Hugh Jackman Praises His “Beautiful, Amazing” Wife

Honoree Deborra-Lee Furness, who is the founder of the child advocacy organization Orphan Angels, had her biggest fan in the crowd at Monday night’s Worldwide Orphans Foundation Benefit Gala – her adoring husband Hugh Jackman.

The Wolverine star was quick to praise his wife of 13 years, telling OK!, “One of the highlights is honoring this beautiful, amazing woman who happens to be my wife, and she does amazing work and has done for many years all over the world.”

The couple, who are parents to kids Oscar, 9, and Ava, 4, seem to have a very happy and closeknit family. So what’s their secret?

“Make sure you have a date night just the two of you together, without the kids,” Hugh advises. “And don’t be afraid to tell your kids that you have no idea what you’re doing either.”

This weekend, of course, will be all about the little ones. The Aussie actor reveals that his daughter just recently decided what she wanted to be for Halloween: “I’ll help them get dressed. My daughter this morning decided she wanted to be a muffin. I said, ‘what flavor?’ and she said ‘chocolate chip.’” So cute!
