Even the most ardent cynic might crack a smile over this one. For those who say romance is dead, look no further than Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, who have withstood the test time. Together, they have emerged as one hip-hop’s essential couples, the benchmarks for romantics across the board. Today, Will has taken to the Gram to press his love on a public forum, essentially the modern-day equivalent to the beneath-the-windowsill monologue, or the overhead boombox classic.
“I just realized,” writes Will, alongside a picture himself and his beloved. “This year we’ve been together more than half our Lives!” Seeing as Will Smith is soon turning fifty, it’s safe to say that the Pinkett-Smiths have enjoyed well over two decades companionship. For anyone looking to hate, you might have to reach deep into the darkest caverns your hearts. For now, celebrate one hip-hop’s iconic couples, and may the Smith family continue to enjoy life to the fullest.
Peep the picture below, and consider doing a romantic gesture for somebody you care about today.
