Kevin Hart

This is the moment most daddies fear: that moment when their young daughter discovers a boy. Actor Kevin Hart’s daughter Heaven Hart is already crushing on boys, and she’s only 12.

E! News’ Maria Menounos caught up with the ‘Ride Along’ star at the Rally Health Fest in San Francisco, where Hart opened up about his fear.

Hart acknowledged that it’s unrealistic to forbid his daughter from even looking at boys. But he’s terrified nonetheless.

“It’s scary stuff. It’s about to get tough,” said Hart. “She’s already tough. She’s having a soccer-themed party. ‘OK honey.’ The word ‘no’ does not exist, no matter how tired you are.”

Hart told Menounos that his little girl is already starting to talk about boys. “She actually talks to me, which makes me mad but I can’t let her know that because she’s comfortable with telling me,” Hart said. “‘I think I like this guy, this boy. He’s nice. He’s cool. I just want you to know because I just want to tell you stuff,'” Hart recalled his daughter telling him.

“I’m going to find [the boy],” joked the protective father.

On the other hand, he said he fears his daughter is a little too fast for her age.

“This is the first time I’m dealing with this, so it’s not like I have a ton of experience,” Hart told Menounos. “My mom had two boys. It was me and my brothers, so this is me dealing with a girl at a different level. I mean this is my heart. I don’t want to prohibit things, but she is a child, so you make sure she understands the parameters that she can and can’t do.”

He continued, “We’re living in different times, so the way you could prohibit things back in the day, it’s different now. The Internet gives kids access to anything and everything.

“Communication is extremely important, and that’s what my daughter and I have,” he said. “I love that. I laugh a lot at stuff at first, but then I give my dad speech. You can’t let them see you laugh.”
