Happy Birthday, Dylan! Catherine Zeta-Jones is not like a regular mom, she’s a cool mom — and here's the evidence. To celebrate her son Dylan's 17th birthday, she made the sweetest montage of her family's home videos and posted it to Instagram for all of us to swoon over. The 47-year-old actress captioned the video, "Don’t ‘START ME UP’ on how much I love you. 17 years old today! Happy Birthday, sweetheart."
The cute pun is a shout-out to the song Start Me Up by Dylan’s idols, The Rolling Stones. The clip shows home videos of his dad and Catherine's hubby, Michael Douglas, grandfather, Kirk Douglas, and little sister Carys. Dylan appears to be a vivacious, adventurous young man — the clips show him sliding into a room à la Risky Business, surfing, skating, riding dirt bikes, dancing, playing guitar, and performing in a band.
It’s clear that showbiz genes runs in the family. Catherine candidly spoke to Jimmy Kimmel earlier this year about how both Dylan and 14-year-old Carys have already dreamt about performing and show business. “You know, I know it's going to be hard for them, because they’ve got their grandfather, Kirk, they've got me, they have Michael, but they so inherently love it and they’re good!” the Feud star candidly shared.
“They go to summer camp every year — they do like three musicals and straight plays — and they love it. I’ve had a wonderful life in this business, so if they want to do it, they know the hardships and the percentages of who makes it and who doesn’t, so I just think that they've got the talent and I know that they have the drive,” she continued.
