Will Smith is just an amazing dad.
Last night the legendary actor took to his Instagram to share a heartwarming video in which he revealed that his oldest son Trey called him a “best friend,” after everything they had been through.
So I’m in Abu Dhabi at the F1. I brought my son Trey. We’ve been hanging and I usually take my kids separately on stuff so they have their individual daddy time,” said the actor in the post, adding, “So we’ve been doing this, hanging at the F1, and he said, ‘You know what dad? I just realized you’re not just my dad.’ He paused and said, ‘I’m pretty sure you’re my best friend.'”
At this point, Smith’s eyes looked like they were welling up with tears, as he exhaled and added, “I was like, yeah man, prolly. Prolly.”
He had divorced Trey’s mom, Sheree Zampino, and it took years to mend his relationship with the son they share.
“It has not always been like this between Trey & I,” Will wrote as the caption of the video. “We STRUGGLED FOR YEARS after my Divorce from his Mother. He felt betrayed & abandoned. It is a Wild Blessing to recover & restore a Loving Relationship with My Beautiful Son!” he concluded.
