Kevin Hart: I messed up my first marriage

Kevin Hart "messed up" his first marriage.

The 'Central Intelligence' star was married to Torrei Hart from 2003 to 2011 and admits when he tied the knot, he didn't "really understand the definition of marriage".

He said: "I was young on my first marriage. I'm not ashamed to say it, guys. I got married at the age of 22.

"I was still all over the place. I didn't really understand the definition of marriage. I wasn't ready for it, so I take responsibility. I can say I messed my first marriage up. I'm man enough to say that."

Joking about the situation, he quipped: "At the same time, that was when I was in the prime of my sexy, so don't blame me. That's when I was figuring it out."

Despite their split, Kevin works hard with his ex spouse to co-parent their two children, Hendrix, eight, and Heaven, 11.

He added: "I will say that me and my ex-wife, regardless of the problems we went through, are in an amazing place now where we're friends, we're great parents, we're co-parents."

And the 37-year-old actor and comedian admits he was nervous about marrying his now-wife Eniko Parrish earlier this year as it was a "big step".

Speaking to Chelsea Handler on her Netflix show, he shared: "To make this step is a big step. It took me some time. It took seven years.

"And then I was like, 'You know what? She deserves it, because I can't keep just letting this walk around free. That's not fair to her. I got to lock this up.' I'm talking about my body. That's what I'm talking about."
