Hollywood, CA, United States (4E) – Comedy star Kevin Hart, 35, is now engaged to his longtime girlfriend, model/actress Eniko Parrish.
The comedian shared the happy news via Instagram on Aug. 18, posting a photo of Parrish showing off her massive engagement ring. Hart captioned the photo: “She said YEEEEESSSSS…… #Happy #MyRib #iF**kingLoveHer.”
The couple has been denying pregnancy rumors, with Parrish tweeting last Aug. 14 that they aren’t planning on having kids right now…but they will, eventually. She wrote on Twitter: “LOL! Working on it does NOT mean right now. ‘Working on it’ means when the timing is right.. We will begin to plan!”
Four days later, Kevin Hart popped the question to her—on her 30th birthday.
“The Five-Year Engagement” star and fiancée Parrish began dating five years ago. Hart was formerly married to “Atlanta Exes” star Torrei Hart, with the couple divorcing in 2011 due to irreconcilable differences.
Torrei told “Entertainment Tonight” that Parrish was the reason why her relationship with Kevin ended. Three months ago, Kevin defended Parrish on Twitter. “My woman has nothing to do with my past marriage problems in any way shape or form,” he wrote. “It’s almost 7yrs total of me not being with my Ex … I guess giving a woman over 20k a month and still being there for her and being a incredible father isn’t enough!”
Footage of Hart’s surprise proposal to Parrish is posted on Instagram. As he pulled out the ring box, the comedian confessed to Parrish: “On this perfect day, I chose to make the most perfect decision.”
Congratulations to the couple!
