Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Hugh Jackman hosts an Aussie-centric playdate at the Hudson River Park in downtown Manhattan on Sunday, alongside son Oscar Maximillian, 9. Not pictured but also present were pals Dashiell John, 8, Roman Robert, 5 ½, and Ignatius ‘Iggy’ Martin, 20 months, sons of actress Cate Blanchett.

A major winter storm walloped the New York City area over the weekend, leaving up to a foot of snow in its wake.

Both native Australians, Hugh, 41, and Cate, 40, have been in town for theater engagements: Hugh recently finished A Steady Rain at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, while Cate yesterday wrapped A Streetcar Named Desire at the Harvey Theater in Brooklyn.

In addition to Oscar, Hugh is dad to 4-year-old Ava Eliot with wife Deborra-Lee Furness. Cate’s three children are hers with husband Andrew Upton.
