Smithfamily July 2 promises to be momentous in the Smith household.  That’s the day father-daughter acting duo Will Smith, 39, and Willow Camille Reign, 7 ½, both open films — Hancock and Kit Kittredge: An American Girl, respectively. When asked by People who will wind up the winner of the family box office showdown, Willow replied "me."

If her prediction holds true, her success would be due at least in part to her dad.  Willow told People that Will gives her plenty of "tips," like "listen to the director and feel the moment."  Willow also gave mom Jada Pinkett Smithwho recently talked about having kids in show business — props for getting her red carpet-ready in capris, a sequined top and Tory Burch shoes.  Said Willow, "my mom helped and the stylist helped."

In addition to Willow, Will and Jada are parents to Jaden Christopher Syre, 10 next month.  Will is also dad to Trey, 15, from a previous marriage.

I have always loved Will Smith…even back in the Fresh Prince Days. LOL

But I just had a serious blonde moment. After all this time, it just ocurred to me that Will and Jada named their kids after themselves….Willow and Jaden. Totally obvious, but I never made the connection before. Too cute.
