“Yo, so I’m in Abu Dhabi at the F1. I brought my son Trey,” Will says, acting as the video’s narrator. “We’ve been hanging, and I usually take my kids separately on stuff so they have their individual daddy time. 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.'”

I’m not crying — there’s something in my eye.

Trey recently posted his own sweet Instagram photo and caption. “WE always have the BEST time,” Trey wrote. “Laughter is the best medicine. What do you think my dad @willsmith said? Best caption wins!”
What Will said to Trey remains a mystery — but what we do know is that they totally embody #FamilyGoals.
