Julia Roberts gushed about her husband Danny Moder as she wished him a happy birthday on Instagram.
The actress, 56, posted a cuddled-up snap with her and Danny as she celebrated his 55th birthday on Wednesday.
‘Happy Birthday to this amazing man who lights up our world,’ she captioned the post. She added several glittering emojis, lightning bolts, and a hashtag referencing his date of birth, ‘131.’
The precious photo captured Julia snuggled against her spouse as they gazed lovingly at one another.
Julia – who recently was at Paris Fashion Week – appeared to be serving as photographer as she seemingly outstretched her arms to capture the snap.

Roberts has been married to Moder since 2002, and last year she praised her other half as ‘the captain of our ship’ during an appearance on The Today Show.
‘Well, it all starts with Danny Moder, you know?’ she gushed to Hoda Kotb. ‘He’s just really our anchor and our person. And in the most beautiful way, the captain of our ship, you know, truly.’
The gorgeous star — who shares three children with Danny — then joked that she doesn’t necessarily give her partner all the credit for their amazing home life.
‘And it’s not, like, giving it all away to him,’ she added. ‘It’s just that for me, understanding how deeply felt life could be really started with him.’
Julia and Danny met on the set of The Mexican in 2000, where she was acting alongside Brad Pitt, and he was working as a cameraman.
At the time, Julia was dating Benjamin Bratt, while Danny was married to makeup artist Vera Steimberg.
‘I could see how wonderful he was, but we were both in relationships at the time, so we were just friends,’ Julia revealed in 2003 during an interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The pair eventually split from their respective partners before romance blossomed.

‘He sorted his whole thing out, separate and apart from me,’ she explained to Oprah. ‘And I sorted my life out, separate and apart from him. I think that’s the only reason we were able to ultimately fall in love with each other and be together.’
They tied the knot in 2002 in a secret ceremony at Roberts’ ranch near Taos, New Mexico.
The couple went on to welcome twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, now 19, in 2004, followed by son Henry, now 16, three years later.
During her interview with Hoda, Julia revealed how she is parenting two kids in college, and one who will soon be off to college.
When asked in 2022 on how she defied the Hollywood odds with her decades-long marriage, Julia told E! News: ‘I always say that same thing and I’m sticking with it. It’s making out. Lots of making out’
‘I parent them the same way out of the house that I parented them in the house,’ she said. ‘”Are you getting enough sleep? And you sound like you’re sick. And are you drinking tea? And text me when you get home.”‘
Julia also explained how they keep in touch while they are away from home.
‘We all were on a FaceTime the other day together, all of us. And it was, like, this gift that we had, these four minutes of us all looking at each other. We were all so happy to be together in that way,’ she said.
