Throwback Thursday is in full effect! My favorite, favorite Hollywood family..The Smiths have been busy promoting for their new movie After Earth. But now is a time to reflect on the early days of The Smiths. When Jada Pinkett Smith joined Instagram she posted a few never before seen pictures from her personal album. From the day Willow was born to the blended family photos shoot with Will’s ex-wife Sheree Fletcher and their son Trey. So sweet!
….And for expecting moms that are curious to know how she handled her pregnancy, she did an interview with Fit Pregnancy while she was 7 months pregnant with Willow:
On her pregnancy with Willow she said:
Well, I don’t feel as big as I felt with my son, Jaden, when I was one big walking Chicklet. I gained 50 pounds. I’m telling you, my thighs spread. Everything spread. It helps that Will loves me pregnant, so he makes it easy. He knows about mood swings. He knows when to back off. He knows how to get me in a better mood. He’s got it down!
A couple of weeks ago, I suddenly got overwhelmed that I was bringing another baby into the world, all that responsibility. So I cried. But I think crying is healthy. I cry every day. To me, crying is like taking a yoga class. It keeps you in touch.
On whether Willow was planned
[She was] An oops baby. I was starting to wean Jaden, and I’d only had one cycle, so I thought I had some time. Then I got my surprise.
On breastfeeding Jaden:
[I breastfed] a good 18 months. That baby never even saw a bottle. He went everywhere with me — premieres, award shows. I would just find a back room and hook him up.
On whether she had planned to video tape the pregnancy
Because of the business we’re in, Will and I are photographed a lot. I look at my being pregnant as something that we can share privately.I think we’re going to let this pregnancy just belong to the two of us, with no records at all. Just the beautiful records in our minds.
