Will Smith and his first son Trey Smith have a strong relationship now, after struggling to get on the same page after Will’s divorce.
On Tuesday, Will shared a video of him discussing the quality time he has been spending with his eldest son. “I’m in Abu Daubi at the F1, I brought my son Trey. I usually take my kids separately on stuff just so they have their individual daddy time,” the actor said.

The fans expressed happiness to hear that the award-winning actor and his son were able to come together.
“Man I almost shed a tear for you.. as a father, I know that meant a lot from where y’all have come from 💪🏾 that’s tough”
“Truth. A good father is finally realized by the words of honor coming from their grown child’s heart.”
“Im pretty sure you did a great job as a father to deserve the recognition from your child..God bless you both 🙏”
In the caption of the video, he also opened up about why their relationship hit a snag. “It has not always been like this between Trey & I. We STRUGGLED FOR YEARS after my Divorce from his Mother.”
He went on to write that Trey felt abandoned and that its a blessing that they were able to patch things up. ” He felt betrayed & abandoned. It is a Wild Blessing to recover & restore a Loving Relationship with My Beautiful Son! @treysmith0011.”
