The Wolverine star was home in New York and had some fun with his daughter, Ava, on a gorgeous autumn day.
Fresh off his latest film shoot, Hugh Jackman‘s biggest role these days is playing dad to his two kids, Oscar, 10, and Ava, 5. Last Thursday (Oct. 14), it was Ava’s turn to get Daddy’s full attention, as the star of X-Men Origins: Wolverine picked his daughter up from school in New Yo0rk’s West Village and, in the process (and much to little Ava’s horror!), stole a nibble from her cookie!
Hugh, who just turned 42, recently finished filming the action movie Real Steel, which will be released next year, and while he’s waiting for the director to his next Wolverine movie to be announced, he’s laying low in the Big Apple.
Both children Hugh has with wife Deborra-Lee Furness, 55, are adopted. After trying and failing to have kids of their own, “the moment Oscar arrived, it just felt like he was always meant to come that way,” Hugh has said. “I forget he’s adopted; he’s just my son.”
Hugh and Deborra-Lee were present at Oscar’s birth in 2000, and adopted Ava as an infant in 2005. With two kids in the house, things can get a bit hectic, but, according to Hugh, “the more there’s chaos, mess, noise, the more I start to feel, ‘Ah, this is how it’s meant to be!’”
