The Aladdin star, 50, shared an emotional Instagram video of himself on Tuesday from his Abu Dhabi hotel room, reports people.com.
"So I'm in Abu Dhabi at the F1. I brought my son Trey. We been hanging and usually I take my kids separately on stuff just so they have their individual daddy time," Smith, wearing a white bathrobe, said.
He continued, "So we been doing this, me and him hanging out at the F1. And he just hit me with, 'You know what dad? I just realised you're not just my dad.' He paused and he said, 'I'm pretty sure you're my best friend.'"
The Bright actor got emotional as he pursed his lips and said, "I was like, 'Whoo. Yeah, man. Probably. Probably."
In the caption, the father of three wrote, "It has not always been like this between Trey and I we struggled for years after my divorce from his Mother. He felt betrayed and abandoned." He added, "It is a wild blessing to recover and restore a loving relationship with 'My Beautiful Son!"

Smith married Trey's mother Sheree Zampino in 1992. They divorced in 1995. Despite the split, Smith has remained friendly with Zampino, as has his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.

Change isn’t always easy...Especially when it’s not on your terms. But change is necessary for growth. Even if I didn’t know it then. I’ve always been surrounded by love. But there’s hidden context in this photo. When I look at it, everything falls into place... @shereezampino @jadapinkettsmith @c.syresmith @willowsmith #AcENation #InMyThoughts #blessed #family #TheSmiths

You all call it @redtabletalk but I know it as the kitchen table. At my table, sits my two FIRST RESPONDERS. These two beautiful WOMEN @jadapinkettsmith and @shereezampino redefined strength for me. At times when I thought the flames of uncertainty and doubt might consume me, I realize that God has always had bigger plans for me...They’re always running toward the flames in spite of themselves or their safety. He sent not one but TWO ANGELS. For that I am forever grateful.So...Where does this story end???#AcENation #InMyThoughts #Blessed #Family #SHEroes
