Welsh Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones and her celebrity husband, Michael Douglas, have been married for over two decades. As a result of their long-lasting romance, the lovebirds have earned the title of one of Hollywood's most intriguing couples.

Zeta-Jones and Douglas first encountered each other in 1998 at a film festival where the latter was promoting "A Perfect Murder." A month before, Douglas had gotten interested in Zeta-Jones after spotting her in the film "The Mask Zorro."

So, when he discovered that the movie would be showing at the festival, he was eager to know if she would be present and alone. The actor asked his assistant to confirm Zeta Jones's availability and set them up for a date.

Unfortunately, the actress was only around for a night, but she was down for a drink with Douglas. Eventually, the couple sat down for a drink, after which Zeta-Jones invited Douglas to dinner with the company.

The "Fatal Attraction" star obliged, and afterward, Douglas and Zeta-Jones had an outing at the latter's hotel bar.

The meeting appeared to be going on fine as the duo chatted over drinks. However, a big mistake from Douglas would nearly ruin their outfit. The actor told Zeta-Jones, "I'm gonna be the father of your children." Unfortunately, the actress seemed offended by Douglas's words and replied thus (via The Mirror):

"I've heard a lot about you, and I guess it's all true – goodnight."

Immediately, she walked out in annoyance and left the hotel the following morning. At that moment, Douglas thought he had blown his chances of being with the beautiful Welsh actress.

But thankfully, the lovebirds reconnected, and the actor successfully won Zeta Jones's heart. They have been together ever since. Here are more details about Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones's relationship.

Indeed, Douglas has a lot to be proud of regarding his children.

DOUGLAS AND FATHERHOOD AT AN OLDER AGE

Douglas and Zeta-Jones dated for a while before exchanging wedding vows in 2000. That same year, the power couple expanded their family following the arrival of their first son, Dylan.

In 2003, the pair's second child and daughter, Carys, joined the family. For Douglas, becoming a father for his younger kids later in life is something he believes has helped him to focus on things essential in life.

Although many frowns at it, the actor once revealed that marrying and welcoming two kids at an older age — when his career had developed — availed him enough time with his family. Besides spending quality time with family, Douglas confessed that getting older made him realize the things that needed more attention. According to the actor (via The Mirror):

"The upside of aging is that you choose how you spend your time much more carefully. Rather than just going with the flow, you wake up in the morning, and you think about what you will do that week and how you will spend your time."

As a result, Douglas revealed that he plans holidays three and six months ahead of time, as time had become "finite."

Ultimately, no matter how finite time has become for Douglas, one thing is sure: he will always create time for his family. The actor has noted that Zeta-Jones and his children are one of his greatest accomplishments.

Indeed, Douglas has a lot to be proud of regarding his children. At their young ages, Dylan and Carys have chosen to pursue careers in showbiz, just like their parents. The sibling duo has taken an interest in the movie and music industry.

In addition, Carys loves fashion, and she proved it in 2019 when she appeared with her stunning mom in the September issue of Vanity Fair, Spain. Besides Dylan and Carys' career achievements, the pair also thrive in other areas of their life, like academics.

For example, in May 2021, Carys graduated with honors for her International Baccalaureate, and her parents could not be prouder. Then, in May 2022, Dylan graduated from college, and Zeta-Jones marked the milestone with an Instagram post. Alongside a picture of her and Dylan on the big day, she wrote:

"Graduation congratulations to my boy, my pride, my joy, Dylan. I am inexplicably proud of you, and I love you beyond words."

DOUGLAS AND HIS FAMILY SHOW THE FAMILY VIBE

Douglas and his family share quite an enviable bond, and netizens have been privileged to see it. Recently, the close-knit family once again proved their strong family bond in a video showing their "family vibe."
