Michael Douglas, the renowned actor, loves being a family man. Recently, the “Fatal Attraction” star celebrated his granddaughter’s fifth birthday. The family came together to mark the occasion, and Michael’s wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, shared an image of her husband holding his granddaughter.
Michael’s granddaughter, Lua Izzy Douglas, is the child of Cameron Douglas and his wife, Viviane Thibes. Cameron is one of Micheal’s three children. His siblings are Carys Zeta Douglas and Dylan Michael Douglas.
Lua’s proud mom and dad shared a photo of their daughter enjoying herself on a swing. Her mom wished her all the best for the new year and said she loves her endlessly. Like her husband, Catherine is also a doting step-grandmother. She commented on the post, saying:
“Happy Birthday to our beautiful, smart, funny and never ever naughty Lua!!!! We love you your Zeze.”

The “Oceans Twelve” actress showed off how much fun she was having looking after a two-year-old Lua when she posted a photo of the small girl in sunglasses and a hat. The actress encouraged her granddaughter by captioning the post: “My love. Lua Douglas. Rockin’ it!!!”
Lua and her dad could also be seen together in an Instagram status update he posted to his account. Cameron squatted down, and his daughter stood in front of him in a leather bomber jacket.
Michael Feels Younger with Granddaughter Named after His Late Father
Michael wasn’t always the most present father when his oldest son, Cameron, was growing up. His job often kept him busy, and he usually needed to travel to shoot films in different locations, which meant he wasn’t home very often.
The grandfather was overjoyed to finally meet the newest addition to the Douglas family.
These days, Michael is trying to make up for all the time he missed with his son, and he has become a loving and involved grandfather. Michael was reportedly “obsessed” with his granddaughter, and she made him feel young again whenever he held her.
A source said Michael loves spending time with his granddaughter. He loves playing with her and making her laugh. The source said he “takes such pleasure from making her laugh by pulling a silly face, playing the tickle spot and chase.”
When Lua was born in 2017, her parents decided to name her after her great-grandfather, Kirk Douglas. The “Ace In The Hole” star was initially named Issur Danielovitch, and Lua gets her middle name, Izzy, from her great-granddad.
Michael’s Emotional First Meeting With Newborn Grandson
When Michael’s second grandchild, Ryder T. Douglas, was born in December 2020, the actor refrained from meeting the new baby. Due to Covid restrictions, Michael kept his distance to ensure the baby boy remained healthy. He only met the baby a month later, and he captioned a post: “First time I’ve seen my month old grandson, Ryder!”
In the accompanying image, Michael could be seen beaming while he held little Ryder in one hand and a baby’s bottle in the other. The grandfather was overjoyed to finally meet the newest addition to the Douglas family. In another post, Michael congratulated his son and his partner on the birth of their second kid: “Congratulations Cameron and Viviane! Welcome to the world Ryder T. Douglas.”
So far, Cameron is the only one of Michael’s children to have kids of their own. Michael shares his oldest son with his ex-wife, Diandra Luker, while the actor had his two younger kids with his second wife, Catherine.
Besides the birth of the second Douglas grandchild, 2020 held a few more surprises for the family. Sadly, Michael’s father, Kirk, passed away on February 5, 2020, at the astounding age of 103. The family also celebrated the 101st birthday of their step-grandmother, Anne Douglas.
The entire family paid tribute to their “Oma” with Instagram posts and loving birthday wishes dedicated to Anne. Michael thanked her for being a great stepmother, while Catherine thanked her for everything she has done for the family over the years.
