Smiley, 45 is already a father of two boys named Grayson and Gavin from his previous relationships. The couple had named their daughter Skylar Gray in tribute to Smile’s son Grayson who is still fighting a battle with brain cancer. in February, the couple revealed the sex of the baby by pulling on their cannons to reveal clouds of pink smoke and confetti back. It was followed by an extravagant baby shower in May.
