A source says the actor wants to prove his love to his wife, who has been 'a rock for him,' by expressing his commitment to their marriage on the tenth anniversary.
Hollywood star Michael Douglas is refusing to let his ongoing cancer battle mar his upcoming 10th wedding anniversary - he is planning to renew his vows with actress wife Catherine Zeta-Jones. The "Wall Street" icon is currently undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatment for throat cancer following his diagnosis revelation in August.
But his health scare hasn't dampened his romantic ways - Douglas wants to prove his love to the Welsh beauty by expressing his commitment to their marriage 10 years after they first exchanged vows on November 18, 2000. A source tells America's Star magazine, "She's been a rock for him. Even when she can't be with him physically, she'll call to try to life (sic) his spirits and make sure he's eating."
"(They) feel that renewing their vows is a perfect idea. They're grateful to have each other." Douglas, 66, and Zeta-Jones, 41, have two children together - 10-year-old son Dylan and seven-year-old daughter Carys.
