Hawthorn actress, Jada Pinkett-Smith, most recently opened up about her relationship with actor Will Smith stating that she was very grateful to have him in her life. Despite recent rumors of their alleged break-up, the actress confirms that the power couple is still tighter than ever.
Jada, who grew up in a single parent household, states that she is very grateful for having a husband to share in raising her children, Jaden, 13, and Willow, 10. The children, who are already on their way to A-list stardom on the big screen and in the music industry, will definitely need all the support they can get from their superstar mom and dad, especially since both of them have been in the entertainment business for many years. Both Will and Jada have careers in the film and music industry.
According to a source, Jada Pinkett-Smith says this about her childhood, "Having been raised by a single mother I'm very clear on what the difficulties of being raised by a single mother are. It's very hard when you don't have a male component in the home to create balance and help in the decision making. Sometimes it's nice to be able to just pass the ball, like, 'tag, you're it, you got this one'."
Even though it was not always easy being from a single-parent household, her upbringing has certainly prepared her to be a strong, independent career woman and mother figure for her children.
The actress also says that religion has always helped her to focus and remain grounded in regards to her life and family relationships.
In relation to previous speculation of the family's connection to Scientology, Jada confirms, "I'm not actually a Scientologist. People make assumptions about what I believe but my religion is love."
Love is definitely the key to any harmonious marriage, family and career.
