CELEBRATING LOVE

Jordan confessed that he is elated with his relationship, with a source revealing that they went to the Caribbean soon after their public announcement. Apparently, these two can't keep their hands off each other. 

The parent said he turned over every nook and cranny to find something to dislike about Jordan.

If this doesn't scream love, the fact that Jordan can't seem to stop proudly showing off his girlfriend on social media says a lot. Finally, he said, exasperated, it's time to celebrate their relationship.

LUXURIOUS VACATIONS

On their lavish Caribbean holiday earlier this year, Jordan and Harvey chose to go to the island country of St Barts. Throwing caution to the wind completely, the lovebirds didn't hesitate to show off some PDA. 

The "Shade Room" chose to share the couple's affection for each other, posting pictures of their vacation online. They spent a lot of time in or by the water, enjoying a speed boat ride in one photo.

PARENT'S APPROVAL

Multi-talented television presenter, actor, and comedian Steve Harvey is the stepfather of Jordan's gorgeous girlfriend. Luckily, he is in Steve's good books, with the dad expressing

"This guy is such a good guy, man"

The parent said he turned over every nook and cranny to find something to dislike about Jordan, but there was nothing. He expressed many of Harvey's boyfriends stuck around too long for his liking in the past. 

One thing that Steve may not have found out about Jordan when he was doing all the sleuthing is that the seemingly cool actor is a bit of a geek. For one, he is a big fan of anime

He also seems to be into video games, doing voiceovers for "Gears of War III." Beyond all that, many may be surprised that the "B" in his name is actually the shortened version of "Bakari."
