The “Power” actor recently shared a beautiful picture with his blonde son. He and his wife, Jennifer Pfautch, have faced critics for their interracial marriage since 2012, but they keep going stronger.
Omari Hardwick is known for his roles in series like “Saved,” “Dark Blue,” “Being Mary Jane” and most recently, for giving life to James "Ghost" St. Patrick in Starz's series “Power.”
Hardwick professional and personal lives couldn’t be better, but just as he gets good reviews for his acting job, he also gets critics from people of the black community who can’t fathom the idea of Omari being married to a white woman.
But Hardwick will never tolerate hate against his gorgeous wife, and he has slammed several haters in the past for calling his wife “ugly” and calling his marriage a mistake. According to the Grio, last year, a so-called-fan left this comment on Omari’s Instagram page: “Love you ghost … you lost points for marrying white…but we still got you,” and he answered “I’d prefer you not to have me. You just lost all points with me. Good luck in life.”
The couple tied the knot in 2012, and they have two kids, daughter Nova, 5 and son Brave, 2. Omari is a proud father, and he loves to spend time with his adorable kids, who have blonde hair and brown skin, the classic mix on biracial kids.
Jennifer Pfautch is aware of the fact that some of Omari’s fans don’t approve their marriage, but she’s an outspoken woman, and even when Hardwick is there to defend her, she also has a few words for the haters.
Last year, on the 50th anniversary of the legalization of interracial marriages in the United States, she shared on Instagram a beautiful black and white photo kissing her husband as she wrote in the caption:
“Some of you sorry, insecure souls, silently or not so silently, wish it was still illegal. I would like to update you on a few things:
1. You lost. 2. Who anyone loves was/is NEVER any of your business.3. Love ALWAYS wins. 4. Catch the [expletive] up.”
This year, she repeated the action, sharing a photo posing with Omari where both of them look blissed as she wrote in her caption:
“On this day in 1967, the Supreme Court, in the historic case of Loving v. Virginia, struck down all remaining laws in the United States banning interracial marriage. Love will always win. #LovingDay #LoveWins #LoveIsLoveIsLove #LoveHasNoColor”
We're glad to know that despite the critics, Omari, Jennifer, and their gorgeous kids have a strong bond. They make a beautiful family, and we wish them all the happiness.
