On His 102nd Birthday, Kirk Douglas And His 99-Year-Old Wife Celebrate Together

In our modern times, eternal love can seem hard to find. Especially when we’re discussing famous couples. 

Yet, it’s real, and some stars especially are great examples of true, long-lasting love. Kirk Douglas and Anne Buydens, his gorgeous wife of more than six decades, are one such pair. 

This amazing couple celebrated Douglas’ one hundred and second birthday just recently.

Kirk Douglas stands out as one of Hollywood’s timeless stars. The director, author, and producer has written 10 books and autobiographies throughout his incredible, decades-long career. 

His doting family celebrated the Golden Age actor’s birthday, as well as honoring him online.

Acting is something the Douglases do well, and his oldest child Michael Douglas has earned a pretty solid reputation of his own. His wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, made a touching post on Instagram to say Happy Birthday to her father in law.

Catherine's heartfelt tribute shows footage of Kirk dancing with his grandson Dylan. Underneath, she's written “Happy 102nd birthday to the most beautiful man. We love you, Kirk”. In the Instagram video, Catherine's daughter sings Christina Aguilera's ‘Beautiful', accompanied by her own piano playing.

Elsewhere, Cameron Douglas—Kirk’s grandchild—made his own birthday post for the star. His tribute was an old picture of grandfather and son together. Beneath it, he wrote:

“Happy Birthday to a gentleman’s gentlemen, with a true heart of gold pastedGraphic.pngWe Love you Pappy! #102″

In 2018, Kirk’s son Michael gave a touching speech for his father as he was given an award on Hollywood’s well-known Walk of Fame.

“My dad is here,” Michael spoke. “In a month, Kirk will be 102 years old! It means so much to me, Dad, that you’re here today. Thank you for your advice, inspiration, and I’ll say it simply and with all my heart: I’m so proud to be your son.”

Kirk was born during the very same year Coke’s recipe was released. In 1916, the Chicago Cubs played the very first ballgame of many at what’s now called Wrigley Field.

In that same year, President Wilson began his second term as US President, and it would still be 4 long years before women across the nation could vote.

Let’s celebrate Kirk’s accomplishments. We hope he had a great birthday!
