Matthew McConaughey and his wife, Camila Alves McConaughey, are celebrating 12 beautiful years of marriage, and they've marked the occasion with a romantic photo that'll get you in the feels.

On Instagram, the Interstellar star, 54, celebrated the milestone anniversary with an intimate photo of himself kissing his wife's forehead while sporting a cowboy hat. "Thank you," the actor captioned the post, including the hashtag "#happyanniversary."

McConaughey and Camila—a model and designer—first crossed paths at a club in 2006. And according to McConaughey, he was instantly smitten. In 2016, he told People, "Out of the corner of my eye, this sort of aqua-green figure went floating across the frame about 20 feet in front of me. My eye went up and I remember what came out of my mouth. I didn’t say, 'Who is that?' I went, 'What is that?'"

He continued, "As l was trying to get that’s attention across the room, I went in my head, 'This is not the kind of woman you call over across the room, McConaughey. Get your ass out of your chair and go get her.' Which I did."

After six years of dating, the couple got engaged on Christmas Day in 2011 and tied the knot in June 2012. The couple held a private Catholic ceremony in Austin, Texas.

The couple share three children: Levi (15), Vida (14), and Livingston (11). While chatting with People in April, he revealed that becoming a father has helped his career.

He said, "Having children I know has made me a better artist and has made me a better actor, because kids see things for the first time all the time. Their questions are innocent. I become a better storyteller because I have kids, meaning, I come home from work on something like True Detective, and my 4-year-old kid goes, 'What'd you do today?' I cannot tell them what the show's really about, it's not age-appropriate. So I have to go into a parable for them."

Congrats to Matthew and Camila on 12 years!
