On Friday, the veteran actor marked the couple’s 22nd anniversary on Instagram by sharing retro photos from their wedding day, gushing about his Oscar-winning husband and their long-lasting romance.
“Happy Birthday to my dear Catherine! I love you so much, Douglas caption the moving pole.
The snapshots show the lovebirds laughing and kissing during a champagne toast.
Douglas and Zeta-Jones have two adult children: son Dylan Michael Douglas and daughter Carys Zeta Douglas. The ‘Fatal Attraction’ actor has another grown son, Cameron Douglas, from his first marriage to ex-wife Diandra Luker.
The Academy Award winner got engaged to Zeta-Jones on New Year’s Eve in 1999 while traveling to Aspen, Colorado. A year later they got married.
“Love is an extraordinary feeling that comes from the depths of your soul, but it must be cherished,” he said at the time. “What I’ve learned about getting older is that you can’t take love for granted. You protect it, nurture it and it grows and after one’s initial physical-emotional aspects it gets deeper.”
As for what Zeta-Jones believes helped the Hollywood couple stay together for so long, she told WSJ. Magazine last year she “respect each other’s space” and maintain a “long-lasting” humor.
