Over the weekend, Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary. In a heartwarming tribute to Deborra-Lee, Hugh shared a few throwback photos from their wedding day in 1996 on Instagram, and the smiles on their faces say it all. “Being married to you Deb is as natural as breathing,” Hugh lovingly captioned the post, which included photos of the happy couple at St. John’s Anglican Church in Toorak, Victoria. “From nearly the moment we met . . . I knew our destiny was to be together. In our 25 years — our love has only grown deeper. The fun, excitement and adventure more exhilarating; the learning even greater. I’m forever grateful to share our love, our life — and, our family together. We’ve only just begun. Deb, I love you with all my heart!”
Hugh and Deborra-Lee first met on the set of an Australian TV show called Correlli. On their wedding day, the couple exchanged rings that Hugh personally designed with a Sanskrit inscription that reads “Om paramar mainamar,” or “We dedicate our union to a greater source” in English. After Deborra-Lee experienced two pregnancy losses, the pair adopted two children, Oscar Maximilian Jackman, now 20, and Ava Eliot Jackman, now 15.
