How Many Kids Do Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith Have, and What Are Their Ages?
One of Hollywood’s most enduring marriages is that of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. The Fresh Prince icon and the petite actress first started dating in 1995 and tied the knot in 1997. Since then, they’ve become the ultimate power couple, supporting each other in every facet of the other’s career. Their family life is the subject of constant scrutiny, as they share three children (two of their own and one from Will Smith’s previous relationship) who have all made names for themselves. Here’s a rundown of the famous Smith children and how they are best known.
Will Smith’s oldest son
Before Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith got together, he was married to Sheree Zampino. Smith and Zampino got married in 1992, just as Smith was enjoying his rise to fame, and their son Willard Carroll “Trey” Smith III was born the very same year. Their relationship was rocky, and the pair divorced in 1995. Smith has been open about how his relationship with Trey was sometimes difficult as a result of the divorce but shares a close friendship with his oldest child these days.
Trey Smith is a music producer and uses the name AcE Nation for much of his work. Unlike his famous father and half-siblings, he hasn’t shared much interest in acting, though he has made small appearances in various sitcoms and music videos, but remains devoted to his music, which can be found on his SoundCloud page.

Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s first child together was born in 1998. Jaden Christopher Syre Smith first started getting noticed as an actor, playing his father’s movie son in the films The Pursuit of Happyness and After Earth. He also scored a starring role in the 2010 remake of The Karate Kid. Jaden Smith ultimately turned his focus to music and has become well known as a rapper and songwriter.
The young star is no stranger to controversy – in 2016, Jaden appeared in a fashion campaign modeling women’s clothing, including a flowy skirt, to combat bullying. Jaden’s social media account is also quite active, and he lends his support to a wide variety of causes, including tweeting in support of non-traditional education.
Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s only daughter
Willow Camille Reign Smith was born in October 2000 and is the only daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. Like her older brother Jaden Smith, Willow showed an early interest in acting and co-starred with her father in the 2007 film I Am Legend. Willow started her rise to fame in 2010, with the release of her popular single ‘Whip My Hair.’ The song became a huge hit with preteens, and went on to chart at number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Willow Smith has since focused entirely on her music, and released her album ARDIPITHECUS in December 2015. Two years later, in October 2017, she released her second studio album, The 1st. The album was well-received both by critics and audiences, who compared Willow’s sound to classic R&B artists. Currently, the 18-year old is reported to be working on new music.
The Smith family struggles

The Smiths have been open about their trials and tribulations as a family, including discussing times when they thought that they were on the brink of splitting up. However, after more than 20 years of marriage, it is clear that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are committed to each other and their talented, inspirational children. No matter what comes next for Trey, Jaden, and Willow Smith, they know that they always have a solid support system to fall back on in their famous parents.
Films and TV Shows
‘The Pursuit of Happyness’
Alongside his seemingly normal childhood, Smith enjoyed a second life as an up-and-coming Hollywood star. He made his acting debut in 2003, at the tender age of 6, on All of Us, a UPN show created by Will and Jada Pinkett Smith and based on their own blended family. Not long after, Jaden made his big screen debut in the The Pursuit of Happyness (2006). Based on a true story, The Pursuit of Happyness depicts the life of Christopher Gardner, a homeless salesman whose intelligence and perseverance eventually allow him to become a wealthy stockbroker.
Starring opposite his real-life dad, Jaden portrayed Gardner’s son, Christopher Jr., who is forced to live on the streets with his father. The young Smith won universal acclaim for his nuanced and heartwarming performance. The New York Times called him “likable in the extreme,” and he won an MTV Movie Award for Breakthrough Performance.
‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’
In 2008, Smith struck out on his own to make his first performances in projects not involving his parents. In April of that year, he guest starred in an episode of the Disney Channel’s popular show The Suite Life of Zach and Cody. Next, he appeared opposite Keanu Reeves and Jennifer Connelly in a remake of the classic science fiction thriller The Day the Earth Stood Still, earning a Saturn Award for Best Performance by a Younger Actor.

