Catherine Zeta Jones has delighted fans with a throwback photo from her childhood as she celebrates her 51st birthday.

The actress took to social media on Friday to reminisce on her life, posting a cute picture of herself and her mother from when she was younger. The photo, which was taken in 1974 when she was on holiday in Spain, shows an adorable Catherine smiling broadly at the camera as she holds her mother’s hand.

She wore a beautiful pink dress, long white socks and a big white ribbon in her hair. While her mum sported black flared pants and a button-up white, collared shirt.

Fans were quick to comment on the gorgeous photo, leaving birthday wishes for the mother-of-two.

“Beautiful. Lots of love to you both and your whole family. I was born in that year,” @mantrasattvik commented on Instagram.

“Happy Birthday to you and to Mr D! Also – absolutely love your mum’s blouse and pants! Fabulous! Enjoy your special day,” @debdee1024 wrote. While @monsieurannoire added: “Happy Birthday to my fav actress – stay gorgeous always!”

Catherine also shared another post wishing her husband Michael Douglas – and a selection of other people  – a happy birthday. The actor, who is also born on September 25, turned 76 on Friday.

“I am so honoured to be born on the same day as all these talented people! Happy birthday Will, Heather, Serge, Barbara and OF COURSE the father of my children and my husband Michael. And to the ‘man of steel’ our deal friend Christopher, you are always in our hearts and never forgotten. Happy birthday my fellow Libras!”

Meanwhile, Michael also took to social media to celebrate their birthdays, with a sweet video showing photos of him and his wife over the years. The adorable snaps showed just how happy the two are together and their strong bond.

“Happy Birthday Catherine! I bet you are glad this year is over! Here’s to the future,” he wrote on the Instagram post.

“Happy birthday to the two GREATEST people in the world!” @zaamitch commented on the Instagram post. While @cece_yorke said: “Happy birthday Cath and to your husband Michael too! LIBRAS! Wishing you both a beautiful day!”
