She told PEOPLE that the trip has been a blessing and a challenge, especially since her son has been diagnosed with autism.
“We have been really fortunate to have this wonderful time and to be able to be in Florida and spend Christmas with my son and with my family and just being able to hang out with my friends,” McCarthy said.
“It’s just so special and I think the people of St Barts are just so generous.
It’s just such a special place and so special people, so blessed to be here.”
She added that her son, now 8, “is a very big part of our life, which is so amazing.”
Smith and McCarthy are expecting their first child together, a daughter named Kourtney.

I love Florida so much,” Brady said.
He also added that he was not surprised to be picked for this year’s Super Bowl.
“They selected me for this [last] year because I love this place and I love being a part of this great league,” Brady told PEOPLE.
Brady has been out of the league for two years and his children, Brady Jr. and Jacob, are still under his care.
