What's better than one Smith? Five of them. One of Hollywood's most beloved families hit the red carpet at the 26th annual Environmental Media Awards on Saturday in L.A., where they were later joined like major stars like Nicole Richie, Shailene Woodley, and more. Stepping onto the green carpet like the proud parents that they are, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith arrived hand in hand looking as happy as ever. The star couple shone, with Pinkett Smith rocking an all-white suit with a beige top and matching ankle-strap heels while Will kept it dapper in a navy suit. Their children, 18-year-old son Jaden and 15-year-old daughter Willow, as well as Will's 23-year-old son Trey (from a previous marriage) also turned out in sleek looks for the evening. So what was the entire family on hand for? Jaden received the Male EMA Futures Award for his honorable work in making the environment a priority. In his acceptance speech, the young actor thanked Woodley, his "favorite actress in the world" and fellow 2016 Futures Award winner, for her contributions. He also revealed how his passion for the environment began at age 10, for which he expressed appreciation for his family--specifically, his parents--for their support.

Willow, dressed in a sporty ensemble, took a moment to pose with her older brother, too. See more of their too-cute family gathering below--and cue the awws!
The age of the waters was first identified by scientists in 2013, reports the National Post, when researchers ran tests in a mine near Timmins, Ont. and discovered that the water had been isolated from the earth’s surface for up to 2.7 billion years.
