Kevin Hart and His Pregnant Wife Eniko Raise Money to Support Fight against Racial Injustice
The expecting couple recently took part in the #BlackoutTuesday in reaction to racial injustice, and now they are taking another significant step to help the Black community.
40-year-old stand-up comedian and actor Kevin Hart and his 35-year-old wife Eniko, who’s pregnant with their second child together (Kevin has two older children from his first marriage) are committed to the fight against racism.
In the wake of the campaign to fight racial injustice in the US, recently revived as a consequence of the killing of George Floyd by the police in Minnesota, the celebrity couple is using its platform to raise funds for the cause.
The “Jumanji: The Next Level” star took to his Instagram account on June 17 to announce the launching of a new shirt design from his and his wife's clothing brand Fabletics the following day.
In the post, Kevin and his wife of four years can be seen wearing their “Together We Change” t-shirts to publicize that “100% of net proceeds” from their sales will go to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund.
Apart from promoting this great initiative, the actor used the opportunity to remind others about their individual responsibility in making the country advance towards a more equal society, writing in his caption:
“It’s time to speak as one in the name of permanent, lasting change.”
“So we invite you to stand with us, in solidarity with the Black community. Let’s make a real difference – together,” Kevin concluded.
Before the intensification of the Black Lives Matter movement due to Floyd’s death in Minneapolis, Kevin was focusing his efforts in helping in the fight against the novel coronavirus, which has created an unprecedented health crisis in the US.
Always one to give back to society, Kevin made a great gesture back in May to not only help first responders and health workers in these difficult times but also to publicly thank them for their courage and sacrifice.
During an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” (via video call) on May 21, Kevin and Jimmy surprised Philadelphia nurse Natasha Lewis with a call that revealed her that Beyond Meat was donating $10,000 to her and food for the nurses in her unit.
Not only was Lewis relieved by the news after doing so much, but she was also thrilled to have the opportunity to video chat with one of her favorite stars.
Kevin’s acts of kindness amid the COVID-19 outbreak are not limited to this. He is known to have donated at least $1 million to the novel coronavirus relief effort.
QUARANTINE WITH HIS PREGNANT WIFE
Pregnancy is a beautiful thing, but we all know that it also comes with its dose of stress and irritability, and this all can only get worse when an expectant couple has to stay together in lockdown because of quarantine.
As Kevin shared in a remote conversation with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres from his home office in late May, his wife Eniko was growing a little tired of having him around 24/7.
"She's not getting on my nerves, but she's saying that I'm getting on her nerves. And you know, whatever. I don't fight it. But apparently I'm annoying," Kevin admitted.
Nevertheless, Kevin, who is normally very busy with his work as an actor, said it was refreshing for him to be able to get to spend all this time together with his wife at home, especially now that she is pregnant with their first daughter together.
