Stephen A. Smith looks relaxed on Barbados beach with a mystery woman
ESPN analyst Stephen A. Smith looked relaxed during his vacation as he lay on the beach in Barbados with a mystery female companion. The First Take host, 55, enjoyed some well-deserved downtime on the Caribbean island and dipped into the crystal-clear sea to cool off after lounging with his glamorous friend. His unnamed woman friend, wearing a black and leopard-print bikini with orange sandals, was seen bringing Smith drinks while the pair basked in the warm Caribbean sunshine. Dad-of-two Smith opted for a laid-back brown bathing suit and wore a Nike Jordan baseball cap backward while cooling off in the Bajan blue water. He paired the beach look with a pair of stylish sunglasses.

Smith Show, and also published his first memoir, “Straight Shooter,” in January 2023. Smith was born in the Bronx, New York City, and was the youngest of six children to Caribbean immigrants. He won a basketball scholarship to attend Winston-Salem State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in mass communication.
Smith realized his true calling when he wrote a newspaper column for his college arguing for the retirement of his own Hall of Fame coach, Clarence Gaines. From there, he started working as a journalist for the Winston-Salem Journal, before moving on to the Greensboro News and Record. He then started working for The Philadelphia Inquirer in 1994, where he started reporting on the NBA as a sports reporter.
