Pierce and Keely forever. James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan celebrated a quarter century of love with his wife, Keely Shaye Smith, this week on social media.

The Mamma Mia! star took to Instagram to post a photo with his wife. “Thank you for the love my love of these past 25 years,” he expressed early Thursday, July 19. “Onwards.”

Brosnan and Shaye Smith will have another reason to celebrate their long-lasting relationship next month, by marking 17 years of marriage in August. Even with years of marital experience, the two have remained enamored with each other.

Thank you for the love my love of these past 25 years, onwards…

In a rare interview about his relationship in 2015, Brosnan revealed what he loves most about the former American journalist. “I love her vitality, her passion,” he told the Independent. “She has this strength that I wouldn’t be able to live without. When Keely looks at me, I go weak.”

However, the two have been more than open about their romance during PDA-filled outings on the red carpet. They are parents to sons Dylan and Paris, as well as Brosnan’s three children, Sean, Charlotte and Christopher, from his marriage to his first and late wife Cassie.
