Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas both have birthdays on the same day, so there was a double party in honor of both of them.
Fans were thrilled when the long-term pair posted birthday greetings, birthday images, and birthday tributes on Instagram. They also wished each other a happy birthday.
Throwback photos from the first time they met were shared on Instagram by Michael, who was the first to publish one of these.
The happy-looking pair seemed to be in their early twenties, and the actor from Basic Instinct provided extra context for the photo in the caption: He wrote about the first time he met Catherine, which was during the Deauville Film Festival in the year 1998.
“To my utter astonishment, I discovered that we had the same birthdate! After that, I found out she was a golf enthusiast, and I knew that all of my dreams had come true.
“I couldn’t have asked for better luck at this juncture in my life. I simply lucked out, her brilliance, her sense of humor, and her work ethic all leave me with a profound impression. Best wishes for your birthday, Catherine! I adore you so much! @catherinezetajones.”
After that, she went on Instagram and wrote her own gushing message, which she accompanied with a picture in which Michael was looking at her with adoration.
Her message wished him a happy birthday and said, “Happy Birthday to me. Happy Birthday to him, Cheers to many more years in which we may all get together to celebrate September 25! Love you.”
Their supporters enjoyed their conversation and left comments such as “lovely pair” and “wonderful.” Additionally, several of them wished them a good birthday.
Carys, 18, and Dylan, 21, the couple’s children, provide them great joy and make them proud parents. Fans were blown away when Catherine surprised them with a snapshot of them, which showed how much they’ve grown.
A warm and sincere statement accompanied the photograph that Catherine had given of her children.
“Today is the first day of college for a first-year student and a senior student, Savor each and every moment,” she added. “I want you to know that I adore you and that I am very proud of you.”
Her followers made comments about how much they resemble her and complimented her for having two children who are self-assured and successful in their endeavors.
