Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are, once again, proving to the world that their marriage is happy and healthy.
In honor of Jada turning 44 today, Will posted a sweet message with a throwback picture of the couple from 1995 to his Facebook page.
“This was taken at your mom’s house 20 years ago. That’s a long time ago!!! So I decided to do some math…,” he wrote. “I have sung happy birthday to you 20 times and I have bought you 19 birthday presents (I was mad that one year). I have watched you blow out 693 candles (737 after tonite). I’ve told you “I love you” at least 8,285 times. And of the nearly 3.96 Billion women on the planet — there is only 1 that I want to spend the rest of my life with. Happy Birthday, my Love!”

This post is more public evidence that their 17-year marriage is still going strong. The couple, who have two kids together — Jaden, 17, and Willow, 14 — have been defending their relationship a lot over the last few years, following multiple reports of divorce rumors.
Will, who turns 46 on Sept. 25, spoke up about the rumors last month by posting a statement to his Facebook page.
“Under normal circumstances, I don’t usually respond to foolishness. (Because it’s contagious),” the Suicide Squad actor wrote. “But, so many people have extended me their ‘deepest condolences’ that I figured — ‘What the hell… I can be foolish, too!'”
“So, in the interest of redundant, repetitious, over & over-again-ness… Jada and I are… NOT GETTING A DIVORCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!” he continued. “I promise you all — if I ever decide to divorce my Queen — I SWEAR I’ll tell you myself.”

When ET spoke with Jada in June, the Magic Mike XXL star told Kevin Frazier their relationship was not one to worry about. “Just so that you know, we’re not getting a divorce… again!” she joked.
“You’d think people would be rooting for you to stay together, not to break up, you know?” she added. “Will and I love each other so much, and our family and our relationship is so important.”
