Suzanne Somers and Alan Hamel are still crazy about each other 55 years after they started dating. Somers shared a Valentine’s Day post on Instagram celebrating her ongoing love for her longtime husband.
“Valentine’s Day is normally where we pledge our love to those we love, but for me it’s another sensational day in my life with the most beautiful man I’ve ever known,” she captioned a black and white photo of the couple in their early years.“He treats me like fine china; respectful, awestruck, tenderly, carefully. When we recited those words, “in sickness and in health,” it is evident that he took it to heart. I can count on @therealalanhamel for anything and I love him with my entire being.
“I look at him all through the day and night and he is every thing I ever dreamed of,” she concluded the message. “Happy Valentine’s Day, Alan. I love you ❤️”
Somers has never been one to shy away from telling the world how madly in love she remains with Hamel, telling People in 2020, “I’ve never enjoyed anybody in my whole life the way I enjoy Al.”
“We worked hard to get to this place where we’re comfortable,” she continued. “And we are so content together. We dance together, and we have a cocktail together at night. It’s romantic and sexy. And it’s not old people romantic. It’s cool!”
The couple tied the knot in 1977 after dating for several years prior. They both welcomed children in previous marriages, but chose to only focus on each other in their own relationship, never having shared children with one another.
Somers has been extremely open about their intimate relationship, especially in her later years, emphasizing the importance that just because they’re both getting older, the romantic aspect of their relationship “isn’t over”.
“We’re nude in our bedroom a lot,” she openly admitted in 2020. “My body is not perfect but Alan tells me it is. He sees what he loves, and that makes me feel good.”
She’s also given many tips on how they still stay happy after nearly 60 years of being together.
“We don’t fight and we don’t have moody days. I wake up in the morning with a spring in my step.”
In an interview with the Daily Mail earlier this year, Suzanne said her and her husband try to “compliment and spoil each other” as much as they can.
“It’s about honoring and respecting one another and giving your partner what they need. He starts off my day in a romantic bliss, and we just try to keep it going.”
The Three’s Company actress said it’s very important to “give each other a lot of attention” so that they both still feel special in each other’s eyes.
“That seems simple, but you’d be amazed at how many couples don’t remember to give one another a lot of attention,” she told US Weekly in 2021. “It’s not, like, a chore for us. I love to hug him and rub his hair. He tells me I’m beautiful all the time and we hold hands while we sleep. It’s the most beautiful part of my life,” adding, “I’ll wake up and we’re holding hands all the time!”
She also frequents her social media as a platform to express her everlasting love for Hamel, tributing their 44th wedding anniversary in a 2020 collage video and, more recently, in a before-and-after post on Instagram she shared back in January, captioning the photo, “Still smiling 55 years later”.
At 76 and 86, they keep the fire burning, a concept that comes easy to the couple, even though she never thought she was capable of being this passionate still, all these years later.
“Aging is about worn out parts, so your hormones start declining, your nutrients start declining, your minerals start declining,” she continued. “So, what I write about in my books is how to put it all back together again. Our kids are raised, we paid for the weddings, we paid for the education and it’s now just me and Al. And, God, we are having a great time. Yes, we have a lot of sex because we’re in balance, but also I have seven drinks a week too.”
