Onscreen he has portrayed the ultimate ladies man James Bond and the dashing lover of Meryl Streep, but Pierce Brosnan’s, who was once nominated as the sexiest man alive, offscreen romance is better than any movies. The actor and his lovely wife Keely Shaye Smith just celebrated the 25th relationship anniversary, and it’s obvious the two are still smitten.
Brosnan, who has never shied away from sharing his feelings about Smith, posted an Instagram photo of the pair looking into each other’s eyes with the caption, “Thank you for love, my love of these past 25 years, onwards.” If that’s not couple goals, we don’t know what is.
The ‘Mamma Mia! Here we go again’ movie star met the former TV journalist in Cabo San Lucas in 1994. The soon-to-be Pierce Brosnan’s wife was on the job as a correspondent and met Brosnan at a party after an interview with Ted Danson fell through. Seven years later, in 2001, the two tied the knot. The big day took place in Ireland at the 785-year-old Ballintubber Abbey in County Mayo and looked like straight out of Pierce Brosnan movies.
Throughout the years the duo has managed to keep their romance alive through some innocent PDA and quality time.
“My wife and I took a short road trip up to Santa Barbara—we were going for a romantic weekend and to look at houses and drink great wine,” Brosnan told People magazine, “We didn’t listen to any music, but we just listened to the sounds of each other’s voices and sorted out the world.”
The Irish-born actor said in an interview that his favorite thing about Smith is her passion, “She has this strength that I wouldn’t be able to live without. When Keely looks at me, I go weak.”
The couple has two sons together Dylan, 21, and Paris, 17. Scroll down to see some cute couple photos that are definitely relationship goals. And if you are feeling a bit soft, check our other pages on the wedding anniversary topic.
