The 'Independence Day' star is the guest of honor for the special Father's Day edition of his wife Jada Pinkett Smith's Facebook Watch show 'Red Table Talk'.

AceShowbiz - Will Smith fought back tears as he recalled becoming a dad at 24 during a Father's Day special edition of his wife's Facebook Watch chat show.

The movie star was Jada Pinkett Smith's guest of honour for the special episode of "Red Table Talk", which was taped this week ahead of the holiday on Sunday, June 21.

The "Independence Day" star welled up as his wife asked him to recall what becoming a dad so young meant to him, stating, "I just cried so hard. It makes me teary right now...".

With tears in his eyes, he told his wife, "I'm gonna have to walk this one off."

There was another emotional moment when Jada told Will, "You're really a great father", prompting the actor and rapper to lean in for a hug and thank her for the remark.

Talking about their own parenting journey, Jada added, "It hasn't been easy, but it's definitely been worth it."

Will has a 27-year-old son, Trey Smith, from a previous relationship, while he and Jada share son Jaden Smith and daughter Willow Smith.

During their candid chat, the "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It" hitmaker also told Jada about his split from ex-wife Sheree Zampino in 1995, when their son was just two years old.

"Divorce was the worst thing in my adult life," he said. "Divorce was the ultimate failure for me.

"I've been hurt a lot in my adult life, but I don't think anything touches the failure of getting divorced from my two-year-old son's mother... With Sheree and with Trey, that was a really difficult time."

Will went on to marry Jada in 1997.
