Hugh Jackman has adopted a second child.

The 'X-Men' star and his wife, actress Deborra-Lee Furness, are now the proud parents of a baby daughter, Ava Eliot.The little girl is believed to have been born in Texas earlier this month, according to Melbourne's Herald Sun newspaper.Hugh's spokesman, John Palermo, told America's E! Online website: "They are very happy."The Australian couple, who have been married for nine years, already have an adopted son, Oscar Maximillian.Hunky Hugh recently admitted he loved playing house-husband while Deborra worked on the film 'Jindabyne'.He said at the time: "When I am looking out the window with my son, Oscar, I see ducks and kangaroos.This really is the wilds of Australia It has been some time since I've been this far in.

"I'm here minding my son, while Deb goes out to make a movie.

"This morning, I got her up at 530am, made her a cup of tea, sent her off to the set with a kiss and then I went back to bed!"

But Hugh won't have much time to look after the kids when he shoots the big screen version of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical 'Sunset Boulevard' later this year.
