Who Is Cheerleader Elizabeth Barry – Alex Smith’s Wife?

Due to the level of popularity the sport brings to them, the lives of American football players are always under scrutiny, and that includes their wives. In the case of Alex Smith, quarterback for the Washington Redskins, Elizabeth Barry, a former cheerleader and now his wife since 2009, shares the spotlight with him.

Unlike Alex Smith who makes headlines practically every week in each football season, his wife, Elizabeth, lives a quiet life away from the media. In this article, we detail everything there is to know about her, including her relationship with Alex Smith and other facts.

Who Exactly is Alex Smith’s Wife – Elizabeth Barry?

If there is one fact that stands out about Alex Smith’s wife, it would be that she used to be a cheerleader. The former cheerleader was born on the 2nd of April in 1984. Before she met Smith, not much was known about her background, and since getting married to the star quarterback, that hasn’t changed very much.

Details about the former cheerleader’s background and education remain hidden away from the media, except for her professional life.

She was a cheerleader for the Oakland Raiders for a time in the early 2000s to the late 2000s. A career that not only brought her into the middle of football action but also led her to meet her husband, Alex Smith.
