Real Steel actor Hugh Jackman was spotted scooting around the streets of New York City with his 6-year-old sweetheart Ava on Thursday (January 19). The family pooch Peaches seemed to enjoy her morning stroll too!

The Austalian actor is among a number of other celebrities to have pledged their support to marriage equality proposals in their native country. The actor reportedly signed his name to an equality declaration that reads:
“Marriage should be about love and respect, not discrimination. Australia is at its best when we value equality over prejudice and fear. That’s why we support marriage equality for same-sex couples. Marriage equality will help remove discrimination against same-sex couples and their children. It will also benefit marriage by allowing it to embrace more loving committed couples who uphold its values. It’s time for Australia to join the other nations that have benefitted from this important reform.”
Australian Marriage Equality National Convener Alex Greenwich comments, “Hugh, David, and Lizzie are all happily married straight supporters of equality. They know how important marriage is to a couple and their families, and like most Australians they don’t feel same-sex couples should be denied the meaning and benefits of marriage”.
Hugh has definitely denied gay rumors in the past. In response to such claims, Hugh’s wife Deborra-Lee Furness states,
