Hugh Jackman posts message after beloved family member dies

Hugh Jackman has sadly announced the death of his beloved family French bulldog ‘Dali’.

The actor revealed the sad news on Instagram where the 53-year-old Wolverine star wrote; “It’s a very sad day for our family. Dali, our beloved Frenchie, passed away last night.

"He would've been 12 next month … which I'm told is a long life for this breed.


"I always, always called him the ROCKSTAR. Because he was!

"He marched to the beat of his own drum, was beloved by the whole world, and boy did he have a good life."

Ended the touching obituary, Jackman added: "We will miss him but know he's howling in heaven, ruling the roost and enjoying the all you can eat buffet. RIP Dali Rockstar Jackman. We love you!"

Dali - according to a report by PEOPLE,  was adopted in 2010 by Jackman and his wife Deborra Lee-Furness and has been an integral part of the family ever since.


Dali often featured on Jackman’s Instagram and other social media platforms, as well as being photographed in a series of places with Jackman, including the streets of New York, movie sets, the snow and the beach.

Despite the presumably Dali-shaped-hole in the Jackman’s hearts following his death, the Frenchie is survived by the family’s other dog Allegra, a poodle terrier - who remains in good health as far as the public is aware.

After taking some justified time to grieve the loss of his pup, Jackman is set to go back to work, with four upcoming projects listed on his IMDB profile.


The include The Son, Koala Man, The Good Spy and Apostle Paul.

In The Son, Jackman plays a father trying to navigate his son’s mental health and is set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
