Who is her father Steve Harvey?

Broderick Stephen Harvey Sr. was born in Welch, West Virginia USA, on 17 January 1957, under the zodiac sign of Capricorn. He’s perhaps best known for hosting the game-shows “Family Feud” and “Celebrity Family Feud”, while he’s also hosted the Miss Universe pageant six times.

American coal miner Jesse and his wife Eloise Vera Harvey raised their son Steve in Welch, alongside his siblings Mona, Pauline and Terry; Steve struggled with stuttering while growing up, but was able to overcome it. He attended Glenville High School, and became interested in both comedy and acting during his time there. Upon matriculating, Steve enrolled at Kent State University, prior to transferring to West Virginia University, however, he eventually quit, wanting to pursue a career.

His first performance as a stand-up comedian was on 8 October 1985, while he had previously worked numerous jobs to financially support himself, and was an insurance salesman, a boxer and a carpet cleaner, amongst others.

Steve slept in his car for three years sometime in the second half of the ‘80s, but eventually made his breakthrough on 16 April 1990, when he reached the finals in the Second Annual Johnnie Walker National Comedy Search. He was then hired to host the variety show “Showtime at the Apollo”, appeared in the comedy series “Me and the Boys”, and in 1996 began hosting his own “The Steve Harvey Show”, which ran until 2002.

Since 2000, Steve’s been hosting the radio program “The Steve Harvey Morning Show”; in 2003, he appeared in the musical comedy movie “The Fighting Temptations”, as well as in the  teen comedy movie “Love Don’t Cost a Thing”, then in 2004 the comedy film “Johnson Family Vacation” and the  dance movie “You Got Served”.

He published his first book in 2009, entitled “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man”, and a movie based on the book was released in 2012, entitled “Think Like a Man”; Steve’s published three more books: “Straight Talk, No Chaser” in 2010, “Act Like a Success” in 2014, and “Jump, Take the Leap of Faith to Achieve Your Life of Abundance” in 2016.

It was in September 2010 that Steve became the host of the game-show “Family Feud”, and his hosting vastly improved the show’s view ratings; he received his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2013.

Steve hosted his first Miss Universe pageant in December 2015, when he mistakenly named the wrong girl as a winner; he apologized both publicly and personally to Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez whom he had crowned the winner prior to announcing that he had been mistaken, and that Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach was Miss Universe. He then returned to host the Miss Universe pageant in 2016, ‘17, ‘18, ‘19 and 2021.

He married his first wife Marcia in 1981, and they have a son Broderick Harvey Jr. and two daughters Karli and Brandi together, but divorced in 1994. He married his second wife Mary Shackelford in 1996 – their divorce was finalized in 2005, after sharing son Wynton together.
