Blair Underwood Announces He’s Engaged To His Friend Of 41 Years!

It looks like Blair Underwood has found love yet again!

The Emmy Award winner recently announced that he is engaged to his friend of 41 years, Josie Hart.

On Tuesday (Nov. 22), Blair Underwood, 58, took to Instagram to share the news with his followers. Underwood captioned an Instagram photo of himself posing with Hart on the 50th International Emmy Awards red carpet. In a heartfelt message to his new fiance, he wrote:

“My personal highlight was walking the red carpet with my new fiancée Josie Hart. The most amazing, brilliant, beautiful, hilarious, thought provoking & insightful person I know who continuously lives life out-loud.”

While it’s unclear how long the pair have been dating and when they became engaged, one thing is for certain, Blair Underwood is in love and excited for the future.

He continued,

“The future is crazy-bright Girl! None of us ever know where God will guide our paths. She’s had my back since before I even became an actor. When a 41 year friendship slaps you in the back of the head & blossoms into romance, you stand up, pay attention & step forward in gratitude. Gently forward. It begins!”


As previously reported, the seasoned actor split from his ex-wife Desiree DaCosta after 27 years of marriage in 2021. In May of that year, the former couple released a joint statement announcing their separation and expressing what a beautiful journey it’s been for the both of them.
