While in New York City with the family on Sunday, Hugh Jackman paid a visit to Hudson River Park with daughter Ava Eliot, 3 ½. The dad and daughter posed for photographers before playing near the river’s edge.

Later in the day, Hugh and son Oscar Maximillian, 8 ½, took in a New York Knicks vs. Denver Nuggets game at Madison Square Garden. (The Nuggets won, 117-110!)

Oscar and Ava are Hugh’s children with wife Deborra-Lee Furness. Hugh, PEOPLE’s “Sexiest Man Alive,” will host the Academy Awards on February 22nd.

Oscar’s expression of pure, frenetic joy is awesome.They look like a happy family,I wonder if they’ll adopt another little one or stay with their pair.

Hugh Jackman is hilarious, whenever I see an interview with him, it always seems like he makes an effort to make every conversation special, no matter how many he has to do. And I love those kids, they’re gorgoues. Ava reminds me of Suri Cruise for some reason.

Ha, Oscar looks so happy over whatever transpired at game the time of that photo being taken. I’m just wondering if he was happy over Denver winning or if he was rooting the Knicks on. I can’t tell…;) And Ava is such a cutie.

FC, he was for Denver, that are photos of him in a huge Denver jersey.

I like how Oscar if over the top happy and the people behind them look bored out of their minds!

How could you not just love Hugh ? He is incredibly talented, what can’t he do. He sing’s, dances and acts yet is still down to earth. Plus just look at him.

I still can’t get the B-uck story out of my head and every time I watch an interview with him that’s all I can think of.
