Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas turned 99 years old on Wednesday and his son Michael, a Hollywood legend in his own right, marked the occasion by posting a super sweet pic of the father and son on his facebook page.
Happy 99th Birthday Dad! I love you, Michael
The picture features Michael lovingly planting a kiss on his dad’s forehead with the simple caption ‘Happy 99th Birthday Dad! I love you, Michael”
Kirk told PEOPLE that he’s actually lucky to be alive! He was supposed to be a passenger on a plane that crashed and killed everyone on board back in 1958. He explains to the magazine that it was his wife who told him not to go on the plane saying “Why was I spared? I was so grateful. My wife has saved my life many times.”
Wow! That’s incredible to hear things like that. Happy birthday to Kirk, and we should all hope that we get to see our parents live this long!
