Tori Spelling confirmed her son Liam needed foot surgery.

"It's going to be a long journey, but we take it day by day," she wrote alongside the picture before explaining the teenager had fallen down the stairs at their home and "has been in pain and immobile since."

They waited six weeks, but after there was "no healing" they found out his "navicular accessory fractured bone in [the] right foot" needed to be removed via surgery. The tendon was then "reattached to his main bone with a metal hook rod."

"Thx to everyone for Liam and sending him messages and calls and [heart emoji] and humor before and after his surgery," she said. "Meant a lot to him. He felt so loved."

Back in March, the proud mama took to Instagram to wish her eldest son a happy 16th birthday in a lengthy message.

"I can’t believe today my oldest baby from my belly is 16," she wrote at the time. "Where has the time gone? My Liam Aaron made me a mother for the first time. The moment I knew he was growing inside me my whole life changed. For the better. I knew I’d never be alone."

"I remember moms of older kids would say 'cherish these moments for they are fleeting. They grow up so fast.' And, then just like that I blinked and you are now 16," she continued. "Taller than me. Taking care of me in so many ways. Protecting me. I have to stand on my tippy toes to hug you. But, you’ll forever be my baby."

"I love your strength, humor, quick wit, eclectic taste, heart, kind soul, and the bond we have as mother and son. It’s so special. You are so special," she gushed. "Thanks for choosing me to go on it with you. I love you with all my heart and soul."
