PICTURED: Will Smith

WILL SMITH continues to share insight into his life with his millions of Instagram fans - and this time around, the film star got sentimental and discussed the relationship between himself and his oldest son Trey.

Taking to the gram, Smith posted a montage in tribute to his first-born child. He wrote: "It has not always been like this between Trey & I. We STRUGGLED FOR YEARS after my Divorce from his Mother. He felt betrayed & abandoned. It is a Wild Blessing to recover & restore a Loving Relationship with My Beautiful Son! @treysmith0011.”

The 50-year-old actor appeared to be emotional in the video explained that he and Trey were in the United Arab Emirates for the Abu Dhabi Formula One Grand Prix because "usually I take my kids separately on stuff just so they have their individual daddy time."

"So we been doing this, me and him hanging out at the F1," Smith said. "And he just hit me with, 'You know what dad? I just realized you're not just my dad.' He paused and he said, 'I'm pretty sure you're my best friend.'"

"I was like, 'Whew. Yeah, man. Probably. Probably,'" the star said.

Smith was married to Trey's mother, Sheree Zampino, from 1992 to 1995.
