Hilary Duff’s Shares Cute Photo of Son While Away at Work

06/18/2016 at 12:35 PM ET

Mom Hilary Duff really misses her son when she’s away working.

The 28-year-old actress, who is currently staring in TV Land’s hit series Younger, posted an adorable photo of 4-year-old son Luca Cruz on Instagram Friday night — his tongue sticking out at the camera.

“No words to describe how much I miss him,” she captioned the photo, adding a broken heart and crying face emoji.

Duff’s message also including encouraging words of support to other working mothers.

“To all you hard working moms out there working tirelessly to support your kids,” she wrote. “…Missing them…. Keep kicking ass, your kids are watching and will thank you someday.”

“#tryingtokeepmymindright,” she added.

In February, Duff came clean to Redbook about the struggles of being a single mom with a career in Hollywood.

“It’s hard to say that you really can have it all,” the former Disney Channel star said. “I think you can to a certain degree, but fully loaded, pedal-all-the-way-down is tough. You’re missing out on something, either on the career or on the family.”

“When I’m really busy with work, I feel extremely guilty, she added.

Duff’s still found a way to create picture-perfect memories with her young son, which she regularly shares on her social media profile.

The actress co-parents with her ex Mike Comrie. The former couple, who split in early 2014 but finalized their divorce in February, came together to help Luca celebrate in his 4th birthday last month.

Comrie, 35, posed with Duff and their  happy little boy – who wore a cool dinosaur tee for his big day.

“We are a unit and we’re going to be a unit for the rest of our lives,” Duff told PEOPLE of co-parenting in April 2015.
