Dominic West Poses with Wife and Kids for 'Happy Christmas' Photo at Family Castle in Ireland

Dominic West and his family are sending Christmas greetings.

The Affair actor, 51, posed alongside his wife, Catherine FitzGerald, and their four children — two boys and two girls, ages 14, 12, 11 and 7 — at FitzGerald's family estate, Glin Castle, in County Limerick, Ireland. (West is also father to a 22-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.)

In the photo, FitzGerald, 49, a landscape designer, stands in the center with her children and husband spaced out on either side of her.

"Happy Christmas from Glin Castle!" the photo was captioned on Instagram via the castle's account on Wednesday.

In a previous House and Garden feature, West said Glin Castle is at "the core" of his wife's "being."

"The story of this place is so romantic and so melancholy," he told the outlet, adding, "Glin enriches my life and my kids' lives in terms of identity and continuum. My children are surrounded by Irish wit and humanity. They have a far broader existence than they would anywhere else in the world."

The family photo comes over two months after West and FitzGerald publicly spoke out following the actor's cozy outing in Rome with his Pursuit of Love costar Lily James. The couple addressed reporters outside of their home in London, kissing and posing for photos with a sheet of paper that read: "Our marriage is strong and we're very much still together. Thank you. Catherine and Dominic."

West married FitzGerald in 2010. The actor spoke to U.K. Esquire in 2018 about raising his kids between London and Glin Castle.

"I have led my family out of London slightly against their will, and [I] quite legitimately want my children to be around plants and animals more than they perhaps might be in London," he said at the time. "I do like history and I do like old buildings. I'm also conscious of my wife's father and his and her legacies. He worked in conservation in Ireland, to try and preserve these old buildings, which were out of favor for many years."

"It's up to us to try and keep that going," he continued. "Because when they're bought by hotels and the like, they're often destroyed."
