Even with her mature sensibilities, it's hard to believe that Willow Smith is 16 already. Now that the songstress has turned the big 1-6, her mom Jada Pinkett Smith shared a special tribute to her Halloween baby, posting a throwback photo of Willow dressed up for the holiday.

In the throwback snap, little Willow transforms into a vampire in an orange tulle skirt complete with a black bow, and opens up her sheer cape behind her. Given that her birthday falls on the actual holiday, she went all out, rocking white face paint, faux blood around her mouth, and flashed her faux fangs as she posed for the camera.

"To my little princess of all things... you are 16!!!!! I love you my little spooky girl:) You make me so proud. Happy Birthday! Your mom," Jada captioned the photo.

Will Smith also joined in on the birthday tributes, sharing a throwback photo of himself holding Willow in his arms. "My baby is 16 today. I'm still tryna figure out how that happened. I Love You, Bean," he captioned it.

It's not clear just yet if the free spirited teen will indulge in the typical sweet 16 birthday bash. Rather than sharing photos of party prep, the music artist posted a snap of an idyllic setting in Big Sur, Calif., instead. "Home," she captioned the shot Monday.
