Will Smith posts sweet tribute to daughter Willow on her 15th birthday

Will Smith fans got an especially sweet treat on Halloween, when his daughter Willow celebrated her 15th birthday.

"Happy Birthday, my Bean," reads the caption of an adorable throwback photo posted to Smith's public Facebook account Sunday. "When you were born it took about 2 seconds to realize that I was willing to die for you. Thank you for correcting my heart — and teaching me how to love without constriction or condition."

In the adorable outdoor photo that appears to be taken away from the public spotlight, Will grins while holding young Willow, who smiles for the camera. Posted at the stroke of midnight Sunday morning, the photo collected nearly 2 million Facebook likes within 36 hours.

The moment captured in the Throwback Sunday pic was by no means the last time Willow has accommodated a camera lens. Much like her parents Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith, Willow has since become a mutifaceted entertainer in her own right: In addition to her breakthrough as a recording artist ("Whip My Hair"), she's since added model (signing with The Society) and actor ("Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa") job titles to her résumé.
