Looking back, it’s surreal to see the issues facing Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith now, considering they were once a power couple. But they’ve had differing views before.
Jada shared that the first time they slept together, she instantly knew she was pregnant. Though it was just intuition, Will had an outrageous way of confirming it.
Will’s Hilarious Attempts to Disprove Pregnancy
After 20+ years of marriage, their first night together still makes Jada laugh. She recalled on Red Table Talk that post-sex; she told Will she was expecting. He burst into laughter, saying it wasn’t biologically possible.
But Jada insisted her instincts were right. This prompted Will to make her jump rapidly and do a headstand to “disprove” pregnancy. As Jada described, she just felt it deeply, like the turning of a bank vault lock in her womb.
The Aftermath: Birth, Affair, and Marital Troubles
Though Will doubted her, Jada was proven right when she was confirmed pregnant three months later. They welcomed their son Jaden Smith. Looking back now after affairs and recent revelations of living separate lives since 2015-16, their reaction to an unplanned pregnancy seems especially ironic.
Around then, Jada had her infamous fling with August Alsina, which makes more sense in hindsight. As a couple, they’ve gone from disbelief at having a child to having serious marital issues.
The aftermath of that first pregnancy has seen dramatic highs and lows in Will and Jada’s relationship. They’ve gone from the joy of welcoming baby Jaden to the pain of affairs and giving interviews about living apart.
While Will’s initial reaction was laughter and disbelief when Jada announced she was pregnant, he would soon be marveling at the arrival of their son. For Jada, her maternal instinct was correct from the very start.
Though Will made her jump up and down to prove it wrong, deep down perhaps he was filled with nervous excitement about the life they had created together.
