“College bound!!! I’m so excited for him, although as his mama, and him being the baby, I’m so 😭. Go @maksim.bure Go!! Be great for God!!” the actress wrote to her 5 million Instagram followers.

Bure later took to her Instagram story to share more information on the emotional send-off of her 19-year-old "baby."

"So we just dropped our youngest, the baby, off at the airport to go to college and I'm very sad that I didn't get to go to take him to college," Bure said according to People.

"I had to just drop him off at LAX, and I'm getting no sympathy from someone," she continued jokingly referring to Valeri, 47. "... I'm still sad! Who's with me?"

She updated fans later in the night, saying "For an update, Maks did not call me when his flight landed," she said. "But I just called him, and he landed safe and sound, and we FaceTimed. And someone's picking him up from the airport, and he's sleeping on someone's couch."

"I don't know! It's the college life, right?" she said with a laugh.

Bure and her husband Valeri Bure are also parents to daughter Natasha, 23, and son Lev, 21.

In May, Bure took to Instagram to share a heartfelt tribute to Maksim on his high school graduation day.

“What a day! My boy. My son. My baby. So proud of you. You have grown so much in character and your love for God,” the proud mom-of-three captioned the photos.

She continued, “Your joy is infectious! You are and have always been such a blessing to us; to be your mama and papa. We are so grateful God gave us to you to be your parents. As well as everyone who has contributed in your journey.”
