Did You Know That These 8 Celebs Were Raised By Their Stepmom?
- Stepparents are often thrust into the middle of a family dynamic (blended families can take work) that’s been in place for years.
- And sometimes, kids may even resent their stepparents for the change resulting in a pretty bad rap.
- After all, the words “evil” and “stepmother” often go hand in hand.
- But, being a stepparent isn’t all bad.
Many celebrities are pros at being stepparents and some celebs are themself raised by stepparents.
So, here are some celebrity kids who are raised by their stepmoms.
Jada Pinkett Smith is stepmom to Trey Smith, son of Will Smith and his first wife, Sheree Fletcher. Although Jada has revealed she and Sheree haven’t always had the best relationship, she was clear that her relationship with Trey is a good one.

she captioned an Instagram photo of her and Trey.
