Hugh Jackman and Family Are Stars at Scootering! (Photos)Shana Aborn
Almost nothing can slow down New Yorkers. Blizzards, hurricanes, heat waves, transit strikes, naked cowboys in Times Square – we take it all in stride and keep right on going to whatever important business lies ahead.
So even though this week has brought some frigid temps and brisk winds to our fair city, we don’t hide indoors. We don’t even put the scooters away for the winter. We just follow the lead of Hugh Jackman, his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness and their 6-year-old daughter, Ava. Throw on a couple of layers, pull on the hats and hoods, slip the sweater on the dog and away we go.
Scootering must be Ava’s preferred mode of travel. She’s been photographed year-round pushing herself along on her favorite pink three-wheeler, usually accompanied by her dad and their French bulldog, Peaches.
Hugh may be an Aussie by birth, but his never-slow-down pace says Manhattan all the way.
Check out these pictures from their morning ride!
Snack on the run 1 of 6New Yorkers are famous for alfresco dining. Ava munches on a treat - looks like a granola bar - while dad Hugh stays hydrated.
Bundled up – almost 2 of 6While everyone in the Jackman family dressed in sensible cold-weather coats, Ava's leggings and Deborra-Lee's bare hands might make them a mite chilly.
Retro footwear 3 of 6Ava's old-style saddle shoes make a nice contrast to her more modern leggings and puffy coat.
Where’d our daughter go? 4 of 6The cool thing about scooters is that you can zip behind your parents - or out in front of them.
Trying a daring move 5 of 6Proving she has her dad's agility, Ava reaches out to pet Peaches without slowing down her ride.
Success! 6 of 6Peaches looks like she's used to this routine by now.
