In the crazy world of Hollywood, it’s rare to find a marriage that is actually able to stand the test of time. That’s why it’s so unusual and heartwarming that former “Three’s Company” star Suzanne Somers celebrated her 44th wedding anniversary with her husband Alan Hamel on Friday!
Somers, 74, took to Instagram to celebrate by posting a touching video montage of photos of her and Hamel through the years.
“Happy Anniversary Al! My darling, @therealalanhamel – how I love being your wife. Married today 44 years and together 53 years!” she captioned the video. “I don’t want to spend a day without you. What a life! Happy Anniversary!”
“Thank you to @brucesomersjr and @carolinesomers for this beautiful video,” Somers concluded, referring to her Bruce Somers Jr. and his wife Caroline.

This comes one month after Somers told Fox News that even months of quarantine amidst the coronavirus pandemic could not break the close bond she shares with Hamel, 84.
“We are deeply in love with each other and are constantly kissing and laughing, telling each other how much we love each other,” Somers said. “Alan is very tender with me and our Facebook Live shows we do three times a week are real between us. [I have] no idea what we are going to do each time other than drink tequila and cook.”
However, she was open about the fact that her relationship with Hamel was not always smooth sailing, and she’s willing to give advice to other couples about how they can overcome the challenges of their relationships.
“Alan and I did all of our fighting in the first 10 years when we broke up on a regular basis and then an hour later worked it out,” Somers explained. “My advice, and I’m not sure what it’s worth, is to remember the early days of the relationship when everything was love and respect, sexy and very hopeful.
“We have a strange relationship,” she added. “We absolutely love being together. The pandemic hasn’t affected us. We’ve spent every minute and not one night apart in 40 years. I know it’s unusual, but it sure works for us. We are one.”
