They have two children: Oscar Maximilian Jackman, 20, and Ava Eliot Jackman, 15.

In 2020, Hugh told People that the secret to their happy marriage was ‘making time for each other and ‘always learning’ from each other.

'So I came back and literally everything the psychic said came true.  I got this show Corelli and [Hugh] is my co-star.  I didn't know him but we had an amazing relationship... And the rest is history,' he said

She says they consciously ‘reset’ their marriage over time, meaning they don’t grow apart like many old couples do.

“We’re always learning and people change, so you have to, even though we’ve been together for 25 years, you always have to rearrange,” he said.

‘I’m always shaken at how cute he is and how amazing he is and how smart he is. The longer it goes the better.’
