Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness have made a heartfelt announcement, sharing that they are going their separate ways after an incredible 27 years of marriage.
In a statement initially conveyed to People and later confirmed by CNN, the couple expressed their deep gratitude for nearly three decades of a loving and wonderful marriage. They emphasized that their journey is now taking a different path as they embark on separate journeys of personal growth.
Family has always been their top priority, and they assured everyone that their family will continue to be of utmost importance as they transition into this new chapter of their lives. They also kindly requested privacy and understanding from the public during this sensitive time.
Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness first crossed paths while working together on the television series “Corelli” back in 1995. Their love story led to marriage the following year, and together they have two children, Oscar, who is now 23, and Ava, who is 18.
Jackman celebrated their most recent wedding anniversary with a touching tribute to Furness in April. He expressed his deep love for her and acknowledged the beautiful family and life they had built together. He described her qualities, such as her laughter, spirit, generosity, humor, cheekiness, courage, and loyalty, as incredible gifts in his life.
The statement released on Friday was signed by both “Deb and Hugh Jackman,” and they concluded it by noting that this would be the only statement they would make regarding their separation.
