Hugh Jackman: Celebuzz’s 2009 Father of the Year

Aussie hunk Hugh Jackman may make a living tearing things to shreds on the big screen, but on the domestic front it’s an entirely different matter.

When he’s not making hearts flutter in the nation’s cineplexes, Jackman can usually be found spending quality time with his two children, 8-year-old son Oscar Maximillian and four-year-old daughter Ava Eliot, whom he adopted with wife Deborra-Lee Furness.

Whether he’s treating the tots to a sweet, sticky treat or sitting son Oscar down for “the talk,” Jackman, 40, is the model of fatherhood in a business that isn’t always conducive to solid parenting.

For these reasons and more, Celebuzz is bestowing Jackman with the 2009 Father of the Year Award. Congrats, Hugh!
