Jada Pinkett Smith shared some of her old Christmas traditions and memories with her mother, Adrienne, and her daughter, Willow on the latest episode of Red Table Talk.

“Grant Hill,” Jada said when asked about the first boyfriend she brought home for the holidays. She dated the former NBA player from 1993 to 1995 while she filmed her role on the hit series, A Different World.

Both Jada and Grant went on to marry their current spouses Will and Tamia, respectively.

During the Christmas-themed episode, Jada also shared some Smith family traditions, which include festive pajamas and keeping up her children’s belief in Santa for as long as possible.

Her daughter believed in St. Nick for the most prolonged period.

“Willow got on me. She was like, ‘The worst parenting ever. I can not believe you made me believe there was a Santa Claus and there’s not,'” Jada revealed through bouts of laughter. “She was so upset when she found out there was no Santa Claus, and she was older. I won’t give away how old she was.”

Willow denies being older when she found out. “I was very young, for everyone watching, and then I devoted my life to science.”

The Smith family also discussed other Holiday stories.
