Catherine Zeta-Jones, 51, wished her daughter, Carys Zeta Douglas, a happy 18th birthday on Tuesday with a social media tribute that showed the teen as a baby alongside a present-day snap of her in a swimsuit.
“You are everything, and everything is you,” the proud mama captioned the slideshow. “Thank you for the joy you bring me.” The “Chicago” star shared that her daughter had actually texted her in the early hours of her own birthday to thank her for giving birth to her.
“That’s the kind of woman you are,” Catherine Zeta-Jones added. “Kind. Your wisdom outnumbers your years. [Your] beauty is deep and your heart is big enough to love and envelop the world, your sense of humor … very important … is insurmountable.”
The actress finished the post with a small quip, joking, “Your Japanese needs some work, but that’s doable,” and concluded, “I love you angel. Mama.” Carys was appreciative of the post, commenting, “I love you my mamma! Thank you for all that you do.”
Meanwhile, Michael Douglas, 76, did not miss out on an opportunity to give his daughter a shoutout on her special day. He captioned a photo of the pair all dolled up, saying, “Honey this is your Dad, wishing you the best 18th birthday any young lady could possibly have.”
“You know how much I love you, how proud I am of you, and the joy I have watching you grow into the young lady you are turning out to be! Happy birthday Carys! I love you! Dad,”he finished the post. Carys replied, “Thank you my dadda!! I love you and thank you for everything you do. You are my biggest inspiration!”
