We’ve all seen actor Hugh Jackman’s rough and strong side in movies like “Wolverine,” but this week he went with his much softer side as he paid tribute to his wife on her birthday.


On Monday, November 30, 2020, Hugh Jackman, 52, celebrated his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness’s birthday on Instagram. The “X-Men” actor shared an image of him and his wife in his post.

He was photographed while standing behind his wife as she blew out three candles placed on a slice of cake. It appeared the couple was out dining at a restaurant to celebrate Furness’s birthday.

The star’s wife officially turned 65 this week. In the caption of his post, the “Happy Feet” voice-over artist wished his “incredible wife” a happy birthday before praising her for:

“Your courage, wit, open heartedness, loyalty, creativity, joie de vivre, cheekiness and spontaneity inspire me every day.”


The “Van Helsing” star concluded his post by sharing his love with his wife of more than twenty years. Jackman lovingly opened up about his feelings writing:

“I love you so much more than any caption can convey.”


The couple has been married since 1996 and they share two adopted children, son Oscar, 20, and daughter Ava, 15. Furness is a producer, a director, and also an actress among other things.

Last week, she sat down with “People” magazine to discuss what it was like to raise adopted children. The interview happened just before Christie’s had a sale to benefit the star’s nonprofit organization, Hopeland.


She revealed to the publication that when her son was younger, they discovered that he was part Bosnian. Furness and Jackman then got him a Croatian/Bosnian cookbook which he proudly carried around when he was just 7.

In a July 2020 interview with “Extra,” Jackman showed how straight he was when he gushed about his wife.

On the other hand, their daughter has Mexican roots and her parents honored her by taking a trip to Mexico. She and Jackman actually met on the set of the Australian TV show “Correlli” in 1995.


Furness confessed that they had an immediate connection from the get-go. According to her, Jackman knew she was the one after they had only been dating for two weeks but she’s had to defend him over the years for rumors that he might be gay.
