The world of Michael Weatherly is expanding and fans can look forward to more sneak peeks of his life away from the camera.

Taking to X on Wednesday, the NCIS star shared the long-awaited news that he finally has an Instagram account and he launched it with a heartwarming bang. 

Michael put his family front and centre in a beautiful sunset photo featuring his wife, Bojana Jankovic, 40, and their daughter, Olivia.

The news comes at an exciting time for Michael who recently revealed he has plans to reprise his NCIS role one day. 

Michael played Tony DiNozzo on the long-running drama until 2016. 

He responded to a fan on X who asked him to pick his favorite role out of Tony DiNozzo and his Bull character Dr. Jason Bull.

"There will be more DiNozzo someday because he is the one character that felt unfinished," he said. "That's my plan! We shall see."

Michael is passionate about his career but he is also a big family man and told People: "My kids and my marriage are the things I'm proudest of."

"I don't bring my work home," he added. "I'm a single-track-mind person, so at work I do my work, but at home I'm devoted to my kids. Acting has given me a way of understanding myself. It's made me a better person."

Michael also shares a son – August Manning Weatherly – with his ex-wife, Amelia Heinle.
