Jaden, 17, and Willow, 15, filmed the video memo with their half-brother for a VH1 special titled Dear Mama.
“Whenever I have a problem or something that I feel like I can’t figure out, I’m always like, ‘What would Mommy do? How would she approach the situation? What would Jada do?’” Willow says in the clip. “I just want to say that I love you, Mom, so much. You’re the guide of my heart, my soul, my mind. I love you so much and Happy Mother’s Day!”
Jaden then says, “I wouldn’t be the way that I am without you, so [there’s] no way for me to really express to you, or to anybody, how I truly feel about you because it’s not a feeling, it’s the living of my life that’s an expression of you.”
He adds, “I just wanna take this time to say that I really, really love you and that the way that I feel about you is just unconceivable to me and to you and that I’m always gonna be here for you and I’m so glad that you’re my mom.”
Trey, Will Smith’s 23-year-old son with ex-wife Sheree Zampino, also praises Jada with a loving message, saying, “Honestly, Ma, like, I literally appreciate you so, so much. I’m so blessed to have you as my bonus mother in my life. Thank you for being you, Ma. I love you.”
Earlier this week, the entire Smith family walked the red carpet to honor the matriarch at an event in NYC, where the clip originally debuted.
Dear Mama airs on VH1 Sunday at 9 p.m. ET.
