Blair Underwood Announces Engagement To Friend Of 40 Years

Blair Underwood

November 24, (THEWILL) – Blair Underwood is making a long-term friendship official. The actor revealed he is engaged to Josie Hart, a friend of more than 40 years.

Underwood made this revelation when he attended the 2022 International Emmys with Hart.

“It was an incredibly momentous occasion. My personal highlight was walking the red carpet with my new fiancée, Josie Hart”, Underwood shared on Instagram along with a picture of the couple at the event.

“The most amazing, brilliant, beautiful, hilarious, thought-provoking & insightful person I know who continuously lives life out loud.”

The 58-year-old remarked that he and Hart had no one else but each other before he became famous.

“The future is crazy-bright Girl! None of us ever know where God will guide our paths. She’s had my back since before I even became an actor. When a 41-year friendship slaps you in the back of the head & blossoms into romance, you stand up, pay attention & step forward in gratitude. Gently forward. It begins,” he added.

He, however, did not reveal when they got engaged.

The engagement follows Underwood’s divorce from his wife of 27 years, Desiree DaCosta, in May 2021. They have two sons, Paris, Blake and a daughter, Brielle.
