Just a few months after signing a one-year contract with the Miami Dolphins in March 2023, Braxton Berrios was seen partying with the TikTok star Alix Earle in the Hamptons. The two attended the Palm Tree Music Festival in Westhampton, and one of them also later took to social media to share several clips from their trip. Alix, in fact, also posted a clip of herself hugging and kissing a man on a bed. She did not name or identify him by name though. Amid all this going on, we are here to talk to you about a different topic, i.e., about Braxton’s father.
Meet Rico Berrios, Braxton Berrios’s Father
Braxton Berrios is not the only child of his father Rico Berrios. There is Austin Berrios also. He has been a regional sales manager at CoAdvantage since November 2019. He also studied at NC State University. Born in Raleigh, North Carolina, he was now based in Dallas, Texas. He reached the age of 29 in August 2022. As of 2023, one could give him a follow on IG @austin.berrios.919 (154 posts and 1,390 followers as of June 2023).
Austin also is a wide receiver. He has played football for two colleges: Noth Carolina College and East Carolina University. But, his collegiate career was hindered after he tore both ACLs.
Rico Berrios Wife
Braxton and Austin’s mother, Lee Berrios-Smothers, is Rico’s ex-wife now. We don’t yet know when the two of them got married and also when they parted ways. They are said to have divorced not long after their wedding.
Lee went to Campbell University, the same Rico went. She was a cheerleader back then and it was during that that she met and married Rico.
Be that as it may, Lee got married again on 7 June 2014 to Chad D Smothers of Raleigh, North Carolina. They have been together ever since. Chad has for very long been working as an Athletic Director at Knightdale High School. He also turned 54 years old in December 2022.
As for Rico’s ex-wife Lee, she mentioned working as a study activation manager at ICON. A Campbell University alum, she can be seen writing “Love God, my boys, husband, family, friends, and tennis!” on her Twitter @LSmothers78. On LinkedIn, she mentions being an experienced professional with a demonstrated history of working in the health care/legal industry.
“You never ask for anything Mom, and that’s why I plan on giving you everything ❤️,” Braxton wrote to his mom Lee once on Mother’s Day.
Anyway, like Lee, Rico also got married again. This time, his wife is Jessica Jackson Berrios, who on her IG @jessicaberrios quotes “It’s the little moments that make life big”. While on Facebook, she mentioned having studied Journalism at Southern Methodist University (Graduated in 2007) and about now living in Southlake, Texas. She was born in Atlanta, Georgia in January 1985. So, she reached the age of 38 in 2023.
The seen picture is of Rico and Jessica on their marriage anniversary on 19 September 2017. The couple has also been seen with their kids. Until January 2012, the couple had two boys: Jackson and Carson. Later, on 1 November 2014, Brooks Hamilton Berrios was born on 1 November 2014.
