Stephen A. Smith hits the beach with mystery companion during Barbados getaway
2023/07/19

Stephen A. Smith is certainly enjoying his summer getaway.

The ESPN personality relaxed on vacation in Barbados, where he was photographed at the beach with a mystery woman.

Smith and the brunette were snapped closed together in the water before she appeared to lather him up with sunscreen on a lounge chair.

The sports broadcaster, 55, sported beige shorts and a Jordan Brand hat with sunglasses, while the woman wore a black bikini top and cheetah-print bottoms.

At one point, the pair had their earphones in while others at the resort lounged under umbrellas.

Smith and his female companion soaked up the sunshine at a luxe beachfront resort in the Caribbean.

Smith, who tends to keep his personal life private, has never been married.

The "First Take" host has two teenage daughters and it is unclear who the mother of his children is. 

In a 2019 profile, Smith told GQ he was engaged once, but "it didn't work out. "

When asked why things went south, he told the outlet it's none of their damn business — a frequent line he uses on television and with his loved ones.

Smith's daughters were aged 11 and 10 at the time he spoke to GQ.

Earlier this month, Smith said on his podcast that he wants to get married someday.

"Now contrary to what you may believe, although I'm 55 and a father of two, I've never been married," Smith said on his self-titled show. "I am not against marriage at all. In fact, I hope to be married someday. I hope to walk down that aisle.

"I hope to be standing there on the altar and wait for my beautiful bride to come sauntering down the aisle. I want to see that."

Smith added that he would prioritize the honeymoon more than the actual cost of the wedding.

The outspoken ESPN personality rakes in $12 million per year, sources told The Post's Andrew Marchand.

As The Post previously reported, Smith's personal salary is $8 million a year, but he also has a $4 million-per-year production contract.
