Another day, another celebrity anniversary! On Monday Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick celebrated their 29th wedding anniversary (which is basically unheard of in Hollywood), and the actor took to Instagram to share a slew of adorable throwback photos along with some pretty typical married text messages.

"Happy day to my life love," he captioned the first photo. He captioned the second photo with the hashtag, "#29yearsandcounting."

In the last photo, the actor gave us a glimpse of what 29 years of marriage looks like in the form of a sweet text message exchange. Apparently, someone ate a carrot that was intended for soup. Just your regular couple, people.

The Footloose actor married Sedgwick on September 4, 1988, after meeting on the set of the TV movie Lemon Sky. Back in 2008, Sedgwick opened up on their marriage to Redbook magazine, and revealed that it wasn't quite love at first sight for her. "He definitely wasn't my type," she said. "In fact, I vividly remember looking at his butt when he walked away after we first met and thinking, Well, I guess some girls like that. And now it's one of my favorite parts of his anatomy! That's probably too much information!"

On their lasting marriage, "We've been married for so long and there are no secrets. But I never in a million years thought there would be sides to Kevin that I'm still learning. [Our relationship] is like a treasure; there are layers and layers of it. I'm constantly amazed that we are still surprised and interested in each other. When I look back at our first four years ... by that time we'd had our second kid, and I look back at those pictures and I think, 'Gosh, I didn't know him at all!' I loved him, but I didn't know him, and he probably didn't know me."

"But you grow together and learn more about each other," she continued. "I think the trust gets deeper and the dependency gets deeper, which is scary. I think, because my father and mother split up when I was very young, there was a part of me at the beginning of our marriage that thought, I'm cool alone. I love him, but I'm strong enough to handle life without him. But now he is the person I count on to live and walk through life with. It's a dependency that is there and large and real and profound."
