After being put in contact with one another by their common friends Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith, Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones first saw one another in person in 1998 at the Deauville Film Festival in Deauville, France. In honor of the birthday of his wife, Catherine, who was born in September 2021, Douglas shared a throwback photo from their first encounter on Instagram with the following caption: “My first night meeting Catherine at the Deauville Film Festival in 1998. I was surprised to learn that our birthdays were the same; hooray for us! Then, when I found out that she was a golf enthusiast, I understood that all of my dreams had come true. I couldn’t have asked for better fortune at this juncture in my life. I simply lucked out. Her brilliance, her sense of humor, and her work ethic are all things that leave me in awe.
As soon as they met, Douglas, who was immediately taken with Zeta-Jones, decided to offer her a prophetic message. He said in an interview with Today, “I most likely committed a serious error.” But I went to her and told her, “I simply want to tell you, I’m going to be the father of your children.” She stared at me like I was crazy. Then she turned her head toward me and remarked, “I’ve heard a lot about you…. I think it’s all true! Good night.'”
Despite this, Douglas’ initial swing and miss was overcome by the couple’s undying love for one another, and they married the wedding in November of 2000. They had their first kid in August of 2000, a son who they called Dylan Michael Douglas. Two years later, in April of 2003, they welcomed their second child, a daughter who they named Carys Zeta-Douglas.
Even a cursory examination of Douglas’ Instagram account is enough to demonstrate the depth of his affection for his family. He never misses an opportunity to celebrate important life events, such as birthdays, anniversaries, or graduations. It is clear that he takes great satisfaction in his children’s accomplishments as well as in Zeta-Jones’ initiatives from the thoughtful and kind notes that he writes to accompany the images of his stunning family.
On September 25, 2022, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones celebrated their birthdays together. That day, the actor became 78 years old, while his wife turned 53.
