For some, it just takes a moment to realize that their significant other stands right before them. But for others, like Josie Hart and her fiancee Blair Underwood, it takes over 4 decades to recognize the right one! This Josie Hart Bio explores the soon-to-be bride’s life.
Meet Josie Hart, Blair Underwood Partner
Josie Hart first met Blair Underwood before he even became an actor in the early 80s. The two remained friends ever since, married different people, and it was only after their divorces, they realized that they were perfect for each other.
So, in November 2022, the two got engaged and Blair share the good news on IG. “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,” he wrote.
Also, the actor mentioned his fiancee to be the “most amazing, brilliant, beautiful, hilarious, thought-provoking & insightful person [he] knows who continuously lives life out loud.”
The news about the pair’s engagement comes just 18 months after Blair split with his ex-wife Desiree DaCosta — who also played a big role in the actor’s success.
Blair and Desiree wedded in 1994 and went on to share three incredible children Paris, and Brielle. Sadly, the two ended their marriage 27 years later in May 2021.
Back when Blair was still with Desiree, he wanted to be his wife’s “rock, her protector.”
‘If she had a problem, I wanted to solve it. I thought that’s what was expected of me,’ he told the outlet,” he said at the time. But a vulnerable conversation with his spouse led him to learn his then-wife didn’t need him to fix her problems, rather she wanted him to listen when she vented.
Josie Hart Ex-Husband
Like her fiancee, Josie Hart is also a divorcee. She was married to Burgess Owens, the author of “WHY I STAND – From Freedom to Killing Fields of Socialism.”
Together, they share six kids and six grandchildren.
Their oldest is named Summur-Rayn Berrett.
They also have a daughter named Randii Foster.
According to their children, their parents raised them to be “leaders and examples.” It seems, Josie and her ex-husband held family home evenings and scripture studies each week. They traveled long distances to attend church meetings and activities and each child received a father’s priesthood blessing at the start of each school year.
Also, they attended early-morning seminary. Obviously, the Young Women’s camp was a high priority. But one of their children was pulled even off the soccer team because games were on Sunday.
Furthermore, they spent general conference weekend at the stake center and had a picnic in between sessions because it was too far to return
Talking more about Josie’s ex-husband, Burgess is the son of the late Clarence B. Owens (1926 – 2021). He was one of only two African American Republicans serving as a congressional representative in the U.S. Congress.
Burgess also is a former NFL player who played for the New York Jets, and then the Oakland Raiders. In 1981, he then earned a Super Bowl ring in Super Bowl XV playing free safety for the Raiders, making six tackles. So, after he retired in 1989, he started working in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as an area sales manager for WordPerfect and started writing books.
Before Burgess knew it, he was giving motivational speeches and contributing to the Fox News channel. In 2020, he was then finally elected to represent Utah’s 4th Congressional District in the 117th Congress and he took his oath on January 13, 2021.
Back in 1980, Burgess was also inducted into the University of Miami Sports Hall Of Fame. Then, in his first year in the NFL, he was selected as the Jets Rookie of the Year and chosen for the NFL’s All-Rookie team. There, he led the Jets’ defense in interceptions for 5 of 7 years and was selected as the team Defensive Captain for three seasons.
