Tiffani Thiessen and Brady Smith have been married since 2005
Tiffani Thiessen and Brady Smith have been married since 2005, and their near two-decade relationship is stronger than ever.
Even though Smith claims to be smitten with the Saved By The Bell starlet, he insisted that Thiessen actually made the first move. Admittedly, Smith arranged their first date, but Thiessen took it from there.
“Obviously I wanted to kiss her, but I wasn’t gonna be that dude that tries to kiss on the first date. But then she leaned in and laid one on me,” Smith told Yahoo. “And I don’t even remember the drive home."
“Baby, you just swept me off my feet,” Thiessen added in jest. “What can I say?”
So, who is Tiffani Thiessen’s husband? Here's everything to know about Brady Smith and his relationship with the actress.
Smith works as an actor
Thiessen is easily recognized from her iconic roles on Saved By The Bell, Beverly Hills 90210, A Killer Among Friends and more, but Smith is also an actor.
He has appeared in shows like CSI Vegas, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Parks and Recreation and others.
He has an artistic side
Before getting into acting, Smith put his other artistic skills to use.
In addition, he began showing his personal paintings in local galleries and restaurants for seven years before packing things up and moving to L.A. to give an acting career a real shot.
Now, Smith gets the best of both worlds by working as an artist and an actor.
He created a thoughtful proposal
It didn’t take long for the couple to make things official after meeting. Following a year of dating, the couple got engaged.
“I made a book, and I called it The Tiffani & Brady Chronicles,” Smith told Yahoo!. “Each page was trips we’ve taken, stuff that we had done together, special sweet moments. And then on the last page, I drew myself down on one knee proposing. And then when she got to that page, she looked up and I got down on one knee and proposed."
Thiessen and Smith wed in 2005
On July 9, 2009, the Beverly Hills 90210 alum married Smith at a private estate in Montecito, California.
Thiessen wore a French lace gown by Vera Wang, and Smith was fully clad in Kenneth Cole. Their garden ceremony was small and intimate, full of close friends and family.
The day was so special that 15 years later Thiessen and Smith recreated the celebration in their backyard.
They share two kids
The pair share two kids, a daughter, Harper, and a son, Holt.
PEOPLE featured the family’s unconventional holiday card in 2022. The front of the card highlighted a goofy picture of the family of four, while the back featured a small blurb about each member.
Under Harper, the blurb detailed that she "started a new school this fall" and is "a whiz at making friendship bracelets which came in handy with all the new friends she has made."
Following in her mother’s footsteps, she also managed to land the starring role in her school's production of Rambo.
Holt’s blurb offered similar info. "Holt has been hunting frogs and setting small fires in our neighbor's yard. Boy, this kid has spunk," it read.
They wrote a book together
In 2019, Thiessen and Smith put their creative energies together and co-authored a children’s book, titled You’re Missing It.
Inspiration for the book came from the couple’s real life, when Thiessen noticed that her husband was spending too much time focused on his phone rather than their children.
"That's a conversation that's probably very much in the forefront in many households these days, and it's definitely been one of ours," Thiessen told USA Today in 2019.
They prioritize family time
Both the MTV host and the actor cherish their family time and try to make the most of ordinary moments, like spending time at the dinner table or swinging on the swing.
“Dinner time is sacred, special. There’s no electronics. We sit down and we’re like, ‘How was your day?’ This is time to catch up and communicate,” Smith explained to Yahoo Lifestyle. “We think technology is a wonderful thing. Sometimes it’s too much."
He’s a thoughtful gift giver
In addition to being an attentive father, Smith has proven himself an exceptional gift giver.
“My husband swung it out of the park a few years ago,” the author and host once told Page Six Style.
“He surprised me by taking me down to the Porsche Experience, where you get to race a Porsche on the race track,” she gushed. “A lot of people don’t know this about me, but I love race cars. If I were to believe there were past lives, I think I must have been a race car driver.”
The actress added that she loved the gift so much that she has encouraged Smith to give it to her again and again.
