It’s no secret that the handsome Aussie has been smitten with his blonde wife since day dot, and now, 20 years on from the day they tied the knot, Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness have proudly celebrated their huge milestone.
The 47-year-old actor took to social media to share a sweet throwback picture of him and his wife on their wedding day in 1996.
A blast from the past! Hugh and Deb pictured on their wedding day in 1996.
He shared the pic to over 10 million folllowers along with the touching caption: “20 years ago on this day...”
Hugh has never shied away when it comes to gushing about his one and only.
In a recent interview with Sunrise, the X-Men star revealed that one of his mantras is “Happy wife, Happy life!”
And earlier this year, the father-of-two opened up to Ellen DeGeneres, confessing his wife is "the greatest thing that ever happened" to him.
"It gets better and better, I can honestly say that," he said during an appearance on the Ellen Show in February. "She's the greatest thing that ever happened to me."
"I'm kind of really grateful that I met [her] before anything kind of happened," he told the talk-show host.
"Because everything that's ever happened in my career - on screen, off screen - we've always done it together."

Hugh and Deb first met in 1995 on the set of the Australian TV series Correlli- which happened to be his first big role.
The then-26-year-old admitted to being immediately smitten with his co-star, who was 13 years his senior, but refrained from confessing his feelings as the whole cast had a crush on her.
"She was the star and I had this major crush on her," he told Ellen. "Everyone did. The whole crew had a crush on her and I was so embarrassed by that, I didn't talk to her for about a week."
After a few drinks, the burly actor finally admitted to his feelings, and funnily enough she reciprocated. The rest, as they say, is history!

The couple tied the knot on April 11th, 1996 in Melbourne.
They share two adopted children together, Oscar Maximillian, 15, and daughter Ava Eliot, 10.
To celebrate 20 wonderful years together, the couple have jetted off to St Barts in the Caribbean to celebrate the milestone.
Congratulations, Hugh and Deborra!