Success with ‘The Karate Kid’
Smith landed his biggest role to date in 2010, starring alongside Jackie Chan in a remake of the 1984 coming-of-age classic, The Karate Kid. Smith plays Dre Parker, a 12-year-old Detroit native who moves to China to study martial arts with a kung fu master, so that he can face down the bullies who torment him. The film was a box-office smash, earning Smith praise for his impressive acting and kung fu skills. Chan praised Smith’s dedication to his martial arts training, saying, “He put my son to shame!” Smith also ventured into the world of music in conjunction with his work on the film, recording its official theme song, “Never Say Never,” in partnership with pop sensation Justin Bieber.
After months of intensive martial arts training, Smith developed the physique of a much older boy, and he also earned a reputation as a lively and witty interview subject. (“Do you know how to sew? ‘Cause I’m ripped,” he quipped to an interviewer.) Father Will Smith admitted, “This kid is funnier than I was at his age. But then, he did have me as a father.”
By the time he turned 12, Smith had achieved levels of success that most actors only dream about. All three of his films had debuted at No. 1 at the North American box office, and he seemed ready to follow his parents down the path of Hollywood stardom.
Poor Reviews for ‘After Earth’
In 2013, Smith again teamed up with his dad to co-star in After Earth. A sci-fi coming-of-age story, the film features the younger Smith developing his survival skills as he races to save himself and his father on a futuristic, inhospitable Earth. This time, both the film and its young star received a harsh reception from audiences, as he “won” the Golden Raspberry for Worst Actor. Not all of the reviews were bad — some critics considered the film an enjoyable spectacle, and Smith earned a nod from the MTV Movie Awards for the Summer’s Biggest Teen Bad Ass Star. Still, the experience seemingly soured him, leading to an extended hiatus from the big screen.
‘The Get Down,’ ‘Skate Kitchen’
Smith returned to series television in 2016 with The Get Down, about the rise of hip-hop and disco in New York City in the late 1970s. In 2018, he was part of the cast of Skate Kitchen, based on the real-life story of a group of female skateboarders.
Following his collaboration with Bieber, Smith released a couple of mixtapes, The Cool Cafe and Cool Tape Vol. 2.
In November 2017, Smith unveiled his first studio album, Syre, which featured contributions from ASAP Rocky and sister Willow. The hip-hop-themed collection drew some positive reviews, peaking at No. 24 on the Billboard 200 en route to gold certification. On July 8, 2018, to commemorate his 20th birthday, Smith dropped Syre: The Electric Album via Instagram.
The artist followed with The Sunset Tapes: A Cool Tape Story later that year, before dropping the EP Erys Is Coming in April 2019. As promised, he delivered the full-length album Erys in July 2019, shortly after the release of the single “Again.”

Jada Pinkett Smith has described her fury when Child Protective Services were called to investigate her family.
The star admitted she had never been that angry after someone reported her, claiming she was starving Willow, who was 13 at the time.
It all started when the family was criticised for a photo of young Willow lying in bed fully-clothed with Disney star and family friend Moises Arias, who is seven years her senior.
The photo was innocent but a CPS investigation began anyway.
Jada, 48, said on her show Red Table Talk: ‘That was the first time I ever got furious.’
‘I was looking at the lady and the whole time I was thinking, “You could be helping so many kids right now,”‘ Willow, 19, said of the social worker. ‘And you’re wasting your time with a child who has everything they need.’
Although the social worker knew Willow wasn’t being starved, Jada still panicked and wanted her children – Willow and Jaden – to be on the ‘best behaviour’ when being interviewed.

Willow admitted to purposely messing with the social worker (Picture: Brazil Photo Press / SplashNews.com)
In true Willow and Jaden fashion, they took another approach.
‘My kids were like, “whatever,”‘ Jada revealed. ‘And that’s how they treated it. Her and Jaden… and there was nothing Will and I could do. We were just like, “please chill out.” And they were like, “No. This is stupid and it’s ridiculous”.
‘It was like their personal protest. The way they were conducting these interviews was literally like, “What are you doing here?”‘
‘We were gangster!’ Willow insisted. ‘I was eating in the interview!’
The singer opted for a bowl of cereal at 2pm, which made Jada even more anxious.

‘She was eating at two o’clock in the afternoon with a bowl of cereal… and she was like, “No I just got up. This is like my breakfast.”
‘Playing games, alright? Playing games! I was like, “They already think we’re starving you, you’re going to walk in with a bowl of cereal at two o’clock and say this is your first meal!” I was like, “Lord Jesus take the wheel!”‘
She admitted to purposely eating throughout the CPS interview out of spite.
‘I walked in with a bowl of cereal specifically because I knew that they said you were starving me,’ she admitted.
‘I was like, “You know what? I’m going to walk in with food and eat the entire time! I’m going to eat throughout the entire interview!”‘

