Adoption helped overcome miscarriages pain, says Jackman

Los Angeles: Actor Hugh Jackman says adopting his first child Oscar with wife Deborra-Lee Furness helped them cope with the pain of miscarriages.

The 44-year-old actor talked about his wife`s miscarriages and adoption plan on Katie Couric`s talk show "Katie".

"Until you go through it, you understand it`s not talked about a lot. By the way, to be clear, Deb and I always wanted to adopt. So that was always in our plan. We didn`t know where in the process that would happen but biologically, obviously we tried, and it was not happening for us, and it is a difficult time," quoted Jackman as saying.

"We did IVF and Deb had a couple of miscarriages. I`ll never forget it, the miscarriage thing... It happens to one in three pregnancies. But it`s very rarely talked about. It`s almost secretive, so I hope Deb doesn`t mind me bringing it up now," he added.

Jackman and his wife Furness have two children - Oscar, 12 and seven-year-old Ava.
