Kevin Hart says his relationship with his older daughter, Heaven, is doing just fine following a revealing discussion about his 2017 cheating scandal.
During a June recording of “Red Table Talk” with friend Will Smith, Hart opened up about his teenage daughter checking him after he’d been caught cheating on his wife, Eniko. In the weeks following the episode’s premiere, Hart says his daughter was pleased to see how much he’d grown as a man.
“She was happy that I made the adjustments that she asked, and just to see that I listened,“ said Hart during the “Red Table Talk” interview that received coverage from “Access.” “As a dad that’s the best thing you can do and ask for,” he continued. During the no holds barred sit-down Hart revealed that seeing how much he disappointed Heaven rocked him to his core.
“When your child shows disappointment, shows emotion, shows ‘I don’t understand why,’ and you have to have those conversations…head drops for the first time,” explained the “Fatherhood” star. The honest conversations he and Heaven had helped the father of four realize how much his decisions and public interest impacted his household.
“Now you’ve realized there’s a different emotional cord that could be pulled on you that nobody else has the privilege of ever touching,” he continued. “My daughter touched on that.” At the time of the scandal, Eniko was pregnant with the couple’s first child, son Kenzo. Last year, the couple welcomed their second child, daughter Kaori Mai. Hart shares daughter Heaven and son Hendrix with ex-wife Torrie Hart.
Proving just how strong their father-daughter bond is, the 16-year-old currently works as an intern at her father’s production company, Hartbeat Productions. The duo is even embarking on driving lessons, of course with Hart serving as the instructor.
