Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-lee Furness have taken their first step to reach their Australian dream.

An unnamed source told Woman’s Day that the couple just sold their property in New York in preparation for their upcoming move to Australia. However, the process of moving and selling, and shipping some of their things have taken a toll not only on them but also on their children.

“Almost everything that didn’t go to the smaller apartment is being shipped to OZ. They’re serious about moving Down Under one day and this was the perfect opportunity to start sending things back. Having a smaller space has freed up money to invest in their eventual base in Australia as well, so they’re excited about taking steps towards their Aussie dream,” the source said.

The source also claimed that the move could cause problems with their children, who have been living and studying in the United States for years.

“Their friends, their studies, hobbies, everything they know and love is based in New York. Seeing boxes marked for Australia will have made it much more real for them that Chelsea is nothing more than a stepping stone to Oz,” the source said.

According to the source, the last thing that Jackman and Furness want is for their kids to feel like they have to choose between their friends and their parents.

“It’s true this move is one step closer to Oz but they’re a family and not even Bondi Beach could lure them away from Ava and Oscar’s lives. Not when things are just getting fun,” the source said.

However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt. There’s no indication that Jackman and Furness are permanently relocating to Australia. And even if they are, their children do not have to be affected by the move.

After all, the couple’s kids can stay in the United States if this is what they want. And they can also finish their studies there.

So, it’s unclear why the tabloid is making a big deal about Jackman and Furness selling their home in New York and shipping their stuff overseas.

Most celebrities do this when they score better properties and homes and there’s really nothing unusual about it.

Additionally, Jackman and Furness can also travel back and forth between the United States and Australia anytime they want.
