But Jordyn's decision to appear on Jada's show undoubtedly stems from her deep history with the Smith family, including Jada's husband, Will Smith, and most significantly, their 20-year-old son, Jaden. Jordyn, 21, has been incredibly close to the famous family since she was a baby, which isn't shocking given that Jordyn was born into Hollywood circles -- her mother, Elizabeth Woods, is a talent and brand manager at Mixed Image Media and PR in Los Angeles.
In a 2014 Instagram post, Jordyn shared a sweet picture of Will -- whom she referred to as her "uncle" though they aren't blood-related -- holding her while she was just a toddler.
"Happy birthday to a man who has greatly impacted my life," she wrote. "Love you uncle willy."
Jordyn's close friendship with Jaden continued long after childhood, and also grew to include other famous faces. Jordyn actually met Kylie through Jaden, Kylie explained in a YouTube Q&A with Jordyn last July.
"We met through a mutual friend. [Jordyn] grew up, she’s known Jaden [Smith] her whole life, and then I met him in middle school,” Kylie said. "They were best friends, they still are.”

Jaden has also made sure to support Jordyn's fashion endeavors. He attended the Boohoo X Jordyn Woods Launch Event in August 2016 in Los Angeles, and also attended the launch event of her activewear label, SECNDNTURE, in August 2018 in West Hollywood.
Last July, Jordyn shared another sweet photo of her and Jaden as babies.
"All these years and we’re closer than ever still. no longer teens.. @c.syresmith 20!!! This is only the beginning. Happy birthday my guy❤️❤️❤️ forever and always," she wrote.
Jordyn also got a shout-out from Will when she turned 21 last September. The A-list actor shared the same picture of him holding Jordyn as a child that she shared in her own birthday post to him in 2014.
"I am proud of All that you Are, and excited by the prospects of what you will Become!," Will wrote. "Enjoy your next trip around the Sun... it’s a special one :)."
As of late last year, the friendship between Jordyn and the Smiths was still going strong. In December, Kylie and Jaden playfully fought over Jordyn on Instagram when they both commented on Jordyn's selfie.
"Jordyn Jenner?" Kylie wrote with a ring emoji.
"Nah Nah Nah It's Jordyn Smith," Jaden replied back.
"The Kardashians are upset with Jordyn’s Red Table Talk interview and feel like she should be focusing more on healing her relationship privately with the family or Kylie then talking about it publicly," the source said. "The Kardashian-Jenners have been nothing but incredible to Jordyn and hope she’ll be respectful. They just wish her way of dealing with it was done in a different way."
"If Jordyn doesn’t handle this the right way, any possible hope of her being back in with the family or Kylie will be gone," the source added.
