Hugh Jackman and his wife, Deborah Lee Furness, adopted children after being unable to conceive their biological child. Additionally, Deborah also experienced multiple miscarriages.

Failure to conceive led to the most painful period of their life. The marvel superhero Hugh Jackman talked to a news portal about his struggle to become a father. He said, “It was painful.”

Furthermore, he added: “It’s not easy. You put a lot of time and effort into it, so it’s emotional. I think any parent can relate – trying to have children is wonderful, and when you feel as though that’s not going to happen, there’s a certain anxiety that goes with it.”

Despite the massive tragedy of not being able to have their biological children, the couple happily moved on. He added:

“From the moment we started the adoption process, all the anxiety went away. I don’t think of my children as adopted – they’re our children. Deb and I are believers; I suppose you could call it destiny. We feel things happened the way they are meant to. Biologically wasn’t the way we were meant to have children. Now, as we go through life together, there are challenges, but everyone’s in the right place with the right people. It sounds airy-fairy, but it’s something we feel very deeply.”

Hugh Jackman and Deborah Lee never tasted parenthood’s happiness until they adopted their eldest child Oscar Maximilian.
