Hugh Jackman has opened up on his wife’s infertility problems. Now, the couple are happy with two adopted children, but before they decided to adopt Hugh’s wife Deb underwent IVF treatments which lead to a few miscarriages that were extremely hard to deal with and left the couple grieving. Hugh says that miscarriages are very common but often kept secret so he feels it’s beneficial to speak about the topic and to raise awareness:

“Biologically obviously we tried and it was not happening for us and it is a difficult time. We did Ivf and Deb had a couple of miscarriages. I’ll never forget it, the miscarriage thing – it happens to one in three pregnancies, but it’s very, very rarely talked about. It’s almost secretive, so I hope Deb doesn’t mind me bringing it up now… It’s a good thing to talk about it. It’s more common, and it is tough. There’s a grieving that you have to go through.”

Although things didn’t work out biologically for the couple, the pain was eased when they finally got to meet their adopted son Oscar for the first time:

“You can’t prepare for that moment. Nothing can prepare you. You can’t even explain how incredible it is and that avalanche of emotion that comes and how it opens up your heart, how it frustrates you, how it angers you, how everything is just all the sudden (sic) how alive you are as a parent.”
