The love story of actor Pierce Brosnan and his wife Keely Shaye is even better than in the movies. The couple recently celebrated their 25th anniversary together, and they still seem as in love with each other as they did a quarter century ago.
Brosnan has never hidden his affection for his wife, which still surprises many – saying so many years have passed and they still can’t get enough.
On the anniversary, the actor posted a photo of himself and his beloved wife with the caption, “Thank you for your love over the past 25 years my love.”
Pierce Brosnan met his future wife in 1994 in Cabo San Lucas. Keely Shaye was working as a journalist and met the actor at a party after his failed interview with Ted Denson.
Seven years later, in 2001, the couple married. The wedding took place in Ireland, where the actor was born in the ancient Catholic Ballintubber Abbey, founded by kings in 1216.
The couple have two sons, Dylan and Paris.
For so many years, Pierce Brosnan and Keely managed to not only set an example of a successful marriage, but also keep the romance in their relationship by spending a lot of time together.
“My wife and I went to Santa Barbara one day – we had a romantic weekend, looked at the house, drank fine wine,” the actor told People magazine. “We weren’t listening to music, but we were listening to the sound of everyone’s voice and talking about everything in the world.”
On what the actor loves most about his wife: “There’s a strength in her that I couldn’t live without. When Keely looks at me, I think I’m weak.
Even after 25 years, the two are still in love and happy.
Before Keely, the actor was just as happily married to Cassandra Harris, but she died of cancer in 1991. And three years later, Brosnan met Keely, who brought him back to life.
