Jada Pinkett Smith often shares plenty of life lessons on her talk show Red Table Talk on Facebook Watch. The actress is seemingly the more serious Smith family member in comparison to her husband, Will, who keeps his fans laughing. However, Smith, 48, does find the time to show her personality with the simple joys she shares on Instagram.
Reuse Old Items to Make you Feel Beautiful
“When you use an old denim shirt to dress the crown.” Jada recently shared this quote and a picture of herself modeling an old denim shirt as a headwrap. How adorable is this photo to remind us it doesn’t take much for our beauty to shine through? It is nothing more than going inside our closets to boost our joy.
Honoring Her Bonus Son
Smith has always displayed lots of love for her bonus son. Willard Carroll Smith III (Trey) is the son of Will Smith and Sheree Zampino. He came into his bonus mother’s life as a toddler, and over the years, we’ve seen Smith and Trey develop a loving mother and son relationship. It is a union that has placed a positive image for extended families. And one that has brought the entire Smith clan joy as seen in the video Smith shared Monday celebrating the eldest child’s birthday.

To the only Bonus Son I will ever have! Trey … you hold such a special place in my heart and in my world. Thank you for being my comrade in arms in my life and in our spiritual journeys. You have been one of my greatest supporters and you have encouraged me through some tough moments. If you know nothing else … I hope you know I love you more than my words can express. You are a beacon of light for me. You are the Bonus Gift that keeps on giving. Happy Birthday Trey. I love you❤️
“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.” There have been many times Smith has shown love for her life partner of over 20 years. Though one of the most loving and subtle ways happened recently, Will received the honor of a soundstage named after him at Tyler Perry’s new studio expansion in Atlanta. The actor asked the woman by his side, “Are you going up with me?” Her response, “No? You do it. You did this!”
What greater joy is there than to celebrate the achievements of your loved ones as they are recognized.
Thank you for the joy reminders, Jada!
