Will Smith’s Kids; Trey Smith
You might be wondering who this guy is, we hardly hear about him, but he is an integral part of the Smith Clan. Born, Willard Carroll ‘Trey’ Smith III on November 11, 1992 in Los Angeles, California, USA, Trey is Will’s first son. Trey made his first appearance when he was 6 years old in a cameo in his dad’s music video for the song, Just The Two Of Us.
Like some other celebrity kids, Trey chose to follow in his father’s footsteps rather than go to college, riding on a full sports scholarship, if we may add. You can spot him in the movies , The Speech (2008) and David Blaine: Real or Magic (2013). He’s also trying to find his footing in the music industry, and is making it works as an accomplished DJ who performs under the stage name AcE.

Will Smith’s Kids; Jayden Smith
This name, you definitely know, as he is no stranger to the public eye. Jaden Christopher Syre Smith, was born on July 8, 1998 and he is Will and Jada’s first child together. You may remember him from the remake 2010 remake of The Karate Kid and a couple of movies he starred in with his father.
The second Smith brother is known for his ‘weird’ world views and his mission to blur gender roles. Yes people, if you spot a boy, of non-Scottish descent, wearing a skirt it’s probably him. He’s a currently dabbling in ‘Gender fluidity’ and is as liberal as they come.
Will Smith’s Kids; Willow Smith
The last child and only girl in the Smith clan was born Willow Camille Reign Smith, on October 31, 2000. Like her siblings before her, she is following in her parent’s footsteps and show business is officially the Smith’s family business. Willow first graced our screens in 2007 in the film 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 a lot 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. More recently, she teamed up with Kendall Jenner in a trendy new anti-cyber bullying 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 celebs have been married and divorced, some even more than once. So it’s not strange at all that Willard II is on ‘wifey’ number two. Since we are already acquainted with Will Smith’s Kids, it’s time to meet the wives.
Will Smith’s Wife; Sheree Zampino
They got married in 1992 and had their son, Trey, that same year. According to Sheree, she was unhappy in her union with the Fresh Prince of Bel Air actor and that was what led to their divorce in 1995. She is still a big part of her sons life and maintains a good relationship with Jada and her kids.
Earlier this year, the Late Alexis Arquette made some pretty strong allegations against, Will, Jada and Sheree. The transgender actress claimed that the couple broke up because Sheree walked in on Will with his male lover. In addition to that he said that Sheree’s silence was bought after the divorce. The 48 year old sent her a well worded response on Facebook that put everything into perspective.
Since her divorce, Sheree has proved that she can make it on her own. She founded and owns the skin care company Sheree Elizabeth LLC and she starred on the hit TV series Hollywood Exes for three seasons before it was cancelled 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 the constant break up rumors, the two are still together. Do you remember the Will’s girlfriend, Lisa Wilkes, on Fresh Prince of Bel Air? Well, that could have been Jada, she auditioned but didn’t get the part because she was too short. Will certainly didn’t seem to mind her height.
Apart from her stellar acting career, she is quite the accomplished business woman and she 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 in West Philadelphia’s Wynnefield neighborhood. Willard Sr. was a refrigeration engineer and his wife a Philadelphia school board administrator. Will may be the most famous, but he was not the only child the couple had together.
He has three siblings; the first born being a sister Pamela, who is four years older, and twins Harry and Ellen, who are three years younger. Their family was torn apart in 1981 when Willard Sr. and Caroline got separated but did not actually break up until 2000.
Both his parents are still an important part of his life and he’s not afraid to show it.
