RFK Jr. Thanks Wife Cheryl Hines 'for the Endless Laughter' in Anniversary Post
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. thanked his wife, actress Cheryl Hines, for her "generous spirit” and for providing him with "endless laughter" in a sweet Instagram post marking their sixth wedding anniversary on Monday.
"Happy Anniversary, Love," Kennedy, 66, posted on Instagram, along with a series of photos showing him and Hines, 54, traveling together — and one of the two beaming together on their wedding day.
"Thanks for the unimaginable happiness, for your wise and compassionate counsel, for your generous spirit, for your faithful companionship in joy and grief, for the love you’ve given our children," he wrote, adding, "And for the endless laughter."
Hines also shared photos of her and her husband together on her Instagram, including a selfie and a photo of the couple taken during a visit to the ancient city of Sacsayhuamán outside Cusco, Peru.
"Happy anniversary, honey!" she wrote. "We’ve been around the world and back and I’ve loved every minute with you. You really understand me and what’s important to me. I appreciate you in every way."
The couple wed at the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, under a tent at a home once owned by former President John F. Kennedy and former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Kennedy Jr.’s uncle and aunt.
“It’s fun that the two families are coming together,” Hines told PEOPLE that June. “It’s very sweet that way. I come from a big family and the Kennedys are a big family. It feels natural. It feels fun.”
Other wedding guests included David as well as Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Sen. Ed Markey and Kevin Nealon and Ed Begley Jr, PEOPLE previously reported.
“It feels great because you know you are going to be with the person you really like to be with for a very long time,” Hines said after the wedding. “And that’s a great feeling.”
As one of the most prominent members of his family, Kennedy Jr. has attracted controversy in recent years over his public position against vaccination — a view some of his relatives criticized last year.
He has two children with his first wife, Emily Black, and four kids from his marriage to Mary Richardson Kennedy, who died in 2012.
Hines has a 16-year-old daughter, Catherine Rose, from her previous marriage to Paul Young.
