It’s been 12 years since megastar actors Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker said, “I do.”

They’re one of the few Hollywood couples who appear to be fully committed to growing in love and in life. And as usual, the pair provided the world with a very adorable example of how to love and appreciate your mate, even after the honeymoon phase has worn off.

Over the weekend, Boris took to Instagram to share a photo of his beautiful wife in honor of their anniversary along with a touching note about their bond.

“This just happened. It’s Year 12,” the star wrote. “I want to thank you for unapologetically being you, for always finding the light even when the curtains are shut, for being a model for kindness and grace to Sophie and Nico, and for continuing to write our amazing story with me. Ich hab dich lieb, Schatz.”

Mr. Kodjoe also posted an image of New York’s skyline with the caption, “Good morning NYC. #TwelvethAnniversaryWeekend #AufGehts #BorisAndNicole.”
