Will Smith proved that he is the ultimate father as he watched his daughter, Willow Smith, from the crowd at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Last weekend was celebratory for all things music in Hollywood and even America at large. The Coachella festival was in full effect and it did not disappoint, like it usually doesn't, in bringing some of the biggest names in the music industry and their fans together. 

Willow is one such musician that performed a solo set at the famous California festival. She took center stage at the Mojave Tent, where she welcomed her elder brother, Jaden Smith to sing with her.

As mentioned, Jaden was a special guest during his younger sister’s second set at Coachella. The two performed their single “Summertime in Paris” and they aced it but their vocals and stage presence weren't the only thing making headlines afterward. WWD reported on the edgy style the pair wore to deliver their electrifying performance.

In March, the “Icon” rapper attended the Louis Vuitton Paris Fashion Week show carrying an impressive bag from the brand. The 22-year-old punk rock singer wore a Stella McCartney blazer and cut-out pants, from the brand’s spring 2023 ready-to-wear collection to the “Emancipation” premiere in December.

Although it is rare to see the Oscar-winning actor not gushing about his grown-up children- Trey, Jaden, and Willow- blooming acting or music careers on his social media, there are such moments when he teases and gleefully makes fun of them. 

Last December, The Blast detailed how the doting father invited his kids to take over the “Red Table Talk” at 2 pm but following his invite, he decided to share with his millions of followers the time each of them arrived. 

The” Fresh Prince Bel-Air” alum posted an Instagram reel with the caption, “Let’s see what time my kids get to Red Table Talk.” to show viewers his kids’ punctuality levels. The third child of the four-time Grammy Awards winner was the first to arrive on the set at 12:31 pm. 

Next was Trey, who arrived at 12:46 pm and was referred to as the “Most Dependable Son” by the “I am Legend” actor. Last in line was the 24-year-old, who walked in unbothered at 1:54 pm. in a white shirt, black jacket, and blue jeans.
