So cute! Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas, 101, recently got to hang out with his eight-month-old great-granddaughter, and of course, the precious moment was well-documented.
In the pic, Kirk and Lua Izzy, the daughter of his grandson, Cameron Douglas, are adorably looking at one another while Kirk sits in a chair and Lua on the floor. “LOVE,” Cameron captioned the black and white snapshot. Imagine the life lessons she’s probably learning from her 10-decade-old great-grandfather?!
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Kirk as a great-grandfather, though! Earlier this year, Kirk, Lua, and proud father Cameron all posed together for the camera and it couldn’t have been any sweeter. While baby Lua snoozed away in her namesake’s arms — Kirk was born Issur Danielovitch and was called “Izzy” for short — you could just tell Cameron was cherishing the time his daughter got to spend with his beloved grandfather. “Words cannot express…. #Powerful #Bloodline,” Cameron captioned the pic on Instagram at the time.
Kirk may have recently turned 101 years old, but the Champion actor is living life to the fullest! In fact, earlier this year, he made a rare public appearance at the 2018 Golden Globes alongside his daughter-in-law Catherine Zeta-Jones. Kirk’s iconic film career was honored during the show, and then he got to go onstage to help Catherine present the award for Best Screenplay for a Motion Picture.
“Thank you. In 1991, my father-in-law, this living Hollywood legend, Kirk, was recognized by the Writer’s Guild for his role in ending the Hollywood blacklist,” Catherine said. “He not only hired blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo to write the epic Spartacus, but he also had Trumbo receive his proper screen credit for his work.” Kirk followed up the touching speech with, “I wasn’t going to speak, because I could never follow you.” So sweet!

As Kirk approaches his 102nd birthday on Dec. 9, his health is luckily still going steady. “I was lucky enough to find my soulmate 63 years ago, and I believe our wonderful marriage and our nightly ‘golden hour’ chats have helped me survive all things,” he previously shared with Closer. “I am always asked for advice on living a long and healthy life. I don’t have any. I do believe, however, that we have a purpose for being here. I was spared after a helicopter crash and a stroke to do more good in the world before I leave it.”
Cameron added of his grandfather in a previous interview: “He is a constant artist, always working on something. I think that’s the key — feeding that hunger as an artist keeps him from being bored. He is sort of cruising. I suspect he will be around for a long time!” We hope he can continue to watch his children, grandchildren, and now great-grandchildren grow!
