Before he married Jada, Will Smith was married to Sheree Zampino. Together they had a son named Trey. When Will conceived Jaden with Jada, Trey was 6 years old. The Men in Black actor wanted Trey to name their kid because his psychologist had recommended it. It helps build a sense of connection and ownership

But the name that Trey chose caused Jada and Will to question their decision. Trey was determined to name their kid Luigi. Fortunately, the couple was able to convince him otherwise. “Jada and I look at each other in abject horror, both of us thinking the exact same thing: Have you ever met an (expletive) named Luigi?“, the Bright actor said.

    We all make stupid moves, it’s inevitable. I feel like i have made many, but life goes on. I was shocked when Will hit Chris and thought it was a joke. But it turns out it wasn’t. I believe he thought he was standing up for his wife. The look she gave him after the joke was like “ why are you laughing “. He was like “oh sh_t”! Any how i love him and his acting and i think we need to forgive and forget. He accepted his punishment well so let’s move forward.
