Sad news for the Jackman family

Actor Hugh Jackman, 37, and his wife Deborra-Lee, 45, are dealing with tragic news this week. The biological mother of their five year old son Oscar, whom they adopted as an infant, has committed suicide. Amber, the 28 year old mother, was apparently involved in drugs and found herself homeless recently. She also had lost custody of her other children, and was upset over being unable to see them and Oscar, reported her father Tom Lanhem.

Hugh and Deborra-Lee, who also adopted a daughter, Ava, now 7 months, are weighing the decision to tell Oscar of his mother’s passing now, or wait until he is older and better able to understand.
