In case you’re not familiar, Steve Harvey has a long track record with Miss Universe Pageants. The 2021 show was his 6th time hosting the show, despite having crowned the wrong pageant winner back in 2015. According to People, he thinks of the show as one of the “highlights of his year.” So it only makes sense that he was super excited to have his daughter, Lori Harvey, join him this year.
“This is my sixth time hosting the Miss Universe competition, and it is always a highlight of my year,” Harvey told the publication. “Each show, I’m in awe of the smart, fiery, and talented women who take the stage. I continue to champion this show and participate, not only as a host but as a producer, to show the world what you can do, if you put your mind to it.”
He even went so far as to compare his daughter to the talented women on stage. Which, considering that she’s a model and is a pretty savvy businesswoman (via AfroTech). “I’m so blessed I get to share this experience with my own daughter this year, who embodies that ideal every day.”
