Naomi Watts is reuniting with her son and it feels good!

On Saturday, June 1, the actress 55, shared a sweet photo of her son Sasha Schreiber, 16, on her Instagram Stories with a message that revealed her excitement about spending time with him.

"He’s back. My heart is pounding,” she wrote over the pic, tagging Sasha's Instagram handle.

The photo showed her eldest child — whom she shares with her ex Liev Schreiber, along with Kai, 15, — walking ahead of her on what appeared to be a New York City sidewalk while wearing a black shirt, cream linen pants and white sneakers.

Back in April, Liev, 56, shared in an interview on Live With Kelly and Mark that Sasha is currently at school in Vermont.

"I just talked to Sasha, who's up at this terrific school in Vermont called The Mountain School, where he's taking care of animals, and he just said that he's bummed out because he's missing being with her," the actor told the hosts during the chat, referring to Sasha's baby sister Hazel Bee, 9 months, whom Liev shares with wife Taylor Neisen.

"They're amazing. Sasha and Kai, you know them. They love her. It's been really great," the actor also said of his two boys.

Watts  — now married to Billy Crudup  — and Schreiber split in 2016 after 11 years together, but remain friends.

"We’re doing things very differently. I’m pretty proud of us, corny as that may sound,” Watts told Net-a-Porter in August 2019. “We’ve made it our absolute priority to be good and kind to each other and we’re absolutely committed to that.”
