His marriage to Tamron Hall
The popular host has stayed tight-lipped for quite a while when it comes to her relationship and marriage with Steve.
In the interview for People magazine, Tamron revealed: ‘I’ve known him for many years. We would run into each other, and he’s shy, so I wasn’t clear that he was hitting on me exactly. I thought he was just being friendly.’ While being interviewed by Ryan Seacrest she said jokingly: “He would run into me, and he kept saying, ‘What are the odds? I’m like, ‘Cause you’re stalking me, the odds are high.” Two years after they met, they ran into each other at a pool in L.A., started talking, and Steve asked on a date. Just three weeks later they were dating, and even moved in together. However, neither of them disclosed any information about their ongoing romance to the public, and continued to keep their relationship under the radar.
To everyone’s surprise, in 2017 she told Steve Harvey that her boyfriend worked in the entertainment business, but didn’t disclose any further details.
Many fans were shocked when the couple tied the knot out of the blue in March of 2019 in their Harlem home. Soon after the wedding, Tamron revealed that she was expecting, and on 24 April 2019 gave birth to son Moses. This child was a miracle for both of them, given that Tamron gave birth at the age of 48. The daytime star said: “It’s his first child, and he also thought he would never be a dad.”
In her interview for the People, she also shared some details about their different religious upbringing, and how she and Steve are trying to combine both, Tamron said:” He’s Jewish, so we had a bris here at the house,” – Jewish ceremony of circumcision – adding: ”My mom nearly passed out. We had both grandparents on each side there, and he’s going to Texas to have a christening or a confirmation at my mom’s southern Baptist church.”
