Kevin Hart‘s ex wife Torrei Hart is an ambassador in blended familyhood. The actress and film producer told US Weekly recently that she is prepped and ready to embrace Kevin and his new wife Eniko’s baby as one of her own.
“I have baby fever, but I don’t want any more kids,” said Hart, who also is a screenwriter. “I wanna be able to love on this baby just like they’re loving on the baby. With coparenting, you have to get it right so it’s not a weird thing. I just want peace.”
She and Kevin divorced in 2011 after being married for 8 years and during that time, they welcomed two kids: now 12-year old daughter Heaven and 10-year old son Hendrix.
Kevin and Eniko are expecting a new baby boy, who they’ve decided to name Kenzo.
Torrei is among the many women in America, around the world, celebrity and not who are mature enough to make things work in a blended family! Cheers to her for taking the high road despite all the negativity that swrils around this famous family.
This weekend, comedian Kevin Hart came clean about having some indiscretions with a woman who is not his wife and recently tried to extort money from him in exchange for keeping a sexually-explicit video she took of him secret. He chose to fess up and apologize to current expectant wife Eniko Parrish and his children with ex wife Torrei Hartinstead in a video posted by TMZ.
Good for him for not succumbing to an illegal extortion attempt. While it is disappointing that he strayed at a critical time in his wife’s life carrying their first child together, hopefully, they can overcome this incident.
Hollywood has a little history of male celebrities stepping out on their spouses while pregnant. And female celebs too. For example, actress Claire Danes reportedly cheated with her Stage Beautyco-star Billy Crudup who left his then 7-months pregnant wife Mary Louise Parker for her before Danes and Crudup too eventually split up.
Some end up in brand new unions. In 2010, former NFL great and ex TODAY show Sports commentator Tiki Barber cheated on his pregnant wife Ginny Barber with 23-year old intern Traci Lynn Johnson while Ginny was pregnant with the couple’s twins. He is currently married to Johnson and the two of them have children.
Actress Shar Jackson was pregnant with her third child with longtime beau and backup dancer Kevin Federline, when he started an affair with Britney Spears.
Then there are the “duh” incidents common with athletes and rappers.
Lil Wayne had two women, singer Nivea and actress Lauren London pregnant at the same time. So obviously somebody was getting cheated on at some point.
A-Listers get burned too.
Actress Salma Hayek broke up with her French billionaire fiance François-Henri Pinault 11 months after the couple had their first child. There was speculation he may have started an affair while she was still pregnant.
Finally, BonesStar David Boreanaz cheated on his wife of eight years, Jaime Bergman, while she was pregnant, reportedly — and of all people with Rachel Uchitel, the same NYC events planner who boned a married Tiger Woods!
Keep your chin up, Eniko! From the looks of recent photos she has posted on Internet, she seemed to be having a pretty fun pregnancy up until now.
Kevin Hart, the comedic actor husband to one of our Bellyitch Bump Watch moms-to-be Enicko Parrish, has challenged his fellow celebs to donate $50,000 each to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
Many have accepted the challenge.
I was going to share all the celebrities, including some of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch babes who have pledged or donated to help the Houston Hurricane Harvey survivors.
The big name celebs donating include Houstonian Beyoncé, Hillary Scott, and more but The Washington Post’s “Reliable Source” blog did a pretty comprehensive round up so I don’t need to reinvent the wheel.
Comedian Kevin Hart told the co-hosts of ABC‘s Good Morning America that he made a deal with his wife Eniko Parrish to not help out with the baby until he turns 8-years old.
“I’m not doing nothing. That’s the one change that I’m doing. I’m not touching the diapers,” Hart said on the show “I’m not doing nothing. I’ve figured it out. When that baby turns 8, then I’ll do everything. I’m tapping in at 8 years old. Eight years old is when, ‘Tag, I’m it. You’re doing from 1 to 8, 8 to 16, I’ve got.’ That’s the deal that I made.”
