Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas rang in his milestone 101st birthday on Saturday and he celebrated it with his wife Anne, 98, in Los Angeles.
The couple who have been married for 63 years looked very fit and happy as they welcomed guests and posed for photos in matching wheelchairs underneath a stunning 101 floral wreath.
The Spartacus actor and his wife were even able to walk to the end of their driveway to thank the photographers who extended birthday wishes to the Oscar-winning actor. Kirk donned a navy blue cardigan and black trousers for his birthday as he joined his actress wife, who was clad in a pastel pink ensemble for the special photo.
Speaking about the couple’s happy marriage in an interview with Closer Weekly for his 100th birthday Kirk said: “I was lucky enough to find my soulmate 63 years ago, and I believe our wonderful marriage and our nightly ‘golden hour’ chats have helped me survive all things.”
Kirk’s grandson Dylan Douglas – whose parents are actress Catherine Zeta-Jones and son Michael Douglas – wasted no time in paying tribute to his famous relative, when he took to Instagram to share a heart-warming snapshot of himself with his star grandfather. Kirk’s daughter-in-law Catherine Zeta-Jones also shared a snap of herself with him.
