Steve Harvey welcomes 8th grandchild

Despite a famous blunder in 2015 when he announced the wrong winner at the Miss Universe pageant, Harvey has continued to thrive in Hollywood and has become the patriarch of his own big family.

For Steve Harvey, family is everything. He once said, “Family is my reason why. I work to leave a legacy and hopefully make the world a better place for them.”

A Remarkable Blended Family

Steve Harvey’s family is a beautiful blend of love and togetherness. Over the years, he has welcomed seven children and is now a proud grandpa to eight grandchildren, with the latest addition arriving in October 2023.

In 1982, while working as an insurance salesman, Harvey became a father to twins Brandi and Karli. He also shares a son named Broderick with his first wife, Marcia, whom he divorced in 1994.

During his second marriage to Mary Shackelford (1996 to 2006), Steve Harvey welcomed another son named Wynton, who is now 26 years old.

In 2007, Harvey married Marjorie Harvey and embraced her three children, Morgan, Jason, and Lori, as his own. Together, they formed a true blended family that radiates love and support.

Marjorie once shared, “When you’re dealing with a blended family, everyone is coming from a place of broken. We knew this was right, and now we’re mom and dad to everybody.”
