Willow Smith revealed to her mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, and her grandmother, Adrienne Banfield Norris, that she is attracted to multiple genders and open to a polyamorous relationship.

On the latest Red Table Talk video, the Smith women dug deep about the concept of multiple partners versus monogamy. As it often happens on the show, the three different generation of women have varying opinions on this controversial topic. Three people who are all a part of one relationship and identify as a "throuple" appeared on the show, and discussed how they make their relationship work. 

The subject matter opened up a conversation in which the youngest of the Smith women shared pieces of her own identity that was met with questions, but ultimately acceptance. By the end of the episode all three women obtained a deeper understanding about what polyamory means and a greater acceptance for unconventional relationships. 

The Red Table Talk always dives deep, and no conversation is off-limits among the three women. 

The series has covered plenty of controversial topics including Jada's sex addiction, her marriage with Will — the good and the bad, Willow's struggle with self-harm and going through a near mental breakdown at nine years old after "Whip My Hair" released. The trio of women cover basically everything, and bring on A-list guests to dig deep about real issues. Jada posted a series of shots from the trio's People cover shoot. The three revealed to the magazine that the show has brought them closer than ever thanks to the open dialogue they have. 

Willow's maternal figures were surprised by but ultimately supportive and accepting of her openness to a non-monogamous relationship.

The youngest Smith women shared her thoughts on traditional marriage and her openness to a polyfidelotous relationship, or a relationship in which you are committed to more than one person. In the episode she shared that traditional monogamy was "fear-based" and that to her, personally, a more free and open relationship is better for her. 

"I really couldn't see myself in a quadrouple. I mean anything could happen. But, personally, male and female that's all I need," Willow said. Jada replied with a laugh, "Well there it is, she said she wants one of each Gam. How does that make you feel? Because, I think my stomach just... Listen, you know me Willow, whatever makes you happy."

Gammy had a harder time accepting, but in the end she came to a better understanding of what it means and said she would continue to love and support willow no matter what

Jada shared some of Norris's highlights from the episode. "I had NO IDEA how funny Gammy is until we started the @redtabletalk. She keeps me roll’n!" Pinkett-Smith wrote in an Instagram post. The oldest of the Smith women definitely had the hardest time understanding how the three would work in a relationship together, but at the end she came to a more concrete conclusion. 

The Smith family has close ties, and Jada even shared that she could compare her relationship with Will's ex-wife to that of a kind of polyamorous relationship.

It comes to no surprise that Willow's family would be supportive of whatever relationship and identity she connects to. Willow's brother Jaden Smith has experimented with genderqueer fashion, and some have speculated about his sexuality as well. The entire family is blended, and they are all close with Will's ex-wife Sheree Zampino. 

Jada said in the episode, "You know what’s so interesting, though? Why it’s so not foreign to me too is that I’ve had a non-sexual throuple for years with Sheree... When you have your husband that is taking care of another woman and spending time with another woman, it’s the same thing."

The throuple that appeared on the show gave a real-life example to the women. 

Jada shared a sneak peek of the episode to her Instagram, and revealed that the conversation was enlightening about the unconventional relationship. "This coming Monday @redtabletalk is talking about Polyamory. This show was deeply enlightening. It dispelled all my misconceptions about Polyamory and it also made me a proud mama for soooo many reasons. I hope you’ll join us to meet our Polyamorous Throuple who I fell in love with. Thank goodness they weren’t looking to add a couple to their trio," she wrote. 

Willow Smith, who is a musician and artist, is unapologetically herself and wise beyond her years. 

Willow struggled with self-acceptance after the drop of her top hit "Whip My Hair," and discussed it openly on the show. Now, she is touring again with new music and a healthier outlook than in her past. 

She shared to her 4.7 million followers that she'd be touring her new album in July. "I am so stoked to announce that my new album <‘WILLOW’> is going to be dropping on July. 19th‼️ Music is such a gift and everyday I feel so grateful for the freedom to create it. This is the first time I’ve ever co-produced an album with one of my closest friends. S/O to @existentialcrisisboy for being instrumental in the creation of my musical vision, GRATITUDE! I will be doing a mini tour in July where I’m going to perform the entire album I AM SO EXCITED."

The three guests that appeared on the show opened up a broader conversation about the Smith women's beliefs on marriage, love, and commitment. 

The three-way relationship said that honesty and a close bond is what makes their unconventional relationship work. While sex is a part of their relationship, the focus that they have on each other is the intimate emotional connection, which is what Willow identified with the most. By the end of the conversation Jada and Willow were on board with the idea, and Adrienne aka Gam at least had a better understanding even if it wasn't the type of relationship for her. 

Most importantly, Willow's mother and grandmother stood behind her in whatever relationship she chooses to pursue in her future.
