Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee Jackman have announced their separation after a marriage that spanned an impressive 27 years and blessed them with two children.

In a joint statement, the couple expressed gratitude for the nearly three decades they shared as a loving husband and wife, but revealed that their journey is now taking a different path as they opt to separate and focus on their individual personal growth. People magazine was the first to report on their separation. The couple emphasized that this statement would be their sole comment on the matter and underscored that their family remains their highest priority. They pledged to approach the next phase of their lives with gratitude, love, and kindness.

The news of their separation was confirmed by a representative for the couple to The Big Big News on a Friday.

Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee Jackman initially crossed paths in 1995 on the set of an Australian television show where they were both working as actors. At that time, Deborra-lee Furness had a more established career. They tied the knot in 1996 and were blessed with two children, Oscar, who is now 23, and Ava, who is 18. Hugh Jackman subsequently achieved major stardom both in Hollywood and on Broadway.

Throughout their years together, the couple became a fixture on red carpets, gracing events like the Oscars, Broadway gatherings, and the Met Gala, including the most recent edition in May. Their public appearances together continued, with a joint outing to Wimbledon in July.
