As happy as can be: Don Johnson seems to be very happy with his wife of over 20 years. On Sunday the 70-year-old icon was seen with his spouse of over 20 years, 50-year-old Kelley Phleger, in a new Instagram photo
Don, who was was married to Melanie Griffith not once but twice, smiled as he had on a black Lakers T-shirt with his glasses tucked into the collar.
Kelley had a Lakers tank top over a shirt with patterned sweatpants.
Both were in an oversized ivory chair as they were seen at home.
The two were last seen together on a red carpet for his Knives Out premiere in 2019. And before that they were side by side at the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood premiere.
He was there because he has been friends with director Quentin Tarantino since they worked on Django Unchained in 2012.

The TV and movie star wed Phleger in San Francisco in 1999. They have three children together: Grace, 20, Jasper, 18, and Deacon, 14.
Don looked proud of his better half as he put an arm around her while smiling.
He had on a black top with white jean and brown tinted sunglasses with a California tan.
His wife wore a floral silk jacket that almost looked like a robe over white jeans. And she added gold necklaces and a bracelet.
Don – who used to party hard – changed when he met Kelley, a Montessori schoolteacher.
In 2017 he told DailyMail.com: ‘People don’t develop to the place where they can have long-lasting, mature relationships till they’re in their 30s, and for some of us it takes even longer than that.’
He said he stopped doing drugs with the help of Buddhism and New Age self help. He also let go of fear.

‘When I was a young man in Hollywood, drugs, alcohol and partying were everywhere and it was hard to escape. It doesn’t become a problem immediately, it takes time, and it led to some poor choices.’
By the late Noughties, Johnson changed, selling off his 20 cars and his ranch in Colorado which he called ‘the things that once defined Don Johnson.’ A few years later, he won a $19 million settlement for a share of the profits from Nash Bridges, which he had conceived with the writer Hunter S Thompson.
Nowadays, his only concession to fast living is a Tesla car.
Self-possessed and happy in his own skin, he has ridden the Hollywood rollercoaster and come out the other side.
His last hit was the film Book Club with Diane Keaton and Jane Fonda as well as in Knives Out.
As far as his other wives, he was wed to Melanie briefly in 1976. They wed again from 1989 until 1996. He was also involved for a while with singer Barbra Streisand.
