Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness are said to be close to moving back to their native Australia.

The couple, who just downsized from their $54.2million triplex apartment in the Big Apple to a smaller place in Chelsea, reportedly shipped their excess furniture back Down Under. 

‘Almost everything that didn’t go to the smaller apartment is being shipped to Oz,’ an insider allegedly told Woman’s Day.

Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness are said to be close to moving back to their native Australia. The couple, who just downsized from their $54.2million triplex apartment in the Big Apple to a smaller place in Chelsea, reportedly shipped their excess furniture back Down Under 

The source went on to say the couple ‘were serious’ about the move after years of living in New York for their careers.  

‘They’re serious about moving Down Under one day and this was the perfect opportunity to start sending things back,’ they added.

They added that downsizing to a smaller apartment meant the couple had more money for possible properties in Sydney.

‘Having a smaller place 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. 

According to the report, the couple are trying to convince their children Oscar, 22, and Ava, 17, to also make the move. 

However, with the pandemic over, their children are getting back in the swing of living life in New York.  

‘Their friends, their studies, hobbies, everything they know and love is based in New York,’ the insider said.

Oscar and Ava were hoping their parents would too, but it seems their long-term plans to move back to Australia will come sooner rather than later.

The couple called in movers over the weekend to cart their furniture from the $54.2million (USD$38.9million) triplex at the weekend. 

The place, which is in swanky Downtown Manhattan, was purchased by the couple for USD$21million (AUD$29.3million) about 14-years-ago.
