Now, this little cute girl is all grown up and set to make her parents proud and happy.

The most important part is that the family is having a great time together and Jackman couple doesn’t feel or think that their children are adopted.

Why did Hugh and Deborra adopt kids, Ava and Oscar?

In an interview with Parade in 2015, the Australian actor had said that he always wanted children. He himself grew in a family with five children where three were biological and two were adopted.

The duo even thought to have both biological children and adopted ones in their family. But, since they couldn’t have biological kids, that couldn’t happen.

Hugh and Furness adopted Oscar because Furness suffered from miscarriage for two times. It was hard for them to survive without children.  The couple tried to have a baby; she even underwent IVF (a medical procedure where an egg is fertilized on test tube by sperm).

But this wasn’t productive. So the duo decided to adopt Oscar and then a daughter who is now known as Hugh Jackman’s daughter Ava.

Importantly, Hugh feels these two kids helped him and wife to overcome the pain of not having biological children. They are his children. That’s what matters to him.

Ethnicities of Ava and her brother Oscar

Hugh Jackman’s daughter Ava is half-Mexican, half-German. And son Oscar is African-American, Caucasian, Hawaiian, Cherokee. He’s a bit of everything. According to People, Jackman has stated that they deliberately requested a bi-racial child as these children are turned away.

Oscar and Ava’s mother Deborra is also an Adopt change ambassador. And both the couple have been appealing to the families to adopt homeless, especially bi-racial children locally in Australia. She says,

If any Australian see a two-year-old child sitting by himself/herself on a corner of the street, will they just keep walking by? No. These children need grown ups to care them. I need every Australian to be aware that these children needs permanent family.

Hugh Jackman Concern for his kids

Yes, along with wife Deborra, Hugh Jackman is very concerned about his children’s future. With Parade, Hugh Jackman shared that what worries most to him is his kids, since his daughter and son are growing up with great privileges along with challenges.

He worries that the fame and paparazzi his children are getting might spoil them. So, as a great dad, he always teaches them about respect and gratitude.  He says to his daughter Ava and son Oscar,

“I’m going to be tougher on you than I would be if I wasn’t famous, because people are actually going to be less tough on you in life.”

As Ava and Oscar are part of Celebrity family, Hugh doesn’t want his children to feel entitled. He teaches his children to be better behaved, respectful and down to earth.

The Australian actor also turned to the on-screen hero to real-life hero as he is known to rescue his son Oscar from the rip. 17 years old, Oscar was tangled in the strong current of waves in Sydney’s Bondi beach. Then the superhero, Jackman rescued him along with a swimmer.
