Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith are continuing their PDA parade -- because nothing says "I love you" in the digital age quite like a gushy social media shout-out.

The "Gotham" actress took to Facebook to wish her husband of nearly 17 years a very happy 47th birthday, much in the vein that the "Suicide Squad" star tallied his love for his wife last week for her 44th birthday.

"I'm not going to pull out the calculator like you did but know this... you have a 100 percent of my heart and the rest of my days... Happy birthday, you exceptional man," Pinkett Smith wrote, sharing an adorable baby picture of the "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" alum.

Meanwhile, Smith's post last week counted moments from birthdays past and "I love yous" uttered during their long-term relationship, which was rumored to be on the rocks over the summer.

"This was taken at your mom's house 20 years ago. That's a long time ago!!! So I decided to do some math..." Smith said, captioning the throwback photo.

"I have sung happy birthday to you 20 times and I have bought you 19 birthday presents (I was mad that one year)," he wrote. "I have watched you blow out 693 candles (737 after tonite). I've told you 'I love you' at least 8,285 times. And of the nearly 3.96 Billion women on the planet - there is only 1 that I want to spend the rest of my life with. Happy Birthday, my Love!"

The usually private couple have been posting about one another with higher frequency lately after rumors of divorce dogged their relationship in August.

In a rare move, Smith swiftly took to Facebook to shut down rumors of their impending divorce after the gossips speculated that their marriage was a sham and their split was basically a done deal.

"Under normal circumstances, I don't usually respond to foolishness. (Because it's contagious) But, so many people have extended me their 'deepest condolences' that I figured - 'What the hell... I can be foolish, too!'" Smith wrote. "So, in the interest of redundant, repetitious, over & over-again-ness... Jada and I are...NOT GETTING A DIVORCE!!!!!!!!!!!!! : -) I promise you all - if I ever decide to divorce my Queen - I SWEAR I'll tell you myself! #Dumb People Should Have to Wear Scarlet D's"

The "Magic Mike XXL" actress also gave her say on Twitter, writing "My king has spoken."

The couple first met in 1994 while shooting Smith's long-running NBC sitcom, "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." The "HawthoRNe" star auditioned to be his love interest Lisa Wilkes, a role that eventually went to Nia Long. Still, they became friends, dated, then wed on Dec. 31, 1997.

They have two children together, son Jaden, 17, and daughter Willow, 14. Smith has a son named Trey, 22, with his ex-wife Sheree Fletcher.
