The actor, who currently stars on Broadway in ‘The Music Man,’ posted a selfie on Instagram of the two cuddling on a beach to celebrate their 26th anniversary on Monday.

He wrote in the caption, “Today I celebrate 26 years of marriage to my amazing wife. Every day is filled with laughter, joy and backgammon!!!! Deb you light up my life. Love you with all my heart !

How sweet is it? As well, backgammon!

For the 25th milestone last year, Jackman, 53, blew everyone away with throwback photos shared on Instagram from their wedding, writing that being with Furness, 66, was as “natural as breathing”.

The couple met on the set of the Australian television series “Corelli” in 1995; he asked her to marry him four months later. They married in 1996 and have two adopted children: Oscar Maximilian, 21, and Ava Eliot, 16.

In 2021, Jackman told TODAY’s Hoda Kotb, “Deb is the most light-hearted, optimistic person I’ve ever met in my life. If you ever want to play the game, ‘Who’s the happiest person in the room ?’ Deb wins.”

He added that as soon as she wakes up in the morning, she says, “‘What are we doing today? Ah, this is going to be so great.’ She makes the most of everything.
