The couple got married in 2000 and celebrated their 22nd anniversary this year.
Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones share the same birthday and they wished each other with warm gestures this year. They posted heartfelt Instagram birthday messages to commemorate the occasion. The couple shares a birth date of September 25, reports PEOPLE. This year, Douglas shared a photo with his wife from when they visited Jama Masjid in India. He wrote in the caption, "Happy Birthday Catherine! I love you always & forever ❤️ @catherinezetajones." His wife also posted a beautiful selfie with him on Instagram with the caption, "It’s our Birthday!! After 24 years of celebrating our special day together, I still look forward to it I love you!!! a la votre!!!!!!!!!!"
Last year, the Basic Instinct star shared a throwback image of the couple captured during the Deauville Film Festival—the occasion where they first met—to commemorate their birthdays. In the picture, Douglas is seated next to Zeta-Jones who sports red earrings and has her hair in an updo. Douglas is dressed in a grey jacket and a purple shirt. The 78-year-old actor wrote in the caption, "My first-night meeting Catherine at the Deauville Film Festival in 1998. I found out that she had the same birthday as me — tadaah! Then when I discovered she loved golf, I realized all my fantasies had come true. I've lucked out at this time in my life."
He added, "I just lucked out. I'm so impressed by her intelligence, sense of humor and work ethic. Happy Birthday Catherine- I love you so much!"
To mark the special day last year, the actress posted a photo she took with Douglas on Instagram. Zeta-Jones is smiling at the camera in the picture while sporting a white top, and her husband is looking at her with love. She wrote in the caption, "Happy Birthday to me. Happy Birthday to him, Happy Birthday to my husband and his wife, Happy Birthday to me, and me, and me, and Michael. Here's to more years that we can celebrate September 25th together. Love you."
The couple got married in 2000 and have two children together, Dylan, age 21, and Carys, age 18. Douglas also has a son—Cameron, 42—with his ex-wife Diandra Luker. While Douglas and Zeta-Jones celebrated 20 years of marriage in July 2020, they did not throw a big party due to COVID-19 social restrictions.
Zeta-Jones told PEOPLE at the time, "We won't be doing any great big party. Not that I'm a big party fan anyway. It would be nice to get all our friends together in one space, but we're not doing that until we're completely out of the woods. So I will raise my mask and let my husband passionately kiss me, then I will put it firmly back on."
