It seems like almost every week we are reporting on yet another celebrity breakup, which is why it’s so special when we see a couple that is still going strong despite living their lives in the public eye — and Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith definitely have the recipe for success when it comes to their marriage.
The couple has been plagued by divorce rumors in the past (what celeb couple hasn’t, right?), but they are still very much in love, as Pinkett Smith proved last Sunday with a special tribute to her husband for his birthday.
On Will’s 48th birthday, Pinkett Smith reminded him just how special he is to her (and to so many others) as she took to Facebook to post an old video taken during their trip to Ethiopia — a trip that raised $789,000 for water project costs to give access to clean water.
She captioned the post with, “I saw this video yesterday and it reminded me of all the wonderful ways you and I have made a difference together on this planet. We do so much good in this world together, Will and there is so much more to come. You have been the greatest gift to me in that way, by being a fire of inspiration in my heart.” She finished off with a mention of how much she loves him, writing, “I love you always. To the king of kings…Happy Birthday!!!!”
Fans have been moved by the post and took to the comment section to share their thoughts.
“Thank you both for the example of love & respect for humanity you set for your children and those that follow you all,” Debi Garwol gushed. “We are Blessed to have you all in our world right now.”
Sergio Silva also commented about the couple’s strong marriage: “That’s why god will continue to bless you. Stay blessed please lead by example in Hollywood of the couple that stayed married. Bless marriage is a healthy life in god’s eyes.”
Tanya Peoples remarked on how the couple’s love is an example to so many. She wrote, “Beautiful you both are an inspiration on a lot of peoples not only is your love beautiful and lasting everything you both do with your kids and out in the world. I love you both since before you were together and still to this day.”
At least we can still count on Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith to prove that love does actually exist in Hollywood, right?
