Will Smith's Heartfelt Message To Willow On Her 15th Birthday Reminds Us Why Father-Daughter Relationships Are The Best

So sweet.

A Plus is reposting some of our favorite celebrity dad stories in honor of Chicken Soup for the Soul's Project Dad. Watch Donnell Rawlings, Daniel Cosgrove, and DJ Skribble in the premiere on Discovery Life Tuesday at 7 p.m. Eastern.

When Will Smith's daughter Willow turned 15 years old on Saturday Oct. 31, her dad gave her the sweetest birthday shoutout on Facebook. 

He posted a throwback photo of the two of them with the caption, "Happy Birthday, my Bean. 15 years old today!! When you were born it took about 2 seconds to realize that I was willing to die for you. Thank you for correcting my heart — and teaching me how to love without constriction or condition."


Now, everyone on the count of three say "Awwwww."

The picture is just too cute, and shows Will's genuine love for his daughter. Mom Jada Pinkett Smith also chimed in on Facebook, posting another throwback photo of Willow. Her post shows off one undoubtable physical attribute Willow and Will share — the adorable ears. 

"I always knew the day would come when you would grow out of your father's ears :)," writes Jada on Facebook. "You are everything and more I imagined a daughter of mine to be. Keep pioneering, keep shining and know… your mother loves you. Happy Birthday Willowbean. You're 15!!!!!" 

Double "Awwwwwwww."
