Many readers have previously wondered about the ethnicity of Hugh Jackman’s children, Oscar, 7, and Ava Eliot, 22 months. Hugh is in Australia working on his new movie, Australia, and spoke to New Idea about work and family. He addresses the issue of adoption and the ethnicities of his two children with Deborra-Lee Furness.
Oscar is a bit of everything – African-American, Caucasian, Hawaiian and Cherokee. We specifically requested a bi-racial child because there was more of a need. People will wait 18 months to adopt a little blonde girl; meanwhile, bi-racial children are turned away. The same was true for Ava, she’s half Mexican, half German.
