Garner, 49, wrote a heartfelt message to the Alias alum, 52, in the caption. She said, 'I always knew this guy to be a true gentleman and a brilliant actor. He didn't say no to my two daughters and me straggling him to a local ice cream shop.'
The Elektra star added, 'I've shared a few decades with you, friend. You've created a family, a career, and a life that makes us all proud. The love you and Shannon have for each other is a sight to behold.'
