NCIS actress Vanessa Lachey has taken to Instagram to share a touching post about her son's sadness over the football results – and we're sure many can relate!

The star, who plays Special Agent in Charge Jane Tennant, posted a screenshot of a series of text messages between her and her children, including ten-year-old Camden, as they discussed whether they could play a round of Fortnite.

The mother-of-three says in one message: "Cam you can't either, school nite [sic]," which prompts her son to respond: "No Fortnite?" Vanessa then decided to give some leeway by replying: "One hour."

Camden then responded: "You don't really realize that I'm still sad about the football game," to which his mom writes back: "I do baby, but Fortnite won't solve anything. Rules are rules."

Meanwhile, the Lachey family recently celebrated their daughter Brooklyn's eighth birthday with a big party complete with delicious treats! Vanessa shared with her fans: "We had a little celebration for the birthday girl. @kinderus birthday packs made party prep fun and easy.
