Please join us in wishing DAYS OF OUR LIVES stars Mary Beth Evans (Kayla) and Stephen Nichols (Steve) a very happy anniversary! The actor surprised his co-star on set on July 25 to commemorate the episode 31 years ago that day when their alter egos tied the knot in an unforgettable ceremony, and shared the video on Instagram! "31 years!" he marveled. "June 22-25, 1988, our beautiful DAYS wedding aired. NBC went all out. Shot on location in Marina del Rey. What a wonderful partnership and friendship we have shared, Mary Beth… my sweetness."
In the video, you can see that just after Evans had finished taping a scene, Nichols pulled out some flowers and presented them to his longtime costar and dear friend. The gathered cast and crew all applauded the anniversary, and Evans joked: "I think we go in the Guinness Book of World Records." The pair shared a kiss and a hug, and then posed for some pictures as everyone cheered.
Afterwards, Evans shared her own sentiments on her own Instagram. "Thank you, Stephen, for surprising me in front of our crew to celebrate our '31st anniversary,'" she expressed. "I am so happy you are back in Salem. You will be in my life and heart 'til the end of time."
Patch and Kayla have had a lot of ups and downs over the years, but they have remained one of DAYS' most popular supercouples, and a lot of that is due to the fantastic chemistry Evans and Nichols share with each other.
