Jada Pinkett Smith: Nutty for Pregnancy
We caught up with the actress at home when she was 7 months pregnant with her second baby.
FP: Have you been nesting?
JPS: I’ve been rearranging the house like crazy. I’m a Virgo, so I’m a perfectionist. Will doesn’t care. He’s like, “Oh, the room’s been painted blue. OK.” He’s not all that attached to material things. I’m lucky to have him as a partner.
FP: You must fight about something.
JPS: Oh, sure. We fight about politics and, you know, everyday squabbles. But before we got married, we made sure we were on the same page about kids and family issues. That’s where we don’t disagree.
FP: Change of subject. We now know that Tipper Gore painted a nude portrait of herself when pregnant. Have you done the nude picture thing?
JPS: I love looking at beautiful pictures of pregnant women, but because of the business we’re in, Will and I are photographed a lot. I look at my being pregnant as something that we can share privately.
FP: Will hasn’t had the urge to bring out the video camera?
JPS: Yeah, but I think we’re going to let this pregnancy just belong to the two of us, with no records at all. Just the beautiful records in our minds.
