Kirk Douglas might now be the ripe old age of 103, but he’s still got a firm place in the hearts of many.
The Hollywood legend celebrated his 103rd birthday on Monday, and had previously begged son Michael not to throw him a big party as in years past.
As befits the veteran move star, Douglas spent his special day being showered by affection from the people who mean the most to him: his loving family.
Son Michael led the tributes, taking to Instagram to post a heartwarming picture beside his father.
“Happy birthday Dad! You are a living legend and your entire family sends you all the love in their hearts,” Michael wrote.
He wasn’t the only member of the Douglas clan to pay tribute, though. Douglas’ wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, also took to social media to express her joy.
The 50-year-old shared a photo of Kirk sitting on her knee (presumably taken a few years ago), captioning it: “This guy on my knee is 103!!!!! Happy Birthday, Pappy!!! I love you with all my heart.”
It’s reported that Kirk marked the occasion surrounded by close-knit members of his family. He even got to enjoy a special Spartacus-themed birthday cake!
Happy Birthday, Kirk Douglas: We hope you get to celebrate many more!
