Hollywood Fertility Struggle: Hugh Jackman
Hugh Jackman has made headlines this week for the debut of his film Australia, but today Jackman is in the news discussing his fertility plight. He and his wife Deborah-Lee Furness struggling to conceive for years, even during trial periods of using In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
. Jackman told US Magazine in this weeks issue,
"I hope Deb doesn't mind me saying so, but that was a tough, tough time. Physically, you go through a lot with IVF. I was giving Deb injections every day, and hormonally she was all over the place."
For years the dashing duo and his wife tried to conceive naturally, but the emotional turmoil was too much to handle. After two miscarriages and an endless struggle, they opted to adopt a child. With hopes of always having a large family, Jackman and Deborah have two adopted children Oscar and Ava. Much like Cindy Margolis and Jamie Oliver and his wife, Jackman has openly discussed infertility and the options available for couples. Photolink
