Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas have exchanged heartfelt messages to one another as they both celebrate their birthdays on 25 September.

It's a special day in their household as while Douglas reached his 76th year on Friday, his wife turned 51 years old on the same day.

Although, Zeta-Jones jokingly listed all the other famous faces she shares a birthday with before mentioning her spouse.
