Yes, to finding love again!

Actor Blair Underwood reveals that he is now engaged to his dear friend Josie Hart. The pair had been close friends for more than 41 years. He took to social media to share how the relationship blossomed from friendship to romance.

“My personal highlight was walking the red carpet with my new fiancée Josie Hart,” he wrote. “The most amazing, brilliant, beautiful, hilarious, thought provoking & insightful person I know who continuously lives life out-loud. 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.”

Underwood was previously married to his ex-wife Desiree DaCosta for 27 years. In June 2021, DaCosta filed for divorce. Underwood and DaCosta share three adult children together,  25-year-old son Paris, 24-year-old daughter Brielle and 21-year-old son Blake.

It’s unclear how long the two have been dating, but we are happy that Underwood is giving love a second chance! Cheers to Black Love.
