How better to ring in your 101st birthday than with the people you love and cherish the most? Hollywood acting legend, Kirk Douglas, has been fortunate enough to not only have lived a full, rich life, but to celebrate milestones such as this with his beautiful family.

His 98-year-old wife Anne, sons Michael and Joel, and granddaughter Kelsey were all there to sing happy birthday to Douglas as he blew out the candle on his cake which was sunflower-themed and featured “101” in large numbers on the side. According to Michael Douglas, the cake was honoring what he believed to be his father’s greatest performance as Vincent Van Gogh in the film Lust for Life.

While Michael’s wife, Oscar winner Catherine Zeta-Jones, was unable to be present for the auspicious occasion, she took to her Instagram to share a sweet photo of her and her father-in-law captioned, “101 today!!!! My darling Pappy on my knee,” she wrote in the caption. “Happy Birthday to my wonderful, inspirational and loving father in law, Kirk. Love you with all my heart. ❤️#hero”
