Will Smith and Jaden Smith attend the LA Premiere of Netflix Films 'BRIGHT' on Dec. 13, 2017 in Los Angeles.

Jaden Smith turned 21 years old on Monday (July 8) and to celebrate, Will Smith went into full-on Dad Mode and uploaded a cute video montage to his YouTube channel.

The video, which clocks in at about 12 minutes, starts out with Will, "Jaden's gonna be 21... That's crazy." Then it jumps into footage of Jaden from when he was a baby up until just a few days ago, on Apple Music's Beats 1 with Zane Lowe. 

We also see old clips from one of Jaden's first birthday parties, his Louis Vouitton line and his chopped hair, which he brought to the Met Gala in 2017 as an accessory. We also see him rocking his Batman suit, skateboarding and Will making fun of his "funky" grills. There's also a section dedicated to his efforts to resolve the Flint water crisis.

"So Jaden, why are you doing so much?" Will asks him in a clip. "Boy, I can see you. Just relax!" 

"Jaden is 100% fearless," Will goes on to say in a different clip. The whole montage really shows just how fearless Jaden is, as he unapologetically rocks out to his own music, auditions for The Pursuit of Happiness, and plays packed shows.
