The legendary American Actress, Marlo Thomas went back memory lane; she posted a throwback picture of her and her father and paid a special tribute to him.

Thursdays are for throwbacks, and actress, Marlo Thomas wasn’t going to be left out of it this time. The 81-year-old posted a picture featuring her and her father, Danny Thomas from years back, and took the opportunity to shower some praises on him.

The veteran actress took to her Facebook page to post the special throwback Thursday picture. It showed her and her late father laughing heartily. The actress captioned the post with the words:

“TBT to my darling dad who could always make me laugh. I was lucky to have a funny daddy in my life. #ThrowbackThursday."

The pair is counting down 39 years as a couple, and many would wonder the secrets to their long-lasting union, with the recent trend of celebrity couple divorces.

Marlo revealed the secrets to her successful marriage when she was a guest on the TODAY show to talk about her role in a play by Joe DiPietro titled “Clever Little Lies.”

She explained that the secret of their successful marriage was in them learning to be supportive of each other without criticism.
