Willow Smith Recalls Accidentally Walking in on Her Parents Having Sex
Willow Smith has definitely survived every child’s worst nightmare.
In discussing topics like motherhood, body image and sex for the May 7 episode of their Facebook Watch series Red Table Talk, hosted by the 17-year-old and her mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, the convo took a left turn down TMI lane when Willow shared how she once walked in on her parents having sex.
The Set it Off phenom spoke with Vulture about the many shocking moments from the recent taping, and how her daughter's admission took her totally by surprise.
“We were doing the sex show, I was like, ‘What was your introduction to sex?’” the Girls Trip actress told the pub, not expecting her daughter’s astounding reply. “She was like, ‘Well, you know, me walking in on you and Dad.’ I had no idea!”
Responsively, Willow reassured her mom that she didn't learn or witness anything inappropriate between her mom and famous dad, Will Smith, during the unconventional lesson in the birds and the bees.
“I was like, ‘Lord have mercy, what did you see? Thank God I have some therapy fund put aside for you,’” Pinkett Smith said, mitigating her embarrassment with humor. “I had never heard that, and she said that what she got from that was that she walked into a private space. She was like, ‘That’s private time.’ She said she didn’t really see anything. But she knew she had just walked in on a very private moment.”
Miraculously, the only family member out of the loop is the man of the house himself. Though the Gotham player has been devising a hilarious get-back scheme to break the news to her husband.
“I haven’t told him yet! That’s what’s funny, ’cause I want Will to see this! He’s gonna be like, ‘What?!’ He’s gonna call me and be like, What the hell is going on over there?!” Pinkett joked. “I didn’t tell him on purpose because I think it’ll be so funny. He does that to me all the time. I’ll sip on my little tea and [watch].”
