Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness Jackman are separating after almost 30 years of marriage. People was first to report the news.
The couple shared a statement with the publication, writing: “We have been blessed to share almost 3 decades together as husband and wife in a wonderful, loving marriage. Our journey now is shifting and we have decided to separate to pursue our individual growth.”
They continued: “Our family has been and always will be our highest priority. We undertake this next chapter with gratitude, love, and kindness. We greatly appreciate your understanding in respecting our privacy as our family navigates this transition in all of our lives.”

Representatives for the Jackmans didn’t immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.
The couple met in 1995 on the set of an Australian TV show, and tied the knot in April the next year. Their last red-carpet appearance together was at the Met Gala in New York in May.
After experiencing difficulty having children, the pair decided to adopt. They share 23-year-old Oscar, and 18-year-old Ava.
