Hugh Jackman is reportedly ready to mingle just weeks after he and his wife announced the end of their 27-year marriage.
The 54-year-old Hollywood actor is allegedly hoping to find a new love interest as soon as possible after his shock split from Deborra-Lee Furness.
“Finding love again is one of his biggest priorities,” a source entrusted the New Idea magazine.
Another insider added: “Everyone expects Hugh will remarry fairly quickly. He’s such a soft-hearted person and is likely to fall for the first girl who catches his eye. There’s a freeway of ladies lined up around the block to date him.”
While it’s not clear if Hugh has already set his eyes on a certain lady, Hollywood isn’t short of single celebrities in his age range including the likes of Jennifer Anniston, Christine Baumgartner, Sophia Vergara, Kylie Minogue, and more.
The news of Jackman’s return to the dating scene comes shortly after the actor and his wife announced they were parting ways in a joint statement.
“We have been blessed to share almost three decades together in a wonderful, loving marriage. Our journey now is shifting and we have decided to separate to pursue our individual growth,” they wrote.
“Our family has been and always will be our highest priority. We undertake this next chapter with gratitude, love, and kindness. We greatly appreciate your understanding in respecting our privacy as our family navigates this transition.”
While the news came as a shock for almost everyone, some sources have since suggested that the split was in the making for some time.
Another insider also claimed that the flame the couple shared got extinguished to the point they became nothing more than “roommates.”
