Navigating a partner’s divorce was difficult for Will Smith who split from his first wife, Sheree Zampino, in 1995. The former couple have a son, Trey, and Zampino credited Smith’s second wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, for helping to keep their co-parenting relationship strong.
Zampino told Fox News Digital that while her romantic relationship with Will didn’t work out, they “changed beautifully” into co-parenting.
“I’m not saying it was trouble free and we didn’t encounter any bumps,” the ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star said. “But I think when it comes to co-parenting, you do better, much better in fact, than you do in a marital dynamic. We were put on this Earth to be co-parents. That’s what we did and that is what we do. We love each other and it was amazing. It was a blessing.
Zampino was the first guest to appear on Pinkett Smith’s 2018 Facebook Watch series, “Red Table Talk,” where they discussed their rocky start as Jada began dating Will while he was estranged, but before until he is officially divorced.
“Because I didn’t understand marriage, I didn’t understand divorce, I probably should have backed off,” she said. Zampino jokingly replied, “Do you think so?”
Zampino recalled that Trey first met Pinkett Smith.
“So Trey comes home and I said, ‘How did you like Miss Jada?’ He said, ‘I really loved him, mom,'” Zampino said, which stirred emotions in Pinkett Smith. “Thank you for loving my baby.”
In 2021, Pinkett Smith discussed some of the struggles she’s faced on her motherhood journey, as she also shares son Jaden and daughter Willow with Will.
“I would say being a mom hasn’t been easy, but it’s been worth it,” she said on her talk show. “I would say another challenge was softening my thoughts, you know, the relationship with Sheree and me. It was a real process.”
She added: “When I think about our relationship now, there’s a real sisterhood there, but it took 20 years.
“It was truly a transformation for all of us. To have a blended family and to come to a place where there was ease, that was ease. And have full and total acceptance,” she explained. “For example, Ree has acceptance for me and all my nonsense. I have acceptance for her and all her nonsense.
Zampino also continued to support her ex-husband, sharing a photo of the former couple on Instagram following their Best Actor Oscar win. She didn’t comment on Will slapping Chris Rock at the awards show, but instead praised him and noted that family comes first. “Epic night! Congratulations again – when 1 wins, we all win! #family1st,” she captioned the photo.