He’s a jokester so we hope he’s just kidding. ha!
Hart and Parrish recently jetted off with two other couples including our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Eudoxie Mbouguiengue Agnan and her husband rapper, actor and TV host Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, actor Spank Horton and his Make up artist wife Jenece Horton to Mexico on a jet-setting getaway!
This week, a lot of the expecting celebs were showing off their progress to their fans and followers in social media.
Tennis Star Serena Williams asked for sleep advice earlier but has the answers along because she has been a spokesperson for Tempur-Pedic adjustable mattresses for a while now. (Instagram)
Terricka and Antonio Cromartie cannot are prepping for their next addition to their very large brood. (Instagram)
Meanwhile, Enicko Parrish and Kevin Hart were couple vacationing in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and dancing on the gram while batting down silly rumors that he stepped out on her while on travel. (Instgram)
Congrats to comedian -actor Kevin Hart and his wife,model Eniko Parrish, who are expecting their first child together, a boy.
The couple announced the news on their social media accounts.
“Celebrating Mother’s Day with my beautiful wife,” Hart wrote in the caption of a series of three Instagram photos on Sunday, one of which includes Parrish showing off her baby bump in a selfie. “We are laughing at the fact that this time next year we will be celebrating her 1st actual Mother’s Day.”
Well, technically many would consider a mom-to-be qualified and worthy to celebrate Mother’s Day to the baby in her womb.
In fact, plenty celebrate Expecting moms too on that day.
During a February 2, 2017 interview, Beyonce’s dad Matthew Knowles suggested that Queen Bey is expecting a baby boy and baby girl this year but in DJ Khaled‘s song “Shining” that she and husband Jay-Z guest performed on a week later, Jay seemed to suggest that he didn’t know what the sex of the babies are.
Let’s back up:
Knowles, who currently is an entertainment assistant professor at Texas Southern University, learned about the pregnancy the same time we all did because Bey didn’t tell him before announcing it to the world via her artsy pregnancy announcement.
But during a sit down chat with Insider, the ex –Destiny’s Child manager shared the circumstances under which he learned/
“I was shocked,” Knowles told the site. “Let me tell you what happened. I got a first text, and I was like, ‘Why is this person saying congratulations?’ Then I get a second text from one of my students at Texas Southern, and I was like, ‘What are you talking about?’ He was like, ‘Go to the web.’ I didn’t know myself.”
That might have been a good decision by because Matthew might have accidentally spilled the beans too soon.
During the Insider interview, the talent manager and university instructor went on to possibly reveal the sex of the babies.
“And Blue Ivy is going to have some brothers and sisters. She is already excited,” he said.
When the interviewer pressed for a confirmation that Bey was going to have a girl and boy, Knowles quickly flipped the script.
He said he was just talking in general.
Mmmm hmmmm! No wonder Yonce didn’t tell dear old dad the news in advance. He plum would have revealed it too soon but he wouldn’t have been the first. In 2011, Kelly Rowland also slipped up during an interview and let people know about Blue’s gender before Bey and Jay could.
Both Rowland, who is like a sister, and of course Matthew, who is a grandfather to Mrs. Sean “Jay-Z” Carter’s 5-year old daughter Blue Ivy and Solange Knowles‘ 12-year old son, Daniel, would be forgiven.
He may be right about guessing though.
A week later, the same day Beyonce performed on the Grammy Awards, DJ Khaled released a single from his upcoming album titled, “Shining” (that’s my jam) but any way, on the song, Jay-Z has a few bars which seem to indicate that he is clueless (or was clueless back when he penned the lyrics) as to the baby’s gender. On the song, he raps:
One ain’t enough, I need two
That night I mix the Ace with the D’us’
Hit a triple-double in the Garden
I done my left wrist like I’m Harden (swish)
Ran to the dealer, bought twin Mercedes’
The European trucks for the twin babies
Don’t let me have a son, I’m a fool (ooooh)
Send him to school in all my jewels
I want a boy and girl I fight for truth
Whatever God give me, I’m cool
LISTEN to the entire thing here:
We imagine what those twin European (his and hers) Mercedes would look like in the above collage, specifically, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz AMG GLS63. Below, check out actor-comedian Kevin Hart in front of his own Mercedes truck that he showed off his truck on social media recently. Something tells us these trucks will grow in popularity soon especially after the twin babies are born.
