Hugh Jackman and Ava, 8, were seen walking from school with some of her friends in New York City on Tuesday (October 29). The actor made funny faces along the way. Later that night the Prisoners actor and wife Deborra-Lee Furness honored her mother Fay Duncan at the annual Angel Ball benefit. Duncan is the president of the Fight Cancer Foundation in Australia.
Hugh tweeted a photo and wrote: “Honored for her hard work … the best mother-in law, Fay Duncan. #mama #AngelBall #fightcancerfoundation #thedebs.”
At the event Hugh said he had to get Duncan’s blessing before proposing to Deborra-Lee. He shared that she told him that supporting the fight against cancer was one of the requirements to get that blessing.
He joked, “If you’re expecting an actor to start sucking up to his mother-in-law, you’re absolutely right.”
