Lasting Celebrity Couples, Day 2 of 5

Today’s couple is…Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith. They are a true Hollywood power couple. They have both played roles in many successful films, way too many to list, and have also had success with singing, producing, and directing.

The couple first met in 1995 when Jada auditioned for a role in “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” in which Will played the lead role and where he first captured our hearts with his acting. He played a rebellious but good-hearted teenager living with his rich aunt and uncle, three cousins, and a butler, who he nick-named, “G.” Unfortunately, Jada did not get the part because she was, “too short.”

Will proposed to Jada in November of 1997, and on December 31st of that same year, they were married in Baltimore at the Cloisters Mansion.

The couple have two children together, Jaden Christopher Syre Smith, born July 8, 1998, and Willow Camille Reign Smith, born October 31, 2000. Jaden Smith played alongside his father in “The Pursuit of Happiness.”

Will also has Trey Smith, born in 1992, from Will’s previous marriage to Sheree Zampino.
Fun facts: Will turned down a scholarship to M.I.T. to pursue his dreams of acting and rapping, and Jada was Miss Maryland 1988. Cool huh?
