Will Smith may be one of the newest stars to Instagram but his posts are already worth a follow especially after his heartfelt tribute to Jada Pinkett Smith in honor of their wedding anniversary earlier this week.

The iconic actor took to his social media on Monday, January 1 to share a sweet post for his 20th anniversary to the gorgeous actress. The 49-year-old shared a throwback photo of the two holding hands on their wedding and began the caption. “20 Years Ago Today we held hands and walked naively down that aisle. Here’s what I’ve learned since.”

He continued, “Love is Like Gardening… I have learned to focus on HELPING you to BLOSSOM into what YOU want to be (into what you were born to be)… Rather than Demanding that you become what my Fragile Ego needs you to be.”

Smith shared more lessons he has learned about love over the years, adding, “I’ve learned to take pleasure in Nourishing YOUR dreams… Rather than wrestling with you to Fulfill my Selfish Needs & Satiate My Insecurities. I have learned that Love is Listening. Love is Giving. Love is Freedom.” He concluded with, “Happy Anniversary, My Queen! I am forever Devoted to Nurturing your Deepest Truth.”

The popular Hollywood couple first met in the mid-’90s when Jada Pinkett Smith auditioned for the role of one of Smith’s love interests on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air but was deemed “too short” to play opposite the 6’2″ actor. That didn’t stop their romance from blossoming off-screen however and the pair were married on December 31, 1997, and are parents of Jaden, 19, and Willow, 17.
