Ok, so it was a little awkward.
Kevin Hart and wife Eniko celebrated the upcoming arrival of their son, and did so in a lavish jungle-themed party attended by family and friends. The event took place at the Calamigos Beach Club in Malibu.
During the party, the name of their son was revealed as Kenzo. And to celebrate that, Hart wore clothing from the brand Kenzo, the little one’s name was emblazoned on the photo booth wall, and “KENZO” was spelled out on top of the dessert table in big blue letters.
Updates of the event were shared on Snapchat throughout the day, where Kevin did his best to show that he and Eniko are doing just fine following the controversial cheating and extortion scandal she had to deal with earlier this month.
Before the celebration took place, there was a report that the star had dished out $118,000 for the baby shower. Despite that though, they cut corners on the animals, opting for golden retrievers with faux lion manes as opposed to actual big cats. Kevin joked about it in a Snapchat video.
“We couldn’t afford a lion, so we just got a dog and put the thing around the dog,” he said. “It’s still ballin’, it’s just on a budget.”
This will be the first child for Eniko, 33, and the third for Kevin, 38, who has Heavenly and Hendrix from his marriage to Torrei Hart. His kids were present to help celebrate their new baby brother.
When speaking to Good Morning America about expecting another child back in June, Hart joked that despite it being something he planned with Eniko, he wasn’t ready to be a dad again.
“I kept buying dogs. I held off for a long time,” Hart said. “Every time she brought a baby up, I just showed up with a dog. Eventually, she was like, ‘No. I want to have a kid.’ I was like, ‘I got two kids. We’re married. My kids are your kids.’ She was like, ‘I know, but they’re grown. I want new ones.’ I was like, ‘Stop talking about my kids like they’re used cars.’ I was like ‘Alright, no, I get it. You’re absolutely right. I want to have a baby.’ So then we decided to have a baby. We actually planned it.”
And he’s a-comin’!
Check out pictures from the event below, which, all things considered, looked like it turned out quite lovely:
