Pierce Brosnan Wishes Wife Keely Shaye Smith Happy Birthday

Pierce Brosnan Cuddles Wife Keely Shaye Smith in Birthday Instagram: "So Many Years of Love"

Pierce Brosnan wished his wife of over two decades, Keely Shaye Smith, a happy birthday with a sweet (and tropical!) Instagram post on Sept. 26.

"Happy Birthday my darling @KeelyShayeBrosnan," the 69-year-old actor wrote. "I love you dearly. So many years of love, life, work and play. Onwards we go!"

Brosnan and Smith were married in Ireland in 2001, and they've been openly loving and supportive of each other over the years. "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," Brosnan told People in 2001 of his early years with his wife. He also said: "I found a great woman in Keely Shaye. Not if I searched a million times over would I find one as good."

They have two children together — 25-year-old musician Dylan and 21-year-old model Paris — and both of the boys just appeared in a feature in GQ with their dad on Sept. 22. From Brosnan's Malibu home, they spoke about the life lessons they've learned from their famous father over the years. According to Dylan, the most important lesson of all he's instilled in them is "Don't be afraid to make fun of yourself."

Brosnan, who is starring in "Black Adam" alongside Dwayne Johnson and Noah Centineo in October, has two other sons, Chris and Sean. He shared them and his late daughter, Charlotte, with his late wife, Cassandra Harris.
