How Old Is Willow Smith?

The Smith family is full of skilled actors and musicians. Willow Smith started to follow in her parent’s footsteps when she was young.

Fans know her for her music and her activism. She has a great relationship with her parents and brother, especially her dad

Smith celebrated her birthday this past October, which happened on Halloween. She decided to do something special now that she is no longer a teenager. So, how old is Smith? 

Willow Smith’s family and friends

Smith comes from a family of celebrities. Her father is award-winning actor Will Smith, and her mother is actress Jada Pinkett Smith. Her brother is Jaden Smith, who many people know for his music and tweets. She also developed an interest in music, which likely stemmed from a family of musicians. 

Smith has a close relationship with her parents and shows them support. When news broke out about Pinkett Smith’s affair with August Alsina, both the actress and her husband discussed the situation and their feelings publicly.  

On Red Table Talk, Smith informed her mother that she respects her parents for opening up rather than being upset with them. Smith and her family are quick to overcome struggles. Besides having a good relationship with her family, the singer is friends with other celebrities. 

Smith is great friends with Jordyn Woods and Kylie Jenner. Unsurprisingly, she would make such high-profile connections given her status. When things got tough, she continued to support Woods and Jenner. The singer appears to be a good friend and cares about people.

Halloween is a fun holiday for many people, and Smith has another reason to enjoy that particular day. According to Empire, she was born on October 31, 2000. She left her teenage years behind when she turned 20 years old last month. 

Her mother celebrated Smith’s birthday on social media. She posted a photo of a young Smith dressed as the Wicked Witch of the West on Instagram. In the description, her mother wished her a happy birthday. 

Of course, Smith decided to treat herself in celebration of turning 20. During the evening, she visited a tattoo artist in Los Angeles. Her brother and a cousin accompanied her to the tattoo shop. It would seem that this was her first tattoo. 

The singer made an announcement on her birthday as well. She revealed that she has partnered up with Jahnavi Harrison for an upcoming project. It is possible that this year may have prevented big party plans, so fans will wait to see what Smith does next year. 

A long and successful career

Smith started her career when she was young. According to Glamour, she made her acting debut in the film I Am Legend. Her performance in Kit Kittredge: An American Girl won her a Young Artist Award.  

As mentioned before, she comes from a family of talented artists. Smith picked up an interest in music and showcased her singing talents. Just like with acting, she became a singer when she was a kid. 

In 2010, Smith released her single “Whip My Hair.” It became a hit and launched her singing career. The song went platinum and reached No.11 on the Billboard 100. Since then, she has gone on to produce more music. 

Fame can be overwhelming for some people, especially children. Soon after “Whip My Hair” became a success, Smith struggled with popularity. She once had the opportunity to hang out with Beyoncé but turned it down. Instead, she wanted a moment to be a normal kid. 

She has collaborated with other artists in the past, such as Nicki Minaj. Currently, she is signed to Jay-Z’s label Roc Nation.
