Celebrity parents Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas are celebrating 15 years of marriage today! Melanie and Antonio met on the set of ‘Two Much’ back in 1995 and were married in 1996.
Melanie and Antonio share a daughter, Stella, 14. Melanie is also mom to Alexander and Dakota, from her two previous marriages.
Last year they gave a very open interview where Antonio gushed about his love for his wife:
“in our case there were people who literally didn’t give us more than six months! But we love each other and above all we love our family. We’ve figured out how to get past obstacles – and some of them have been really tough ones – in our relationship; and if you get past those you only get stronger.
“If we’d given up – and I’m not the kind of person who does – we probably wouldn’t be together anymore. We keep moving forward, and each day we become even more united. I still love my wife, and the concept of family is very important to us. It gives us strength…”
On falling in love with her over and over:
“I wouldn’t be able to count, but it’s a lot. There are days that I’ve fallen in love with her many times over, because of things that she’s done. For example, we have a real laugh taking photos. There have been times with our daughter that we couldn’t even take the picture because Melanie was cracking up. I’d look at her, so happy, so beautiful, so healthy, and for me it was a reaffirmation.”
These photos are of the couple attending the Cannes Film Festival this week. I can’t think of a better place to celebrate an anniversary than in France!
