Fan-favorite Zachariah Smith started his journey on Season 21 of American Idol with probably the ever-best rendition of “Hurts So Good” by John Mellencamp. His energy and movement during the audition delight the judges, who swayed along with him in their seats. The Nashville Idol hopeful came on the stage as a grill cook at his family’s Bill’s Hamburgers and the judges gave him the golden ticket and the good news that he won’t be flipping burgers anymore. Even more fascinating fact about Zachariah is that he also happens to have a beautiful wife named Crysta Marie. To those of you who noticed, she even accompanied him during the audition.
So, in this writing called ‘Crysta Marie Bio’ lets us tell you all about her.
Meet Crysta Marie, American Idol Zachariah Smith’s Wife
Most lately, on 9 March 2023, Zachariah Smith took to his ‘Realzachariahsmith’ Facebook to thank his wife Crysta Marie for all her “hard work”. He called her the sweetest, most loving, caring, and compassionate lady he knows. To his “baby Crysta,” he also gushed about being beyond blessed to be able to call her his wife, with a couple of heart and kissed-face emojis added.
To Zachariah, Crysta is also that one person who takes all his stress and anxiety away. Often, we have seen Zachariah say things like “Seriously she has been so amazing and supportive of me”/ “My #1 Fan! My Beautiful wife! I love you” about her.
We don’t yet know when these two tied the knot. But, there is a wedding picture of the two on Zach’s Facebook and the date on it is 30 November 2022.
How Many Kids Does Crysta Marie Have?
Crysta Marie has three kids, two daughters, and a youngest son. And it appears the eldest is Crysta’s kid from a previous relationship. The baby daddy/ex-husband is Will Pate, who on his social media goes around as a “father” and a “full-time Christ follower” among other things.
The remaining two, Crysta seemingly shares with Zachariah. Yet, it also seems like Crysta, her now husband and her ex have found common ground to come together during parenting duties. That is maybe why, Crysta appeared on her ex/baby daddy’s social media posts until around 2016.
As for Zachariah, we have spotted him complaining to himself that he has not been giving enough credit to his “beauty” for handling his hectic schedule, running a restaurant, and managing to be the best mom to their 3 kiddos.
Also, about their daughters Timber and Adelyn, Zachariah was once writing “You girls make me a dad and for that, I love you even more!! I love you Timber and Adelyn!!❤️❤️❤️”.
