Les Miz’s HUGH JACKMAN’s stunning confession.

Msr. Wolverine himself shared his sorrow of parenting with Katie Couric, telling her of his emotional devastation following his wife Deborra Lee Furness' tragic multiple miscarriages.

Jackman, 44,  revealed revealing that Deborra underwent several IVF treatments, enduring "couple of miscarriages" in the couple's bid to become

Hugh pointed out he and Deborra had always planned to adopt but wanted to bear fruit on their own.

"To be clear, Deb and I always wanted to adopt," Jackman said. "So that was always in our plan. We didn't know where in the process that would happen but biologically obviously we tried and it was not happening for us and it is a difficult time.

"We did IVF and Deb had a couple of miscarriages. I'll never forget it,  the miscarriage thing… It happens to one in three pregnancies. But it's very, very rarely talked about. It's almost secretive, so I hope Deb doesn't mind me bringing it up now.

"It's a good thing to talk about it. It's more common and it is tough. There's a grieving that you have to go through. So the moment Oscar was born, all the heartache just melted away."

Jackman and Furness are now happy parents to adopted Oscar, 12, and Ava, 7, and the actor shares that fatherhood is everything - and so much more -  than he ever hoped for, RadarOnline.com noted.

"Parents know you can't prepare … Nothing can prepare you," he confessed. "You can't even explain how incredible it is and that avalanche of emotion that comes and how it opens up your heart, how it frustrates you, how it angers you, how everything is just all the sudden how alive you are as a parent."
