Jaden Smith’s 21st birthday celebration was made up of family and close friends—a scene captured in a cute video full of laughs of wisdom shared by dad Will Smith.
The “Soho” rapper turned the big 21 earlier this month, and he celebrated the milestone with a small gathering in Malibu surrounded by an intimate crowd that included his parents, Will & Jada, his siblings Trey and Willow, and close friends like Jordyn Woods.
Of course, the day wouldn’t have been complete without Will sharing some funny anecdotes, including the story of how Jaden was apparently conceived.
Let’s just say it included tequila, a villa in Mexico and a good time.
“It’s like having Christmas without telling the story of the nativity,” Will teases in the video.
Naturally, the video was full of Will-isms — nuggets of wisdom that have made the Aladdin star famous. Our favorite was a piece of advice that Will’s father shared with him on his own 21st birthday: “Never break two laws at one time. Because you increase your chances exponentially of being caught for both.”
Ultimately, the father-son duo shared their first drink together, with Will giving a beautiful tribute to his son:
“You just make us proud every single day. So here’s to your 21st birthday, and here’s to you being a full grown man,” Smith toasted Jaden. “And here’s to being off my insurance. Here’s to paying your own bills. I’m gonna have the accountants transfer all your stuff first thing tomorrow morning.”
Happy belated 21st birthday, Jaden.
