Pierce Brosnan and his wife Keely have celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary and grab the tissues because these two are proof that true love exists!

Pierce Brosnan might be best known for playing the ultimate Lothario James Bond but for this Irish actor, there's only one Bond girl for him—his wife Keely Brosnan.

The happy couple celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary and in honor of the big day, they both shared heartbreakingly romantic tributes.


Pierce shared a photo of the pair from 20 years ago and one more recently—even though two decades have passed, it's clear that they're still crazy about each other.

The actor said, "Happy anniversary my darling Keely, my love forever grows with you…☘️❤️"

In her own heartfelt post, Keely said, "Still the one! Happy 20th wedding anniversary @piercebrosnanofficial ✨ Thank you for the gift of your love and friendship. The world is more beautiful with you in it! 4-8-94 / 8-4-2001."

The couple met at a party back in 1994 in Cabo San Lucas. This was a year before the Irish heartthrob made his 007 debut in Goldeneye and became a household name. According to the actor, their union was magical from the getgo.

Pierce told People, "Wherever I went in the world I missed her, and I’d send her tickets to come so we could be together. We just seemed to fit." He added, "I found a great woman in Keely Shaye. Not if I searched a million times over would I find one as good."

As if he couldn't be any cuter, he also told Closer, "When Keely looks at me, I go weak. I love her vitality, her passion." Adding, "She has this strength that I wouldn’t be able to live without."

The happy couple is based in the US and have two children together, Dylan and Paris. Theirs is a brilliantly blended family as they also have three children from Pierce's previous marriage to Cassandra Harris. Cassandra's children from a previous relationship, Charlotte Brosnan and Christopher Brosnan were adopted by Pierce after they were married in 1980 and they had one biological son together, Sean Brosnan.

Cassandra sadly passed away in 1991 as a result of ovarian cancer, an illness that would take her daughter Charlotte 22 years later in 2013.

Pierce spoke of the pain he's experienced in life and how his loving wife and children have supported him throughout these traumas. For him, life is about taking the positive things while you can.

When asked by People what would be his perfect day, he answered, "It was yesterday. I painted in my studio, then I went down and sat on the beach, read and did some drawing, Adding, "and then I had lunch with Keely."

He said, "Around 5 o’clock, I went out and watched the sun go down. Keely sat beside me, we had a glass of champagne and talked about the day." The loved-up star added, "It’s very simple—and the best."
