Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Separate After 27 Years of Marriage and the Reason Is Unexpected

One of Hollywood’s longest lasting couples, Hugh Jackman, 54, and Deborra-Lee Jackman, 67, shocked audiences when they shared the news that they are going their separate ways. The duo, who share 2 children, have been together for half their lives and the reason for their soon-to-come divorce has been revealed, and it’s nothing like what people expected.

Hugh and Deborra-Lee met in 1995.

Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness met on the set of the Australian TV series Correlli in 1995, on the first day of the actor’s first job after drama school.

“She was a big star. Everyone loved Deb. I get picked up by the car and Deb is in the front seat of the car. I get in the backseat. She had sunglasses on, she took off her seatbelt, turned around and said ‘Hi, I’m Deborra-Lee Furness, nice to meet you.’ and I remember thinking, ‘I like this girl’.”

6 weeks into filming, Jackman noticed a man courting Deborra-Lee, and he thought “that man has a crush on her”. That’s when he realized he was actually jealous of the man, and he had a crush on her himself. A few days later, after not talking to her for one week, he confessed his feelings and to his surprise, she reciprocated; she told him she was also crushing on him and that’s how their love story began.

After 11 months of dating, Hugh and Deborra-Lee tied the knot.

Over the following years, the couple struggled with infertility and experienced many failed IVF attempts and sadly, multiple miscarriages, all of which were “particularly difficult on Deb,” Jackman shared. Becoming parents was always their plan, Jackman shared, “We thought we’d have a kid or two biologically and then adopt. But when we decided we’d had enough of IVF, we went ahead with adoption.”

In 2000, they adopted their eldest son, Oscar, now 23 years old, and their daughter Ava, in 2005, who recently turned 18.

Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee had a happy life together.

The two never missed a moment to show each other and the world how much they mean to each other. Every single year Jackman honored his wife by publicly sharing how much he loves her and fans always admired and gushed over the outpour of love.

In April 2023, on their 27th and last wedding anniversary, Jackman shared a loving tribute to his wife, stating, “27 YEARS! I love you so much, and together we have created a beautiful family. And life. Your laughter, your spirit, generosity, humor, cheekiness, courage, loyalty is an incredible gift to me. I love you with all my heart.”

Just a few months later, one of Hollywood’s most loved duos announced their separation.

In a joint statement, Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee announced, “We have been blessed to share almost 3 decades together as husband and wife in a wonderful, loving marriage. Our journey now is shifting, and we have decided to separate to pursue our individual growth.

Our family has been and always will be our highest priority. We undertake this next chapter with gratitude, love, and kindness. We greatly appreciate your understanding in respecting our privacy as our family navigates this transition in all of our lives.”

2023 brought many Hollywood couples to a stop, with many celebrities divorcing after years spent together. Another recent divorce was Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s and their reason, although different than the ex-Jackmans’, is equally devastating.

A Woman “Married” to a Ragdoll Gives Birth to Twins, Shares Pregnancy Story

A woman, 39, tied the knot with her ideal husband, who happens to be a ragdoll. They had a grand wedding. The couple is now parents to twin babies and are overjoyed. The woman is sharing how her life has been transformed since becoming a mother and how her unique family is doing.

An unusual marriage.

Meirivone Rocha Moraes had given up on finding a faithful and honest partner. Her unsuccessful search disheartened her. After hearing her daughter’s woes, Meirivone’s mother decided to step in.

She crafted a life-sized ragdoll named “Marcelo” for Meirivone. Surprisingly, Meirivone fell in love with Marcelo. They exchanged vows in a charming ceremony, both looking their finest.

They were happy to expand their family.

A year after welcoming their son Marcelinho, the family with a unique story shared the news of expecting another child. Meirivone and her ragdoll husband, Marcelo, embrace the unexpected joys of their life together.

They threw a vibrant gender reveal party among loved ones, where a burst of pink smoke on social media signaled the anticipated arrival of their daughter, Marcela. However, it turned out that Meirivone was blessed with twins.

They both make efforts to raise the children.

In the home of Meirivone and Marcelo, everyone contributes to the family, even the ragdoll father and the toy children. The arrival of the twins has brought twice the activity and emotions. Marcelo, despite being a ragdoll, is portrayed as sharing in the daily care, helping with tasks like bathing, feeding, and putting the children to sleep.

The twins made it harder for the family to sustain.

Marcelo, the ragdoll father, feels the pressure as his family’s needs grow, including more food, clothing, and healthcare costs. Yet, his aspiration to have a loving family with children keeps him going, turning each obstacle into a step closer to his ideal life.

Marcelo and Meirivone have big dreams for their family, including owning their own home. Marcelo has been consistently looking online for a house since they got married, Meirivone notes. They remain committed to this goal through all the highs and lows.

The family also faced some struggles.

Their family’s story took a tense turn when Meirivone reported that their son Marcelinho was kidnapped and held for ransom. The intense search efforts, which involved social media and local community outreach, brought a new level of drama to their lives. Thankfully, Marcelinho was found unharmed.

Meirivone has had her share of troubles, too, having accused Marcelo of being unfaithful twice, based on a text from a friend. This revelation upset her greatly, leading her to have Marcelo sleep separately. Despite these issues, their relationship is now stronger than before.

In related news, another woman has gained attention for her collection of doll children, investing $7.5K in 13 artificial infants. Read her story here.
