Hugh Jackman's Adoption Decision A 'No Brainer'
by Staff

Hugh Jackman's decision to adopt children of mixed race with his actress wife Deborra-Lee Furness was a "no brainer" - after he discovered fewer families were willing to take care of multi-racial babies.

The Australian couple struggled for years to conceive following their 1996 nuptials, before adopting Oscar Maximilian, eight, and Ava Eliot, three.

And Jackman admits bosses at an adoption agency made the challenging decision easier when they told the pair which tots might struggle to find a good home.

He says, "Deb and I tried biologically to have children. When we went to talk to some (agency representatives) about adoption, he (sic) said to me, 'We turn away children each month because they are mixed race and they can't find homes for them.' It was a no brainer." (c) WENN
