Catherine Zeta-Jones Says Every Day With Husband Michael Douglas Is A ‘Fantastic Party’

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas were married 17 years ago this Saturday in a petal-strewn, $1.1 million wedding at the Plaza Hotel in New York City. Zeta-Jones says every day of their marriage still feels like a 12 hour party at a luxury hotel.

On Saturday, the 49 year-old actress took to Instagram to celebrate her marriage to Douglas, whom she called her “best friend”. Douglas, now 73, and Zeta-Jones have two children, Dylan, 17, who was two and a half months old at the time of the wedding, and Carys, who is 14. Zeta-Jones wrote that with their family, every day feels like “a twelve hour fantastic party at the Plaza in New York.”

The longtime couple separated in 2013 but reconciled a short time later. Douglas says the marriage is “work on both our parts.” But you know what they say – work hard, party for 12 hours at the Plaza hard.
