Pierce Brosnan never shies away from declaring his love for wife Keely Shaye Smith, and the James Bond actor did just that on Thursday as he penned a touching tribute to the former model in honour of their 20th wedding anniversary.

The 68-year-old shared a side-by-side photo of the two together, one from when they were first dating and one taken more recently. “Happy anniversary my darling Keely, my love forever grows with you,” Pierce captioned the post.

Fellow celebrities and fans of Pierce’s commented on the sweet post to wish the couple a happy anniversary, with Rita Wilson writing: “Happy happy Anniversary, lovebirds!”

Meanwhile fan wrote: “Happy Anniversary! Beautiful couple.” Another added: “Happy anniversary to you guys. Sending so much love to you two.”

Keely also marked the momentous occasion by sharing a throwback wedding pic of the two. She captioned the post: “Still the one! Happy 20th wedding anniversary @piercebrosnanofficial. Thank you for the gift of your love and friendship. The world is more beautiful with you in it!”

The couple tied the knot in 2001, seven years after first meeting on a beach in Mexico in 1994. Their romance blossomed just before Pierce made his debut as womanising British spy 007 in 1995’s Goldeneye.

Pierce and Keely, 57, share sons Paris, 20, and Dylan, 24, together, while Pierce shared three children with his first wife Cassandra Harris, who sadly died in 1991 as a result of ovarian cancer.

Pierce adopted Harris’ two children, Charlotte and Christopher, from a previous marriage, following the death of their father in 1986, and the couple also welcomed son Sean together. However, Charlotte tragically passed away in 2013 from ovarian cancer, at the age of just 42.

Pierce regularly opens up about his beautiful wife Keely and in April the actor shared a beautiful throwback pic of the two sailing on a boat. It’s not clear when the picture was taken but both Pierce and Keely look a lot younger. “Like only yesterday, the years fly by my love, so many dreams with you, onwards my love,” he wrote at the time.
