X-men actor Hugh Jackman,wife,and two adopted children Oscar Maximillian, 7 1/2, and Ava Eliot, 2 1/2, were in Rose bay,Sydney this weekend. Many people are curious as to the ethnicity of Hugh’s older child,Oscar Maximillian.In an interview with magazine New Idea,Hugh says the following about the ethnicity of his children:
Oscar is a bit of everything – African-American, Caucasian, Hawaiian and Cherokee. We specifically requested a bi-racial child because there was more of a need. People will wait 18 months to adopt a little blonde girl; meanwhile, bi-racial children are turned away. The same was true for Ava, she’s half Mexican, half German.
