As fans marveled at the striking resemblance between Carys and her mother, Catherine Zeta-Jones took to social media to honor her daughter’s milestone.

Sharing a series of images on Instagram, Catherine presented precious snapshots of Carys as a child alongside a recent portrait of the woman she has become.

Her message was filled with emotion and pride: “Happy Birthday to my beautiful daughter Carys. You are the joy of my life. Watching you blossom into the incredible woman you are today over 21 years is a God-given gift that I cherish every day of my life. Thank you for being you. I love you with all my heart, Mama.”

Touched by her mother’s words, Carys replied affectionately, “I love you Mama, thank you for everything— I am so proud to be your daughter.” Carys’s father, Michael Douglas, also shared a birthday tribute, accompanied by a candid photograph capturing a special moment between them.

The image was aptly captioned, “Happy 21 my darling Carys! You bring me and the world such happiness Carys Dad.” Carys responded to her father’s post with a sentiment echoing the love and appreciation evident in her mother’s tribute. “I love you so much Dadda! Thank you for being the best dad in the world,” she expressed.

In a nostalgic nod to Carys’s childhood, Catherine provided a glimpse into her early years with an Instagram clip from a school concert. Carys, surrounded by peers, offered the camera a playful grin, a charming reminder of the spirited child she once was.

While Carys didn’t showcase her singing skills in that particular video, Catherine has frequently highlighted her daughter’s multifaceted talents. She has praised Carys as an exceptional singer, actress, and musician, yet it’s fashion that holds a special place in Carys’s heart.

Michael has also shared insights into the joys of parenthood, revealing the wonder he and Catherine experienced while watching Carys grow. Speaking openly about being empty nesters alongside his wife, he expressed gratitude for their children, Dylan and Carys, describing them as remarkable individuals.

“We’re empty nesters now, so we have more freedom to travel,” Michael shared. “Raising two children in your fifties, sixties, and even into your seventies is quite an adventure. I’m grateful for Dylan and Carys. They’re truly extraordinary.”

Michael also thanked Catherine for their children, acknowledging the joy they’ve brought into their lives. “We’ve had a wonderful life together,” he continued. “Dylan has finished school, and Carys has one more year of college.”

Reflecting on their journey as parents, Michael expressed, “They’ve brought Catherine and me immense happiness.” He humorously mentioned that enticing Carys and Dylan with exciting trips has become a way to bond and spend quality time together now that they are adults.

Michael has openly shared the bittersweet feelings that accompany children leaving home. With Dylan and Carys progressing through their education and entering adulthood, he and Catherine have embraced parenthood through their fifties, sixties, and seventies.

He expressed how delightful it is to spend time with Carys and Dylan now that they actively seek out family time, rather than it being solely a parental responsibility.

As Carys continues to carve her path, be it in fashion, the arts, or any other pursuit, she does so with the legacy of her parents’ achievements and the unwavering support of a family that revels in each other’s joy.
