Will Smith Shares a Rare Family Photo with Twin Siblings Ellen & Harry

Will Smith is celebrating two very important members of his family this week. His younger twin siblings, Ellen and Harry, officially turned 50 on Wednesday and he made sure to give them a special birthday shoutout on social media.

Earlier this week, the 52-year-old star shared a rare family photo on Instagram featuring himself and the twins with the words “Happy Birthday, Jokas!” written across the top. “My little brother & sister are 50 today! Damn,” he captioned the post.

Turns out, Smith gave his siblings a variety of awesome presents. In fact, Harry shared a sweet thank you to his older brother on his personal Instagram account featuring a slideshow of images of himself celebrating on a yacht in Dubai. Yes, you read that correctly.

He wrote, “A little surprise 50th Bday boating!!! Thanks @willsmith for this wonderful outing and for always being there when I needed you most. I am so blessed to have reached this milestone. I’m super excited about the second half of my life being full of love, light, family, and fun. I want all of you to join me in celebrating this year.”

Ellen also shared a glimpse into her birthday festivities on her IG by sharing a video of gifts, cakes and a ton of flowers. “Yesssss!! Happy birthday to me! This is how it’s going,” she wrote in the caption. “I’m excited about the turnout. #50 and amazing!”
