Hugh Jackman and his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, have made the announcement that they are parting ways after being married for 27 years and raising two children together. 
In a statement, the couple mentioned that they had been fortunate to spend nearly three decades together as husband and wife in a beautiful and loving marriage. They also stated that their journey was now shifting, and they had chosen to separate in order to pursue their individual growth.
They continued by expressing that their family has been and will always be their utmost priority. They also stated that they approach the next chapter of their lives with gratitude, love, and kindness. Additionally, they conveyed their deep appreciation for understanding and respecting their privacy as their family navigates this transition in all of their lives.

The meeting 

Jackman and Furness first crossed paths while working on the television series "Corelli" in 1995 and subsequently tied the knot the following year. The two prominent Australian actors are parents to Oscar, aged 23, and Ava, aged 18. 

Jackman & Furness’s journey

Jackman recently honored their most recent wedding anniversary with a heartfelt tribute to Furness in April. “I love you so much,” Jackman wrote in an Instagram post at the time. “Together we have created a beautiful family. And life. Your laughter, your spirit, generosity, humor, cheekiness, courage, and loyalty is an incredible gift to me.”

Over the years, the couple has frequently graced the red carpet together, making appearances at events like the Oscars, various Broadway functions, and even the Met Gala, including the most recent one held in May. Additionally, they attended Wimbledon together in July.

Individual Lives
Deborra-Lee Furness, aged 67, is renowned for her advocacy work in support of orphans and adoption, particularly in her home country of Australia. She is also one of the founding members of National Adoption Awareness Week. The 67-year-old actress is set to make her return to acting in the upcoming Australian film titled "Force of Nature: The Dry 2."

Hugh Jackman, aged 54, known for his portrayal of the superhero Wolverine in multiple films, is set to reprise the role in "Deadpool 3," although production has been put on hold due to an ongoing actor's strike. A few years back, the actor who played Logan shared pictures from their wedding day on their anniversary via social media. 

In their statement released on Friday, they signed it as "Deb and Hugh Jackman" and concluded with the assertion that this is the only statement they will make regarding their separation.
