RUMORS started circulating about Steve Harvey’s stepdaughter’s potential pregnancy after she uploaded a story to Instagram.

Is Lori Harvey pregnant?

Social media is buzzing after Lori Harvey posted a photo to her story on January 2 with her boyfriend, Michael B. Jordan, 34.

The Instagram influencer and model wished her followers a Happy New Year while calling Jordan her “babydaddy.”

The couple has kept their relationship relatively quiet but celebrated their one-year anniversary in November.

However, in April, Jordan spoke with People about his relationship with Harvey which was made public in February 2021.

“I’m still private, and I want to protect that, but it just felt like it was a moment of just wanting to put it out there and move on,” he said, adding, “I am extremely happy.”

Harvey and Jordan have not confirmed if they are expecting or elaborated on the cryptic Instagram post.

Where does the term ‘baby daddy’ come from?

The phrase ‘baby daddy’ is widely believed to have originated in Jamaica from the terms baby-father and baby-mother and was first cited in the Kingston Daily Gleaner in 1966.

Peter L. Patrick, a linguist professor told Slate in 2006 the term baby daddy was likely to have been Jamaican-Creole, pronounced biebifaada, and biebimada.

Patrick said the term would “definitely imply there is not a marriage—not even a common-law marriage—but rather that the child is an ‘outside’ child.” 

The Jamaican reggae artist, Linval Thompson, was likely to have brought the phrase to the US in 1981 with his song, Baby Mother.

However, the term didn’t fully take off in the US until the mid-90s, when it was adopted by R&B artists.

When Outkast’s song, Ms. Jackson became a chart-topper in 2000, the term took off and gained momentum, becoming the descriptor for an un-wed man becoming a father.

Who is Lori Harvey?

Harvey was born in Memphis, Tennessee, and grew up in Atlanta and Chicago.

She is the stepdaughter of Family Feud host, Steve Harvey and the daughter of Steve Harvey’s third wife, Marjorie Bridges.

Her mom met Steve Harvey in 1990 and he reportedly adopted Harvey after he and her mother were married.

Harvey originally wanted to be a professional equestrian, but an injury left her unable to compete.

But at the young age of 13, Harvey discovered her affinity for beauty when her mom would prep for events.

“I’d sit, watch, and ask the makeup artist questions,” she told Vogue in 2018. “Then I’d go in my bathroom and try to recreate those looks.”

She eventually went on to model in her first fashion show in 2017 for Dolce & Gabbana’s couture runway.

In addition to modeling, Harvey has become an Instagram influencer with 4.1million followers.
