In wonderful news today, Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness are celebrating 20 years together – and Hugh is still madly in love with her!

The 47-year-old appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and couldn’t stop gushing over his wife.

“She’s the greatest thing that ever happened to me and it just gets better and better and I’m really grateful I met her before anything really happened,” he said.

“Everything that’s happened in my career and on screen, off screen- we’ve always done it together.”

The couple met on the set of Correlli, where Hugh admits he fell for her.

“I had a major crush on her, everyone did. The whole crew had a crush on her and I was so embarrassed I didn’t talk to her for a week.”

“About a week later, I go, ‘this is silly’ and invited her to a dinner party with about 20 other people.”


The couple, who have two children, will celebrate their wedding anniversary in April.

Congratulations, Hugh and Deborra!
