Marjorie Elaine Harvey: Who Is Steve Harvey’s Wife?

Steve Harvey is best known as the larger-than-life host of the game show Family Feud. His facial expressions and hilarious reactions to participant answers have caused him to go viral dozens of times. Before his stint as famed talk show host, he starred in a 1990’s television series called The Steve Harvey Show.

Many people don’t know, however, that Harvey is a big family man. He and his current wife, Marjorie Elaine Harvey, have seven children and five grandchildren together. They are often seen doing things as a family, with one or all of their children. But who is Steve Harvey’s wife?

Harvey was born Marjorie Elaine Ridge-Woods on October 10, 1974. She is best known in her own right as the creator of infamous fashion blog Lady Loves Couture. She also runs the websites The Lady Loves Couture, Marjorie Harvey’s Closet, and Marjorie Harvey’s Handbags.

She is a well-respected member of the fashion community, and receives invitations to the majority of high-end social events. Harvey is the perfect build for a fashionista, with a slender 6’2″ frame. This makes her the same height as her husband.

The love story of Steve and Marjorie Harvey had a rough start. The two met at a comedy club in Memphis, Tennessee in 1990. When Steve saw his future wife, he knew it was meant to be. In a later interview, he recalled how the first words he ever spoke to Marjorie were: “I don’t know who you are but I’m going to marry you.”

The feeling was mutual, as in the same interview Marjorie revealed that she knew “he was the one shortly after I began dating him… but then he just disappeared.” That is where the rough start comes in.

After a short relationship the two broke up. They reunited years later, in 2005, just shortly after Steve divorced his second wife. The two became friends and began dating once more. They finally married after a few years, in 2007. They have been together ever since.

How long have they been together?

Marjorie and Steve began dating in 2005, which means they have been together for 13 years. They have been married for 11 years. They have known each other considerably longer, however, since they first met in 1990. This means the couple has known one another for 28 years.

Marjorie Harvey shares peeks inside their family life

Marjorie Harvey is active on Instagram. In addition to sharing images pertaining to her own fashions, she shares glimpses into the life she shares with her husband, children, and grandchildren. One post shows Marjorie with her daughter, Lori. The caption shares that they (with Steve) made guest appearances together on a new show called Grans.

A few images can be seen of the family’s recent vacation to Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates. The couple, with at least some of their children, spent the Thanksgiving holiday there. They can be seen enjoying a family meal, and Marjorie can even be seen riding a camel.

Of course, as with any proud grandparent, there are plenty of atypical shares of her adorable grandchildren. She shares videos of them praying, playing, eating, and interacting with other family members.

The couple recently made headlines when Steve jokingly told Ellen DeGeneres that his wife “went overboard” with the holiday decorations this year. Marjorie’s fantastic response? To show off her decorations, of course! The Harvey’s often keep up a half-joking/half-serious conversation for the public. Another example is when Steve Harvey claims his new beard was only there because his wife told him he couldn’t get rid of it.
