"My son does tap dance and he was wanting to quit and feeling like he just didn't wanna do it anymore," Watts shared. "And I asked [Maddie] to send a message to him. So I videotaped her and she said, 'Kai, don't quit. You've got to give it your all.' It was just really sweet of her to do that and my son was like, 'Ahh!' He was blown away."
The actress is mom to two boys, 9-year-old Alexander Pete and 8-year-old Samuel Kai, whom she shares with her ex-partner, Liev Schreiber. The couple split eight months ago, but they work hard at co-parenting for the sake of their kids.
"They're very sensitive people, they're fantastic little boys," Watts marveled. "But [I've] definitely had other times where you're like, 'Oh I can't do this!' But that's what being a parent is. You know no one's perfect. You do your best though."
