Will Smith shares hilarious photo of son Jaden on his 22nd birthday: ‘You’re clearly questioning my parenting!’

The Pretext

Will Smith recently got every emotional while discussing parenthood.

This was during an appearance on wife Jada Pinkett-Smith’s Facebook Watch show, Red Table Talk.

He took to social media to wish his son, Jaden Smith, on his 22nd birthday on Wednesday and gave a vaguely cute caption.

The Sequence

The Bad Boys actor, 51, spoke candidly to his wife, 48, about the trials and tribulations of parenting his three children, Trey, 27, Jaden, 22, and Willow, 19.

In the Father’s Day Special of the online talk show, Will confessed that when he first became a father he was terrified.

He also discussed how devastated he was following his split from wife, Sheree, 52, in the 90s.

Will became a father aged 24 in November 1992, when he welcomed his son Willard Carroll ‘Trey’ Smith III with his first wife Sheree, who he divorced thee years later.

He went on to marry Jada in 1997, and they share rapper, singer, songwriter, and actor Jaden, and singer, songwriter and actress Willow.

When asked by Jada when his first fatherly instincts kicked in, he said: ‘From the time I was 6 years old, I wanted to be a father.’

The End

‘I loved how my family was, but there were massive, critical deficiencies in my father’s parenting that I wanted to correct.’

I was not a kid you had to slap or punch or beat, so growing up in a household where physical aggression was approved of, that really chaffed my hide, that hurt my spirit.

‘There’s such beautiful qualities that he instilled that are a big part of me … but as the yin to every yang, I watched him beat up my mother’, he went on to say.
