They’re stronger than ever! It looks like Kevin Hart‘s efforts to save his marriage after his scandal — where the comedian admitted to cheating on his pregnant wife with another woman and was now being extorted — are actually working. Kevin and his wife, Eniko Parrish, celebrated the upcoming arrival of their first child — a baby boy — and they revealed their son’s name during their baby shower over the weekend.
The Hart family celebrated with an adorable jungle-themed baby shower and they announced their baby name with a custom Instagram feature with a border that read, “Oh, Boy! Baby Kenzo.” Eniko shared a handful of snaps on her Instagram story from the day — including a shot of her looking gorgeous in a long, flowing animal print dress with the caption, “Kenzo’s mama.”

It’s a happy moment for the family, especially after all of the drama surrounding Kevin’s scandal. He shocked fans when he uploaded a video of himself to Instagram where he publicly apologized to his wife for his “bad error in judgement,” and sources exclusively revealed to Life & Style that he was willing to try anything to avoid a split.
“Neither wants a divorce, but Eniko’s not going to let Kevin make a fool of her,” an insider told Life & Style. “He’s got a lot to lose, so he’s going to do whatever it takes to save his marriage.” He’s even offered to tear up the prenup they signed before their 2016 wedding to show how serious he is about their relationship. “He has projects lined up for the next two years. But he said he’ll come home every five days if he’s out of LA, and wants to rent a house on location so Eniko and the baby can be with him at all times,” a different source shares.
As for the woman he allegedly cheated with, an actress and singer named Tia, she claims they got “intimate” but denies being the person trying to extort $15 million from Kevin. Her aunt and godmother, Michelle Calnan, told Life & Style that Tia told her, “The first time they met, he [said], ‘I want you to be my girlfriend.’ [The next night], he offered to put her up in her own apartment.”
But a source close to Kevin denies he offered to make her his girlfriend or get an apartment for her. Despite the actor’s attempts, an eyewitness reveals that Kevin and Eniko were anything but chummy during a recent lunch date in LA. “He was on his phone the entire time and she was just eating,” the eyewitness shared. “They weren’t affectionate at all. I never saw them even touch.”
