Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness celebrated their 21st wedding anniversary on Tuesday (Apr. 11) and the Logan star commemorated the special occasion by posting a sweet photo on Instagram. In the post, Hugh thanked “the love of [his] life” for “21 glorious years,” and declared his undying love for her. “I love you with all my heart,” the Hollywood actor beamed. The duo look more in love than ever, as they showed off their mega-watt smiles while posing for the photo.

To the love of my life. 21 glorious years. I love you with all my heart.

The couple’s romance first blossomed when they met on set of the Australian TV show Corelli in 1995. Hugh admitted he “had this major crush” on Deborra right from the start, and “was so embarrassed that [he] didn’t talk to her for about a week.” The 48-year-old actor quickly overcame his shyness and in April 1996 the lovebirds became husband and wife.

In the past, the Les Misérables star has expressed how “grateful” he is that the two met during that production. “She’s the greatest thing that ever happened to me,” he shared during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres show last year.

After more than two decades of wedded bliss and becoming parents to son Oscar (16) and daughter Ava (11), the Academy Award nominee says that life with Deborra just keeps getting better and better. And it’s not just Hugh that is charmed by the 61-year-old actress. "If anyone meets my wife, they're like, 'You're all right, Hugh, but your wife is awesome,'" the actor shared with Good Housekeeping, adding, "Everyone who meets her loves her."
