Catherine Zeta-Jones sees off son Dylan to University in an emotional video post
Catherine and husband Michael Douglas' son, Dylan, flew the nest to join Brown University on Rhode Island on Sunday, and as per his mother's Instagram post, it was quite emotional.
No matter how famous you are, at the end of the day, a mother's nature will never change - as proven by Catherine Zeta-Jones. The actor might have achieved peak star status, but that didn't stop her from seeing her son Dylan off, as he left for University for the first time ever. The 18-year-old flew the nest to join Brown University on Rhode Island on Sunday, and as per his mother's Instagram page, his see-off trip was pretty emotional.
Catherine's video documentation had a lovely black-and-white aesthetic; showing the 48-year-old, her husband Michael Douglas, 73, and their 15-year-old daughter Carys - all helping out Dylan with his move. And after the joint efforts, the final result in her dorm room looked quite cool too with his Union Jack cushions honoring Catherine's British roots and along with that a Rolling Stones poster on the wall.
That's all that is known about Dylan Douglas' dorm room for now, but it's clear that being a star-kid doesn't exempt him from leading the regular student life. His dorm room is the same as any regular university student's, as Catherine's video flaunted, capturing all the little details of the very emotional moment. She captioned the video, writing: "Let the lectures really begin! I love you Dylan. Good luck in the next exciting and enlightening chapter of your life." Dylan was also seen hugging his sister goodbye, following which scene were a few snaps of him from when he was a toddler.
As expected, fans flooded the post with heartfelt comments. One social media user wrote: "Love this, will be my turn to do this in two years, feeling sad already!!!" Another one said: "I remember the baby photos. – can’t believe he is off to college. Love Dodo." A third one added: "Lovely montage of photos and memories – we are in the same position here but going into second year – am emotional time and a disbelief that time has flown by so fast – enjoy it all Dylan and Catherine the feeling of emptiness will be the weirdest thing for a while and then they come back."
Dylan was born to Catherine and Michael back in August 2000, just three months before the couple tied the knot in New York. Their daughter Carys was born in April 2003. Along with the two, Michael has also fathered 19-year-old Cameron from his first marriage.
