Julia Roberts posted a rare cuddly photo with her husband, Danny Moder, to celebrate his 55th birthday Wednesday.
“Happy Birthday to this amazing man who lights up our world,” the Pretty Woman star, 56, wrote on Instagram.
As per Page Six. the snap showed Roberts smiling as she leaned in close and stared lovingly into the cinematographer’s eyes.
Moder looked cosy in a casual long-sleeve shirt as he rested his hands on his wife’s shoulders and romantically met her gaze.
The Erin Brockovich star keeps her relationship relatively out of the spotlight, though she did gush over Moder on the US Today show in December.
“It all starts with Danny Moder, you know?” she told Hoda Kotb. “He’s just really our anchor and our person. And in the most beautiful way, [he’s] the captain of our ship. Truly.”
However, Roberts — who shares 19-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus and 16-year-old son Henry with her hubby — joked that Moder shouldn’t get all the credit for keeping their family afloat.
“[I’m] not, like, giving it all away,” she said with a laugh. “It’s just that for me, understanding how deeply-felt life could be, really started with him.”
The couple met in 2000 while working together on the film The Mexican. At the time, Roberts was dating Benjamin Bratt and Moder was married to Vera Steimberg.
After both their relationships ended, the Oscar winner and the Emmy nominee said “I do” in July 2002, and they have been going strong ever since.
Roberts commemorated her 21st wedding anniversary with Moder with an emotional tribute post on social media last year.
And a year prior, she marked their milestone 20th anniversary with a photo of the pair kissing.
“TWENTY #can’tstopsmiling#can’tstopkissing,” she captioned the PDA picture in July 2022.
Moder also honoured their long-lasting love that year, writing on social media, “Today we start our 20th year of marriage. This photo was on a dusty road before that big idea … just holding on to this beautiful girl one day at a time. One epic day at a time.”
Roberts has shared that the life she and Moder built together has been a “dream come true.”
“When I’m not working, [being a homemaker] is my full-time job,” she said on CBS This Morning in October 2022.
“It isn’t rainbows and kittens every day, but it does bring me a lot of joy.”
Roberts continued, “The life that I have built with my husband, [and] the life that we’ve built with our children, that’s the best stuff. To come home at the end of the day, triumphantly, to them.”
