Catherine Zeta-Jones’ children share an incredibly close bond, so it was no surprise that doting older brother Dylan took to marking his little sister’s 14th birthday in a special way late last week. Taking to Instagram, the thoughtful 16-year-old posted a sweet childhood photo of the pair, showing him tenderly whispering in Carys ear. Captioning the picture, he wrote: "Happy birthday Carys love you so much." Clearly touched with the post, the birthday girl replied: "Thank you Dylan!! Love you so so much you’re the best big brother ever."
Meanwhile, Catherine herself made sure to mark her daughter’s birthday with her own personal tribute. Proving herself to be a dab hand at video editing, she shared a fun montage of pictures and family footage on her account, which included an adorable clip of Carys performing a dance routine to the camera against a stunning lake backdrop.
Dylan and Carys have shared a close sibling bond since they were little children
Catherine and her husband Michael Douglas married in 2000, three months after welcoming their son Dylan. Their little girl Carys was born three years later.
In a recent interview published in HELLO!, Catherine also revealed that both children were set for a career on stage, likely to follow in the footsteps of their A-list parents and grandfather, Kirk Douglas. Talking about their passion, the star said: “I think they're good at it. When they're on stage, you want to look at them. And they're interested in the craft. My sons wants to do a Bachelor of Arts in theatre. My daughter wanted to be a paediatrician until she was five, when she decided acting was better."

Discussing their other talents, Catherine explained her household is a very "happy" one. "They're very musical, so we sing through life - which is a great treat for me because my husband… well, I love him, but he can't sing a note," she explained. "You know, he claims he sang on the backing track to When the Going Gets Tough, the Touch Gets Going but I know Billy Ocean wouldn't let him. But my daughter plays piano, my son plays bass guitar and lead guitar and I just bought him a huge drum set, to his father's distaste. They love disco, my son's into the Rolling Stones, and it's all very eclectic and wonderful. I love the fact that they love music so much."
