Will Smith Cracks Awkward Joke About Jaden Not Having Children On His 25th Birthday – Crossing the Line or Just Harmless Banter?

Will Smith’s recent attempt at humor has raised eyebrows and left many questioning his choice of words. On his son Jaden Smith’s 25th birthday, the actor took to Instagram to tease him about not having any children yet. And some fans find it…odd. More inside..

Will Smith has an interesting sense of humor.

On Jaden Smith’s 25th birthday last Saturday, the Oscar winner playfully joked on his son for not having become a parent yet, creating an awkward moment for some.


Sharing a black-and-white photo of the two, the Emancipation star awkwardly joked, “Happy Birthday, J-Diggy. It’s crazy that you’re 25?!?! When I was 25 I had a 2 yr. old… I’m just sayin’… Wha’s up? What you doin’ over there?

The 54-year-old actor concluded, “BTW, this is my favorite picture of us.”

Y’all know the internets LOVE to create a week-long debate about anything related to relationships and parenting.

Fans wasted no time in calling out the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” star’s peculiar comment, telling him to chill on manifesting grandkids.

One person responded, “Topical [sp] black parent [laughing emojis] my mom reminded me recently that at my age she has all 6 of us lolol.”

Another fan pointed out that “kids shouldn’t have kids.” Check out more reactions below:

Jaden’s grandmother, Adrienne Banfield Norris (aka Gammy), commented on Will’s post with the response, “He’s smarter than you,” while Jada Pinkett-Smith shared a heartfelt tribute to her son, accompanied by a sweet throwback photo.

“Happy 25th Birthday my sweet, sweet Jaden!,” she wrote.

Over the weekend, Jaden celebrated his birthday with family and friends, including longtime friend Jordyn Woods.



Para celebrar o aniversário do Jaden, a família e os amigos fizeram um brunch + pool party e uma sessão no cinema particular dos Smiths para assistir “Missão: Impossível – Acerto De Contas”, que ainda não estreiou nos cinemas, mas Tom Cruise enviou à Jaden de presente!

Fun times.

While the Bad Boys 4 star shares Jaden and daughter Willow, 22, with Jada, and has an older son Trey, 31, from a previous marriage, it seems he was hoping for some grandchildren in the near future.

As the focus shifts to Jaden’s personal life, it remains unclear whether he is currently single or dating. Over the years, he has been linked romantically to various names, including Sarah Snyder and Odessa Adlon. In 2018, Jaden even jokingly claimed to be in a relationship with rapper Tyler, The Creator. 

Do you think Will crossed the line with his Instagram joke or was it harmless banter?
