They first met on the set of the Australian TV show Correlli in 1995. Just two weeks after their meeting, the actor realized that they were going to be together for the rest of their lives. Since then, they nurtured their relationship with everlasting love.

During that time, Huge had just begun in the industry and was struggling to make his career but Deborra was a well-known star. Despite their 13-year age gap, it did not affect their relationship.

After dating for almost a year, the couple officially became husband and wife on 11 April 1996. Their ceremony took place with their loved ones at St. John's in Toorak, Victoria. Sadly, Deborra had suffered from two miscarriages so they adopted two children Oscar and Ava.

Ava does not have any biological siblings but she has an older adopted brother Oscar Maximilian Jackman. Just like her, Hugh and his wife, Deborra adopted Oscar after experiencing multiple miscarriages. He is 5 years older than Ava.

But before he was adopted by them, Oscar's biological mother Amber Lanham never introduced him to her own family. She did not disclose his biological father before she died in 2005 by suicide. She was 28 at the time of her death.
