The power couple took to Instagram separately on Saturday (Aug 29) to post sweet tributes to each other.
“Thank you for everyone’s wonderful wishes! We had a wonderful celebration with J&J at home,” Cecilia, 39, wrote on IG. “Hubby did an amazing job with his cooking this year! Jasmine did a great job with [the photos] and helping out Baba! Love you guys!” In case you don't know, "J&J” are their two kids, Jasmine, 16, and James, who’s 13.
Cissy also posted pics of Chef Yen looking very proud of his dishes (swipe to the third and fourth pic).
Cissy, who was a model, also dedicated three IG posts of her and Donnie at a photoshoot from some years back. She went on to write a gushing message to her hubby. “From two weeks to 17 years. We bravely followed our hearts, fully devoted ourselves to each other, building our beautiful family and career. Learning so much from each other, communicating, letting the little things go (especially in the beginning), working as a couple, and making each other a better person. We have definitely grown and come a long way! Happy Anniversary hun and to many more to come! Love you,” Cissy wrote.
Her throwback pics impressed Cissy’s followers and celebs pals so much that even former bad boy Edison Chen left a comment saying that the couple are a “deadly combo”.
Not to be outdone, Donnie revealed his romantic side in a message to his wife on IG.
“17 years ago [on] this day I won the biggest award of my life! I am happier, better and completed because of you! To the most beautiful woman who has given me the most beautiful life, happy anniversary Mrs Yen, I love you so much and look forward to [the] next 17 years together with you!” gushed the 57-year-old actor.
In his post, Donnie put together a super sweet photo montage of the couple over the years. The one-minute clip featured several never-seen-before shots of the couple on past photoshoots, vacations and dates.
