Even Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s famous, outlandish family isn’t an exception to the universal rule: on a teenager’s birthday, it’s your parents’ duty to shower you with praise, love, and tons of embarrassment.
So when the admirably authentic Smith son, Jaden, turned 17 on Wednesday (July 8), his folks dutifully posted birthday messages for him on Facebook — but they did so with very, very different approaches.
Papa Smith, on the other hand, opted for a more laid-back b-day wish. He shared an adorable throwback pic of toddler Jaden perched in what appears to be a birdcage.
Not to be outdone, Jaden’s sister Willow shared a cool illustration of her big bro on Instagram, which she simply captioned, “CameIntoThisWorld Day.”
