Hugh Jackman said his father died on Australia’s Father’s Day

He died on Australia’s Dad’s Day, Jackman stated, informing fans on Instagram: “Whilst there is deep sadness, I am filled with such gratitude and love.”

“My Dad was, in a word, extraordinary. He devoted his life to his family, his work and his faith. I pray he is now at peace with God,” he included.

Christopher John Jackman was an English-born accounting professional who emigrated to Australia prior to Hugh was born.

He raised the future star and his 4 brother or sisters alone after splitting from his other half when Hugh was 8 years of ages, Jackman informed The Telegraph in 2011.
The star commemorated his daddy throughout his profession, explaining him as his “rock” in an interview with CBS News’ “60 Minutes” display in 2012.

And in an Instagram post in 2015, he composed: “My Father taught me to always keep my promises … Even if it turns out that there’s a better option or something that will benefit me more. Be true to your word.”
