Jada Pinkett-Smith has been married to actor Will Smith for nearly fifteen years, and is enjoying every moment of it. The ‘Madagascar 3’ star recently sat down with Essence magazine to talk about her husband’s relationship with children Willow,11, Jaden,13, and Trey,19.
Although he is viewed as a dynamic actor by many, Will is seen as a stellar father by his family. “In [Willow’s] eyes, it’s like the world is at my finger tips because I’ve got daddy,” says Jada. “It’s a very interesting relationship to watch and to see how her confidence is really steeped in the idea that she’s got this beautiful, strong man as her father is beautiful. For a little girl to be in partnership with her father in that way brings tears to my eyes every time because I feel like every little girl in the world deserves that.”
Among the numerous characteristics that make Will great, Jada believes that his ability to be emotionally in tune is his greatest attribute. “What makes Will the best father in the world to me is that he’s there, not just there in a way that’s traditional,” explains Jada. “The emotional support he offers his children is immeasurable. You can find a man that loves you, but if you can find a man that loves you and is a great father, you couldn’t hit a bigger jackpot than that,” the actress adds.
