Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness Jackman’s 27-year marriage is gone, according to TODAY.com’s sources.
Hugh and Deb Jackman provided further facts in a statement made on September 15th, originally reported by People and verified by TODAY.
“We have been blessed to spend nearly three decades as husband and wife in a wonderful, loving marriage.” Our path has changed, and we have chosen to part to pursue our respective development.”
“Our family has been and will always be our highest priority,” the statement said. “With gratitude, love, and kindness, we embark on the next chapter.” We appreciate your consideration for our privacy while our family navigates this adjustment in all of our lives.”
“This is the sole statement either of us will make,” the Jackmans concluded.
The Australian actors will celebrate their 27th anniversary in April 2023.
“I love you Deb,” the “X-Men” actor captioned a snapshot of the pair on Instagram.
“Today marks the 27th anniversary of our marriage. 27 YEARS!! I adore you to pieces. We’ve built a lovely family together. And then there’s life. Your enthusiasm, generosity, humour, cheekiness, bravery, and loyalty are a wonderful gift to me. “I adore you from the bottom of my heart.”
Hugh and Deborra-Lee Jackman have two children, Oscar, 23, and Ava, 18, whom they adopted as infants.
“To clarify, Deb and I have always wanted to adopt. Hugh Jackman told Katie Couric in 2012, “So that was always in our plan.” “We didn’t know where in the process that would happen, but we tried biologically and it wasn’t happening for us, and it’s a difficult time.” We used IVF, and Deb had two miscarriages. I’ll never forget the miscarriage – it occurs in one out of every three pregnancies, although it’s seldom spoken.”
“It’s almost secretive, so I hope Deb doesn’t mind me bringing it up now,” he continued. It’s more prevalent and more difficult. You must go through a period of mourning.”
Oscar and Ava Jackman are the children of Hugh and Deborra-Lee Jackman.
Oscar Jackman, who was born on May 15, 2000, was adopted by the Jackmans.
When Oscar was born, “all the heartache (of miscarriage) just melted away,” according to the “Wolverine” star.
The Jackmans educated their children to be culturally aware.
“When my son was younger, we found out he was part Bosnian, so we went and got this Croatian/Bosnian cookbook, and he was very proud to carry that around when he was 7 years old,” Deborra-Lee Jackman told People in 2020. “Because my daughter is of Mexican descent, we’ve visited Mexico.”
Oscar didn’t consider his father to be a celebrity until he began interested in females.
“Once upon a time, he was on the beach. Hugh Jackman told ET in 2018: “He was talking to a girl, he was about 13, he was talking to a girl, I guess she was about 15, and he started walking towards me.” “He approached me and began walking ahead of the girl, saying, ‘Dad, Dad, Dad, she’s coming over.’” ‘You’re Wolverine, just go with it,’ I urged her. “I told myself, ‘I am the wingman for my 13-year-old boy.’”
18-year-old Ava Jackman
As a newborn, the Jackmans adopted their daughter Ava.
Hugh Jackman raved over Ava, then four, in 2009.
“(She) loves school,” he said to Couric. “She comes home and tells me about her day,” he continues, adding, “she’s loving life and she’s just like Deb.” It’s incredible to witness.”
He regarded his daughter as self-sufficient.
“She wouldn’t be fed until she was six months old, and you couldn’t put a spoon to her mouth,” he continued. “She could do it by herself.”
The tiny girl thought her surroundings were nice.
“She goes around the house closing drawers, picking things up,” he said.
Hugh Jackman’s favourite film is “The Greatest Showman” (2017), in which her father portrays P.T. Barnum, co-founder of the Barnum & Bailey Circus.
“My daughter said, ‘This is the best movie you’ve ever done,’” he boasted to E! Insider that year. “So, that was nice.”
Ava, on the other hand, refused to let her father record a song for the film. “She said, ‘No, you should lip sync,’” Hugh said.
The father also said that Ava is a “massive” admirer of his “Greatest Showman” co-star Zendaya.
“When I found out she was interested in the role, I asked my daughter, ‘Have you heard of Zendaya?’ and she replied, ‘Yeah, what do you mean?’” “It was totally like, ‘You are going to be in a movie with her?’ like I finally made it,” he said to E! Insider.
Hugh said that his daughter and her friends rushed to the filming location.
“I’ve never seen her so star-struck, she was totally starstruck,” he continued.
