Will Smith honored his 20 years of marriage to wife Jada Pinkett Smith in the most adorable way.

The 49-year-old star took to Instagram on New Year's Eve to share a flashback pic of the longtime pair from their wedding day, along with a list of valuable lessons he's learned about love over the years. 

"Twenty Years Ago Today we held hands and walked naively down that aisle. Here’s what I’ve learned since," Smith began. 

"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." 

"I’ve learned to take pleasure in Nourishing YOUR dreams... Rather than wrestling with you to Fulfill my Selfish Needs & Satiate My Insecurities," he continued. "I have learned that Love is Listening. Love is Giving. Love is Freedom."

Smith ended the honest post with a sweet anniversary wish to his queen. 

"Happy Anniversary, My Queen! I am forever Devoted to Nurturing your Deepest Truth."

The couple, who said "I Do" on December 31, 1997, share two children together, Jaden, 19, and Willow,17. Smith is also dad to 25-year-old son Trey from a previous marriage.
