|Real Name:||Sophia Milan Hardison|
|Birthday:||September 27, 1996|
|Occupation:||American Celebrity Child, Daughter of Kadeem Hardison and Chante Moore|
Sophia Hardison was born as Sophia Milan Hardison. She is the daughter of Kadeem Hardison and Chante Moore, thus considered a celebrity child without a career of her own.
Sophia is still searching for herself and is trying to get out of the shadow of her parents. Being a celebrity child is not simple. Usually, the popularity of the parents overshadows the personal career of the child. It is expected from the child to have the same success as the parents.
Sophia Hardison has still not decided what she wants to do with herself. She likes both singing and acting and sees potential in following her parent’s footsteps one day. She is still very young though and is very attractive if you look at her pictures. Sophia loves to take selfies, and it is evident that she’s quite the looker and a fashionista, something she must have learned from her grandmother. There is no doubt that she inherited the good looks from her parents and that she will go on to become even more beautiful. However, Hardison now focuses on her education, before starting anything in the show business.
Income and Net Worth
For now, she does not have a salary to her name and her net worth is very low and not publicly known. On the other hand, her father Kadeem Hardison, the son of Donald McFadden and Bethann Hardison, is worth $2 million as of this year, which enables him to raise his daughter in a luxurious and appropriate way. He made his fortune from directing and acting.
Sophia’s mom, Chante Moore, has a staggering fortune of $1.5 million. She amassed this amount by her multiple works. She earned a lot from her singing career and had extra incomes from other contracts, endorsements, live performances, etc. In addition, her songs and albums give her good earnings. She certainly lives a lavish life and enjoys her million worth of fortune.
As a celebrity kid, Sophia is now living a luxurious lifestyle in the property of her parents in San Francisco, California, together with her brother Kenny Lattimore, Jr.
Sophia Hardison is a celebrity child who is known as the only child of Kadeem Hardison and Chante Moore. She was born on 27 September 1996, in New York City, New York. Her grandparents are Bethann Hardison, Virginia Moore, Larry Moore, and Donald McFadden. She has one-half brother, Kenny Lattimore Jr., from her mother’s marriage to Kenny Latimore.
Kadeem and Chante got Sophia before getting married. They married in 1997, a year after Sophia was born and were married for three years before divorcing in 2000. They tied the knot on November 17, 1997, in a private ceremony and their marriage became public only when they got divorced. Both parents raised their daughter co-parenting, stating that they are good friends and doing what’s best for their daughter. Even though their marriage broke apart, they were and still are involved equally in the life of their daughter. She is getting the attention and love she deserves from both of them and does not lack anything in her life. They are protective and try to shield their daughter from the public as best as possible.
Her father, Kadeem Hardison, is a popular actor and director. He started his career in 1981 at the age of 16 in an ABC Afterschool Special. He is most famous for his main role in the NBC drama, A Different World, a spin-off of “The Cosby Show,” for which he received the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series. He also had notable appearances in the movies “White Men Can’t Jump” and “Made of Honor.”
Her mother, Chante Moore also had a lustrous career herself. She is an actress, a singer and a songwriter, TV personality, and author. She mainly performs jazz and R&B. Moore debuted her studio album “Precious” in 1992, and two years later released her second album “A Love Supreme” in 1994. In 1999, she released her third album, “This Moment Is Mine”. Later on, in 2013, she released the album “Moore Is More”, along with a new record deal with Shanachie Entertainment. Her other works include “The Rise of the Phoenix”, “Christmas Back to You” (2017), and recently, she premiered her new single, “One Love” with Lewis Sky. She won the NAACP Image Award and American Music Award and got nominations for numerous awards including, Grammy Award, Soul Train Award, and MCP Music Award.
As mentioned, Sophia Hardison is the daughter of actor Kadeem Hardison, 54, and singer/songwriter Chante Moore, 53. Some would say that the real reason for them getting married in the first place was that they had a child together since Sophia was born about a year before her parents got married.
Her parents were reportedly together for nearly three years. According to online tabloids, the exact reason behind their separation was Kadeem’s extramarital love affair during the period while they were together. Chante found happiness with Kenny Latimore, a fellow singer, while Kadeem never remarried. Chante and Kenny exchanged vows in Jamaica on New Year’s Day January 1, 2002, at a private ceremony. In this marriage, Chante gave birth to a son Kenny, Jr., in 2003, who is also a singer. The couple divorced nine years later in 2011, due to irreconcilable differences.
Even though Chante and Kadeem got divorced many years ago, they remain friends. Speaking to Madamenoire in 2013, Chante Moore explained one of the most surprising things, that is the true friendship between the ex-spouses even after the divorce. They are still in amicable terms and co-parents their daughter Sophia together. She revealed that they fell in love very quickly and became friends even quicker. He was capable of making her bend over and hold her stomach in laughter. She also pointed out that she considers him a member of her family. She can count on him for anything. “I love him. I’m not in love, but love him.” According to Chanté’s statement, the quality time Kadeem, Sophia, and she spend together was very special. She added that Hardison thanked her for the kind of friendship that they shared.
There are many accounts of Sophia Hardison showing her pictures, but neither one of them is legible. She is very much protected by her parents and she obviously values her privacy as well. So, might find pictures of her on Twitter or Instagram, at least the private ones that she made.
For her 22nd birthday, Chanté took to Instagram to post a photo of Sophia showing her resemblance to Kadeem. With the photo, Chanté wished her “favorite daughter” a happy birthday, adding that Sophia blessed and changed her life for good.
“I love you to the moon & back again, flesh of my flesh… bone of my bone… ‘My Phia’ … a million precious moments, smiles, embraces, laughter & lessons….& there’s More to come! You are a thriving & unique, powerful force to be reckoned with! [sic],” wrote Chanté.
She posted two photos of her daughter, one of her now, slightly smiling at the camera while rocking her beautiful curls let loose over her shoulders and a second one, of her as a baby laying on her crib.
Now, the 24-year-old Sophia does not seem to be dating anyone. She has never disclosed any details of her love life to the public. However, on 26th December 2015, Sophia posted a picture with a guy on her Instagram account wishing Merry Christmas. She is a single lady officially, and she cherishes her singularity. In addition, she focuses on her education before starting a new relationship with her boyfriend or lover. The only relationship she might have is with her cat named Natsu that keeps her company in her bedroom. She spends a good time with her parents and her brother Kenny Jr., who are very supportive and post lovely photos on her Instagram account with them.
