“[For a year], they would hear me talking on the phone or see me on FaceTime — that was just mommy’s friend,” Smith shared with Use. “But then I let them know that I had a boyfriend and they met him about a year into the relationship. He came to L.A., and he stayed there for about a week. We took them each on separate days and spent time with them separately.”

I think once we can all be in the same country, eventually one day it will just be one big happy bunch … I would love nothing more than to walk down the aisle with my biological dad and marry this man because he’s awesome.”
