motel  romantic love

Pretty Woman Julia Roberts dined out with husband Danny Moder Tuesday evening in Malibu, at the beachfront Malibu Inn ... with the entire balcony to themselves.

The couple will celebrate their ninth anniversary this July 4th -- and the romance is obviously still very much alive!

They have three children - twins Phinnaeaus and Hazel, 6; and Henry, 3 (he'll turn 4 next month).

Julia told Allure magazine in 2009, after taking a year off to be with her kids, that home life can "lose it's luster a little bit." But she revealed her secret to a happy marriage and happy children, saying, "The coolest thing you can do for your children is to love each other in their presence."
