Looks like they made it...

On the 20th anniversary of their New Year's Eve wedding, Will Smith wrote a touching Instagram tribute to his wife of two decades, Jada Pinkett Smith, with whom he shares two children Willow Smith and Jaden Smith.

Along with a photo of the couple in their matching winter white wedding ensembles, the Bright star wrote, "The 20 Years Ago Today we held hands and walked naively down that aisle. Here's what I've learned since."

The wordsmith continued, "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."

 

The loving husband mused, "I've learned to take pleasure in Nourishing YOUR dreams... Rather than wrestling with you to Fulfill my Selfish Needs & Satiate My Insecurities."

The A-list actor also included a poem to his bride: "I have learned that / Love is Listening. / Love is Giving. / Love is Freedom."

Smith concluded the sweet post with this, "Happy Anniversary, My Queen! I am forever Devoted to Nurturing your Deepest Truth."

 

Earlier in the month, Smith talked to E! News' Sibley Scoles about his enduring relationship with the actress at the premiere of his new Netflix movie.

He said, "Two decades. When you're married with somebody that long and we were talking about it, we was like, "You know, it's 20 years, what are we gonna do?' She was like, 'We're gonna high-five and keep it moving!'"

As for what happened 20 years ago today at their luxurious and secretive wedding (which happened only a month after the former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star proposed), Pinkett Smith told People back in the day that, "One day we got engaged, and the next day we found out we were pregnant." 

So clearly the two fast-tracked wedding preparations for their big to-do in Baltimore, which featured Jada in a long-sleeved, high-necked, champagne-colored, velvet Badgley Mischka gown and her groom in a matching Badgley Mischka suit.

The lavish wedding was topped off with a midnight kiss, which Jada shared a photo of back in 2012.

Take a look at some of other photos from the longtime couple's lasting love...
