Hugh Jackman planning another adoption?

Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness are planning to adopt a third child, it has been claimed

Hugh Jackman is planning to adopt another child.

The Australian actor, who already has two adopted kids with wife Deborra-Lee Furness, is believed to be keen to expand his brood further.

A source told the National Enquirer magazine: "Hugh is a big believer in adoption - not just personally, but from a world view of extending help to parentless children.

"They are adopting another child now, and plan to welcome a fourth into their family down the road. It has become their mission."

Hugh, who has been married to Deborra-Lee for 13 years, recently revealed he felt strongly about opening his home to multi-racial children Oscar, eight, and Ava, three.

He said: "Mixed-race babies have such a hard time being adopted that Deb and I checked off that box specifically when we were filling out our forms.

"Our lawyer brought the form back to us and said, 'This is not the time to be politically correct. Are you sure this is what you want?' We were definite about it. Adoption is about taking a baby into your home and your heart. It's the best thing we've ever done."
