Steve Harvey is still soaking up some time with his family after the holidays, and over the weekend he took a few moments to teach one of his grandsons how to ride his scooter.
Harvey’s daughter, Brandi, shared some footage on her Instagram Story Saturday which saw the famous comedian grandpa guiding his grandson with his apparent new toy. BJ, whose full name is Benjamin Troy Raymond II, is the son of Brandi’s twin sister Karli Harvey and her husband Benjamin Raymond.
The post was reshared by Harvey’s morning radio show on the official Instagram account Sunday.
“Aww 😍 Grandpa Steve teaches little BJ how to ride a scooter 🛴 Grandfathers love your grandsons ❤️ 📹: @iambrandiharvey,” “The Steve Harvey Morning Show” adoringly captioned the footage on Jan. 6.
Two clips Brandi captured show Steve guiding 2-year-old BJ on his blue scooter.
“You gotta push. Put this foot down, put this foot on the ground … Push, push. That’s how you do it. Push, there you go!” the host of “Steve” tells the toddler.
Several fans couldn’t help but gush over the grandpa-grandson bonding moment.
“Awww how sweet…❤️❤️❤️”
“Mr. Harvey I’m so happy to see spending time with your grand babies and just being home with your family! That’s the most important job of all!”
“He was a quick learner 👍🏾good job grandpa on your patience.”
Harvey himself previously shared another moment with young BJ. In October, the comic uploaded a video of his grandkid parading around the kitchen in his grandpa’s shoes.
“Hanging out with my grandson BJ. He won’t walk on the rug, not enough noise,😂” Harvey captioned the clip.
But while the comedian enjoys sharing such moments of his kids’ families, the star also isn’t always the biggest fan of being a grandfather.
“My grandkids, they test me all the time,” he admitted on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in December. “I’m not as happy as most grandparents are. I don’t really get it. … My wife is really into this grandparent thing, so she lets them stay over at the house, and I told her, ‘That’s not how this is supposed to work.’ They supposed to come over and then go home.”
Before then, Steve explained on his talk show that he had been looking forward to having the house to himself and wife Marjorie Harvey, but his kids have continued to bring their five grandkids to the house.
“I wanna be an empty-nester. Now they come back to the house and they got some more people with ’em,” he said. “They always bring ’em over and drop ’em off. And I’m going, ‘Now, I been talking to my girl all day long. All we been talking about was what was gon’ happen tonight. Then, I get to the house and here they is!’”
