Meet the new wife of Blair Underwood. A former “The S*x and the City” cast member wed Josie Hart on June 24, 2023. Although they have only recently begun dἀting, they have been close friends for many years.

In November 2022, Underwood declared his engagement to Hart. He said in part-

“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!”

Hart chooses to maintain a quiet profile instead of actor Underwood, who lives a prominent life. Despite appearing with her Underwood on the red carpet, she lives out of the spotlight.

Before dἀting Hart, Underwood was married to Desiree DaCosta for 27 years. Hart’s acting achievements include Dear White People, The New Adventures of Old Christine, S*x and the City, and Quantico.

The previous couple welcomed two sons, Paris and Blake, and a daughter, Brielle. In 2021, Underwood and DaCosta made their separation public. Here is all there is to know about Hart, Underwood’s new wife.

Blair Underwood and Josie Hart Have Been Friends for 40 Years

In an Instagram post announcing their engagement in November 2022, the L.A. Law star said that Underwood and Hart initially connected when they were 16. Underwood wrote-

“She’s had my back since before I even became an actor.”

The actor claimed they had “parallel, separate lives” because she lived on the East Coast with her children, and he predominantly lived on the West Coast in California. Because of this, they “rarely saw each other.”

They did, though, continue to be “great friends” over time. Not only Underwood and Hart but every single one of their offspring. “We’ve always been great friends. And I’m talking about the whole family,” he said.
