Stephen A Smith’s daughter did not pass away. However, he did lose his mother, Janet Smith, in June 2017.
Smith is the father of two daughters, Samantha and Nyla, and they are both healthy. They do not appear out in public much often and are content with being kept away from the prying eyes of the media.
Smith, a hard-working man, doesn’t seem to be the kind to wallow in what he may consider emotional foolishness. His girls, though, manage to get past his stern façade.
When Smith’s mother, Janet Smith, passed away due to cancer, he was distraught. The sports pundit countered that his children have given him a new lease on life after her passing and that he is a dedicated family man and father who sets the rules, such as forbidding his daughters from viewing “First Take” without his consent.
The analyst holds the opinion that today’s kids aren’t disciplined enough. However, this belief might not hold given that his two pre-teen daughters, Samantha and Nyla, have him wrapped around their little fingers.
He is the first to acknowledge that his girls have a propensity for undermining his authority. Samantha and Nyla have a way of spinning that idea on its head because they know how much of a control freak he is.
The sports analyst claimed they have a way of softening his sharp edges. According to him, all fathers feel helpless regarding their daughters. When it comes to his daughters, the family man decides to set his ego aside. He understands that he has enough conflict at work and doesn’t need more now.
