“Hugh and I were always going to adopt,” Deborra, who has kids Oscar and Ava with her handsome husband, tells Page Six Magazine. “We were going to have one [child], adopt another. When we didn’t have one, we adopted two. I can’t bear to think of a child not being cared for. I tell my own children it was their destiny to come to us.”
In addition to adoption, Deborra opens up about what it’s like being married to one of the sexiest men alive (Hugh received the People magazine honor in 2008).
“I’ve been almost pummeled as people try to get to him,” she reveals. “Literally, they will push you out of the way.”
She says that Hugh’s Hollywood success also opens them up to criticism, be it over their 13-year age difference or her curvaceous figure.
“The age thing! Truth be known, Hugh is much more mature than me, so we balance each other out,” she insists, dismissing the gap. “And heaven forbid I have a human experience and carry a little weight.”
Deb is also quick to shrug off the gossip that her husband is gay, saying, “The line I heard was, ‘Wolverine? Who would have thought?’ Hugh and I don’t pay much heed. It’s kind of tragic that these people have nothing better to do than gossip about people they don’t know.”
Having recently celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary, the couple have one of Hollywood’s longest marriages.
