed actor also shared a picture from the birthday/proposal party
Some Things You Should Know About Parrish
Considering the fact that she was not living her life in the media eye before she got involved with Kevin Hart, a lot of information about her is not known. However, we’ll let you in on the few things we were able to find out about her. Born on the 18th of August 1984, in Baltimore, Maryland, United States, the beautiful lady is of mixed Afro-Caribbean heritage.
Possessing a well-structured body and a height of 5 feet 6 inches, Eniko tried becoming a model. According to Nicki Swift, she moved from Baltimore to Los Angeles with the dream of making it big in the modelling industry. In 2013, Parrish appeared on the BET television series titled ‘Rip the Runway‘ but was not successful and has also not been able to land any professional modelling jobs subsequently.
Among the things she loves are travelling and music such as hip-hop, dancehall, and R&B. Eniko loves to live a healthy life and as such, is into fitness just like her husband, Kevin.
Being Mrs. Hart
Almost two years after they got engaged, Parrish had every girl’s dream wedding with Hart in an event that took place in Santa Barbara, Califonia in 2016. Meanwhile, there was no record of when Kevin and Parrish officially got together but fans got to know that it was around 2009 when Parrish caused a stir on social media with a post she made on Instagram in August 2017, saying that she and the comedian had been a pair for the past 8 years.
Fans were swift to point out the problem, which was the fact that Kevin and Torreri Hart’s divorce happened six years ago at that time. Responding to one of the people who pointed out the inconsistency in a comment she deleted soon enough, Parrish said that the couple’s union was broken way before she came into the picture, adding that they were already separated, living in different homes and that she was never a secret. This was somewhat of a confirmation of the cheating rumours that made the rounds as the cause of Hart’s broken marriage with his first wife.
In another comment, which was also eventually deleted, Parrish accused Torrei of spreading the cheating rumours because she wanted to appear as the victim and not take responsibility for her wrong-doing. She went on to allege that Torrei singled her out simply because the relationship between her (Parrish) and Hart “stuck”, even when she was fully aware that he was involved with other women. According to Eniko Hart, “I never wrecked any home”.
It was at this point that Torrei responded as she was of the opinion that Parrish was the homewrecker who ruined her beautiful marriage with Kevin. This prompted a back and forth between the two women, which later ended with Torreri advising Parrish to “either respond truthfully or don’t respond at all” when replying to fans on social media.
Even though Kevin and Parrish seem to be going stronger and stronger, they have had to deal with some challenges which would have probably been the end of some other marriages. Many thought their marriage would have gone a different direction when a video and some accusations surfaced online showing that Kevin had stepped out on her despite denying that he has ever done so.
The cheating incident happened when Kevin Hart slept with a model named Montia Sabbag while he was in Las Vegas. According to a report by Daily Mail, the model claimed that Hart the whole situation was engineered by the comedian, and consequently, she sued him, asking for 60 million dollars. Luckily for Hart, a judge in California said the lawsuit failed to go through the right channels and as a result, it didn’t make any headway.
Speaking of how she got to know about the cheating incident, Eniko Parrish recently explained in Kevin Hart: Don’t F**k This Up that she received an Instagram DM from an unknown person who wanted to let her know that her husband had been with another woman. Eniko said that the unidentified person sent her an edited video of Kevin and another woman and at that time, she was about seven to eight months pregnant with their first child. When she got the message, she said, “I was having breakfast, I opened my phone and immediately I just lost it.”
No one was too sure of what led to the whole drama but the stand-up comic was quick to tackle the matter head-on. He immediately took responsibility for what happened and apologized for his mistakes.
Well, with hopes that Parrish would forgive him, he promised that it was not going to be something that would continue over time. Surprisingly, Parrish never commented on the issue or reacted in a pissed-manner rather, she chose to forgive her husband and remain supportive of him and committed to their family.
Kevin Hart Is A Father of 3 Kids
Kevin Hart is the father of three children. His first marriage produced a daughter named Heaven Leigh, who was born on the 22 of March 2005, and a son named Hendrix, born in 2007.

In May 2020, Torrei Hart celebrated her son, Hendrix Hart, following his graduation from sixth grade. Showering him with kind words, the businesswoman described Hendrix as a young man who possesses a lot of good qualities and also fears God.
Heaven on her own part has become so much of a sensation on TikTok that some people have come to believe that she will end up in the entertainment industry just like her parents. Celebrating the beautiful young woman on her 15th birthday, Eniko wrote, “as much as I clown you about your goofy TikToks, you’re the real MVP.”
Hart has also fathered a third child from his second marriage to Eniko Parrish. The couple announced that they were expecting their first child together on Mother’s Day of 2017 (May 14th). Speaking in a joint statement to PEOPLE, the duo said, “We are overjoyed about our new addition to our family”. The following month, Hart was a guest on Good Morning America, and on the show, he spoke about being a father again, jokingly saying that he was absolutely not ready.
According to him, he held off having another child for a long time, and each time his wife talked about having babies, he showed up with a dog. Eventually, Eniko was like, “No. I want to have a kid”. I was like, “But I got two kids. We’re married. My kids are your kids.” Eniko argued that they were grown and that she wanted ‘new ones’. At the end of the day, Hart gave in.
Months after the interview, Hart and his wife welcomed a baby boy- Kenzo Kash- precisely on November 21, 2017. Sharing the news on Twitter, the comedian wrote:
