Naomi Watts’ super rare shout-out to her eldest son not only makes people question where the time has gone, but it also shares some really sweet facts about their ultra-private relationship.

On July 26, the Mulholland Drive star shared a series of photos of her son Sasha to her Instagram for his 16th birthday (seriously, where did the time go?!) She shared the photos with the super-sweet caption reading, “Happy 16th to my darling boy. I cannot believe how fast this happened?! Beyond proud of the young man you’ve become with the most wonderful spirit, fantastic sense of humor and kind, compassionate soul. So lucky i get to be your mum.
