This coming December, Will Smith and Jada Pinket Smith will celebrate their 15th wedding anniversary. The key, according to Will, is being supportive of each other.

“What’s helped us is being supportive,” the Men in Black star tells People. “No matter what the situation is. I’m so lucky to have someone like Jada. She’s really an incredible woman, wife and mother.” He loves that Jada is “absolutely hardcore, like she absolutely is unfazed by the weight and the pressures of life. She is so calm and cool and easy in any situation. She can bear anything, and I just love that about her.”

Together they’re raising three kids, Trey, 19, Jade, 13 and Willow, 11. Over the years they’ve made family a priority. “Being there for each outer and being present for our kids is the most important thing. I take being a parent very seriously.”

In recent months both Will and Jada have been open about their love and romance. Jada even went so far as to dedicate a song to Will. “This song that I’m about to sing is very important to me because it’s the beginning of a new love for my husband,” said Jada during the intro to “Burn.” “After 17 years, I never thought I could love him even more.”
