The actor who excels in legal dramas, Jimmy Smits, got married to Barbara Smits in 1980. They spent seven years together, where they were blessed with two children, a daughter named Tania Smits and a son named Joaquin Smits. After the divorce in 1987, the couple co-parented their children. Jimmy Smits got chummy with his partner Wanda De Jesus while Barbara Smits remained single and focused more on her family. However, she left this world on April 16, 2010, after the complications from pneumonia.
For now, let’s know more about Jimmy Smits’ children, Joaquin Smits And Taina Smits.
Jimmy Smits’ son Joaquin Smits, was born in 1983. He is an actor who starred in movies like Game Time, Club Life, and Alexander Reese. Apart from being an actor, Kino Smits (short for Joaquin) is a VIP Host at Marquee Nightclub & Avenue Night Club and has been working there for around seven years. Joaquin is a very professional person and seems to work very hard on his career.
Joaquin’s father, Jimmy Smits, said in an interview with People back in days that the way Joaquin walks or facial gestures that he makes astounded him. Even after the split of Joaquin’s parents, father Jimmy, and mother Barbara, he spent a lot of time with his dad. Just standing a few inches lower than his father only at the age of fifteen-years-old, he played for his Manhattan private school’s basketball team as a forward. And father Jimmy would always compliment on how his son Joaquin is better than him in basketball.
Being the son of one of the talented actors in Hollywood, Joaquin has inherited his father’s height and looks as well. We hope that Joaquin is still close with his father and spends time with him. Also, no other private information about Joaquin has been revealed yet as he lives a very low profile life.
Tania Smits is a 1973 born theatre writer, director, and teacher at Glasgow Middle School in Fairfax County. She is the firstborn of the talented actor, Jimmy Smits, and Barbara Smits, who worked at Cornell Cooperative Extension-New York City (CCE-NYC) for 29 years. Like her father, Tania made a career out of her passion for acting. She trains many kids on the delivery of dialogues and using numerous facial expressions in her theatre classes and shares snaps of her student’s achievements as well.
Jimmy Smits’ daughter Tania Smits is already settled with the love of her life, Bo Beasley and has children as well. She seems to be loving her work and living a great life with her family. As she seems pretty public about her life, Jimmy Smits’ daughter Tania Smits-Beasley is pretty active on social platforms like Instagram and Twitter.
