Michael Douglas and his wife, Catherine, celebrate Christmas with their grown teenage children; Dylan, 18 years old, and Carys, 15. Catherine posted a picture on her Instagram page on Wednesday which captures the family of four in a very exotic vacation spot. The children are seen posing with some furry black animals.


Catherine captioned it: “Love❤ to you and yours from us?” 


The 49-year-old actress recently told the world in an interview with Entertainment Tonight of her decision to take her children away from the Hollywood spotlight. 

In Catherine's words:

“They've kind of been removed from the crazy world of Hollywood or even the crazy world of Manhattan, there's a maturity that comes too quick I think...we've kind of shielded them away, but they're incredibly mature for their tender years. They get it.” 

The actress and her husband want their teenage kids to have a normal childhood as much as they can, and she considers herself lucky to have such lovely children who understand her decision and respect it.


Catherine spoke about her children and life with Michael to Town and Country Magazine:

 “What I instilled in my kids, and I'm very, very proud of it, is manners. There's nothing worse than a privileged kid without manners. I drilled it into them like boot camp.”

The mother is proud of her achievements concerning the family, and she never shies away from speaking out about them.


The beautiful couple has managed to strike a perfect balance between work and family. The Christmas vacation is coming right on time, both have had a pretty hectic year and could not have picked a better way to let their hair down.


Some fans picked the beautiful moment to comment on how lovely the family looked.

One fan wrote:

“Aw love this pic. Sending you much love, health and a great holiday!”

While another one loved the furry animals and wrote

“Beautiful!!!! I'm sure someone already asked, but what in the world are those animals.” 

A third comment read:

 “What a lovely family picture very nice you guys are blessed!”

They indeed are! Catherine knows this, and she is grateful.
