Hugh Jackman Gets Candid About Having 'Different Ideas' From Wife About Parenting

The 'Logan' actor gets candid as he talks about raising his children with wife Deborra-Lee Furness as the couple had 'really different ideas about being a parent.'

AceShowbiz - Hugh Jackman admits he and wife Deborra-Lee Furness had "different ideas" about parenting. The pair - who tied the knot in 1996 after meeting on the set of Australian TV series "Correlli" – share children Oscar, 22, and Ava, 17, but Hugh claims their pasts "came together" when they had kids and it wasn't something the couple had "pre-discussed."

"You fall in love with someone and you work out your relationship, it's great! All of a sudden, we had kids. The way I was parented, the way she was parented ... all of a sudden ... whoosh! And it wasn't just Deb and I, it was somehow our pasts coming together," he told Radio Times magazine. "We had really different ideas about being a parent. And we never really pre-discussed it. We just assumed - we love each other, we don't argue, that's going to be fine."

In April, Hugh paid tribute to his "extraordinary" wife Deborra-Lee after 26 years of marriage. He wrote on Instagram at the time, "Today I celebrate 26 years of marriage to my extraordinary wife. Every single day is filled with so much laughter, joy and backgammon!!!! Deb you light up my life. I love you with all my heart! (sic)"

Hugh previously admitted that, while some people consider marriage to be "so much work," his relationship "doesn't feel like that." He explained, "People often say, 'Oh my god, marriage is so much work.' There are some things you gotta live by, but it doesn't feel like that. It's been one of the best things in my life."

The "Logan" star described his wife as the "most optimistic person" he has ever met. He added, "Deb is the lightest, most optimistic person I've ever met in my life. Like, if you ever want to play who's the happiest person in the room? Deb wins."
