Comedian Kevin Hart is engaged to his longtime girlfriend Eniko Parrish.
The Ride Along star popped the question at Parrish's 30th birthday celebration on Sunday (17Aug14), and in a video posted on Instagram.com by a friend, the comedian calls his decision "perfect" during a speech dedicated to his wife-to-be. He says, "On this perfect day, I choose to make the most perfect decision", before getting down on one knee to present Parrish with a diamond ring.
Hart, 35, took to Twitter.com on Monday (18Aug14) to confirm the exciting news, posting a photo of his fiancee showing off her bauble while she hugs him from behind. He added the caption, "She said YEEEEESSSSS..."
This will be Hart's second marriage - he was previously married to comedienne Torrei Hart for seven years until their split in 2010. They have joint custody of their two children, daughter Heaven and son Hendrix. Torrei, who stars on U.S. reality TV series Atlanta Exes, previously claimed the funnyman's affair with Parrish ultimately led to the demise of their marriage, but Kevin fired back and insisted his girlfriend had "nothing to do with my past marriage problems in any way shape or form."
Comedian Kevin Hart has taken aim at his ex-wife, Torrei, after she confessed his infidelity led to their divorce in a recent TV interview. The Ride Along star ended his seven-year marriage in 2011 and now his ex is ready to reveal all about the funnyman's private life in a new U.S. reality TV series, titled Atlanta Exes.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, which aired on Tuesday (20May14), Torrei claimed the funnyman's affair with his current girlfriend, Eniko Parrish, ultimately led to the demise of their relationship, blaming the other woman for breaking up their family.
She said, "I never lashed out. I never tried to punch her in the face, even though I've had moments where - trust and believe - I wanted to K.O. (knockout) her a**."
Torrei, who is the mother of Hart's two children, added, "It does hurt that my kids have to be around a woman who broke up a marriage. I was with Kevin when he was selling sneakers for five dollars an hour... I was his muse. I was there from the beginning."
But on Wednesday (21May14), the comedian took to Twitter.com to fire back at his ex-wife, insisting Parrish had nothing to do with the break up of his marriage.
He wrote, "Fame is a unbelievable drug people... My Ex wife is the mother of my 2 beautiful kids & is well taken care of, I go above & beyond what the court ordered me 2 do. Because she is the mother of my kids I would never slander her name or anybody that she's dealing with.
"I've actually embraced the man that she is dealing with with nothing but positivity. That man is going to be around my kids and for that reason alone I want to have a positive relationship with him. 4 her 2 continue 2 talk about my Woman is honestly sad.
"I've been separated & divorced for a long time now people. I've moved on with my life... My woman has nothing to do with my past marriage problems in any way shape or form."
He added, "It's almost 7yrs (seven years) total of me not being with my Ex. I guess giving a woman over 20k ($20,000) a month and still being there for her and being a incredible father isn't enough!"
