Kenny Smith, the former professional basketball player, shares a somewhat relatable story with Aviva Drescher.
Both of them are not linked with each other personally, but their personal life is somewhat the same. Aviva, who was first divorced, later married another man and found her life partner. Likewise, Kenny also seems to have moved on for good. But, is she the one?
Kenny Smith Relationship
Kenny married Gwendolyn Osborne, a model, recording actress and actress famous for modeling on The Price is Right on 2 September 2006. The couple exchanged their vows at their mountain-top estate in Stevenson Ranch, California, in front of 250 of their close friends and family.
The couple first met at a charity event in 2004, and after two years of extensive dating, the couple got married and after about being married for about a decade, there is not a single chance of divorce as they are still on a strong bond.
On 26 March 2008, the couple welcomed their first child together; a baby boy and named him Malloy Adrian Smith. Later, on 29 September 2012, the couples welcomed their second child; a daughter named London Olivia.

The couples parented five kids altogether. That is because Kenny Smith and his wife Gwendolyn both have children from their previous relationships.

Kenny Smith has a son, KJ Smith, and a daughter Kayla Brianna from his previous marriage to Dawn Reavis, while Gwendolyn has a daughter named Monique from her ex-boyfriend . All three of them are now grownups. Kenny, however, hasn't revealed when and why he divorced Dawn.
Divorced Again, Splitting In Good Terms
It was all rumors until Gwendolyn Osborne filed for divorce with Kenny “The Jet” Smith in Los Angeles. The split came out of nowhere and everyone got surprised. Kenny had cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split.
Gwendolyn gunned for primary legal and physical custody of the couple’s two children: Malloy and London. And add to that, she demanded spousal support from Kenny. Spousal support essentially is alimony, financial assistance to help the recipient achieve financial independence.
Although the split, Kenny and Gwendolyn have gone public to say that they have ended their 12 years of marriage in good terms. They have decided to co-parent their children.
More On Kenny's Children
Now let’s talk about their grown-up kids and let’s start with Kenny Smith Jr’s. He has already turned 20 and was wished by his mother through her Twitter account.
In his case, the proverb can be used ‘like father like son’ as Kenny’s son Kenny Smith Jr (KJ) played for Thousand Oaks, CA as a point guard and is already on his way to becoming a pro basketball in near future.
