Chris Rock is giving Will Smith the side-eye after posting a heartfelt message to his ex-wife, Sheree Zampino, and here’s why.

For her 51st birthday on Friday (Nov. 16), Will posted an adorable throwback photo of himself with his ex along with their first child together, Trey, captioning the photo: “Happy Bday, @shereezampino. #BestBabyMamaEver! I Love You, Ree-Ree.”

The famed comedian jokingly mentioned how Jada Pinkett Smith, Will’s wife and mother of his two children, Jaden and Willow, must be very “understanding.”

“Wow. You have a very understanding wife,” he commented on the post.

FYI: Jada also wished Sheree a happy birthday on Instagram: “Happy Birthday @shereezampino! Whew Chile! It’s been a hell of a journey between us and I’m grateful! You have been the provider of many ego deaths and profound lessons. And through it all, I’m so happy we’ve found space to laugh together, cry together and share joy together within our blended family. You’ve been a gift. I’m wishing you the world.”

Sheree happily responded to the couple, “Aww thank you baby daddy! I love you back! And thank you @treysmith0011 for being the reason we came together. And to @jadapinkettsmith for being an understanding, secure and absolutely AMAZING wife, mother, bonus-mom and co-parenting partner!”

ICYMI: Back in May, Jada and Sheree opened up about their once complicated relationship for an episode of Red Table Talk. In October, Will dropped a bombshell on the show admitting he fell in love with his now-wife, Jada, while he was still married to Sheree, who he later divorced in 1995 before marrying Jada in 1997.

While many people are also reading between the lines in belief that there’s a subliminal message in Will’s post, we think it is safe to note that this was just Will’s way of showing love to his first baby mama.

Sheree had the perfect response to Chris in jest, “Don’t hate.”

Now that was straight to the point!

Anyway, happy belated birthday, Sheree!
