Summer Wedding! Kevin Hart announced his wedding date during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday.
When asked if he has set a date, “Ya know black men tend to draw these things out, but I cut it short where I could,” Hart told Ellen DeGeneres. “We’re getting married August 8th. It’s over man. August 8th.”
The Ride Along 2 actor took his fiancee as a date to the Golden Globes on Sunday night where they both stunned on the red carpet. But it was a different woman Hart swept off her feet at the award show. The actor joked with DeGeneres about his heroic act of having to catch Lady Gaga as she fell walking off stage after accepting her award.
“[Lady Gaga] got an award. And what people don’t know after she got the award she was walking off she fell. I like had to catch her. And when I caught her I said, ‘I just want you to realize how big my arms are. They’re just. It could have been bad. It could have been really bad for you, but I saved your life.”
The comedian told Ellen that “the inner hero in me grabbed her and my instincts kicked in.” Even though he had a heroic moment, Hart went on to say, “It was like a thing and I was like ‘I’m engaged’ true story.”
Hart proposed to girlfriend Eniko Parrish in August 2014 at her 30th birthday bash. The proposal was captured on video and shared on Instagram.
“On this perfect day I chose to make the most perfect decision,” Hart says as he gets down on one knee. The crowd erupted in cheers as Hart pulls out the engagement ring box and says, “Honey, I’m asking you…Will you marry me?” The Get Hard actor posted a photo with Parrish showing off her engagement ring.
Parrish also shared the happy news on her Instagram, “I said YES!!!!! To the most amazing man in the world.”
Best of luck to the happy couple – we cannot wait to see wedding pictures! Watch the entire interview with Ellen DeGeneres below.
