We get that fathers are overprotective of their children, especially their daughters.

But the talk show and game show host, according to ESSENCE, revealed the news to the “Steve Harvey” talk show audience when conversing with guests Garcelle Beauvais, Ta’Rhonda Jones, Kim Gravel and Tracey Edmonds.

During the segment, they were talking about dating experiences with men their families were not fond of.

That was when Harvey disclosed that he had his youngest stepdaughter, Lori’s, beau followed.

“She didn’t know,” he said. “She knows now. But when she found out she was upset.”

What you trippin’ for? I’m trying to help you,” he added. “You think he cute, I don’t. You find him attractive. The boy is just a boy to me.”

Hmm. It looks like we all know that no one messes with Steve’s girls.
