New York Daily News - - FRONT PAGE - BY NI­COLE HENSLEY

KEVIN HART’S mar­riage just fell on hard times.

The ac­tor ap­pears to ad­mit to cheat­ing on his preg­nant wife in an Instagram post Satur­day night, ex­plain­ing that some­one had tar­geted him for “fi­nan­cial gain” be­cause of his mis­takes.

“I said I’d rather fess up to my mis­takes,” Hart said.

TMZ re­ports the “Get Hard” ac­tor was caught in an ex­tor­tion at­tempt for a “sex­u­ally sug­ges­tive” video with an­other woman, who was not im­me­di­ately iden­ti­fied.

The 38-year-old comic con­fessed to a “bad er­ror of judge­ment” in the Instagram video and apol­o­gized to his wife, Eniko Par­rish, and his two chil­dren from a pre­vi­ous mar­riage.

“It’s a s----y mo­ment where you know you’re wrong. There’s no ex­cuses for your be­hav­ior,” Hart said.

Hart had pre­vi­ously in­di­rectly de­nied ac­cu­sa­tions that he cheated on Par­rish in July, a month shy of their first wed­ding an­niver­sary. He was pic­tured in a ve­hi­cle with a mys­tery woman.

“#LiveLoveLaught... SMDH (Shak­ing My Damn Head),” Hart wrote on Instagram.

Hart’s wife is about 31 weeks preg­nant, ac­cord­ing to an Instagram post she shared Fri­day.

On Wed­nes­day, Par­rish shared a photo of hubby Hart nuz­zling against her preg­nant belly.

Hart, a Philadel­phia na­tive, has two chil­dren with ex-wife Tor­rei Hart.

TMZ re­ports that a woman has been de­mand­ing hush money af­ter film­ing a “sex­u­ally sug­ges­tive” video with Hart, not­ing that the footage was not a sex tape.

Hart’s reps did not im­me­di­ately re­spond to a re­quest for com­ment but told the celebri­tynews site that law en­force­ment is in­volved with the failed ex­tor­tion at­tempt.

Hart, who strug­gled early in his ca­reer as a standup, is now one of the high­est-paid co­me­di­ans in Hol­ly­wood and boasts a net worth of $120 mil­lion af­ter roles in “The Se­cret Life of Pets” and “Ride Along 2.”

Be­tween June 2015 and June 2016, he earned $87.5 mil­lion — good for sixth place on Forbes’ rich­est-celebri­ties list.

Hart also co-stars in the “Ju­manji” re­make due out in De­cem­ber.
