Kevin Hart is a man who is clearly in love. After ending his marriage with ex-wife, Torrei Hart, the father of two (he and Torrei share a daughter and son) has moved on romantically with Eniko Parish. For the last few years, their relationship has continued to blossom. In an interview with Necole Bitchie, the About Last Night actor explains why he considers Eniko the perfect woman for him in love and marriage. He explains:

I found somebody who put a smile on my face. I found somebody who genuinely made me happy. Which people don’t realize is not an easy task. You know, the word ‘happy’ is a strong word. I’m not talking about facilitating happiness, I’m talking about genuinely making me happy. And she does that. Eniko is a strong woman in my life. Not [just] in the way she embraces me but from the way that- in the beginning of our relationship, for years I kept my kids away from what we were doing until I felt [they] were ready and when I finally did [put her around my kids] she embraced that as well. And the way that she stepped up to the plate and just accepted me for who I am, accepted me as a man coming in with kids and not even blinking an eye. I think she’s shown that she’s a woman who has my back. And that’s what you want when you’re in the position that I’m in and you’re in the entertainment business. Everybody’s going to question everything you do. Everybody’s going to question everything you say, but you have to come to a strong decision of what’s right and what’s wrong. And right now, the one thing I can say is right is having that woman in my life.


He adds:

At the end of the day, you gotta realize that sometimes people just aren’t meant to be together and you find that out differently. But you know, I think the good thing about me and my ex-wife [Torrei] is- I love the fact that [she] is the mother of my kids. I wouldn’t ask for a better person to do it. She gave me two amazing kids and because of that, that’s [her] invaluable purpose to our relationship and in our life.

It’s evident that while Kevin and Torrei have parted ways, they remain responsible in the co-parenting arena:

So from this day on, we’re in each others’ lives. We’re friends. We’re [amicable]. It’s not a thing where we don’t get along or we’re fighting all the time. We’re good.

    It doesn’t hurt that she is beautiful, with no obligations and strings… and he was ALREADY succesful when they met. Wish them well, but don’t discount all the ground work the ex put in, and now somebody ELSE is reaping what she “sowed”. I think that is the hardest part to swallow. But you have to in order to move on healthy and receptive to what is ultimately meant for you.

      I am a little confused with the statement about “ground work”. Everyone is responsible for themselves. Who he has become as a person has nothing to do with anyone else. A person only changes if they feel they have something they need to change. His attitude toward his new girl has nothing to do with any “ground work.”

        I agree with you applaud the ex for her contribution to get him all way to the top.

    Actually, when you are married, you are responsible for EACH OTHER, that maybe the reason why a lot of people don’t really get the concept of marriage and fail. Ground work, means just that…. The foundation of who Kevin Hart is today, was built with the “team work” of him AND his ex. To discredit that is to discredit himself. BEFORE he reached the height he is at now, there was the “climb” and his ex played a major part in it, the good, the grind, the bad, the grime. That “ground work” also does play a part in his attitude towards his new girl, cause his past EXperience, shapes who he is today, and lessons learned etc… however, my point was that it is easier to appreciate and be appreciated when you are in the position in life that he is in now, but how “supportive” would the new one have been during the “climb”. Again, wishing them well, but I also recognize and give a nod to the ex who “supported” him WITHOUT all the luxuries. That is all!

      Amen, honey.

    • Alaya_MingLee

      That is a GREAT point! Very well said. Love it!

  • Kells

    Well, well said I agree 100 %. In case you didn’t know that is what “ground work” is.

    • P.S. Not that ya’ll asked, but I had an entire conversation this a.m. about this comment thread, along with the point of ‘ground work’. Thanks for giving me a potential interview question :)
