Most people think that Hollywood couples don’t last long.Because of the show business’ nature of stars having to work with a lot of celebrities in their career, the tendency is that they end up being exposed to temptation and finding other partners along the way.This may be a reality for a lot of couples in the industry, but not for Pierce Brosnan and his wife, Keely.
The two of them have been married for almost three decades!Keely, who is 10 years younger than Pierce, met her would-be husband at a party in Mexico.The woman was a correspondent who was initially assigned to interview Ted Danson. She ended up having a great time with Pierce.
“Tall, dark and handsome, everything that everybody would immediately be attracted to,” Keely told People in 2001.
At the time, the James Bond actor recently lost his wife, Cassandra, to ovarian cancer. He needed someone to be with him, and Keely came at the perfect time.
Cassandra had two sons when she met Pierce, which meant that the man was left a single father since he adopted the boys shortly after he married their mom.
In 1997, three years after their wedding, Keely and Pierce decided to add more to their happy family.
Their son, Dylan, was born in January that year. Four years later, they welcomed their second son named Paris.
Being pregnant with two boys in a span of four years meant Keely had to gain weight. She was unable to shed the weight and had to carry another baby for the second time.
People expect Hollywood stars to always look impeccable, but Keely was not one to be affected by these impossible standards.
She put on extra weight because of her pregnancies, and she welcomed the change. She used to be skinny, but she also loved the fact that she has grown bigger to accommodate motherhood.
Keely is confident in her body, and her husband is also supportive of her. Their photos online show just how much they are still in love with each other, despite the changes in their physical appearances.
While the couple is not affected by other people’s comments, that did not mean they won’t stop talking and posting online.
Trolls would usually post on why a man such as Pierce would settle for Keely who has gained weight and is not as sultry or modelesque as she used to be.
One of the popular comments online came from “Teen Mom” star, Jenelle Evans.
She posted a before-and-after photo of Keely and Pierce taken 20 years apart. It showed that the couple has gained weight over the years, but they were still together and kissing like they were the only people on Earth.
Jenelle tagged her husband in the photo and captioned: “This is us.”
The post was met with internet backlash and eventually, Jenelle and her husband were temporarily banned from using their Facebook accounts.
Even their own friends have taken notice and made comments about Keely’s weight.
“Friends offered her surgery to reduce her weight,” Pierce said in an interview.
But, Pierce is in love with his wife, no matter what her size is.
