Australian-born actor Hugh Jackman has been lighting up both big and small screens since the early 1990s. Nearly 30 years later, the blockbuster star has the distinction of being one of the finest in his craft. 

Though fans know all too well their favorite Jackman films, not much is known about the Kate & Leopold star's personal life. Jackman has been married to his wife Deborra-Lee Furness since 1996, meeting a year earlier during production of the Australian TV series Correlli.

"Deb, she was a big star. I get picked up, and Deb is in the front seat of the car. I'll never forget. She took off her seatbelt and she turned around and put out her hand and took off her sunglasses and said, 'Hi, I'm Deborra-Lee Furness, nice to meet you.'

"I remember thinking, 'I like this girl,'" Jackman said, via E News.

The longtime couple have two children together, Oscar and Ava, both adopted. Jackman and Furness have always been vocal about their struggles with infertility and life as a family of four. Son, Oscar Maximilian, their oldest, has garnered a lot more attention as of late. Read on for a little more context about the rising star.
