Love is definitely still in the air for this Hollywood couple! Former Buffy The Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar has found the secret to maintaining her long-lasting marriage to her husband of 13-years, Freddie Prinze Jr. — and she's spilling the beans! The mom-of-two is finally revealing her main guideline when it comes to sustaining a happy and healthy relationship with her longtime love.

Much like Hugh Jackman and his wife of 20-years, Deborra-Lee Furness, or romantic crooner, Harry Connick Jr, and his wife of 21-years, Jill Goodacre, this duo is another true Hollywood example of forever love! Gellar is sharing her wise words when it comes to keeping the love alive between her, and her longtime love.

"Make the most of the moments you have," the star told People. "Take the 10 minutes — put the phone down. Have a cup of coffee together. Walk the dog at the end of the night. Read a story with your kids," suggests the star. "Make the most of the time that you have. We are all pulled in so many directions, so make sure that, whichever one you are focusing on, you're present."

So how exactly do these masters of date night celebrate the most romantic day of the year? "When you have kids, [Valentine's Day] really just becomes an expression of love," the actress told People during Swiffer's Say Yes to the Mess event earlier this week. "In this busy world, sometimes we forget to tell people [we love them]."

The doting wife, and mother of two to children, Charlotte Grace, 6, and Rocky James, 3, has certainly found creative ways to tell her Hollywood hubby that she only has eyes for him! Gellar, who founded FoodStirs, a line of kid-friendly baking and food kits, recently took to Instagram to share a sweet snapshot of her and her husband during their first dance as husband and wife. "13 years #happyanniversary 'I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me,'" the star captioned the touching tribute in honor of the couple's 13th wedding anniversary.
