Catherine Zeta-Jones has shared a loving tribute to her parents as they celebrate an incredible 53 years of marriage! The actress, who has two children with her husband Michael Douglas, uploaded a black-and-white snapshot on Instagram showing Patricia and David relaxing by the pool. Patricia is in the foreground, looking very chic in a white swimsuit, wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses, as she relaxes on a sun lounger. David, meanwhile, can be seen in the background, sitting in the shade on a cushioned bench. "Happy anniversary to my amazing parents," Catherine captioned the picture. "Seen here chilling by the pool after 53 years of marriage. Love you with all my heart."
