You’d think 40-year-old actor Freddie Prinze Jr. would have no problem staring directly into a lens, but when it comes to couple selfies, apparently, he's a bit camera-shy.

On Monday, Prinze Jr.’s wife, Sarah Michelle Gellar, took to Instagram to showcase the pair's off-duty Labor Day activities, which included a visit to a beach. They look comfortable in reflective sunglasses and casual gear—Prinze Jr. has on a gray tee while Gellar wears an off-the-shoulder top and her hair pulled back into an updo. While the snap may not seem like anything out of the ordinary at first glance, Gellar, 39, explains why it's so special in the caption.

“I LABORed today to get this pic (no seriously—it takes work to get @realfreddieprinze to take a pic) #happylaborday,” Gellar wrote alongside the 'gram. In the shot, they both smile for the camera and look nothing but happy.

As for how much work it truly takes to get the actor to pose for a photo, we’re not so sure. He regularly posts on his own Instagram account to offer a glimpse at his life at the gym and as a chef and cookbook author.
