Keeping with his recent trend of casual-comfort, the Braveheart star looked beach-ready in light blue shorts with a black polo-style shirt and tan sneakers.

He added a black and white baseball cap and dark mirrored sunglasses, to help stave off the glaring sun, while sporting a full beard and mustache. 

The actor and director looked liked the dotting dad as he led the way for his boy, who was dressed in dark sweatpants, blue shirt and grey sneakers.

Ross trailed close by, pushing the cart full of food and beverages.

She too kept it casual in faded blue denim jeans with holes in the knees, a black sweatshirt and black slip-on sneakers.

The couple have reportedly been together since 2014.
