As a child, walking in on your parents having sex can be a singularly uncomfortable and traumatizing experience. Though some children get lucky and manage to dodge it, Willow Smith, daughter of Hollywood superstars Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, wasn't so lucky.

Willow told the story to her mother and grandmother as part of their upcoming Facebook Watch talk show Red Table Talk.
Pinkett Smith later recounted the incident to Vulture:
I realized she walked in on Will and I. We were doing the sex show, I was like, 'What was your introduction to sex?'" Pinkett Smith said while laughing. "She was like, 'Well, you know, me walking in on you and Dad.' I had no idea!
According to Jada, however, Willow's perception of what happened was surprisingly mature:
She was like, 'That’s private time.' She said she didn’t really see anything. But she knew she had just walked in on a very private moment.
Will Smith will be in for quite the surprise when he sees the episode, however. According to Pinkett Smith, he still hasn't seen the episode, and might wish he never had once it airs.
Jada found out through filming the family's new reality show.— THA BEAT CREATORS (@414DocHoliday) May 6, 2018
