We are not finished with Mr. Willard Smith Jr., he is as interesting as they are, but today we will look beyond him and look at some equally interesting people. Don’t worry, all this still brings us back to our dear Willard, because we will check his family, and not only his immediate family, we will also get the information about Mom and Dad Smith.
Stay calm as we move from the younger to the older generation of the Smith family.
Will Smith’s Kids
The actor has three children, his eldest son is from his first marriage to Sheree Zampino and the last two are a product of his union with his current ‘Bae’ Jada Pinkett Smith.
Will Smith’s Kids; Trey Smith
You may wonder who this guy is, we hardly ever hear anything about him, but he is an integral part of the Smith Clan. Born as Willard Carroll ‘Trey’ Smith III on November 11, 1992, in Los Angeles, California, USA, Trey is the first son of Will. Trey had his first appearance when he was 6 years old in a cameo in his father’s music video for the song Just The Two Of Us.
Like some other famous kids, Trey decided to follow in his father’s footsteps instead of going to college, with a full athletic scholarship, we might add. You can see him in the films The Speech (2008) and David Blaine: Real or Magic, 2013. He is also trying to get a foothold in the music industry, working as an accomplished DJ under the stage name AcE.
Will Smith’s Kids; Jayden Smith
You probably know this name, because it is not unknown in public. Jaden Christopher Syre Smith, was born on July 8, 1998, and he is Will and Jada’s first child. You may remember him from the 2010 remake of The Karate Kid and a few movies in which he starred with his father.
The second Smith brother is known for his ‘weird’ world views and his mission to blur gender roles. Yeah guys, if you see a boy of non-Scottish descent wearing a skirt, it’s probably him. He’s a current experiment in gender fluidity and is as liberal as they come.
Will Smith’s Kids; Willow Smith
The last child and only girl of the Smith Clan were born on October 31, 2000, as Willow Camille Reign Smith. Like her siblings before her, she follows in her parents’ footsteps and shows the business is officially the Smith family business. Willow first came to our screens in 2007 in the movie I Am Legend”. You may also remember her 2010 hit single “Whip My Hair”, which peaked at number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100.
She has much more in her portfolio, but these days the starlet has definitely stepped up her game, she was on the cover of Teen Vogue this May and is currently a Chanel brand ambassador. She recently worked with Kendall Jenner in a trendy new anti-cyberbullying campaign for Garage magazine in collaboration with Snapchat.
It’s fun, it’s trendy and more importantly, it has a good message: ‘Be Cool, Be Nice’.
Will Smith’s Wife
Most Hollywood celebrities are married and divorced, some even more than once. So it’s not strange at all that Willard II is number two on “Wife”. Since we already know Will Smith’s Kids, it’s time to get to know the wives.
Will Smith’s Wife; Sheree Zampino
They married in 1992 and in the same year they had their son Trey. According to Sheree, she was unhappy in her relationship with the actor Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and this is what led to their divorce in 1995. She is still a big part of her son’s life and maintains a good relationship with Jada and her children.
Earlier this year the late Alexis Arquette made some pretty strong accusations against Will, Jada, and Sheree. The transgender actress claimed that the couple split up because Sheree caught Will with his male lover. He also said that Sheree’s silence was bought after the divorce. The 48-year-old sent her a well-worded answer on Facebook that put everything into perspective.
Since her divorce, Sheree has proven that she can do it on her own. She founded and owns the skincare company Sheree Elizabeth LLC and starred in the hit series Hollywood Exes for three seasons before being dumped in 2014.
Will Smith’s Wife; Jada Pinkett Smith
Will and Jada have been #goals since they got married in 1997 and 19 years later, amidst constant rumors of the break-up, the two are still together. Remember Will’s girlfriend, Lisa Wilkes, in Fresh Prince of Bel-Air? Well, that could have been Jada, she auditioned but didn’t get the part because she was too small. Will certainly didn’t seem to mind her size.
Apart from her great acting career, she is a fairly accomplished businesswoman and is involved in a lot of charity work.
Will Smith’s Parents
Will was born into the family of Willard Carroll Smith, Sr and Caroline Bright and they lived in West Philadelphia’s Wynnefield neighborhood. Willard Sr. was a refrigeration engineer and his wife was a school administrator from Philadelphia. Will is perhaps the most famous, but he was not the only child the couple had together.
He has three siblings; the first is a four-year older sister Pamela and the three years younger twins Harry and Ellen. Their family was torn apart in 1981 when Willard Sr. and Caroline were separated but did not actually separate until 2000.
His two parents are still an important part of his life and he is not afraid to show it.
