Actress Jaclyn Smith always tried to treat her two children, Spencer-Margaret and Gaston, well. Despite her stardom, Jaclyn attempted to make her children feel as special as her mother made her feel. She constantly tried to keep her children out of the public eye as much as possible.

But despite her best efforts, her children caught the attention of the media, which often left her feeling that she betrayed them. Nonetheless, she kept a strong bond with her mother through daily phone calls.

A Dream Home Bought in 1991

In 1991, Jaclyn bought a six-bedroom, six-bath Georgian colonial mansion in the Holmby Hills of Los Angeles. She immediately dedicated her love for older houses to every room in her mansion. She said:

"It's a great family home with a lot of sunlight coming through the windows, and it's surrounded by a lot of land."

Inside the house, her nostalgic preferences are depicted in images of her family. The home also has a lot of comfortable-looking furniture. The actress loves the 18th Century and comfort, so she chose modern covers for her furniture that she can easily sink into.

Jaclyn redid every room in the house, even though the kitchen was the only room that needed renovation. She also loved the amenities offered by the property, including a tennis court for Gatson, a pool for Spencer-Margaret, and office space for both her and heart surgeon Dr. Brad Allen.

Jaclyn credits her mom for her meet-up with Brad.

The movie star said, "With the success of Charlie's Angels, I was finally able to buy my own home, but only what I could afford, a place that needed some fixing up." Her husband appreciated it when she swapped the fabric walls in the master bedroom for wallpaper. Brad felt like he was living in a hatbox.

Jaclyn became passionate about ensuring that her home was perfect for her and her family. She allowed her children to have bedrooms that reflected their tastes, even if they contradicted the style of the house.

Her preferences leaned towards elegance, and her home showcased floral accents, refurbished chairs, and intricately patterned floor tiles. Her entrance has a long spiral staircase. Her foyer has high ceilings, crown moldings on the walls and doors, and a giant vintage-looking center table.

Throughout the house, Jaclyn's love of roses is easy to see. The fireplace has a large mirror above it, and the mantle is covered in vases and other antiques. She also loves colorful furniture, with several armchairs featuring rose patterns or bird prints on them.

In her formal dining room, a space she enjoys hosting guests, you'll find a crystal chandelier suspended above a formal wooden table and chairs. The dining room wallpaper is an elegant emerald green with floral accents.

The mansion also has large columns in certain parts, and the dining room floor has a chequered pattern. The open space concept in the living areas creates lots of space for entertaining guests.

The mansion also has a large garden showing Jaclyn's love for flowers. She posted an image in August 2021 showcasing some of her roses. Her garden features a regal design touches like a spherical statue.

Jaclyn reflected that she kept her children's bedrooms the same, even long after they moved out. She resisted the desire to redecorate so that her kids could know they had a home to come to.

She had a dollhouse installed for her granddaughter in the garden to enjoy tea parties with her. The dollhouse is white with emerald green accents. It also has a set of thicker chairs and a table for tea parties.

Finding Love with Dr. Brad Allen

Jaclyn married her current husband, Brad, marking her fourth marriage. Previously, she was wed to actor Roger Davis from 1968 to 1975, and later, she tied the knot with fellow actor Dennis Cole, a marriage that lasted from 1978 until 1981.

Jaclyn credits her mom for her meet-up with Brad. She met Brad when her dad was in the hospital for her heart surgery, and her husband turned out to be a surgeon. Jaclyn's mother didn't want her to walk to the parking lot by herself, so Brad offered to walk her every night she visited her dad in the hospital.

Seven years after meeting, they married in Los Angeles in 1997. Looking back on her marriage in 2017, the actress said she had a wonderful time because she and her husband share the same values, upbringing, and spirituality. "we think the same," she added.

In 2018, when the two were celebrating 21 years in marriage, the actress said she was "still a lucky girl." The two have grown even closer through the years, bonding over their love for travel. They go to new places together and make memories. "I want this one to be my forever," Jaclyn proclaimed.

Jaclyn described her husband as kind and a man with a pure heart. Now, the thing that makes her happy isn't even her successful career in Hollywood but being near the people she loves. When she was diagnosed with cancer in 2002, which she conquered, it was her family and friends who helped her cope.

After overcoming her illness, the actress began enjoying life with her two kids and granddaughter. Today, Jaclyn loves spending time with her husband at their home. Much like the actress, Brad loves their Los Angeles mansion. She added that she felt warm and protected at home with Brad. Even when it is just her, her husband, and their dogs at home, Jaclyn still finds that the house feels full.

The actress's home is filled with reminders of the life she has led. Jaclyn disclosed that her office houses her scrapbooks, along with bound volumes containing all her "Charlie's Angels" scripts, as well as photos of friends she has made over the years. She finds the pictures sentimental and a reminder for her to keep everyone she loves in her prayers.

Jaclyn also reflected that even with all the renovating she did on her home, it was not the fabric and color that made her mansion a home. It was the presence of all the people she loved and cared about, who knew that they were always welcome.
