Martin Lawrence is a talented actor and comedian who has been involved intimately with different women in his lifetime. One of his first lovers who eventually became his wife is Patricia “Pat” Smith.
Pat is popularly known as a reality TV star and entrepreneur amongst other successful titles. Offline and online, the former Miss Virginia is not as famous as her ex-husband, but she has managed to constantly keep netizens talking.
Last year, the news of her divorce from her second husband and former NFL player, Emmitt Smith, set social media and several outlets ablaze. Pat and her ex-husband had celebrated their 20th marriage anniversary just a few months before the shocking revelation.
The former lovebirds updated their fans with news about their marriage via a joint statement posted on Pat’s Instagram account. In the post, the duo made it known that they would move forward into the next phase with love and compassion for each other.
They were also ready to work together as friends and co-parents in the best interests of their children, community, businesses, and their family. While Pat was married to Emmitt Sr., they welcomed three children — Emmitt Smith Jr., Skylar Smith, and Elijah Smith.
Upon their marriage, Pat also became a stepmother to Emmitt Sr.’s daughter, Rheagen, from his previous relationship. Apart from her four kids with the former football player, Pat is also a mom to her daughter, Jasmine Lawrence, whom she shares with Martin.
Pat and Martin welcomed their first child and daughter, Jasmine, in 1996. Like her star father, the young star has a keen interest in show business. She has amassed commendable fame and fortune as an upcoming actress.
In 2020, she starred alongside her comedian father as well as Hollywood icon Will Smith in the classic movie “Bad Boys For Life.” Jasmine also made an appearance in the 2012 sitcom “Family Time.”
Above all, she is an Instagram maven with over a hundred thousand followers. Jasmine loves to share lovely pictures of herself and her family celebrating special occasions and having fun.
On Pat’s birthday in 2019, the young actress celebrated the special occasion in grand style. She shared a series of photos that captured lovely moments she shared with her beautiful mom. The snaps were accompanied with a caption that read:
“Happy birthday to my QUEEN! Mama, you are my rock and my heart. I love you more than words can express ❤✨.”
In another old post, Jasmine posted a picture of herself and her entire family inside a pool. They were all clad in swimming outfits, and they struck goofy but endearing poses. In the caption, she noted that she was enjoying spring break with her family.
Besides her family, Jasmine also loves letting her fans in on her love life. On July 10, the beautiful lady officially revealed that she was romantically involved with Eddie Murphy’s son, Eric Murphy.
She celebrated his 32nd birthday with a heartwarming picture alongside a beautiful tribute on her Instagram page. Jasmine revealed she was blessed to know Eric and have him by her side. Finally, she hoped for more beautiful memories, noting that she loved her man.
Pat was filled with excitement upon her son’s graduation and showed it off on Instagram.
Rheagen was born to her dad, Emmitt Smith Sr., and mom, Hope Wilson, on November 2, 1998. She may not be as popular as her sisters, but the black beauty is as talented as her star father.
Apart from Emmitt Sr.’s good looks, the young lady also inherited her father’s love for sports. Rheagen is an upcoming soccer player, and in 2017, she signed with Texas A&M University’s soccer team.
Emmitt Sr. expressed his excitement for his daughter, stating that she had worked extremely hard for it despite all the challenging situations. Rheagen did her best for the team by scoring an impressive number of goals.
In May, she finally graduated from Texas A&M University, and her proud stepmom made sure to flaunt her daughter’s achievements on Instagram.
Pat posted a picture of Rheagen in her graduation gown striking a gorgeous pose amongst her family members. Captioning the post, the mother of five wrote:
“We were all smiles, love, and cheers today for @rheagen_!!! Our @tamu graduate!!!”
EMMITT SMITH JR.
Pat and Emmitt welcomed their first son and child on the latter’s 33rd birthday on May 15, 2002. Emmitt Jr. has grown into a talented young man with an incredible love for sports — a trait he inherited from his father.
Emmitt Jr. is a football player, and he has been ranked as No. 144 overall by 247sports and has also been listed as the No. 3 all-purpose back in America. He is also currently a student at Stanford University, where he plays football.
Emmitt Jr. immediately enrolled at Stanford after he graduated from high school last year. Pat was filled with excitement upon her son’s graduation and showed it off on Instagram with lovely graduation pictures. She also showed him off on National son’s day with her younger son, Elijah.
Skylar is Pat and Emmitt Sr.’s second child. She was born to her parents on October 15, 2003, and according to her Instagram bio, she is a fashion model. The young model is greatly loved by her family and is often spotted in family pictures.
ELIJAH ALEXANDER SMITH
Elijah is the youngest of Pat and Emmitt Sr.’s children. He was born on September 22, 2010, weighing six pounds and six ounces. Little Elijah is gradually growing into a teenager.
Last year, he reached the age of 10, and Pat expressed her gratitude and excitement in an Instagram post. She shared pictures of her son donning a lovely outfit. In the caption, she described Elijah as a source of joy, love, excitement, and light.
Above all, Elijah loves spending quality time with his parents. A Facebook post captured a moment when the young man gave a command to start engines at the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Texas Motor speedway.
The video showed the strong bond the father and son shared, and fans couldn’t help but appreciate their relationship.
