Catherine Zeta-Jones and her husband Michael Douglas are currently taking some time off for themselves on a ski holiday, and the Welsh beauty has been busy posting snaps of their romantic gettaway on her Instagram account.
The Hollywood power couple, who’ve been married for 16 years, look more loved up than ever on the romantic break, and Catherine has even shared a sweet snippet of information about their relatuionship. In one of the pictures the star revealed something we didn’t know about the couple – the exact spot where Michael popped the question.
Sharing a picture where the two of them pose with a breathtaking snowy landscape behind them, Catherine wrote: ’16 years ago, this was the spot where my husband proposed.’
The couple, who are still going strong after almost two decades of being married, are on a ski holiday in Aspen, Colorado. After seeing the incredible spot where Michael proposed, we can only say that it would have been impossible for anyone to say no.
The breathtaking spot where Michael proposed to Catherine
The cute couple tied the knot in 2000, at New York’s Plaza Hotel, and have two children together – 12-year-old Carys Zeta Douglas, and 15-year-old Dylan Michael Douglas.
Last year they celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary, and Catherine celebrated the ocasion with another adorable picture of the two of them.
Three years ago, the pair hit a rough patch and went their separate ways for a while.
The split came after the Fatal Attraction actor was diagnosed with stage 4 tongue cancer, now in remission, and his wife’s struggle to cope with her bipolar disorder.
They eventually reconciled officially in 2015, with Michael saying at The Ellen DeGeneres Show: ‘We’re back, stronger than ever.’
Explaining their reconciliation further, Michael said in an interview with AARP The Magazine: ‘It took work on both our parts. I don’t think there’s much chance of fixing a relationship if one of you is already out the door.’
Catherine added: ‘I think we’re both mellower and wiser. That comes naturally with time. We count our blessings.’
Catherine and Michael, who have two children together, officially reconciled in 2015
Before marrying Catherine, who’s 25 years younger than him, Michael was married to his first wife Diandra Luker for 23 years, and the two had one child together – Cameron Douglas.
They separated in 1995 and got a divorce five years later, but in 2013 Michael made an explosive statement, saying his only regret is that he wishes they had ended their marriage sooner.
‘I know I’m going to get into trouble here. I have nothing against her and in fact I’m very fond of my first wife. But we should have ended that marriage eight or 10 years earlier’, he said.
‘It took me too long to realise that if you go to a marriage counsellor to resolve problems, it’s in his interest to keep the marriage going. Because if I end the marriage he’s got no business. I think Diandra would probably say the same thing. That’s the only clear regret that I have.’
Well, we’re glad this one is still going strong Michael – they’re so cute together!
