How Old Is Broderick Harvey Jr.?

Broderick Harvey Jr. was born on April 29, 1991, in Los Angeles, California, United States, and is currently 32 years old. His birth sign is Taurus, and he is an American citizen by birth. Broderick Jr. belongs to the African American ethnic group as a result of being born to parents of African American origin.

Speaking of parents, the fashion designer is the oldest son of well-known American comedian, actor, and television host Steve Harvey. If you’re familiar with the popular TV show Family Feud, then you know who Broderick Jr.’s father is. He’s the dude who asks all the questions.

Who is Broderick Harvey’s Mother?

Broderick Jr.’s father, Steve, is currently well into his third marriage to a woman named Marjorie Harvey née Bridges. However, she is not the woman responsible for bringing Broderick Jr. into this world.

That privilege belongs to his first wife, Marcia Harvey, to whom Steve was married for around 14 years. Broderick Harvey’s mother, Marcia, is a 69 year-old author, poet, and businesswoman who is currently married to Larry Greene. She was born on January 22, 1955, in Cleveland, Ohio, United States.

Broderick’s Parents Were On The Verge Of Divorce When He Was Born

Broderick Jr.’s parents met for the first time in 1980 at a mutual friend’s wedding party. At the time, his father was an unfulfilled insurance salesman while his mother was trying to make ends meet as a department store worker.

They were immediately drawn to each other and began dating not long after. Without paying heed to their relatively modest economic situation, they decided to tie the knot in 1981.

During the early days of their union, the fashion designer’s father quit his job to focus his time and energies on building a career in the entertainment industry as a comedian. He did that to the detriment of his family, and although he was becoming successful, the cost to his family and marriage was quite steep, in the sense that it led to separation in 1990 and divorce in 1994.

It is important to unveil the fact that just before his parents separated, Broderick Jr.’s mother was already about five months pregnant with him. As already indicated, he would be born in April 1991.

The Split Affected his Relationship with his Dad But They Have Mended Fences

At this point, we feel there is a need to point out that Broderick Jr. and his father, Steve, did not get off to the best possible start as father and son. The comedian was quite absent during his son’s formative years due to the commitment he had toward his then-budding career in entertainment.

That commitment ensured a fractured relationship, fraught with neglect and abdication of responsibility, between father and son during the early part of Broderick Jr.’s life. All that now appears to be water under the bridge as Steve has evidently mended fences with his children, including his oldest son, from his first marriage.

Broderick Harvey has spent some time, about four years from 2008 to 2012, working for his father on the Steve Harvey Radio Network as a Social Media facilitator. He currently also works in the product development and brand integration department at Steve Harvey World Group.

Broderick Harvey Attended Moorehouse College 

Broderick Jr. was only about three years old when his parents’ divorce was finalized. That affected a lot of areas in his upbringing, but it thankfully did not affect his formal education.

Steve Harvey’s oldest son received his high school diploma from North Springs Charter High School in Sandy Springs, Georgia, before proceeding to the males-only liberal arts college Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, where he spent the following four years after high school, from 2010 to 2014 studying for a Bachelor’s degree in Arts.

He is an Entrepreneur With His Own Fashion Line 

Many will agree that getting out from under the shadow of a father like Steve Harvey would be considered quite an achievement, and while he may never be able to match his father’s profile completely, Broderick Harvey Jr. has done well for himself career-wise.

Broderick Harvey Jr. is very much his own man, a successful entrepreneur who has managed to set up two thriving businesses. The first is a successful fashion line known as Need Money, Not Friends. They deal in all kinds of fashion accessories but particularly in tops and hoodies.

His second business endeavor involves the B. Harvey Photography studio he set up in 2009, where he indulges his creative side as an artist. His current exact net worth is unknown, but several sources have claimed that Steve Harvey’s oldest son’s net worth could be anywhere between one and five million USD.

Is Broderick Harvey Jr. Married?

When it comes to matters relating to his personal life, including love and family, Broderick Harvey Jr. plays his card very close to his chest. Everything about him, though, points to the possibility that he is not in a romantic relationship and is instead focusing all his energies and time on his career and family.

Speaking of family, the fashion designer may be Steve Harvey’s oldest son, but he is by no means the comedian’s oldest or only child. He has two older sisters, Karli and Brandi Harvey, the twin daughters his parents had within one year of their time as a married couple.

Following a divorce from his mother, Broderick Jr.’s father remarried, this time to a woman named Mary Lee Shackelford, in 1996. Their marriage ended in 2005, but before it did, they had a son together. His name is Wynton.

In 2007, Steve Harvey married Marjorie Harvey née Bridges and adopted all three of her children, Morgan, Jason, and Lori, all of whom have become Broderick Jr.’s step-siblings.

His mother also remarried a man named Larry Greene. However, the details of the marriage have been kept so much under the radar that it is difficult to determine if she has any children from the marriage.
