Will Smith reminds us that it’s our job as parents to gross our kids out

If there’s one thing kids don’t want to hear, it’s the where, when and how they were conceived. And this goes for grown kids as well as little ones, right? But there’s something about being a parent that gives you a strange urge to embarrass your offspring now and again — demonstrated perfectly by Will Smith at VH1’s Mother’s Day special, Dear Mama.

Smith, 47, attended the event with wife of almost 20 years Jada Pinkett Smith, 44, their children Willow, 15, Jaden, 17, and his son from his first marriage to actress Sheree Zampino, Trey Smith, 23.

Will and Jada have been married for almost 20 years, and the actor clearly likes to reminisce about those early baby-making years — whether or not his kids are within earshot.

“I’m not gonna be silly. I’m here to honor you,” he told the crowd. “Just watching the piece with the kids, it just takes me back to when we made them. Can’t help but think about that. It’s just amazing. It’s like, you take Jada Pinkett Smith and an obscure town in Mexico and some tequila, and you end up with great kids!”

If you think that’s TMI for his audience, imagine how his kids reacted. We’re cringing right along with them, but let’s face it — doesn’t being a parent give you carte blanche to make your children a little red-faced sometimes?

The Concussion star went on to praise his wife, saying, “Jada is magical. Part of why I love her is things happen in a way they shouldn’t happen, they shouldn’t go that way. She has this magical power.”

Did Jada’s magical power have anything to do with the conception of her two children? Maybe so. One thing’s for sure — we’ll all know what these two are up to the next time they take a Mexican vacay.
