It's a special day in Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas' household, as the couple is celebrating their eldest son's birthday.

Their son Dylan is officially 23 years old this August 8, and his parents have already made sure the birthday boy is feeling all of the love from both them and their fans.

The two actors have been married for as long as their son has been alive, since 2000, and also share a younger daughter, Carys Zeta, who turned 20 earlier this year.

For Dylan's birthday, both Catherine and Michael took to Instagram with sweet tributes for their son, with the Fatal Attraction actor kicking things off with a headshot of his son where he looks, like his parents, ever the actor ready for his close-up.

In the caption, Michael wrote: "Happy birthday Dylan! May YOUR new year bring you joy, imagination, and love!" endearingly singed with: "Your biggest fan, Dad."

Dylan and his little sister Carys spent their first years of childhood growing up in their parents' compound in Bermuda, which Michael's family has deep, long ties to. His mother Diana was part of one of the oldest and most respected families in the Caribbean island, and his ancestors' roots in the island have been traced back to the 1600s.

The compound is located in the island's Warwick Parish, though the Douglas-Zeta family listed it for sale for $10.6 million in 2019.

Aside from Bermuda, Dylan and Carys were largely raised in upstate New York; the family today owns a 22-bedroom, Georgian-style estate in Irvington that sits on 13 acres of land.
