Lookin’ smart!

Michael Douglas takes his little theatergoers — son Dylan Michael, 9, and daughter Carys Zeta, 6 ½ — to Saturday afternoon’s Nutcracker Family Benefit, hosted by the New York City Ballet & the School of American Ballet and held at Lincoln Center in the Big Apple.

Although the family normally resides in Bermuda, they’ve take up city living for a bit as wife Catherine Zeta-Jones appears in the Broadway revival of A Little Night Music, currently in previews and opening on December 13th.

LOVE this family and selfishly i have to say i am glad they re living in NYC at the moment because we get to see more of them! what beautiful kids. Dylan seems so poised. Carys is beautiful too!

Anon on

Dylan’s his mom’s face whereas Carys is more like her dad, IMO

Natasha on

I think they’re both good mixes of their parents but Carys looks more like the Douglas family.

So cute! they look more like their Welsh mom in my opinion but they are lovely children.

Isn’t it Nutcracker Suite, not Sweet?

Carys has the Douglas family chin.


Yes, the caption is a play on words.

I think Carys has her mother’s mouth, but looks more like Michael otherwise, and I think Dylan looks like Catherine.

Wow, Michael looks even more like Kirk with his hair graying!

CTBmom on

Both kids are beautiful. Carys definitely favors her father, while Dylan looks so much like his mother

I haven’t seen the Douglas kids in years. I remember at the Oscars him showing a picture of baby Carys. They are growing up so fast.

Yes the boys is poised like his mom but I saw pictures of the litlle girl recently and she looked more like her momma there…. angles and lights maybe….. Its funny cause Kirk, Michael and Camron all look exactly alike.

Lily on

Dylan looks like his mother, Catherine. Not sure if anyone’s seen photos of Michael Douglas’ mother, Diana Dill (a.k.a. Anne Douglas) but IMO, little Carys looks a lot like her. Carys looks like her paternal grandmother (Michael’s mom). Not just now, but when the lady was younger too. http://l.yimg.com/img.omg.yahoo.com/omg/us/img/7d/d3/6363_11979014977.jpg

I actually stole their daughter’s name when naming my own baby girl in 2004. I changed the spelling though.

Veronica on

I love this family! The kids look so sweet, great photo 🙂

Electra on

I really like the name Carys and I think Dylan is very handsome! He looks a lot like freddie highmore.

bungalowbliss on

To me, the jawlines of the kiddos dictate which one looks like which parent: Carys definitely has Michael’s while Dylan has Catherine’s! Cute family.

Marilyn on

Lily: Diana Dill is Michael’s biological mother and Anne Douglas is Michaels’ stepmother. They are two different people. Kirk was married twice.

Jessi on

Erica: I LOVE the name Carys! What is the spelling that you chose?

Niko on

Damn, what gorgeous kids!. Aww, look at Carys’ chin! She has exactly the same chin as her father and grandfather, lol. So cute. Dylan definitely favors Catherine.

CelebBabyLover on

Carys looks completely different than she did in that photo of she and her dad watching the Macy’s parade!

Chris on

I forgot he had young children. Before I read the article I thought these were his grandchildren. Oops. 🙂

mommaruthsays on

These are beautiful kids! I think Dylan looks a little like Freddie Highmore (the kid from Charlie & the Chocolate Factory and Finding Neverland, among other movies) – does anyone else see the resemblence?

I’ve always wondered how you pronounce Carys? Like Carries or Careece?

Dee on

Cute cute cute…..I agree Michael is looking more and more like his dad as he gets older. I wonder if his oldest son will start to look more and more like him as he ages? Hmmmmm.

Anyways cute kids 🙂

Carys rhymes with Paris.
