Will Smith was already married when he realized he was meant to be with Jada Pinkett. The two had met the year prior, and something about Jada made Will sure that she was the one. When his first marriage ended, he pursued the young actress.

After two years of dating, Will asked Jada to marry him. The timing was impeccable, because the very next day, the couple discovered that they were expecting. They had a private wedding ceremony on New Year’s Eve, when Jada was three months pregnant.
