Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness have been happily married for 23 years.

And on Wednesday, the smitten pair looked all loved up as they cosied up for a stunning Christmas selfie. In the gorgeous picture, the 51-year-old, and his wife, 64, smiled widely as they embraced one another with a beautiful Christmas tree in the background.

The Greatest Showman actor captioned the snap: “Happy holidays from our family to yours!”

Many fans were quick to comment, with one writing: “Cheers and happy holidays to you and your family!”

Another added, “This is so sweet. Happy holidays,” while a third wrote: “Look at you two… so beautiful. Happy holidays.”

The actors met on the set of the Australian drama Corelli in 1995, and have two children together, Oscar, 18, and Ava, 12. Hugh is not shy about expressing his love and devotion for his wife, and by the looks of things, these two are going stronger than ever.

Last year, while accepting an award at the Santa Barbara Film Festival, Hugh teared up when talking about his wife of 23 years, saying she taught him that life is “not defined” by highlight reels.

“Life actually happens in between that. Life happens when the camera is not going,” he said at the time.

“You believed in me when I couldn’t. You’ve loved me with a passion and a depth that I didn’t even know existed — and I don’t think I felt that I deserved. You have pushed and encouraged me when I was scared to venture out. You have smiled me into smiling. You have sung me into singing. You have loved me into loving and like everything I do in my life, I share this with you. I love you.”

And in 2017, he revealed on UK talk show Lorraine that the secret to their marriage success was the fact they shared everything and never spent more than two weeks apart.

“We always said we’d never spend more than two weeks apart. Sometimes life and work does get crazy,” he said at the time. “But we met on my first job when she was already a big star, I was a nobody. So we have shared everything, all the ups and downs, and always will.”
