Steve Harvey shared some thoughts about her daughter Lori Harvey‘s PDA photos with her boyfriend Michael B. Jordan. The couple went Instagram official last year, and they haven’t shied away from sharing their romance publicly.
Steve Harvey sat down with Ellen DeGeneres to discuss the pair while looking at Lori and Michael’s holiday photos from Instagram, and that’s when daddy Harvey felt ‘very uncomfortable.’
In one of the pictures Ellen displayed, Lori sat on Michael’s lap with her arm around him. “Look at that,” DeGeneres, 63, said while pointing at the snap of Lori, 25, kissing her actor beau while sitting on his ap. “That’s happening in front of you?” To which Steve replied, “I’ve never seen that picture before. I’m very uncomfortable with that picture, right now. Not really feeling that picture.”
But while Steve Harvey might not be too thrilled to see his daughter’s picture with her boyfriend, he spilled some details about some sweet gestures from his future son-in-law.
Harvey went on to share that Michael spent his second Christmas with the Harvey family, and he went big on gifts for his potential future in-laws.
When asked if the Black Panther star is a good gift-giver, Steve says, “Hell yeah. That’s why I like him. That boy comes through,” the Family Feud host quips. “He’s trying to impress the family… He bought me this big, 100 cigar box of the most hard-to-get cigars, 100 of them in this big box and he gave that to me. He gave my wife some skis. Who do that? Only way you give your potential mother-in-law some skis is because you want her to be your mother-in-law.”
As for whether Michael has his blessing, Steve says, “I’m pulling for him because he’s a really good guy, comes from a really good family, so I’m kind of pulling for him. But at the same time, I’ve got my eye on him, you know?”
He then went on to joke, “I can’t whoop him, but he ever turn around, Imma knock his a** out.”
While Steve Harvey swears by his fitness regimen, he also commends Michael on his impressive workouts. “That boy be in the gym, he comes in my gym to work out and I go, ‘Woo! I’m impressed,'” Steve jokes.
Back in September 2021, Steve told ET that he approved of Michael.
“This guy is not a representative. He is genuinely who he who he looks like he is,” he said at the time. “And he’s- I mean, like, it threw me off at first, because he was so kind. You know, I figure, ‘OK, this is the game right?’ But it wasn’t. This dude was sincere and he’s proven to be a really, really good, good guy. I’m pulling for him, you know, for them.”
The A Journal for Jordan star threw his girlfriend a surprise 25th birthday party last week.
Despite not being present for the birthday night, Harvey, who turned 25 on Jan. 13, shared photos and videos from the surprise birthday party planned for her by her beau. The model was surrounded by her close friends, including actress Ryan Destiny, singer Normani, Rabbani Label founder Khat Brim and hairstylist Ray Dodson.
She gave fans a peek at the celebration in her Instagram Stories, showing off a room set up with balloons, including a big silver “25” for her special day. The tables were adorned with beautiful white floral arrangements, and custom menus read “Lori’s 25th.”
