The family first began when Catherine and Michael were introduced to each other by mutual friends while promoting their films – A Perfect Murder and The Mask of Zorro respectively – at the Deauville Film Festival.

Immediately, Michael knew he was going to be the father of her children.

“I looked at her, and I said, ‘Catherine, I’m going to be the father of your children’,” he told The Hollywood Reporter in 2019.

“The first time I met her! You think that went over big?”.

The pair met in 1998.

The pair tied the knot in a luxurious wedding ceremony at the Plaza Hotel in New York City on November 18, 2000. Catherine looked like the picture of elegance in her Christian Lacroix gown with a low-cut bodice and sleeveless silhouette.

Catherine and Michael’s timeless ceremony, which reportedly cost $2.6 million, will forever be pinned in someone’s Pinterest board for wedding inspiration.

But, just months before their wedding on August 8, 2000, Catherine gave birth to their first child, a son named Dylan Michael Douglas.

Three years later on April 20, 2003, the stars welcomed their daughter Carys who has grown to become the spitting image of her mother.

Now Dylan, 23, and Carys, 20, are carving their own way through the world. But what does the future hold for them? Will they become entertainers like their parents or live a simple life?

“Catherine and I are blessed with the fact that our kids Dylan and Carys still like to travel with us,” Michael began on Today US. “Especially when you’re not forcing them. I said, ‘Catherine, look, they actually want to hang out with us.’ But we’ve got good trips, we seduce them with good places to go.”
