As his daughter Willow Smith turned 15 on Halloween, he posted the sweetest birthday message ever on Facebook to celebrate. "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," he captioned a shot of himself holding a baby Willow.
And that was just the beginning. Her mom, Jada Pinkett Smith, also posted a message for Willow's birthday, writing, "I always knew the day would come when you would grow out of your father's ears smile emoticon 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!!!!!" In the photo, an adorable baby Willow is dressed up in a red bikini top and red tassled shorts.

As for what Willow did to ring in her big 1-5, this was the first year she asked her parents not to be involved in it. "She's fantastic and beautiful but this is the first birthday that Jada and I didn't throw a party for her," Will told E! News. When he was asked why they didn't, he said she asked them not to, adding, "I have a 15-year-old daughter!" Will sighed. "I don't even know how that happened."
Whatever went down, she kept it on the low, but she did post a shot of herself Sunday standing with two of her friends in front of Sunlife Organics juice bar in Malibu, Calif. with the caption, "<Willoween Was Trill> // @jairamiller @meccandcheese>." Both of her friends also posted photos and videos of themselves on the beach that day at sunset.
Happy Birthday indeed.
