Happy Birthday, Ava Jackman!

Happy Birthday, Ava Jackman!

X-Men star Hugh Jackman and his actress wife Deborra-Lee Furness throw a colorful 3rd birthday party for their daughter, Ava, in Sydney, Australia on Saturday morning. (Big brother Oscar was also there!)

The party which was decorated with pink balloons, a big silver #3 balloon and a soldier statue. Looks like Ava really enjoyed her Dora the Explorer helium balloon!

Sarah Murdoch, wife of Lachlan Murdoch (elder son of media mogul, Rupert Murdoch), turned up for the party with her two sons, Kalan and Aidan.

P.S. IMDB and Wikipedia list Ava‘s birthday as July 10, 2005, so this is a really late birthday celebration!

10+ pictures inside of Ava Jackman‘s birthday bash…

    Ava’s birthday *is* July 10 – I think the family may have been on vacation at that time so this may have been the first open date.

    sorry post number 10 Hugh jackman as manly as he looks is known in Hollywood and in the theatre community to be a closeted gay man…he did Boy from Oz and even the people from the show confirmed that…
    sorry to dissapoint you…

  • flower

    serena the number 10 is right hugh is a real man and the only reason why people say he is gay is because he did a great job in the boy from oz nothing more..

  • victoria

    Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ava is a cutie pie……

  • ra

    well, serena, the fact is that NO ONE who could know the truth has ever “confirmed” that Hugh is gay. Nobody in the Broadway show, nobody on any of his movie sets. In fact, many people who know him well and have worked with him have commented on the wonderful marriage he has with Deborra-lee. You, Serena, are merely repeating gossip.
    sorry to disappoint you….

    Maybe they were waiting for a nice, sunny day to have an outdoor party for Ava. Besides, a 3 year old has no idea when her “real” birthday is and to her a party is a party whenever it’s held. Looks like she had a blast, especailly with Dora.

    I really hate when people speculate about anyone’s sexuality. So ridiculous. Hugh did an amazing job in “Oz” which means to me he’s a great actor.

    Love this family! :)

    @ emma lee
    Who do you think you are?
    Hugh has a wonderful and beautiful wife and his son Oscar has been adopted….that is why he is “black”…keep your racism and dumb opinion to yourself!

  • Jack T

    His wife is fugly.
    he could’ve done better, much much better than that, something is wrong here.
    Anyone suggestion?/

  • tracy

    hugh’s adopted son is sooo cute and emma lee i find what u say was a little racist.

  • the real emma lee

    Someone used my screen name and wrote that horrible comment on #22 post. I can’t tell you how upset that makes me. I would never write or say anything negative about Hugh, Deb or their adorable children and I would never say anything as crude as that name stealer said. I wish we were able to use only one name on this site and everyone would be made accountable for their words.

    The fake emma lee is quite vicious and should use her/his own name and not hide behind a regular poster and fan of the Jackmans!

  • Oohy

    Re: the negative comments about Hugh’s wife….I think we could end the negativism if people had to pass an IQ test before posting….anyone with an IQ lower than a slug shouldn’t be posting.

    The Jackmans are the rare Hollywood family who actually believe in things like love and family and kindness.

    Dummies, keep your thoughts to yourselves.

    I am always concerned when seeing celebrate’s children on photo pages that others can discriminate against and be so hateful.
    Jared, my female friend turned me onto your site; as we are both fans of the Jackmans. Not just for their talent, but for all the charitable giving to children everywhere and to everyone around them.
    Respectfully, I do not know if the Jackmans allow you to picture them and their children so freely – I wish them all happiness, great health and prosperity always! Jared, please find a way to screen your bloggers to prevent such raciest and terrible words from ruining your blog. And for Emma lee (the real Emma), may you find comfort in knowing that many of us know that there are terrible people out there that would like nothing more than to harm others be it in words… Don’t let that B@St@rd get you down.
