Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness celebrate a milestone on Sunday. After 25 years of marriage, the couple celebrated their silver wedding anniversary.
On the occasion, 52-year-old Jackman gushed about the 65-year-old Furness in posts on Twitter and Instagram and included a number of throwback photos from her wedding day.
“Being married to you, Deb is as natural as breathing,” he wrote in the Instagram headline. “Almost from the moment we met … I knew our destiny was to be together. In our 25 years our love has only grown deeper. The fun, excitement, and adventure more exhilarating; learning even bigger. “
“I am forever grateful to share our love, life, and family with one another. We are just getting started. Deb, I love you with all my heart! “

For Valentine’s Day, the actor shared another photo from his 1996 wedding anniversary on Instagram, where he and Furness were held on their guests’ shoulders.
“Deb. You are and always will be the great love of my life. I love you to the moon and back, “he wrote.
Jackman and Furness met on the set of the Australian television series “Corelli” in 1995 and proposed four months later. The two tied the knot in 1996. The couple has two adopted children, Oscar Maximilian (20) and Ava Eliot (15).
The actor revealed to Willie Geist von TODAY during an interview in November 2018 that he immediately knew Furness would be his wife.
“I knew two weeks after meeting Deb that we would be together for the rest of our lives,” he explained.
“What do you want from your life partner in the end?” He added, “You want to be fully seen and you want to be able to see them for exactly who they really are. And Deb and I had that from the start.”
A few months before this admission, the Wolverine star shared his secret of longevity in his marriage to TODAY, stating, “You have to find the right person. It’s powerful but simple. “

“When you date you literally put on the best version of you,” he added. My best lines, I put on my best clothes. How do you get from this person to yourself? The training pants version of you. “
Not only did Jackman stay true to himself and find the right person, but he also stated that he and his wife had established some ground rules to keep their relationship going.
“Deb was in the store before me and made some rules,” he explained. “We won’t be more than two weeks apart, and we won’t work at the same time if we don’t have to financially. One of us is always there to support the other. And that’s what we said – well, the next month is 22 years. “
