Jada Pinkett Smith: Being A Single Mom Is TOUGH — I Need Will Smith!

Tue, September 6, 2011 4:35pm EDT by 12 Comments

Just weeks after rumors swirled that the couple was separating — actress Jada is singing her husband’s praises as a dad!

Jada Pinkett Smith “thanks goodness” that she’s in a loving relationship with husband Will Smith — because she grew up in a single parent family and knows how hard it is to raise kids alone. Do you agree? 

“Thank goodness they have a father and I don’t have to raise them alone,” Jada tells British OK! magazine.”Having been raised by a single mother I’m very clear on what the difficulties of being raised by a single mother are.”

The couple are parents to Jaden, 13, daughter Willow, 10, and Will’s son from a previous relationship Trey, 18.

The whole family was rocked by recent rumors that Will and Jada had separated and were planning to divorce. They denied the claims, insisting their marriage is still “intact” — and Jada tells OK! how important a role Will plays in raising their kids.

She adds, “It’s very hard when you don’t have a male component in the home to create balance and help in the decision making. Sometimes it’s nice to be able to just pass the ball, like, ‘tag, you’re it, you got this one.'”

Is she right, HollyMoms? Share your thoughts.

I am glad to here they are working it out. I cant see Will or Jada with anyone else. I only wish I had the bond they both have about life and they should stay together. I always wanted to be a fly on the wall just to see the two of them together raising a family. All smile and love to them both. CB from MD.

Sandy is correct, it does say Trey is from a previous relationship – however, that doesn’t mean he isn’t like a full child to Jada, that she is “less” responsible for his care or that she loves him less! And they are NOT ugly, lovely family!

Sounds like she’s just being lazy and rather stay in a non-functional relationship so she won’t have to be alone.

I agree about having the father around completely. It’s VERY hard being a single mother. It will be a shame if they can’t work things out..
