Err… If you thought the Smith kids, Willow and Jaden are weird then you are not far from the truth.
The siblings have snakes as pets and even sleep with them.
According to Us Weekly, there are snakes slithering at the Smith household, where Willow and her brother, Jaden allow them into their bedrooms.
“Willow is obssessed with them,” a source says, adding that 15-year-old Jaden “cuddles” with them in bed.
The source adds, “She has 10 sleeping in her room, and some aren’t in cages!”
The 13-year-old singer is not the only Smith family member who adores the serpents. Her brother refers to his sister’s pets as his “girlfriends”. They slither into his bed and curl up with him.
Willow got her first boa constrictor which she named Beauty, in 2008 when she was just 7 years old.
Their mother, Jada Pinkett-Smith confirmed this in an interview last July.
Willow welcomed her first boa constrictor, Beauty, in 2008 when she was just 7 years old. She explained to Redbook magazine what made her finally cave and allow the reptiles into the home. “I’ve always loved snakes but was afraid of them.”
“But Willow had wanted this one snake forever. She’d go into the pet store and pick it up and wrap it around her. I’d never touched a snake before, and I put out my hand, and Beauty (mimics the snake slithering up her arm). I’ve been in love with her ever since. I said to Willow, ‘You did Mommy a big favor. You helped me overcome a fear.’”
Their dad, Will Smith doesn’t mind the creatures, either. In fact, having snakes in the house is a relief for the actor, who told Ellen DeGeneneres last May that he is terrified of mice.
“I’m good with snakes,” he said. “Willow has a boa constrictor… but mice? Whew!”
