Congrats to Kevin Hart. The superstar comedian and his wife, Eniko Parrish, welcomed a baby boy Nov. 20, reports Radar. Hart posted the new bundle of joy’s birth on social media, writing, “God is truly amazing. Kenzo Kash Hart was born at 1:45 a.m. He is healthy and already smiling. Thank you all for your prayers.” Parrish went into labor more than a week ago, causing Hart to abruptly end an interview. Just a few months ago an alleged cheating and extortion scandal threatened to tear the newlyweds apart. Model Montia Sabbag announced in a news conference with attorney Lisa Bloom that she shared an “intimate” relationship with Hart but denied extorting him.

The event was underwritten by board members Jean Shafiroff, who is known as the Diva of Philanthropy, and Jay Moorhead. Sponsors and volunteer groups included Chase, Nike, Kohl’s and Whole Foods. “The families we serve face numerous challenges each day, and the holidays can be especially tough,” said New York City Mission Society President Elsie McCabe Thompson. “This time of the year is a chance to give thanks and to give back, so I thank our board members Jean Shafiroff and Jay Moorhead, staff and the volunteers for coming together on this night to start the holiday season off on a high note. This is what the holidays are all about.”
