On keeping her kids fit: “Sitting at home on a Saturday or Sunday was never an option,” says Jada of her own childhood. “[The kids] love to go to the gym with Will and me, but surfing and snowboarding is what we do together as a family for fun.”

On how she and Will keep their marriage strong: “Last week we were stressed out, so I packed a picnic and took Will to a place we hiked to on one of our first dates. We sat and reminisced on that time in our life. Then we went home and made love. Thank God Will has simple tastes. Even the littlest thing for him is like, ‘Wow!’”

On not being queen of the kitchen: “I can’t cook! It’s genetic. My grandmother can’t cook, my mother can’t cook. I was raised to believe you eat because your body needs fuel for energy, so I eat superfoods.” Though she does like to bake, she adds she doesn’t do it often. “[Will] has a horrific sweet tooth. If there’s cake in front of him, he’ll eat the whole thing!”
