Pierce Brosnan Is So in Love With Wife Keely Shaye Smith! Meet the ‘James Bond’ Star’s Spouse

While we all know the name Pierce Brosnan, you may not know who his wife, Keely Shaye Smith, is — but the actor’s second spouse is a huge part of his life. In 1980, the James Bond star tied the knot with his first wife, actress Cassandra Harris. The pair had one child together, Sean, in 1983, and in 1991, Cassandra tragically died from ovarian cancer.

“[Cassie] made me the man I am, the actor I am, the father I am,” the Mrs. Doubtfire star told People in 1992. “There is an incredible cruelty in it all, losing a person you shared everything with.”

It would take ten years for Pierce to meet someone he would fall head over heels for again, as Keely stepped into his life. The pair married in 2001 after meeting in 1994. “I had a great marriage which sadly had its own ending, and I was lucky enough to find love again. We were meant to find each other,” he explained. “I thank God for her every day.”

In April 2020, Pierce celebrated his 26th wedding anniversary with Keely. The Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again actor took to Instagram to give his beloved a sweet shout-out.

“My darling angel heart Keely, thank you for bringing such love and beauty into my life, for making these past twenty-six years the greatest joy of my life,” he wrote next to a throwback pic of the couple. “Happy anniversary my brown-eyed girl.”

The actor is so in love with his wife, he’s even been spending even more time with her in Hawaii amid the coronavirus outbreak. The two lovebirds were caught kissing on the beach while Pierce was shirtless. The dad of five was wet from swimming in the ocean, but Keely didn’t seem to mind. She held Pierce in close and enjoyed their smooch under the hot sun. How’s that for PDA?
