What's better than one Aunt Viv? Two Aunt Vivs.

On Wednesday night, HBO Max released the highly-anticipated Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion special, which was headlined by a face-to-face sit-down between Will Smith and Janet Hubert. The "OG Aunt Viv” departed the series after season 3 and hasn’t been shy over the years when it came to voicing her displeasure with the rest of the cast, including Smith, who she blamed for her exit.

But the duo hashed out their issues in an honest and raw conversation, leading to apologies all around and Hubert getting to join her former costars on their old set. This meant that Hubert and Daphne Maxwell Reid, who replaced the former as Aunt Viv for the final three seasons, met for the very first time. Smith documented the momentous occasion on social media with a video that once again switched them up.

"Two queens, one throne, all love!" he captioned the post.

“Seeing Daphne and Janet, my two moms, the two Aunt Vivs, come together," remarked costar Karyn Parsons, "seeing them meet for the first time and embrace was the most incredible thing." For his part, Smith said on the special of the family healing, “I don’t want to be that guy. I go out into the world and talk about understanding and human relationships and then have somebody that I haven’t spoken to in 27 years. I’m so happy that we were able to make that reconciliation, and I hope other people can take something from it.”
