As you may know, Hill Harper recently starred in the Tupac film: ‘All Eyez On Me’ as Kevin Powell, the journalist/author who interviewed Tupac for the cover of Vibe Magazine in 1995.
Harper recently stopped by Good Morning America to chop it up with Robin Roberts and talk about where this journey we call life has taken him.
Harper went as far as 2015 when his friend staged an intervention and gave him an extra push to adopt and start a family.
““I always thought I was going to get married, have my own kids and I was going to adopt,” said Harper to Robin Roberts. “I had talked about adopting and I had talked about wanting to be this dad, and she said, ‘You’re going to be a great dad but I think you’re waiting too long. You may get to a point where you’ll decide you’re not going to do it. Even though you’re not married, why can’t you just be a dad now?’
Fast forward a few months later, Harpers friend called him with some news:
‘There’s a wonderful young woman who is having a son in three weeks. Would you be interested in adopting him?’”
Still undecided the actor/philanthropist took a leap and stepped up to the plate by adopting baby Pierce!
Hill Harper actually left the set of ‘All Eyez On Me’ to be in the delivery room, and physically cut the umbilical cord.
“I’m so proud that Pierce chose me to be his dad.”
Congratulations Hill Harper!
