Jasmin Page Lawrence, daughter of Martin Lawrence, shows where she inherited her good looks from, sharing a photo of her mom, Patricia Smith on her 50th birthday. Patricia has ended her 20-year marriage to Emmitt Smith.
If your mom is a former beauty queen, chances are you’ll hit the beauty lottery. That’s exactly what Jasmin Page Lawrence proved when she shared a snap of her mom, Patricia Smith, to wish her a happy 50th birthday.
The former Miss Virginia looks exquisite wearing a white tank top and hoop earrings. Her honey blonde locks cascade down her shoulders, and her makeup is flawless with an understated nude lip.
As part of her tribute, Jasmin thanks Patricia for being her support system and someone she aspires to be. She further writes that Patricia’s physical beauty is only surpassed by her beautiful heart.
She ends on a sweet note, taking pride in being her daughter and wishing her good health and happiness. Even Jasmin is in awe of Patricia’s beauty, as she begins her caption with:
“Happy 50th birthday mom. First off, 50?! C’mon now, you’re not playing fair.
Lawrence and Patricia, who holds a journalism degree from James Madison University, tied the knot in 1995 and welcomed Jasmin that same year. "The Bad Boys" star and Patricia only made it two years, filing for divorce in 1997.
Fast forward to 2010, and Lawrence had wed Shamicka Gibbs, with whom he had two more girls - Amara Trinity and Iyanna Faith Lawrence.
In 2020, he reunited with fellow actor Will Smith for the third installment, "Bad Boys For Life."
Jasmin enjoys a very strong bond with her comedian father, having gushed over him on Father's Day. She praised his work ethic, sense of humor, and the manner in which he made all three of his daughters feel treasured.
Lawrence returned the favor through his own appreciation post on International Daughters Day. In his caption, he wrote that his daughters weren't the only ones taking away life lessons from him, saying:
"Having daughters has taught me so much and I’m forever grateful for the laughs, the unconditional love, and the bond we’ll always have."
Meanwhile, on August 1, Patricia and her NFL professional husband, Emmitt Smith announced their marriage was coming to an end after 20 years. In a joint statement, they stressed prioritizing their children's needs above all else and pledged to remain friends.
The pair had children together throughout their marriage, including Emmitt Jr. (born March 2002), Skylar, (October 2003), and Elijah (September 2010). Emmitt already had a daughter, Rheagan, from a previous relationship.
Lawrence has built a stellar career over the years, having previously starred in "Big Momma's House" and "Bad Boys" I and II. In 2020, he reunited with fellow actor Will Smith for the third installment, "Bad Boys For Life."
Meanwhile, his baby girl, Jasmin, is using the good looks courtesy of Patricia, by modeling. She also holds a degree from Duke University and maintains a good friendship with Will Smith's eldest child, Trey.
