Will Smith’s kids are named Jaden and Willow and people are only just realising why. 

Smith, 54, is one of the biggest actors in Hollywood, having starred in hit films such as Men in Black, Independence Day, I Am Legend and Aladdin.

He also won an Oscar for his part in King Richard, in which he played the father of tennis legends Venus and Serena Williams.

However, his victory was overshadowed by him slapping host Chris Rock after the comedian made a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

The pair have been married since 1997 and share two children together, but fans are only just realising the reason for their unique names.

A Twitter user, who goes by the username @kxngtroopa, posted an explanation of the couple’s kids’ names, explaining that they are actually a clever variation of their parents.

Screenshots explaining it further read: “Willard Oliver Smith Jr and Jada Naomi Pinkett Smith.”

The user then pointed out that these sound like ‘Will O’ and ‘Jada N’.

Many people have responded to the tweet saying they had never realised this before.

One writes: “Please I’ve just realised after your tweet omg. I thought they were just random names.” 

Another adds: “Coworker: ‘Jaden and Willow Smith’s names are like their parents’ names, Jada and Will Smith’. It took me until NOW to realise this.”

Seeing the funny side, a third says: “Wait Jada and Will Smith really named their kids Jaden and Willow… Just said ‘I don’t know, I can’t think of anything let’s just add some letters to our names’.”
