Michael Douglas is one of Hollywood's greatest actors with various accolades for his work on and off the screen. The icon recently became a grandfather for the second time and celebrated the news with a rare family picture on Instagram.

The father-of-three uploaded a picture of his firstborn son, Cameron posing alongside his longtime girlfriend Viviane Thibes and their children. The couple was dressed casually with the proud dad in a sleeveless white top and trousers.

Thibes wore a blue top and was captured with a radiant smile as she held her newborn son to her chest. The family picture was completed with their three-year-old daughter Lua dressed in a blue princess dress.

Aside from Cameron, Michael has been blessed with two other children during his marriage with Zeta-Jones.


Douglas happiness was undeniable in the post's caption, where he congratulated the parents and revealed his grandson's name with the words, "Welcome to the world Ryder T. Douglas! #ProudGrandpa"

The actor's wife Catherine Zeta-Jones also celebrated the news by sharing the same picture on her Instagram story. However, this precious family picture was first shared by Cameron on Instagram.


The sweet post received both positive and hilarious comments, as many didn't miss Lua's unhappy expression in the picture. Zeta-Jones and her husband also joked about the three-year-old's unhappiness in the comment section.

The only person absent from the joyful occasion was Cameron's late grandfather and Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas, who died earlier this year. For the Douglas family, Ryder's birth can be seen as a miracle in more ways than one.


The baby was born four years after his father was released from prison in 2016, where the 42-year-old spent time for drug charges. Since his release, the "Loaded" actor has reportedly been dedicated to his family's happiness.

A few days before Ryder's birth was announced on Instagram, Douglas and his longtime girlfriend celebrated their daughter's third birthday. Lua was honored by her father with a sweet post on Instagram.


The proud dad shared a black-and-white picture of the three-year-old posing with Christmas decorations. The actor expressed his love for his daughter in the post's caption and described her as his angel.

Aside from Cameron, Michael has been blessed with two other children during his marriage with Zeta-Jones. The 76-year-old was first married to Diandra Luker from 1977–1995, but their divorce was finalized in 2000.

Before their divorce, the pair were blessed with Cameron, who was born in 1978. Then the Hollywood icon tied the knot with Zeta-Jones in 2000, and they welcomed their first child and son Dylan that same year then a daughter Carys in 2003.
