Will Smith’s family is one of the most famous in the world. Along with his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith, and their children, Jaden and Willow, who are stars in their own right, the four have enjoyed worldwide fame.
So you may be surprised that Will Smith has another son; his eldest, Trey Smith.
Trey, 26, is the only son of Will Smith’s first marriage to Sheree Zampino in 1992.
The two divorced in 1995, when Trey was just three years old.
Will and Jada-Pinkett Smith began dating the same year, and they married in 1997 before having two children together: Jaden, now 21, and Willow, 18.
Although Smith and his three children can regularly be seen together now, it hasn’t always been as amicable.
Side note – Should Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith have to “come out”? Post continues after video.
We were first introduced to Trey when he was just five-years-old, starring in his father’s music video for “Just The Two of Us”.
“Now Dad, this is a very sensitive subject…” he adorably says in the music video.
Earlier this year in an episode of Will’s ‘Bucket List‘ Facebook Watch show, the actor reflected on his challenges with Trey early on his eldest son’s life.
“This relationship with Trey is brand new,” he admitted. “When you get divorced and then start another family, that had effects on Trey that we’re still healing and overcoming. Really in the last two years has there been enough wisdom and emotional development to be able to lovingly address the issues.
“We’re diving into creating a divine, loving friendship.”
