Early life

Childhood photo of Karli Harvey Raymond

Karli Harvey was born on August 20, 1982. As of 2023, she is 40 years old.

Since she was born on August 20, her sun sign is Leo. As bold as personalities Leo is, Karli must love herself and celebrate living every day. She is the ultimate femme fatale-style lady who loves her twin sister’s company and enjoys a settled life.

It is said that Leo is a true leader and passionate lover, a little non-confronting and introverted but loyal and commanding. They make mistakes and learn from them; they are the ones who believe in taking risks and fighting for their freedom and dignity.

Be it her red carpet look –silk golden single strap mermaid gown or a crunch folder jeans with pencil heels and orange flared overcoat, Karli looks perfect everywhere. Her maternity pictures are a big hit, and so are her wedding pics on the internet.

Karli fits more into dark hue colors. She has chosen deep-cut neck jumpsuits, cool tropical and floater hats, and a short hairstyle in her attire lately.

Family of Karli Harvey

Karli Harvey is a creative director at Steve Harvey Products Radio Network in Atlanta, Georgia. She is of a beautiful Afro-American origin, born to Steve Harvey and Marcia Harvey after they tied a nuptial bond in 1980.

Steve Harvey (father)

Broderick Stephen Harvey (commonly known as Steve Harvey) is a famous comedian, host, presenter, broadcaster, and author. He started his career by hosting Showtime at the Apollo in the early 1980s and The Steve Harvey show on The WB.

Karli’s grandparents were originally from Welch, West Virginia. Jesse Harvey and Eloise Vera were coal miners. They both were Broderick Crawford fans, the star cast of a television series called “Highway Patrol,” so much so that they named their kid after him.

The family moved to Cleveland, Ohio, where Steve started his struggle as an artist. After he got well-established, his place was renamed Steve Harvey Way. Steve graduated in 1974 from Glenville High School and went to Kent State University and West Virginia University.

As a dad, Steve has shown great inspiration to Karley as he is a man of his own. He worked multiple jobs hard before getting his first shot at a stand-up comedy show at the Hilarities Comedy Club of Cleveland, Ohio.

Karley was lucky to be born a celebrity kid, thanks to her father’s hard work. He once was so broke and homeless that he had to sleep in his Ford for three years before his career was finally recognized and appraised outside of the African-American community.

Marcia Harvey was born on January 24th, 1955, in Cleveland, Ohio, USA. She has a tall and robust body with features that make Marcia look appealing.

Marcia has a Bachelor’s in Science degree in Chemistry and has worked in streams like Clinical Research, Quality Assurance, and Forensic Science. 

Marcia is renowned as the American stand-up comedian Steve Harvey’s first wife. She was also Steve Harvey’s first love. The couple got married in 1980.

Marcia filed for divorce after Steve was involved in extramarital affairs. He had also left his stable job to pursue a career as a comedian.

After the divorce, Marcia took custody of her kids- Karli, Brandi, and Broderick Jr.

After divorcing Steve Harvey, Marcia found love again and married a man named Larry Greene. Both of them happily live in Cleveland Heights in, Ohio, USA.

Brandi Harvey (twin)

Karli was not born alone in this world; she had her twin sister Brandi Harvey beside her since their birth. It’s pretty funny how some media state Karli as the older one, whereas others say it was Brandi. In an interview, the sisters confirmed Karli is the smallest among the two.

They welcomed their brother Broderick Harvey Jr on April 29, 1991. Soon after his birth, their parents separated. It must have been hard for 12 years old to go through their parent’s divorce, but together, the three kids made it to the end well. The two sisters have been together in each other’s highs and lows since then.

Broderick Harvey Jr

Broderick Harvey Jr. is a creative guy living in Los Angeles, California, with his father. He runs a site called need money, not friends, where clothes and accessories are available. He is seen with his father for work and is also involved in the Harvey Charity Foundation.

other siblings

After his divorce from Marcia, Steve married Mary Lee Harvey and had a son in 1997 named Wynton Harvey. This marriage also failed, and Steve married for the third time to gorgeous Marjorie Harvey in 2007.

Marjorie had three children, Lori, Morgan, and Jason, whom Steve raised as his own. Hence Karli has four half-siblings.

Benjamin Raymond (husband)

Karli met the love of her life, Benjamin Raymond, in mid-June 2012. It is said to be love at first sight; however, the Harvey sisters are kind of a secret to the media to date as introverted. The couple fell in love and got engaged in 2014. They got married a year later.

Benjamin (Known as Ben) is an author, entrepreneur, and life coach by profession. He is the proud owner of an insurance company and has made appearances on Steve Harvey’s talk show. He is a state-level basketball player and owner of two degrees.

Ben spent his childhood as a fatherless son, so he founded a non-profit organization for children who have a single mother as a parent.

The fall of 2015 brought her sweetness of marital vows, which they exchanged in front of their friends and family. Karli got married in September.

The marriage ceremony was a telecast of Steve Harvey’s daily talk show. The long white ball gown embroidered at the net ends looked stunning on Karli, while Raymond looked fancy in a black tuxedo.

Benjamin Troy Raymond (Karli Harvey Child)

Karli and Ben gave birth to their first child on June 16, 2016 –a son called Benjamin Troy Raymond. Their married life is running fantastic, and the couple frequently appears in the media as they took part in the Black love Summit documentary series in July 2019.

Karli Harvey Career

The only part with showbiz, fame, and highlight in these twins’ lives is their father. These days Karli has appeared in her father’s talk show, and so has her sister. They seem to be at peace and have good relations with their father, but things were not the same in the past.

Steve had abandoned his daughters, too, when he left their mother. It seems like he had to take a fair chance in his career, which is why he left his family unattended. It must have been hard to reconcile with a father who showed his back on them.

Karli and her sister, however, did not break to give in. They had each other’s back and grew up fine. They reconciled with their father years later, and Steve walked his daughter Karli down the aisle. It was a surreal moment in their lives. Their quote is famous:

“Dad, we didn’t understand why you left us, but we know now you had to go. You didn’t just belong to us. You belonged to the world.”

Karli Harvey net worth

Karli Harvey has a net worth of approximately USD 20 million.
