Happy birthday, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas!

The “Chicago” star took to Instagram to give fans a glimpse of how she and her husband were celebrating their joint birthday on Sunday.

Zeta-Jones turned 53, while Douglas turned 78.

“It’s our Birthday!!” the actress gushed in one of her posts. “After 24 years of celebrating our special day together, I still look forward to it😂😘😂I love you!!! a la votre!!!!!!!!!!”

Zeta-Jones later shared a video of her and Douglas en route to an undisclosed location in a private jet.

The roughly 15-second clip opened with the actress declaring, “It’s our birthday!” before panning over to Douglas and saying, “Happy birthday, honey!”

The actor chimed in, saying “Happy birthday, darling!” while giving a thumbs up from his seat a few feet away.

For his part, Douglas also recognized the occasion with a celebratory Instagram post depicting the couple embracing near the Taj Mahal.

“Happy Birthday Catherine! I love you always & forever ❤️,” he captioned it.

The two Hollywood legends met in 1998 at a film festival. Douglas later fessed up to making things a bit awkward at the time, in an earnest attempt to sweet talk his now-wife.

“I said to her after about half an hour [into hanging out for the first time], ‘You know, I’m going to be the father of your children,’” he recalled during an appearance on “The Jonathan Ross Show” in 2016.

“And she said, ‘You know, I’ve heard a lot about you and I’ve seen a lot about you, and I think it’s time I say goodnight.’”

Luckily for both of them, Zeta-Jones was eventually able to look past the “Basic Instinct” star’s initial presumptuousness and accept a date with the actor.

Years later, the pair tied the knot in 2000. They share two children together – son Dylan, 22, and daughter Carys, 19.
