Hugh Jackman's Quotes on Fatherhood:

"We feel that there are so many kids who need adopting. We thought we'd do it after having a couple of our own, but we just changed our mind."

"I have a terrific marriage, but unlike a lot of relationships where they ebb and flow, no matter what happens you fall deeper and deeper in love every day. It's kind of the best thing that can happen to you. It's thrilling."

"Becoming a father, I think it inevitably changes your perspective of life. I don't get nearly enough sleep. And the simplest things in life are completely satisfying. I find you don't have to do as much, like you don't go on as many outings."
