Food Network’s new show Raid the Fridge brought in the limelight for its judge Jamika Pessoa, but she wasn’t the only one viewers were intrigued about. Lately, a lot of fans have been asking questions about her husband Darcell Smith; especially what’s his job, age, and IG.
Thus, here we are with this Darcell Smith Bio exploring all his detail.
Meet Darcell Smith, Jamika Pessoa Husband
Darcell Smith and Jamika Pessoa first met each other back in the ’90s. But they didn’t immediately connect. It took a decade and a New Year’s Eve party for the couple to fall for each other.
Reportedly, Darcell claimed that they stayed in a relationship since July 4, 2007.
Fast forward to 2010, the pair then got married on the island of Barbados. And following their beach ceremony, the love birds drove to Almond Beach Village Resort in Barbados for their honeymoon.
“My wedding day was magical,” Jamika recalled the day.
As of 2021, the pair were still together and resided in Atlanta with their two kids.
Their eldest, Sasha turned 5 in September 2021, and she had already graduated pre-school. “Our babies aren’t babies anymore. If I’m this emotional for Sasha’s preschool graduation, I know I’m going to be a wreck when she graduates high school,” Jamika wrote over IG on her daughter’s graduation day.
Also, Sasha already has an IG @sashajsmith with over 130 followers. “I am a fun-loving kid who enjoys smiling for the camera!” her bio wrote.
According to Jamika, her husband is a very selfless person, which was also one of the many reasons she married him. But most importantly, his work ethic and responsibility was the thing that charmed the celebrity chef.
And not to mention, Darcell is a great dad. He was often spotted making time for his kids, and not just being there, he was literary involved with any activities his daughter did. No wonder the kids loved him.
On Father’s day 2021, Sasha made a cake all by herself for “the best daddy she ever had.”
