Hugh Jackman gets competitive with wife Deborra-Lee Furness at home in New York

He recently returned to the US after his trip to Australia was cut short by Sydney’s Covid outbreak.

And on Friday, Hugh Jackman showed off his competitive side with wife Deborra-Lee Furness at their New York home, in a short video shared to his Instagram.

The Sydney-born actor, 52, hid behind a pole in their West Village penthouse after winning a game of Backgammon against a disappointed Deborra-Lee, 65.

‘Babe, I just got lucky. I don’t know how I won that one,’ the Greatest Showman star said, before hilariously standing up and hiding behind a pole in their luxury abode.

Hugh captioned the Instagram post, ‘Competitive much?!’ alongside the hashtag ‘I love you Deb’.

The post comes nearly two weeks after Hugh returned to the United States after a short stint in his home country.

Hugh enjoyed just a week and a half of freedom in Sydney following the mandatory two weeks of hotel quarantine. 

He is believed to have cut short his visit to his home city after an outbreak of the highly infectious Delta strain of Covid led to another lockdown.

Hugh moved to New York with Deborra-Lee and their children in 2008, and they reside in the trendy West Village.

Last year, Hugh revealed he was homesick for Australia after a lengthy lockdown in New York due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Deborra-Lee and the couple’s children had initially been in Melbourne when COVID-19 was declared a pandemic in March 2019.

But they returned to the U.S. just four days later in order to keep the family together.
