Catherine Zeta-Jones has posted a loving tribute to her father-in-law Kirk Douglas on social media.

Taking to Instagram on Thursday, Catherine, who married Kirk’s son Michael in 2000, shared a throwback photo of herself with the Spartacus star, who celebrated his 102nd birthday in December.

She captioned the post: “A moment on the carpet with Kirk. Blessed to call this incredible man family.”

Many fans were quick to comment on the gorgeous image, with one writing: “You guys have a sweet relationship.”

Another added: “Still handsome and dapper.”

And a third wrote: “You certainly are Catherine! Then again I bet he can say the same thing about you!”

The tight-knit family often share loved-up photos of each other, especially when the grandchildren and great-grandpa Kirk are around.

In December, the actress paid a sweet tribute to her father-in-law on the occasion of his 102nd birthday. Catherine shared a moving black and white video on Instagram which featured the couple’s daughter Carys playing the piano and singing Christina Aguilera’s hit song ‘Beautiful’.

The video clip features a number of photos of Kirk, both from his personal life and throughout his incredible career, including a sweet bit of footage showing Kirk dancing with his grandson Dylan.

“Happy 102nd birthday to the most beautiful man. We love you Kirk,” the 49-year-old actress wrote on Instagram.


Kirk is one of the biggest names in Hollywood, having enjoyed a lengthy career, but his life began much more humbly as the star was born Issur Danielovitch Demsky to Jewish immigrant parents living in Amsterdam, NY.

He made his movie debut in 1946’s The Strange Love of Martha Ivers opposite Barbara Stanwyck and Van Heflin, before teaming up with Burt Lancaster for the first of eight times in I Walk Alone. However he is arguably best known for his leading role in 1960 movie Spartacus.

Are you a fan of the Douglas clan? Did you watch Kirk’s films growing up? Which was your favourite?
