Christian Bale and Sibi Blazic celebrated their anniversary in a sweet and low-key way.

The couple was spotted riding bikes along the Californian coastline on their 19th wedding anniversary on Tuesday — a day before the actor turned 45! Bale and Blazic were seen smiling while pedaling side-by-side during the sunny outing.

The parents of two both wore sunglasses and workout clothes in dark tones for the ride. Bale and Blazic married on Jan. 29, 2000 and have two children: daughter Emmeline, 13, and son Joseph, 4. The actor most recently thanked them in his acceptance speech at the Golden Globes, sweetly calling them “Banana and Burrito.”

“Thank you to my beautiful wife who said less is more,” Bale said at the beggining of his acceptance speech for playing Dick Cheney in Vice. “Say less right now, she knows the dumb crap that can come out of my mouth sometimes. I can sink and ruin a perfectly good movie and a so-so career in one speech. I wouldn’t be working without her.”

He continued, “And thank you for our beautiful children, Banana and Burrito. They’ve given me a love and a soul I never thought possible.”

Though the actor chooses to keep his personal life private and doesn’t often talk about his family, he opened up about how happy they made him in an Esquire profile in 2010.

“I’ve got incredible pride for my family,” he said. “I’ve absolutely fallen into that cliché of a dad who could just happily talk about my daughter endlessly, but it’s not what I’m about in terms of being an actor. I don’t want people to know about that.”
