Hugh Jackman Reveals His Bedtime Secrets

The star of X-Men Origins: Wolverine was in daddy mode Tuesday night as he pushed his sleeping 3-year-old daughter, Ava, in an orange stroller – with his wife Deborra-Lee Furness by his side – to the Baby Buggy Bedtime Bash in New York's Central Park.

The event raised $282,000 for Baby Buggy, a charity founded by Jessica Seinfeld (and supported by husband Jerry) that provides everything from cribs to diapers to families in need.

Describing the bedtime routines of his two kids, Ava, and Oscar, 8, Jackman, who is headed back to Broadway this fall with Daniel Craig, quips, "They go to bed, bath and beyond!"

So what does he think every parent should have in their arsenal of parenting goodies? "Stroller!" he says. "No amount of gym work readies you for the dead weight of a child who's asleep for an hour through the park. And I've done that before. We have a nice, cheap, 20-buck stroller.
We lose them everywhere. We leave them places. So there you go"!

Jackman aslo revealed his secret to getting his children to sleep soundly at night is by giving them a good work out before bed. "First of all you got to run them around before the bath. Play a game of hide and seek or wrestle and muck around," Jackman, 40, says. "Then they are exhausted. Then we all fall asleep on the bed."
