We might get a little confused but Nancy sure doesn’t, she has been married to her drummer for the past 10-years! She is actually Chad’s second wife and mother of three of his six children. Nancy tied the knot to Chad on May 8th 2004. She and Chad welcomed their first child in 2005, a boy named Cole, then it was Beckett Cash born in 20o9 and a third child born in 2013.
Her hubby is also the father of a daughter born in 1997, Manon St John Smith; product of his first marriage to first wife Maria St John. The former couple was briefly married from 1996-1997. Nancy’s hubby is also the father of two other children through other relationships; son Justin Smith, born in 1998 and Ava Cardoso-Smith, born in 2000.
Did you catch her husband last night on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon? We had been waiting for the showdown since the comedy actor accepted Smith’s public challenge – promising “the greatest drum v cowbell showdown the world has ever seen” – back in February last year.
The long-awaited drum-off between the actor and his doppelganger was epic! The duo did the entire bit as the other person and long story short Ferrell eventually ceded his kit to, naturally, a cowbell as Smith’s Red Hot Chili Peppers bandmates surprised the audience and began playing the Blue Öyster Cult.
Is time now, to keep our talk about Smith’s lovely wife.
Nancy who is an architect splits her time between New York and her family house in Malibu, California.
In addition to his work with the Chili Peppers, Nancy’s husband is also the drummer of the hard rock supergroup Chickenfoot and his own instrumental side-project, Chad Smith’s Bombastic Meatbats. Chad has also teamed up with singer, Leslie Bixler and legendary actor, **** Van **** to record a children’s album, titled Rhythm Train.