Jada Pinkett Smith: Workout Routines & Much More
Living a healthy lifestyle: Don’t hate Jada Pinkett Smith because she seems to have it all together!
She admits to facing the same challenges we all do: keeping her career hot, her marriage hotter, and her body hottest.
Check out Shape’s August issue where Jada offers up her stay-sane secrets and workout routines.
When you meet Jada Pinkett Smith, it’s kind of hard not to be awestruck –happily married for almost 12 years to Hollywood heartthrob Will Smith, three kids, a successful career and a killer bod!
Surprisingly still full of energy after the Shape cover shoot, Jada sat down and talked openly about how she really does it all. “I won’t lie to you,” the Baltimore native admits. “I have a lot of help. It takes a village to run my life successfully!” It also takes a focused mind, total honesty, and a great sense of humor.
Get hooked on fitness workouts
Ever since she was kid, Jada’s been physically active, something her mother, a single mom and nurse, encouraged by enrolling her in classes for gymnastics, dance, and horseback riding.
“Sitting at home on a Saturday or Sunday was never an option,” says Jada, who has passed the torch for fitness workouts on to her own kids, Trey, 16 , Jaden, 11, and Willow, 8. “They love to go to the gym with Will and me, but surfing and snowboarding is what we do together as a family for fun.” Her mom gets in on the action when she’s in town, hitting the gym with Jada at 6:30 a.m. “She’s Miss Workout,” says Jada proudly.
This shift has also created a sense of balance in Jada’s relationship. “Will and I are yin and yang,” she says. “He’s all sky, vast and bright and soaring, and I’m all earth. I’m here to ground him, and he’s here to help me fly.” Case in point: When Jada put her acting career on hold between 2004 and 2005 to go on the road with her metal band, Wicked Wisdom, as part of the Ozzfest tour, Will not only supported her, he and the kids also went along for the ride.
Healthy lifestyle tips # 2: Nurture romance
While family is the couple’s main focus, Jada makes sure she and Will’s love life stays, well, lively. Besides doing her daily Kegels (“It keeps the sex hot,” says Jada), she takes time to nourish their relationship. “Last week we were stressed out, so I packed a picnic and took Will to a place we hiked to on one of our first dates. We sat and reminisced on that time in our life. Then we went home and made love. Thank God Will has simple tastes. Even the littlest thing for him is like, ‘Wow!'”
Healthy lifestyle tips # 3: Fuel your body…
Jada admits she is lacking in one area: “I can’t cook!” she says. “It’s genetic. My grandmother can’t cook, my mother can’t cook. I was raised to believe you eat because your body needs fuel for energy, so I eat superfoods.”
Jada does love to bake, however; her specialty is 7-Up cake, but she has to be careful about having desserts around the house, for Will’s sake. “He has a horrific sweet tooth,” she says. “If there’s cake in front of him, he’ll eat the whole thing!”

Jada Pinkett Smith is proving that age really is just a number, showing off her incredible figure in a steamy bikini snap on Instagram.
The 47-year-old actress, has two children, Jaden, 21, and Willow, 18, with husband Will Smith,
Jada is currently on vacation in Italy with her family and posted the stunning pic while relaxing on a luxury yacht.
She is living her best life and we are here for it!

Jada is open about exactly how she gets her insane body – and making exercise a family activity is just one part of it.
“I started at age, and I’ve been doing it ever since,” Jada told W magazine of her commitment to training.
“We go hard. Because I’ve had so many different types of bodies, so I know I don’t need a trainer, and I know how to train her for what she wants. I know exactly what she needed to get, where she wanted to go.”
And you won’t catch this family lounging around on the couch on the weekends.
“Sitting at home on a Saturday or Sunday was never an option,” she told Shape.
“They love to go to the gym with Will and me, but surfing and snowboarding are what we do together as a family for fun.”

And although she works out regularly, Jada’s attitude to exercise is refreshingly realistic and balanced.
“It’s funny—my cardio workout varies. If I have a heavy carb week, I’ve got a heavy cardio week. I tell people all the time, ‘You can eat whatever you want, as long as you’re willing to put the work in’ and that’s a thing I had to learn,” she told Health.
“So I make sure I do something physical every single day. But that doesn’t mean you have to go to the gym and freakin’ kill yourself! I do 20 minutes of cardio a day,” Jada said.
“Everybody’s thinking you gotta be in the gym for an hour and a half. Literally, I’m never in the gym longer than 45 minutes. Just be consistent, that’s it!
“It doesn’t necessarily have to be intense, and you will see a difference. Just go out of your house and do a brisk walk! Every night, my mother and I take the dog and just walk, and that’s a ritual for us.”
She also loves to mix it up with weight and resistance training to keep her muscle definition.
“I do yoga. I also do a sled machine, which track runners use for training — you put a harness on and pull things. I do push-ups and some light weights because I’m definitely trying to go for a softer look with my upper body,” she said.
When it comes to diet, Jada is extremely disciplined.
“My real diet though, well, I don’t eat for pleasure. I probably had the only West Indian grandmother that could not cook. She was an awful cook, and she taught me that you don’t eat for taste, you eat for nourishment,” she told Essence magazine.
“And I have kept that over the years, so I can eat anything that’s healthy. I eat for my schedule so I have to eat high-protein, lots of greens and healthy carbs so that I don’t fall flat on my face.”
© Provided by Bauer Media Pty Ltd Look at that skin!
But she still has to eat plenty of calories to fuel her workouts.
“My husband’s trainer started giving me diet tips and he dismissed the myth that more carbs means you’re going to be unhealthy,” Jada said.
“What I realised is that I wasn’t eating enough of the proper foods like pasta and rice. I needed more of a high-carb situation in order to facilitate the amount of calories I burn.
“That meant more fruits, meant a lot of vegetables because those are carbs as well and, if I want, some pasta or toast or English muffins.”
And cheat days are totally allowed!
“French fries, and pizza… together. If I could have French fries and pizza every day I would really live off that.”

