Cindy Crawford shared an adorable throwback picture on Instagram Friday to mark her 17th wedding anniversary with entrepreneur husband Rande Gerber. Crawford wed Gerber in 1998, three years after finalizing her divorce from actor Richard Gere.
Their wedding took place in a beachside ceremony in the Bahamas that made the cover of InStyle’s celebrity weddings issue the following February. The bride wore a short, lace-trimmed John Galliano slip dress and neither she nor the groom felt the need for shoes. The couple are parents to two kids, Presley, 15, and Kaia, 13.
Even after more than a decade of married life the supermodel and her handsome husband haven’t lost their spark. “17 years ago we decided to jump into life together. Happy anniversary, babe I love you!” the 49-year-old captioned the picture on Instagram.
Crawford didn’t disclose when the picture was taken. The picture shows Gerber, 53, jumping into a pool along with his beautiful wife. The model is seen holding her shirtless man’s hand while looking amazing in a revealing black bikini. Crawford also gave a shout-out to fashion photographer Arthur Elgort, who took the shot, according to People.
The mom of two also got a bunch of beautiful flowers from her husband. She posted the picture on the photo-sharing app with a simple caption: “Anniversary flowers.” The picture shows Crawford holding a big bouquet of white roses from Gerber and she appears to be either on a private jet or nestled in the leather seat of a very classy automobile.
Crawford had told "Entertainment Tonight" in February 2014 that good marriages are those for which one has to work and people who give up too early don’t realize that if they put in some extra work life will be good. The supermodel revealed that both she and her husband cherish that. She added that a couple needs to be friends first in order for the relationship to blossom. Meanwhile, Crawford recently did a cameo in Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” music video as "Headmistress." The hotly anticipated music video for Swift’s fourth single from “1989” premiered May 17 at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas.
