They are one of Ireland's longest-standing and closest couples, and now the love between MCD music bosses Denis Desmond and Caroline Downey appears stronger than ever after Caroline posted a picture purported to be her initials tattooed on her husband.
The picture shows a man's hand with the initials CD - for Caroline Downey - in giant calligraphy-style typography on his marriage finger.
The Dublin couple - who have been married for over 32 years - follow in the footsteps of another rock 'n roll pair, Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee Jones, who also got matching tattoos on their ring fingers.
Underneath the photograph, Caroline simply states: "Yep... He has lost his mind!"
Her comment is followed by a host of messages from friends who are blown away by such a public show of commitment.
One said: "OMG I have just seen this! Love it!". Another simply states: "That is so sweet.x"
Denis's tattoo tribute is the most public sign yet that the high-profile couple are firmly back on track.
In 2013, Caroline gave an interview to a newspaper in which she said that she discovered her husband had been temporarily unfaithful. At the time she said: "Denis is a good person - he just made a bad choice." Meanwhile, the couple's Ronmall holding company is estimated to be worth €153m.