Jada Pinkett Smith’s diet is surprisingly simple — here’s what she eats to stay in killer shape
- Jada Pinkett Smith follows a diet best equipped to fuel her body.
- She limits sugar and increases protein, greens, and healthy carbs.
- Smith’s diet helps her stay in shape and energized for her day.
Jada Pinkett Smith has been gracing television and movie screens since 1990, and it feels like she has barely aged a day since. The 46-year-old, who married Will Smith in 1997, has learned over the years what kind of food her body runs best on and has committed to feeding it what it needs.
Despite admitting to Shape Magazine that she can’t cook at all, she focuses on a diet high in protein and vegetables and believes in the power of “superfoods.” Here is everything you need to know about her diet and workout.
She treats food as fuel.
When speaking with Essence in 2012, Smith revealed she treats food as fuel and nourishment for her body, rather eating for pleasure — a lesson she learned from her West Indian grandmother. And this idea is shared by others, as well. Forbes reported on “productivity-increasing foods” being ones that slowly release glucose throughout the day, so you can avoid the afternoon slump. These include eggs, brown rice, fruits and vegetables, salmon, and nuts.
Her exercise regiment dictates her meals.
The reason Smith needs so much fuel is that she keeps her workout game is strong. She told Shape that she works out at 6:30 in the morning, and that means she needs the right food to keep moving. Protein, leafy greens, and healthy carbohydrates allow her to hit the gym hard without losing energy throughout the day.
She allows herself some guilty pleasures.
Since @willsmith got me look’n all crazy in his Daddy Dearest video … I had to push some “counter programming”😜
It’s not all fuel though. Smith also believes in the importance of balance and allows herself a few guilty pleasures. She’s said that pizza and french fries are her weaknesses, and she even likes to eat them together. But when she does give in to those guilty pleasures, she puts in the work to make up for it.
In an interview with Health, Smith said that she increases the intensity of her workouts to match her diet. More carbs mean more cardio.
She doesn’t eat pork or beef.
Smith’s protein choices are fish, chicken, and poultry, and she stays away from pork and beef. According to Health, she focuses on lean proteins to fuel her body, and even keeps hard-boiled eggs in the refrigerator for a quick protein-packed snack.
She cut out sugar to avoid mood swings.
Despite admitting to Shape Magazine that her husband has quite a sweet tooth, she recently decided to cut out sugar from her diet. According to Smith, she found herself suffering from depressive episodes, likening it to an “emotional rollercoaster,” and she attributed these mood shifts to sugar.

Jada says her diet includes protein-rich foods like grilled chicken or fish and apples with peanut butter. This helps her muscles maintain a great shape. She consumes more low GI foods to ensure that her blood sugar levels are maintained at the ideal range and helps keep the fat cells at bay. Her exercise routine includes both intensive cardio exercises as well as weight training to keep her fit and in shape always. She typically works out two times a day using cardio exercises in the morning, and weight training in the evening. She warms up for about 5 minutes then do sprint intervals of 1 minute then followed with recovery phases. She does compound movements like squats, lunges, lateral pull downs, bench press, rows and curls.
“Push-ups are my favorite exercise for my arms. You may need to start on your knees to get in 3 sets of 10. Try to work to getting off of your knees and doing as many push-ups as possible a day until your arms look the way YOU want. Try different arm positions as well, hands in a triangle with nose to the middle of it for triceps, arms wide hands turned out for chest, and then the good ol’ classic push-up. No gym necessary. 🙂
Remember, beauty is all about how you feel about YOU, no matter color, shape or size. Here’s to our health and our unique beauty!”

Though the video featuring Gammy with a set of massive biceps is clearly a joke, there’s no denying that when it comes to fitness, Banfield-Jones is on top of it. This past August, she posted a small glimpse into her weight-lifting regimen with the caption,”Knock’em out!”

Based on her caption it seems that Banfield-Jones takes her fitness cues from Charles “Chizel It” Harris, a Baltimore-based trainer who, in his Instagram bio, describes himself as a fitness entrepreneur and body transformation expert.
And back in April, she posted this fierce gym selfie.

Also, let’s not forget this shot from last month where Jada showed that the whole six-pack thing is all in the family. Clearly, Banfield-Jones’ genes are strong. She captioned the shot with, “That three generational thing✨.”
