In an exclusive new clip for her Facebook show Red Table Talk, Jada Pinkett-Smith reminds the world she hasn’t always been Will Smith’s better half.
Answering a reader question, she opens up about the first boyfriend she ever brought home for the holidays.
“Grant Hill,” Pinkett Smith, 47, says with a smile, referring to the former basketball star who played for the Detroit Pistons, Orlando Magic, Phoenix Suns and the Los Angeles Clippers throughout his career, which ran from 1994-2013.
The former Duke player, 46, and Pinkett-Smith dated between 1993 and 1995, back when Hill was a rising star athlete and Pinkett-Smith was an actress on A Different World.
In 1999, Hill married Canadian singer Tamia, with whom he shares two daughters: Myla Grace, 17, and Lael Rose, 12.
“He is happily married to Tamia,” Pinkett-Smith notes in the clip. “Happy holidays to that beautiful couple!”
Pinkett-Smith and Will Smith were married in 1997 and have two kids: 20-year-old son Jaden and 18-year-old daughter Willow. Smith also has 26-year-old son Trey from a previous marriage.
