Relationship With Omari Hardwick

First Years & Miscarriage

Although neither Hardwick nor Pfautch have revealed details about their first meeting, it’s known they started their relationship around 2007.

Everything seemed to be going well for the couple and their happiness considerably increased when in March 2008, Jennifer became pregnant with Omari’s child.

However on 18 November that year, Jennifer attended a supposedly routine medical appointment where she was informed that her baby’s heartbeats had stopped: ‘My ears started ringing, the room started swirling,’ confessed Pfautch on an Instagram post.

By the time of the miscarriage Jennifer was on her seventh month of pregnancy. The unbelievable pain of losing her first child made her feel guilty, as she thought something was wrong with her: ‘So many thoughts bombarded my mind but none more heart-wrenching that I somehow failed, that my body somehow failed’.

After the sad incident, Jennifer spent several months in depression, and although many people tried to comfort her, the sadness of her loss wouldn’t go away. She also confessed on her Instagram account that she always remembers her stillborn child, regardless of how many years had passed by.

In 2013 the pair welcomed Nova, their oldest child and only daughter to date. Then in 2015 their son named Brave was born.

The family is very close and both Pfautch and Hardwick often share pics of their children on their social media. On an Instagram post of March 2020, she expressed her gratitude for her kids, despite the challenges she has to endure as a mother: ‘Grateful to these little two for their grace, patience love and humor as we all learn together how to do this life thing’.

Malicious Comments

Jennifer Pfautch and her husband have faced a backlash on social media for being an inter-racial couple. Omari however, doesn’t stay silent when faced by these kind of comments, and always defends his wife during these situations.

In 2014 a fan of his “Power” character Ghost left the following comment on an Instagram pic of him and Jennifer: ‘Love you ghost … you lost points for marrying white…but we still got you’. Hardwick was quick to answer the malicious comment, making sure he wouldn’t let anyone disrespect Pfautch: ‘i’d prefer you not to have me. You just lost all points with me. Good luck in life.’

This wasn’t the only time Hardwick has defended Jennifer in public. In 2018 a fan declared Hardwick apparently had wrongly reacted to her trying to take a picture with him in public.

However, in an interview with “The Breakfast Club” later that year, Hardwick declared the reason he had rejected taking a picture with said fan was because she had apparently ignored his family while talking to him: ‘Chill the f**k out! Just relax and acknowledge her (Pfautch) enough.

It can be half of a look! You’ve acknowledged that she’s a breathing entity,’ he said on the radio show.
