Being married to one of People’s Sexiest Man Alive, Hugh Jackman, can be quite daunting. But for Deborra-Lee Furnee, she seems to have the job under control. This celebrity mom recently opened up to Page Six Magazine on raising a family in the public eye and how they came to the decision of adoption.

“Hugh and I were always going to adopt,” Deborra, mom to Oscar and Ava, says. “We were going to have one [child], adopt another. When we didn’t have one, we adopted two. I can’t bear to think of a child not being cared for. I tell my own children it was their destiny to come to us.”

And while Furness has the job of being married to Jackman under control, sometimes it can get pretty crazy! “I’ve been almost pummeled as people try to get to him,” she reveals. “Literally, they will push you out of the way.”

Deborra isn’t too worried about her 13-year age difference from Hugh as well as her curvy body. “The age thing! Truth be known, Hugh is much more mature than me, so we balance each other out,” she insists, not worrying about the gap. “And heaven forbid I have a human experience and carry a little weight.”
