Pat Smith, wife of NFL legend Emmitt Smith, has been the rock to her family for 15 years. Being married to NFL legend Emmitt Smith comes with countless commitments, demands and excitement. Pat has been keeping up with their fast-paced life as a dedicated wife and mother. It may be challenging to maintain their traditional family roles at times, but the couple must embrace and adjust to change.
