Trolls wondered what he saw in her – but the iconic actor always has his wife’s back

Pierce Brosnan is a Hollywood heartthrob beloved by millions of women worldwide, but he is also a devoted father of five and a loving husband to his beautiful wife, Keely Shaye Smith. They have been together for more than two decades and are regarded as one of the most loved celebrity couples.

When Keely’s birthday arrived, Pierce knew he needed to do something special for the woman of his life.

The actor fell for Kelly when he saw her at a Mexican bar in 1992. They started dating two years later and married after seven years. He could tell something was different about her. In an interview with The Independent, the former James Bond star explained why Keely captivated him in the first place.

“I love her vitality, her passion. She has this strength that I wouldn’t be able to live without. When Keely looks at me, I go weak.”

She also spoke of their first date and said, “We sat under the stars and he held my hand. There were fireworks going off over our heads, and Kenny Loggins was singing. We talked until 3 in the morning.

“He was captivating,” Keely added.

“Tall, dark, and handsome, everything that everybody would immediately be attracted to. He had this mischievous sparkle in his eyes. I thought, ‘Wow! Wow!’”

One of the secrets to their long-term marriage is that they always make time for each other, no matter how busy they are with their careers.

“My wife and I took a short road trip up to Santa Barbara – we were going for a romantic weekend and to look at houses and drink great wine. We didn’t listen to any music, but we just listened to the sounds of each other’s voices and sorted out the world.”

This unwavering bond between them is what inspired Pierce to take to social media on their anniversary.

He expressed his affection for his wife on Instagram, writing, “Thank you for the love, my love, of these past 25 years, onwards.”

This was not the first time the acclaimed actor had openly expressed his sentiments regarding Keely.

On Keely’s 58th birthday, he posted a photo of her wearing black spectacles and a short purple dress, smiling at the camera. He wrote, “My beautiful luscious love Keely on her 58th trip around the sun yesterday… apres swim, making coconut water. Happiest of birthdays it was!”

A number of celebs shared birthday wishes. Rita Wilson wrote: “Happy Birthday sweet Keeyly. We will have to have a ‘nutty Keely’ in your honor!” and Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad said, “Love you two so much. ❤️.”

Marrying Keely represented a second chance at happiness for the star, who lost his first wife, Cassandra Harris, to ovarian cancer in 1991, when she was only 43. They had three children together, including Charlotte, who died of cancer in 2013 along with her mother.

Keely has gained weight over the years, and many have fat-shamed her, but her husband always has her back and makes it clear that he loves her exactly as she is. Without a doubt, she is his greatest love in life.

“Her friends offered her weight-loss surgery. However, I adore every curve in her physique. She is the most beautiful woman in my eyes. Additionally, she gave birth to our five children,” the actor was reported to have said.

Perhaps Pierce’s decision to stay with her surprises many people because Hollywood marriages aren’t “meant” to last.

We wish Pierce and Keely a life full with happiness, love, and laughter. They’re a great example of how true love can thrive in Hollywood!
