The "That Girl" star recently took to Instagram to announce her new book, "What Makes a Marriage Last," which was co-written by her better half, Phil Donahue.

The excited actress also shared that the book is set to hit the stores by May 5, and will feature the secret to having a lasting marital life based on their own experiences alongside other long time couples.

COLLECTION OF STORIES

The "Free to Be... You and Me" author and her long time husband traveled the country and sat down with forty celebrated couples whose long marriages they've admired, including award-winning actors, athletes, and newsmakers, writers, comedians, musicians, and a former US president.

The book in itself is a fruition of the intimate stories that the iconic duo gathered coupled with their own rich journey that they traveled together in the last forty years.

As the beautiful Thomas announced in her caption, the book was inspired by plenty of anecdotes that were surprising, inspiring, romantic, and often hilarious.

PRIOR NOTICE

Thomas had hinted at the huge announcement a day prior to actually making it with a throwback picture from the day of her wedding with the captions suggesting some excitement coming really soon.

FANS ARE EXCITED

Another fan took the opportunity to congratulate the couple for their new project and stated that he was really looking forward to what this publication had to offer.

Yet another fan was amazed that time had gone by so fast, and the power couple had already completed four decades in their relationship while others couldn't help but admire the charming duo.

Thomas married the popular daytime talk show host Phil Donahue all the way back in May 1980, three years after they met for the first time on "The Donahue Show."

The duo had instant chemistry, and four decades into their marriage, Thomas is the stepmother to Donahue's five children from his previous marriage to Margaret Cooney but has no children of her own.
