The doting grandfather really loves spending time with his granddaughter.
Actor Michael Douglas enjoys spending time with his family. The Fatal Attraction actor recently celebrated the fifth birthday of his granddaughter. To commemorate the event, the family gathered, and Michael's wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, posted a photo of her husband holding their granddaughter on her Instagram Story.
The happy parents of Lua also posted a picture of their daughter having fun on a swing. Her mother expressed her unending love for her and best wishes for the coming year, with the caption, "Happy Birthday my princess!! I love you so much. Best wishes in this new year!" The proud grandmama Catherine adores her grandchildren. She left a comment on the photo, expressing love for Lua, "Happy Birthday to our beautiful, smart, funny and never ever naughty Lua!!!! We love you, your Zeze."
Lua Izzy Douglas, daughter to Cameron Douglas and his partner Viviane Thibes, is featured on the grandparents' Instagram accounts quite frequently. The grandparents, or Bubu and Zeze as the toddler refers to them, are frequently seen coddling the child. On the power couple's shared birthday, Viviane posted a photo on her Instagram appreciating the grandparents with a photo of Michael adorably looking at his granddaughter while he was holding her.
The Oceans Twelve actress shared a photo on her story in 2020 of the adorable toddler Lua wearing sunglasses and a hat, sharing how much fun she was having caring for the toddler. The actress praised her granddaughter in the post's caption, which read, "My love. Lua Douglas. Rockin' it!!!"
A source shared with Closer Weekly that the doting grandfather really loves spending time with his granddaughter. “Becoming a grandfather has made Michael a ‘warmer’ man,” the source shares, adding that his granddaughter, Lua, and his grandson, Ryder, have “had a positive effect” on the actor. “Michael is obsessed with Lua and tries to see her whenever he can,” the insider shared. “He’s certainly an entertaining grandfather and takes such pleasure from making her laugh by pulling a silly face, playing the tickle spot and chase. He turns into a big kid himself and feels young again.”
The source also shared that the actor was extremely excited to meet his second grandchild, Ryder when he was born. “Michael couldn’t wait to meet his new grandson, Ryder,” the source dishes. “His heart melted when he first set eyes on him. Ryder is definitely a ‘Douglas’ – you can already see similarities between him and Michael.”
The devoted grandfather had his son Cameron with his ex-wife Diandra Luker, and wanted to start concentrating on "rebuilding" his relationship with his son as he gets older. Because Michael was "at the height of his career during Cameron's childhood," he spent a lot of time away from home and "traveling to different locations."
“He regrets not being around for Cameron and has his heart set on making up for lost time, [which includes] spending time with his grandkids, Lua and Ryder,” the source tells Closer, adding Michael is so proud of how far Cameron has come. “Michael is delighted to see him settled, happy and grounded,” the insider notes. “And he thinks Viviane is great. He’s seen such a positive change in Cameron since she came into his life.”
