Heaven Leigh Hart was born on 22nd March 2005, in Santa Barbara, California, USA, and is the eldest daughter of multi-millionaire comedian Kevin Hart and his first wife Torrei Hart (nee Skipper). Although the famous funnyman is a father of four children by two women, Torrei is undeniably important to Kevin, and is the most famous of his offspring.
At 5ft 2in (158cm) and weighing approximately 106lbs (48kgs), Heaven bears an uncanny resemblance to her mother, and her recent entrance into adulthood was reported by various news sources such as Essence magazine. For her eighteenth birthday celebrations, Heaven got a matching tattoo with her mother – whom she shares an incredibly close relationship with – and went out to dinner with a group of friends.
“I could go on and on about how blessed I am to be your mother but what’s understood doesn’t have to be said. I love you, Happy birthday my beautiful angel,” a proud Torrei wrote on Instagram. Although Kevin was away in Australia on his latest comedy tour, he also made sure to take some time out of his day to celebrate his firstborn, saying: “So proud and so happy to see you grow into the amazing woman that you are!!! Love you my G”.
Over the years, Heaven has been spotted at many A-list events alongside her father and younger brother Hendrix, who was born on 8th November 2007. For example, in 2013 the famous tots went up on stage with their father at the 3rd annual Philly 4th of July Jam, one of the first times they were photographed at such a big get-together. In the same year, Kevin took his children and then-girlfriend Eniko Parrish to an NBA game, where they sat courtside alongside other famous faces.
Torrei clearly had no problem in allowing Eniko to spend time with her children, as in 2014 they attended the annual Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards and posed on the red carpet with Kevin and their future stepmother. As Torrei and Hendrix grew older, Kevin would take them to the MTV Movie Awards, the Rally HealthFest in L.A, and the premiere of his movie “The Secret Life of Pets 2”. This time, there was another special guest in attendance: their baby half-brother Kenzo, who was born on 21st November 2017.
Unlike other celebrity children who make more and more public appearances as they near adulthood, Heaven spent a few years out of the public eye until making her big comeback in 2022, when she attended her father’s HARTBEAT Brunch event in Beverly Hills. As far as we’re aware, the eldest Hart sibling has no public social media profiles, but thanks to Kevin, we know that she set off for college in August 2023.
“God knows I am beyond proud of you and that I love you with my all,” he wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of himself, Heaven, and his sons in Heaven’s college dorm room. In a 2022 interview with Ellen DeGeneres, the comedian confessed that Heaven wanted to attend college out of state, and perhaps go to New York City. As it happens, Kevin’s niece Sanny was the first person in the Hart family to attend college and graduate, and he’s hoping that Heaven will follow her cousin’s footsteps.
Regarding Heaven’s dating history, we have no idea if she’s seeing anyone right now as she has successfully kept the media out of her private life. Although it’s possible that Heaven is currently in a relationship, she’s believed to be focusing on her studies, and enjoying her freshman year of college.
Kevin Hart was born in Philadelphia on 6th July 1979, and has built an impressive career for himself, reaching mainstream recognition with one of his first comedy tours, “Laugh at My Pain”, which was one of the top-selling tours of 2013, bringing in over $15 million. Since then, Kevin has hosted award ceremonies, starred in Hollywood movies, and even co-created his own satire reality show.
In 2018, Kevin’s production company, HartBeat Productions, signed a lucrative deal with Nickelodeon to develop scripted, live-action content for the kids’ network. Despite being best-known for his comedy appearances, the actor has also had leading roles in drama movies, such “Fatherhood” and “The Upside”.
Kevin is also a big believer in having multiple streams of income, as in August 2022 he opened his first vegan restaurant, Hart House. Kevin has also done underwear commercials, released music, and is the owner of global media production company Laugh Out Loud.
Regarding Kevin and Torrei’s relationship, we know that they married in 2003 and welcomed Heaven and Hendrix within four years. The comedian requested joint custody of his children when the couple divorced citing irreconcilable differences in 2010, and although we don’t know what the state of Kevin and Torrei’s marriage was in the year prior to their divorce, it’s true that the funnyman began dating model Eniko Parrish in 2009.
Torrei was born on 28th February 1978 in North Philadelphia, but was raised in southern New Jersey. After meeting Kevin at community college and entering a relationship, the couple realized that they wanted to drop out, and relocated to Los Angeles to pursue their entertainment careers.
Now married, Kevin’s career took off while Torrei was a regular on the audition circuit; however, her dreams of becoming a famous actress and comedienne began taking second place, as she focused on being a homemaker. Even so, Torrei still appeared in “Parental Discretion”, had a role in “Soul Plane”, and did commercials for Toyota and Ebay.
When Kevin and Torrei divorced in 2010, the aspiring celebrity realized that she could now invest time and energy into her own career after years of playing second fiddle to her A-list husband. Two years later, she launched her YouTube comedy channel – PrettyFunnyFish – and a production team under the same name. Perhaps thanks to her industry connections, Torrei also joined forces with Russell Simmons to create the latter’s online company, All Def Digital.
The next few years were busier than ever for Torrei, as she co-wrote, executive produced, and starred in her own short film “Victim of Circumstance”, launched the non-profit initiative S.O.A.R, and created her own low-sugar and low-calorie cocktail mixer. Since then, Kevin’s ex-wife has tried her hand at just about everything, be it a beauty line, self-help books, or haircare products aimed at all ethnicities.
