Julia Roberts published a post where she honors husband Danny Moder on his 53rd birthday on Monday morning.
The Oscar-winning actress took to Instagram and shared a surfing snapshot with a declaration of love for her cinematographer partner on his significant day.
‘Celebratory Wishes,‘ Roberts mentioned alongside a multitude of festive emojis. ‘You brighten my world.’
The cheerful couple has 17-year-old twins Phinnaeus and Hazel and 14-year-old son Henry.
Roberts encountered Danny while collaborating on The Mexican and subsequently got united in 2002.
He posted a charming throwback photo last year before the pair was married to commemorate 20 years of life and love.
Julia’s been industrious and was most recently shooting her forthcoming romantic comedy Ticket To Paradise in Australia, which reunites her with her Ocean’s Eleven co-stars George Clooney.
Who Is Julia Roberts’s Spouse, Daniel Moder?
In contrast to his superstar wife, Moder works behind the scenes. According to the source, Daniel Moder is a cinematographer and camera operator based in L.A.
The 52-year-old studied psychology at the University of Colorado Boulder in 1992, then proceeded to work on his debut film, Crimson Tide, as a production assistant in 1995. Since then, he’s worked on numerous movies, and some of his most significant credits include Dead to Me, Spider-Man 3, and Mr & Mrs. Smith.
Moder Was Nominated For An Emmy Award
In 2014, Moder was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Cinematography for a Miniseries Or Movie for his work on The Normal Heart. The film also earned him a nomination for the OFTA Television Award for Best Cinematography in a Non-Series.
How Did Danny Robert Meet Julia Roberts?
Danny and Julia met on the set of The Mexican in 2002. Both were in relationships, as Julia was dating Miss Congeniality star Benjamin Bratt, and Daniel was married to make-up artist Vera Steimberg.
Dismissing that their relationship was the reason for Danny’s separation from Vera in an interview with Oprah, the Notting Hill star explained: “He resolved his whole situation, completely independent of me. And I resolved my life, separate and independent from him. I believe that’s the only reason we were ultimately able to fall in love with each other and be together.”
When she was asked about the T-shirt, she said: “You know what that was about? It was private. I stand by my T-shirt.”
Julia Roberts And Danny Robert Engagement And Marriage
Julia and Danny’s relationship has always been very low-key, to the extent that instead of sporting an extravagant engagement ring, Julia opted for a simple emerald ring that was reportedly bought at a shopping center for around £3,000.
The pair tied the knot in 2002 at Julia’s ranch in New Mexico but have always kept details about their special day under wraps. According to AOL News, attendees revealed that Julia wore a pink cotton dress for the ceremony, while Danny wore a ruffled shirt.
Rumors Of Their Separation
Despite rumors that the couple had terminated their relationship after being seen together for several months, Julia dismissed the reports by sharing a lovely photo of herself enjoying a holiday with her spouse.
In the photo, the pair laughed and embraced each other, and the actress wrote: “Oh Summer, thank you! You made us happy and brave. We cherished every moment of sun-drenched JOY. #familytime.”
They’ve disproved the rumors since and appear more contented than ever together.
Moder And Roberts Children
They certainly do. In 2004, the pair welcomed their twins, Hazel Patricia Moder and Phinnaeus Walter Moder. And in 2007, Roberts gave birth to their son, Henry Daniel Moder.
Since the couple is notoriously private regarding their personal lives, there are not too many posts about their kids on social media. Nonetheless, there have been infrequent instances where Moder shared pictures of their children.
For instance, to honor Roberts on Mother’s Day in 2019, Moder paid tribute with a family photo and wrote, “That lovely mama in the middle. We love you so much.”
