They have been married for almost 30 years and Brosnan says he is "very proud of her, and I always seek to be worthy of her love."
Pierce Brosnan has given the appropriate reaction to individuals on social media who criticize his wife's weight. Social media can be a cruel and judgemental place at times, as demonstrated by a recent interaction involving Brosnan and his wife Keely Shaye Smith, reports Joe.
In a since-deleted Facebook post, a woman published two side-by-side photographs of Brosnan and Smith on the beach: one from the 1990s, when Brosnan was at the height of his James Bond stardom, and the other from today. She probably assumed that tagging her spouse with the message "this is us %" would be the end of it, but that's rarely the case with social media.
After the couple argued, with the husband insisting "we do not look that fat," and the poster responding "close to it," the profile was temporarily banned for casual fat-shaming until Brosnan himself spoke out against the photograph in the issue. Brosnan defended his long-term spouse, saying, "Friends offered her surgery to reduce her weight. But I strongly love every curve of her body. She is the most beautiful woman in my eyes. And also because she had our five children."
He further added, "In the past, I truly loved her for her person, not only for her beauty, and now I’m loving her even more that she is my children’s mother. And I am very proud of her, and I always seek to be worthy of her love."
Brosnan has been married to Keely for nearly 30 years and they have two beautiful children together. From 1980 until her death in 1991, the actor was married to Cassandra Harris. Brosnan and Harris welcomed their son Sean during their first marriage. After their father died, the actor adopted Harris' daughter Charlotte and son Chris from a previous marriage, reports US Magazine. Harris died of ovarian cancer in 1991, and he also lost Charlotte in 2013 to the same illness, per RSVP Live.
He spoke at the time of Harris' death, "When your partner gets cancer, then life changes. Your timetable and reference for your normal routines and the way you view life, all this changes. Because you're dealing with death. You're dealing with the possibility of death and dying. And it was that way through the chemotherapy, through the first-look operation, the second look, the third look, the fourth look, the fifth look."
After meeting Smith on a vacation in Mexico in 1994, the actor found love again. In 2001, the pair married after nearly seven years of dating.
Brosnan said in an interview with The Independent, "She has this strength that I wouldn’t be able to live without. When Keely looks at me, I go weak."
