It should go without saying that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are one of Hollywood's best and brightest power couples. He's a fresh prince and she'll never let us look at pineapples the same way thanks to Girls Trip (and Tiffany Haddish).

The couple has been married since 1997, and Will took a moment on Instagram to post a special shout out to Jada. The picture shows a selfie of the two of them with the caption "I just realized...This year we've been together more than HALF OUR LIVES!" 

Will and Jada celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary on December 31, 2017, which of course Will documented in a heartfelt Instagram. In it, he shared some lessons he's learned throughout the years, such as "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."

Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith Through the Years

Recently, Will made some waves after he said in an interview that he and Jada "don't even say we're married anymore." So then what are they if not married?

Allow Will to explain: "We refer to ourselves as 'life partners,' where you get into that space where you realize you are literally with somebody for the rest of your life...There's nothing she could do—ever—nothing that would break our relationship. She has my support till death, and it feels so good to get to that space."

With over 20 years of marriage to their names, Jada and Will have had plenty of opportunities to indulge in some of the best red carpet looks. Keep scrolling below for some of their most heartwarming and PDA-filled moments in Hollywood and around the world.
