While Jordyn Woods may mostly be associated as being Kylie Jenner’s best friend, and now as the other woman in Tristan Thompson’s most recent cheating scandal, many don’t know she comes from a showbiz family herself. Her mom, Elizabeth Woods, is a talent/ brand manager with her own PR company. Similarly to Kris Jenner and her kids, Jordyn’s mom manages her.
Her dad, who tragically passed away from cancer in January 2017, was a television sound engineer. Because of her parents’ careers, the Instagram model was surrounded by famous people growing up. One of those celebs in particular is Will Smith.
Jordyn has known the actor, 50, from a very young age. She is so close to the Smiths that she considers them family. “Happy birthday to a man who has greatly impacted my life. Love you uncle willy,” she wrote on an Instagram birthday post to Will.
Thanks to her tight bond with the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air alum and his fam, she became close to Kylie. The makeup mogul and Jaden Smith have been friends for years, just like he and Jordyn have, so it’s no shocker they linked up and formed their own squad growing up after Jordyn moved to Calabasas when she was 13.
While some may think Jordyn just recently got into modeling, she actually started at a very young age. She worked as a child model with Ford Modeling Agency when she was 6 years old. As a teenager, she became hooked on Vine and gained recognition.
From there, Jordyn moved on to Instagram, which helped her kick off her career thanks to her large following. That ended up opening doors for her considering she started to receive various offers from modeling agencies eager to work with her.
She has a little sister, Jodie, 13, who she’s pretty close to. The pair could be twins if they were actually the same age. It wouldn’t be totally surprising to see her younger sis follow in Jordyn’s footsteps and become a model herself someday.
