"My wife and I like to go for a very early drink on a Friday night. While we're enjoying our cocktails, we will catch up on the week. It's a nice excuse to do that."

The sweet comment comes shortly after Gary shared a never-before-seen throwback picture with his wife from 2000 - the year they married. In the caption, the 49-year-old musician gushed: "This week's #lookatus comes from the year 2000. No kids. Not many responsibilities. Aw little did we know what was coming our way."

The couple have been married for 21 years

The lovebirds met back in 1995 when Dawn was working as a backup dancer on Take That's Nobody Else tour. They tied the knot five years later, and have since become loving parents to their three children; Daniel, 20, Emily, 18, and 11-year-old Daisy. Sadly, their fourth child, daughter Poppy, was stillborn in 2012.

Despite the current lockdown, Gary and Dawn made sure they marked their 21st wedding anniversary in a special way. At the time, the pop star posted a series of photos from home where the couple enjoyed glasses of Ruinart Champagne and tiny chocolate and raspberry cupcakes.
