Hugh Jackman has shared a sweet tribute to his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, on the pair’s 25th wedding anniversary.

The 52-year-old Australian actor took to his Twitter account to gush over actress and producer Deborra.

“Being married to you Deb is as natural as breathing. From nearly the moment we met ... I knew our destiny was to be together. In our 25 years - our love has only grown deeper. I love with my whole heart,” he wrote.

“I remember I was sitting in his kitchen and he was cooking for a dinner party and I said, ‘You haven’t been coming into my trailer lately, we always used to hang out’, and he goes ‘Yeah yeah I know, I haven’t, I’ve got a crush on you, then I said ‘I’ve got a crush on you too’ and that was it, we admitted it, and I don’t think we ever spent a day apart,”Deb said in September last year when she appeared on Anh’s Brush With Fame.

"We just had this amazing connection, and I feel blessed that I experienced, that I feel like I met my soulmate, whatever that is."

The couple tied the knot in 1996 in Toorak, Victoria, and Hugh previously revealed they always put their family first.

“When Deb and I got married, we made a pact that we would look at each other at every turning point in our lives and would ask ourselves if this is good or bad for our family,” the 49-year-old told Who.

Deborra-Lee and Hugh Jackman are the proud parents to Oscar, 20, and Ava,15, whom they adopted after a heartbreaking fertility journey.

“We were always going to adopt, and we were hopefully going to have biological children. I always just assumed that we would biologically have children … but when that didn’t happen,” Deb said on Anh’s Brush With Fame.

“I had many miscarriages. It’s a loss, it’s hard. I always knew I was going to be a mother, I was raised by an incredible mother. It was instilled in me that I am very mothering I like to nurture, so at the time, it hurt, it was painful … and then, you move on.”
