'Twilight' actor Taylor Lautner's latest Instagram post stands as proof that he is a caring big brother. The 26-year-old actor recently shared a picture of him with his 20-year-old sister Makena celebrating her recovery. Lautner's sister just underwent another heart procedure at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and the actor couldn't contain his happiness about her speedy and successful recovery in the hospital.

In the sweet snap, Lautner can be seen kissing Makena's forehead as she lay on the hospital bed. He captioned the picture, "2nd heart procedure is finally a MASSIVE success. Couldn’t possibly look up to this little/not so little girl anymore. You are much braver than I @makenalautner.. Love you so." 

Makena too posted a picture on Instagram echoing similar emotions. The picture shows a smiling Lautner sis in a blue striped hospital gown looking radiant and happy. "2nd heart procedure was a huge success! It couldn’t have gone any better. God answered 3 years of prayers today more than any of us could have ever dreamt of," she wrote. 

Taylor also shared an Instagram story of his sister leaving the hospital. He said, “And she’s free,” on the picture. Although the reason for surgery is undisclosed, she appears to have been in the hospital for a while. Taylor has been posting pictures of them together for quite some time, all the while saying things like "miss you." It also appears that she was in the hospital for her birthday. In July, Taylor posted two adorable throwback photos of himself with Makena.

In the first shot, the two of them can be seen chilling in their PJs and grinning from ear to ear. In the second shot, they appear to be a little older.

Taylor has some seriously cool spikes going on, and Makena looks super happy as she stood next to her big bro. He captioned the photo, "Happy 20th BIRTHDAY to this cool cucumber who inspires me every single day. One day I hope to grow up as cool as you. Love you more @makenalautner." Aww. 

It's been a tough year for Taylor. He lost his dog Roxy in February earlier this year. He posted a picture of himself kissing his pooch as he held her in his hands. She was 13 years old at the time. He captioned the photo, "Roxy, my family surprised me with you on the set of 'Shark Boy and Lava Girl' in 2004. You have brought so much joy into my life for the past 13 1/2 years. I’ll miss you every day, but I’ll take those memories with me everywhere I go. I love you."
