Jaden Smith isn’t a teenager anymore!

In honor of his son’s 20th birthday, on Sunday, proud dad Will Smith shared a sweet throwback photo of Jaden smiling from ear to ear while wearing a Spiderman costume.

“Happy Bday, Jaden. 20 Years Old ~ WHOA!” the 49-year-old actor wrote alongside the snap, before playfully addressing his son’s history of dressing up in superhero costumes — even as a young adult.  

“And Wait… I don’t know what the big deal was when you wore a White Batman Suit to Prom? You have ALWAYS worn superhero suits on your dates!” he continued.

When Jaden was 16, he infamously wore a Batman suit to Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West’s wedding — and he went on to recycle a similar look one year later while attending his high school prom.

Jaden went on to tell GQ that he been dressing up like his favorite superheroes since he was a child, and had a very good reason for revisiting the look when he got older.

“I wore the Batman suit to heighten my experience at the wedding and prom which was fun, but also at the wedding I felt as though I needed to protect everyone there and needed to have the proper gear to do so,” he explained.

You’re still my baby Jaden … I really don’t think that will ever change:) Happy Birthday my love. Thank you for always making my heart smile,” the mother of two wrote on Instagram.

Jaden’s pal Kendall Jenner also wished him a happy birthday, sharing her own series of throwback images in honor of his big day.

“You are a light in everyone’s light” the 22-year-old model wrote alongside a picture of the pair posing together on an airplane. “Keep shining!”

“Jaden and Willow have always been different. They were born that way. A lot of people think that it came from my rearing, but no, it just so happened that that’s how they came into the world and I had to get in order. I had to be open enough to receive it,” she continued.
