Ron Howard celebrates 50th anniversary of first date with wife Cheryl

Ron Howard’s first date with his wife Cheryl is enough to knock your socks off.

The 66-year-old director reminisced about their first date 50 years ago on Instagram Sunday.

“Nov 1 1970 Cheryl & I went on our 1st date,” he wrote. “We went to see a re-release of Stanley Kramer’s ‘It’s a Mad Mad Mad World’ and then got some pizza at now defunct Barnone’s in Toluca Lake. Quite a start, right?”

The post was accompanied by a photo of his socks which were printed with 66-year-old Cheryl’s face.

“Today we are celebrating with these kind of socks we ordered (Cheryl’s w/my mug got held up) and a trip to our local take-out pizza place,” he said.

And the nostalgia didn’t stop there. Howard said they would be making their trip in the same car they drove half a century ago.

“We’ll be driving in the same ‘70 VW Bug I picked Cheryl up in 5 decades ago,” he said, adding, “It runs great. So do we.”

The couple began dating in high school and got married in 1974.

They share four children, daughters Bryce Dallas, 39, 35-year-old twins Jocelyn Carlyle and Paige Howard, and son Reed Cross, 33.
