Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith are used to being in the news headlines, but usually not the way they have been in recent days.

Everything from Pinkett Smith’s battle with alopecia to Will’s official apology has been discussed recently, and now the Internet is realizing something that thousands of people never knew about the Smith family.

“The penny has dropped for social media users as to why Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith named their children Willow and Jaden,” an article from LADBible reads.

Their names are actually something of a riddle, considering that the second generation has something common with their parents that most people never realized.

The Hidden Similarities in Smith Kids’ Names 

It might seem painfully obvious to millions of people, but that’s part of the strange charm of Will and Jada’s kids’ names.

The revelation was made by a Twitter user and has since spread like wildfire.

The rollicking Internet reaction has continued ever since, even though the post has been deleted.