First time mom-to-be Tika Sumpter looked radiant in white while attending the Chicago premiere of her new Michelle & Barack Obama love story movie, Southside With You. The gorgeous and talented actress walked the red carpet and posed alongside her co-star Parker Sawyer who plays Barack and executive producer John Legend.
This movie could be the breakout role for the Gossip Girl alum who, up until now, has been known for supporting roles alongside Kevin Hart in the Ride Along movies or other small screen roles. She also stars on the OWN Network hit show The Haves and Have Nots.
The film is a fictional portrayal of the first date of the president and First Lady back in 1989 when President Obama was a Harvard Law Student and a community organizer and Michelle was an associate in a big Chicago law firm. And from watching the trailer, we must say that Sumpter got inflection down pack. It was part of her plan.
“I wanted to make sure you heard inflections of Michelle,” she told Nylon magazine in an August feature. “I studied every word, how she curved her tongue, how she kind of sings when she talks.” The result is a carefully drawn and recognizable portrait of Michelle Robinson, an ambitious and whip-smart lawyer who would go on to become one of the world’s most famous women, Nylon summarized.
It did well at the Sundance Film festival earlier this year. The film wasn’t sanctioned by the White House. The film’s screenwriter and producer Richard Tanne said the White House was “aware and slightly puzzled” by the existence of the film, but officials there did verify locations and the menu of their first date.
This is just but one of a plethora of untold stories of historic African American figures yet to hit the big or small screen. Sumpter also jumped in early as one of the producers .
“The great part about being a producer is you’re in the room when decisions are made,” she added, especially given that good roles are so hard to come by for black female actresses. “Usually, there aren’t any black people in the room…I’m in a place where I want to create because these characters aren’t being written for me.”
And she plans to do more.
“I have stories I want to tell,” she says. “My thing is making sure women know how dope they are, regardless of what the story is.”
She didn’t reveal who her boyfriend and father of her child is to the interviewer but did say he is also a lawyer who is mature, and representing the Obamas in her new film, Sumpter says they are “Relationship goals.” Sumpter also accidentally revealed she is having a baby girl on a radio show while promoting the film.
The New York Times did a write up recently too, revealing that, to prepare the actress worked with a vocal coach to master Mrs. Obama’s speech patterns, and watched videos to see how she walked and carried herself.
“Once we started rehearsing,” said Mr. Sawyers, “I was like, oh, that’s it! She nailed it.”
In one scene, Michelle talks about the racism she encountered at Princeton and Harvard — some subtle, some less so — and how, even at her current firm, she has to navigate between “Planet Black and Planet White.” Ms. Sumpter admitted that there were parallels in her own field. “You see the differences in the way certain movies are treated,” she said. “But once you come to terms with that, you have to go, O.K., I’m not going to allow that to hold me back. Which is what I love about Michelle. She never allowed the color of her skin and all the things she was up against to keep her from breaking through.”
A lot of that confidence came from Mrs. Obama’s family, just as it did for Ms. Sumpter, who is expecting her own daughter this fall. “Because of my mom, I never felt less than,” she said, looking back on her early days trying to make it in the business. “I never came into this world thinking, I’m a brown-skinned girl going to Hollywood. I was always like, I’m talented and I’m beautiful and I’m smart. Why wouldn’t you want me?”
The movie opens this Friday, August, 26 nationwide. Date night movie for sure!
