Jada Pinkett-Smith wants you to know that her kids make her happy. The actress took to social media on Sunday to wish moms well and talk about her unique bunch.
“I’m the proud bonus mother of a 22 year old who is journeying to define his independence through a world that can be harsh to a giving soul at times,” said Jada of her step-son Trey. She went on to tell Facebook fans, “I’m also the proud mother of a 16 year old boy who is as comfortable in a dress as he is with a drill in his hand, and that of a 14 year old girl who spends most of her days lost in trees…with her crystals…pondering physics. Yup…that’s my other worldly trio and you know what…I’m d*** proud!”
Although many have criticized Jada for her open book parenting practices, the actress told fans that she enjoys being an unconventional mother. “There is no one way, one system or approach to raising and loving our children,” explained Jada. “The art form of mothering is innate and a communication from her soul to her child’s spirit which is deeply specific and never a carbon copy of another’s spirit, not even herself. In fact, the mothers to which they are born to, are equally as unique. So how could, or better yet, WHY should one approach to mothering look like any other,” questioned the star.
Jada and husband Will Smith have two kids, Jaden and Willow, together. Trey is Will Smith’s son from a previous relationship.
