​Hugh Jackman captures a tender moment with his French bulldog, Dali

Just when we thought we couldn't love Hugh Jackman any more, the actor goes and posts a photo with his pooch that could melt even the iciest of hearts.

The image in question features the 45-year-old Australian actor rubbing noses with his adorable French bulldog, Dali.

The X-Men star simply captioned the photo, “Monday,” but revealed in another similarly precious photograph that the duo was reunited after some time apart.

Dali has become a bit of a fixture on Hugh’s Instagram account – on Sept. 9, the Broadway performer posted a close-up of his furry friend, captioned: “Woke up to this guy looking for attention! AKA. Walk me, please! #Dali.”

Hugh has landed a number of high-profile roles for the coming years, including a portrayal of P.T. Barnum in The Greatest Show on Earth; a reprisal of his character, Logan/Wolverine, in X-Men: Apocalypse and an untitled Wolverine sequel; and Blackbeard in Pan, a new film about Peter Pan.
