Actor and comedian Kevin Hart is planning a $161,000 baby shower with pregnant wife Eniko Parrish.

Kevin Hart and his pregnant wife Eniko Parrish are hosting a US$118,000 (NZ$161,000) baby shower in the middle of the comedian's sex tape scandal.

The US actor has been in the media in recent weeks due to allegations that he cheated on his 33-year-old wife with Montia Sabbag, who claims to have had an "intimate relationship" with the Ride Along star last month.

An intimate video of the pair emerged and sparked an extortion investigation by the FBI, but Sabbag has insisted she had nothing to do with the recording.

According to TMZ, which claims to have seen papers detailing the event, the venue will be decked out with leopard print and pictures of wild animals, while a family picture showing "a silhouette of pregnant Eniko" will take centre stage. 

There will also be an "Experience Bar" at the shower, where guests can dress up like tribal warriors and try out exotic foods. Prizes will be able to be won at a game show similar to The Price Is Right, with the whole event set to music from The Lion King

The baby shower is set to cost a staggering US$117,855 (NZ$161,092), with US$1500 (NZ$2050) of that going on a chimpanzee in a nappy. 

Hart recently came forward about a multimillion-dollar extortion attempt over the sex tape and issued an emotional video apology to Parrish and his children, claiming someone was trying to make a "financial gain" from his indiscretions.

Parrish has reportedly forgiven her husband for his infidelity.
