Kevin Hart is looking at quarantine as both a "gift and a curse." ET's Kevin Frazier spoke with the 40-year-old comedian ahead of the release of his audio book, The Decision, and Hart discusses what it's like being quarantined with his wife, Eniko, as they await the arrival of their baby girl. The couple already shares Kenzo, 2, while Hart is also dad to Heaven, 15, and Hendrix, 12, from a previous relationship.
"You don’t wanna see anything happen where people are losing their lives, where it's a catastrophic moment," Hart says of the coronavirus, before sharing the upside of being at home for an extended period of time. "The best thing is just continued time with my wife and my kids, actually sitting down, actually being home, being present. It's been unreal."
"Through any pregnancy with my wife, now my ex-wife, I was always on the go," Hart continues of his previous relationship. "So I have never been there consistently through the stages of growth throughout the months... I have never been there to see the progression and the mood swings and really be there."
Hart jokes that his wife is at the stage of pregnancy where he's "got to shut up" and do "as I'm told," including making ice cream runs and participating in TikTok videos. On top of those activities, his wife and daughter have also influenced his decision to dye his graying hair.
"There's people in this house that care about me, and they deserve to see me at my best or close to it," he says. "It was getting too tough. I caught my wife shaking her head looking at me a couple times. My daughter was like, 'What are you doing?' They were on me. [They] started calling me 'grandpop' and asking me where my cane was. A whole bunch of that."
Hart's happy to do it all, though, and can't wait to have his expanding family come to fruition.
"I'm excited. [I'm] about to be a family of six. Two girls, two boys, two dogs," he says. "I would've never imagined this in a thousand years. It's a beautiful thing. I'm blessed beyond my years. [I'm] just holding my breath and getting ready for what's to come. That's what I'm doing."
In addition to preparing for his little one's arrival, Hart is also busy gearing up for the release of his audio book, The Decision: Overcoming Today's BS for Tomorrow's Success, which will debut on Audible June 9.
