Kevin Hart has explained why his wife Eniko Parrish decided to stay with him after he cheated on her.

The Jumanji star, 40, who is expecting his second child with his wife, says she gave him another chance after he was unfaithful.

But there were conditions he had to live by.

Speaking on The School of Greatness podcast, he said: "She came to an amazing conclusion of, 'I like the fact that we have a family, that we have a household, and I like the fact that we now got a job to do to get better'.

"'That’s what you owe me. You owe me the get-better.' And she held me accountable. It wasn’t a walk in the park, but it was her understanding that we don’t let the outside world affect our inside, and I credit her for setting that tone."

Kevin, who already shares two-year-old son Kenzo with Eniko, praised his wife, calling her "the strongest person in the world".

The actor, who is also dad to daughter Heaven, 15, and son Hendrix, 12, from his previous marriage to Torrei Hart, cheated on Eniko with model Montia Sabbag during a trip to Las Vegas in 2017.

His sexual encounter was caught on video and later released in an alleged attempt to extort the star.

Montia publicly maintained that she wasn't the one who released the tape and said that she was as much of a victim as Kevin was.

She later sued Kevin, in September 2019, for $60 million, claiming that Hart and his friend JT Jackson set her up and hid a camera to record them together.

The lawsuit was later dismissed.

Earlier this month, Kevin and Eniko announced that they're expecting a little girl.

Kevin revealed the news on Mother's Day in a gushing social media post.

He shared a snap of himself with his three children and pregnant Eniko, who cradled her baby bump while wearing a pink sash with 'Baby Girl' printed on it.

Kevin wrote: "Happy Mother's Day to this beautiful woman & wife of mine. We love you @enikohart ....And we are thrilled about the arrival of our baby girl....Family of 6 WOOOOOOOOW!!!!

"God is unbelievable. We are blessed to have you in our lives. All I can say is thank you honey."
