  • Hugh Jackman.

  • Hugh Jackman's almost 30 year love story comes to an end.

  • When I ask my wife to marry me, you're nervous.

  • You know, it's the right thing, but you have to take that leap of faith.

  • The actor and Deborra-Lee Furness, revealing their decision to divorce on Friday,

  • telling People Magazine, "We have been blessed to share almost three decades together as husband and wife in a wonderful, loving marriage.

  • Our journey now is and we have decided to separate to pursue our individual growth."

  • The thing I always try to maintain with it, which is what my dad did with me was,

  • it doesn't matter what you do, who you are; love what you do and always be respectful of people around you

  • While they noted it's the sole statement either of them will make, ET has reached out for comment.

  • That's Deborra-Lee on Tuesday in New York City without her wedding ring.

  • And at this year's Met Gala, neither sported rings.

  • Same goes for the last time they were spotted together in July at Wimbledon.

  • Well, if you're anything like me, you wake up asking, "How do we get here?"

  • Back in their statement, the two say they're undertaking this next chapter with gratitude, love and kindness.

  • Adding that "Family has been and always will be our highest priority."

  • They share two kids, a 23-year-old son Oscar and (an) 18-year-old daughter Ava.

  • For me, life gets better and better.

  • You know, I was a very, very happy single man when I met my wife and the moment I met her, it was like this is 10 times better than this and it's just continued to be like that.

  • And for the couple calling it quits wasn't a decision to be taken lightly.

  • As the romance predates Hugh's A-list stardom and his breakthrough Marvel role.

  • There's a war coming. You sure you're on the right side?

  • This is my wife, Deborra-Lee.

  • It is one of the nights of my life.

  • Yet before Wolverine and The Greatest Showman, the two met in 1995 starring on a TV series in their native Australia, tying the knot a year later.

  • And there she was, and my heart kind of skipped a beat because she was stunning and I was a little intimidated because she was a big star.

  • She was just cool.

  • And from that moment, we were our best buds.

  • Fast forward to 2023, Hugh shared this sweet tribute for their 27th anniversary.

  • "Together we have created a beautiful family and life. I love you with all my heart."

Hugh Jackman.
