Smith shared the video of the moment she and Jasmin saw each other and embraced for the first time in a year. The mother and daughter had missed each other so much they immediately fell into the warm embrace.

While Jasmin looked comfy in black leggings and a hooded sweater, Smith was glammed up in a tan coat, black beret, and chic sunglasses. Both women wore facemasks, with Jasmin wearing an additional transparent face shield.

Smith and Jasmin's reunion came at just the right time as the aspiring young actress celebrated her 25th birthday this month. Jasmin's birth coincided with the rise of her father, Lawrence's fame in Hollywood.

Jasmin scored a small cameo in the film, starring in a scene alongside her father and his costar, Will Smith.

The first "Bad Boys" movie was released in 1995, the year before Smith and Lawrence welcomed their first child. The comedian would go on to star in two more films from the franchise.
