Kevin Hart has a great relationship with his kids, thanks to his dad. The star recently told Howard Stern that the absence of his father during childhood has made him that much more determined to be an active parent.
“How do you deal with pain,” Kevin asked. “You can find a positive in every negative. If my dad had been around, and didn’t do drugs, I may be handling my success differently. I may be on drugs.”
He went on to explain, “I’m a happy guy. I’m such a great father, because I don’t want to make the mistakes that my dad made.”
In being such an incredible father, Kevin is planning to have his son, Hendrix, as his best man when he and girlfriend Eniko Parrish wed in coming months. “My son is my best friend,” Kevin said. “My son will definitely be my best man.”
The guest list at Kevin and Eniko’s wedding is bound to be star-studded. The actor knows big names in Hollywood such as Justin Bieber and Ice Cube, and has guaranteed loads of fun at the ceremony. “I cant disclose all that information,” Hart told Stern in reference to the guest list. “I got a lot nice friends, [so it is] very top secret, very private. It’s going to be a good time.”
Kevin has two kids, Heaven and Hendrix, with ex-wife Torrei Hart. Watch a snippet of the star’s interview with Howard Stern below!
