Steve Harvey's First Two Wives Are the Mothers of His 4 Kids - Meet Mary Lee Harvey and Marcia Harvey

TV favorite, Steve Harvey, has four grown-up kids all from his earlier marriages to his exes, Mary Lee Harvey and Marcia Harvey.

Steve Harvey is a dad and granddad of a large family, which he shares with his spouse, Marjorie Harvey.

But before, Marjorie came into the picture; the "Family Feud" host was married to two other women- Mary Lee Harvey and Marcia Harvey.

"Presently, Steve Harvey's third marriage seems to be going smoothly as he and Marjorie try to handle their blended family."

According to Just Richest, Steve met his first wife, Marcia, at a mutual friend's party and the duo struck it off right there. The pair courted for a few years before walking down the aisle in 1980. 

They became parents in 1982 after Marcia gave birth to twin girls, Brandi and Karli. Eight years later, Harvey and his spouse welcomed a son named Broderick Harvey Jr.

In 1994, the pair called it quits following issues of irreconcilable differences. Steve went on to build his TV career while Marcia also made her choice.

After the divorce, she wrote a book, "Marcia: Eyes to the Soul," which centered around her life before, during, and after her matrimony to Steve.

Not much of Marcia's romantic life has gone public after her marriage to Harvey ended. She was, however, once rumored to be married to a man called Larry Greene, but neither of them has confirmed this.

"I'll always love my momma, she's my favorite girl"! My first teacher. My healer when I was hurt. My counselor when I was troubled and my biggest cheerleader when I needed a push! You are the finest example class, sophistication., dedication and sacrifice. You showed me how to walk tall, with my head held high. You gave me confidence. And if I ever felt defeated by the world, I called you and you built me back up so I could fight another day! You always spoke life into me, @iambrandiharvey and @bharv You told us the impossible didn't exist and the phrase "I CAN'T" could not be used in your house! We talk everyday because as an adult, I don't just call you Mom, I call you my friend. Life is sweeter because I get walk on this planet as your daughter!

Just Richest further shares that Steve tried his hands at matrimony again when he met Mary Shackelford. At the time both of them became man and wife, Harvey's showbiz career was at its beginning. With Mary Lee Harvey, Steve has a son, Wynton Harvey.

Their marriage came to an end in 2005, and following the divorce, Mary Harvey was able to secure a settlement of $40,000 per month until 2009.

In the heat of their separation, Lee Harvey broke some court rules, which stated that she mustn't discuss the circumstances of their divorce.

In the wake of this, Mary Lee Harvey was sent to jail for a brief term. Mary and Steve had quite some controversies, one of which Heavy disclosed as the mom-of-one suing the TV host for a sum of $60,000,000.

In her allegations, she accused him of child endangerment, kidnapping, conspiracy against right, and torture, among others.

Presently, Steve Harvey's third marriage seems to be going smoothly as he and Marjorie try to handle their blended family.
