WATCH: Kevin Bacon's pool at Connecticut farm is in the unexpected place

Making a new Olympic sport, Kevin narrated his journey to the board, saying: "Divers are approaching the board in the tandem canine-human diving event. We're going to attempt a dual dive, ready?"

The star and his faithful dog, Lilly, then spectacularly dove into the water as Kyra was reduced to fits of giggles watching the pair.

In a heartfelt caption, Kevin wrote: "Hope you all enjoy the weekend ahead, making those good memories and starting traditions.

"This one with Lilly is one of my favorites. I'm lobbying for a new #olympics event: Tandem Canine-Human diving."

The Apollo 13 star looked incredible in a pair of snazzy swim shorts, that highlighted his very toned physique.

"That's so on point! You have my vote for a new Olympic game," said one, while another added: "10/10 so great to see your dog Lily is part of the act! Good times."

A third commented: "That looks like a lot of summer fun!"

Kevin and Kyra married in 1988, and the pair recently stunned fans when they announced that they would be working together on a brand-new project.

Kevin will be following his wife's orders as he stars in her second directorial feature movie, Space Oddity.
