LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Kevin Hart has just reached an emotional parenting milestone with his 18-year-old daughter all set for her prom. The comedian, 43, posted two adorable photos of his daughter Heaven on Instagram on May 21 as she prepared for her prom.
Heaven grinned with her father, who was wearing sweatpants and a graphic T-shirt, in the set of pictures. She looked beautiful in an emerald green, off-the-shoulder gown. The father-daughter pair is seen holding hands in one snap, and in another, Heaven is seen toting a camera and a pair of Converse as the two stroll through a garden.

‘My daughter wants to be an entertainer’
“I have no words…just pure joy,” the ‘Get Hard’ actor captioned the photos. “My little girl looked unbelievable yesterday. Where does the time go….#Harts.” Along with Heaven, Hart has a son named Hendrix, 15, with his ex-wife Torrei Hart. He also has a son named Kenzo, 5, and daughter Kaori, 2, with his 38-year-old wife Eniko Hart.
Hart has stated that Heaven is eager to follow in her father’s footsteps and dreams of becoming a comedian. However, she would have to wait until she was 18 to pursue a career in entertainment, the actor told People in 2020.
“My daughter wants to be an entertainer so bad, I’m just holding her back til she’s 18,” Hart told People at the time. “I made a daddy decision to hold her back til she’s of age and then we can pursue whatever dream we want.”
‘I love that she’s growing up’
Heaven loves to make her dad laugh in the interim. “My daughter [Heaven] makes me laugh daily, because she thinks she’s ultra cool. She’ll text and call me ‘G’ and ‘Old raggedy back Jack’ because I hurt my back,” Hart told People in August 2022. “That always makes me giggle.
Heaven intended to attend college outside of the state, Hart revealed on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ in February 2022. “I’ve been trying to manipulate her like, ‘Maybe you need a place here in LA ’cause the schools here are just better,'” he joked. “She’s talking about New York.”
He added, “I love that she’s growing up, that’s my best friend, my heart. And it’s a little emotional. I see myself realizing that that time is coming for her to leave the house and I don’t like it”.
