The power couple celebrated 17 years since they tied the knot, and to commemorate the occasion, Zeta-Jones posted the sweetest message to Douglas alongside a throwback picture from their 2000 wedding at the Plaza Hotel in New York.

"17 years ago today, I said ‘I do’ to my best friend and father of our two and a half month old son," Zeta-Jones wrote. "Thought it could never get better than that day, but it did. Happy anniversary darling, Michael. With you, in my life, and Dylan and Carys, every day could be a twelve hour fantastic party at the Plaza in New York. Love you. #love #lovestrong."
