Watch: Will Smith Talks Mending Relationship With Oldest Son

50-year-old Hollywood actor, Will Smith got teary-eyed as he opened up about salvaging his once-tense relationship with his oldest son, Trey.

The multiple award-winning actor in an Instagram post yesterday, November 27 shared with fans how he and Trey worked on their relationship after years of estrangement.

Smith who has 26-year-old Trey with his with ex-wife Sheree Zampino, was seated in a hotel suite in the clip, which also featured a montage of photos of Trey.

“So I’m in Abu Dhabi at the F1, I brought my son Trey,” the Concussion actor said. “We’ve been hanging and I usually take my kids separately on stuff so they have their individual daddy time.”

He revealed a sentimental statement Trey made to him on the overseas trip.

“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 – I’m pretty sure you’re my best friend,”‘ Smith recalled, getting misty-eyed over the moment. “I was like, yeah man, prolly, prolly.”

Will laid out the circumstances in the caption of the post, writing that “it has not always been like this between Trey & I”.
