Julia Roberts and Danny Moder have been married a wonderful 22 years.

To celebrate their copper anniversary, Roberts took to Instagram to share an incredibly romantic photo of the two of them kissing passionately.

She captioned it simply, "TWENTY TWO YEARS," with a collection of emojis including an American flag (for their July 4 wedding date) and a string of hearts.

Rita Wilson—herself married an impressive 35 years to husband Tom Hanks—wrote, "Lovers!!!!! Happiest of days to you both!!!!"

Well wishes also poured in from the likes of Roberts' stylist Elizabeth Stewart and Table for Two host Bruce Bozzi (who recently sat down for a conversation with Roberts' niece Emma).

Roberts and Moder have been married since 2002, having met on the set of The Mexican in 2000, per Us Weekly. They share twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, 19, and son Henry, 17.

Though the spouses are relatively low-key, seldom appearing on red carpets together, the Notting Hill actress has still spoken out about how special their relationship is on many occasions over the years.

For example, to mark Moder's birthday in January, she wrote on Instagram, "Happy Birthday to this amazing man who lights up our world."

That same month, Roberts also credited her happy marriage with keeping her looking so beautiful and glowing.

Speaking to Richard Curtis for British Vogue, she explained her secret to a youthful glow as follows: "Good genes, leading a life that is fulfilling, and I have said this—and I say it usually as kind of a joke—but I do believe in the love of a good man," she said. "I believe that my husband loves me and cares for me in a way that makes me feel deeply, deeply happy. And anytime you see someone who’s happy, it doesn’t matter how old they are."

And here I was thinking I could avoid crying today...
