Will Smith hailed his wife and son on the stage

In the 1999 award ceremony, Will Smith was presented a Grammy by Missy Elliot for the song Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It. The American actor seemed pretty emotional on the stage as he expressed his gratitude to God and his second wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, for being the jiggiest wife in the world. Meanwhile, he also narrated a hilarious incident from his son’s Trey parent-teacher meeting.

The 54-year-old had recalled Trey’s teacher telling him about his son being weak in rhyming. Although the teacher was all praises for Trey, she believed that he had room for improvement when it came to his rhyming skills. Smith took the entire blame himself for neglecting his child and thus dedicated the award to his son. 

“He’s paying attention in class, but his teacher told me his rhyming skills are down. I swear now see for me that’s just pure parental neglect, you know, so I want to dedicate this award to my son Trey,” Smith said while receiving the award.

Will Smith and his current wife Jada share a warm and loving relationship with Trey. Initially, Trey was not fond of his father, as he blamed Smith for abandoning him when he was just three years old. However, with time, the two have warmed up with each and have rekindled their love and friendship.
