Meet my superstar paw-rents

The fabulous lives of celebrities are certainly fun to follow, but what gets us even more starry-eyed are their adorable furkids. We shine the spotlight on famous paw-rents and their pets.

Hugh Jackman
Hugh Jackman may be known as Wolverine or The Greatest Showman to his fans, but to his Frenchie Dali and Poodle-Terrier cross Allegra, he’s just good ’ol Dad. Each time the star returns to New York from his native Australia, he snaps pics with his furkids and captions them with sentimental words like “REUNITED” or “Home”. He’s also often captured by the paparazzi walking Dali and Allegra. The pampered pooches have an enviable winter wardrobe of polar-fleece jackets, coats and snow booties. Lucky dogs indeed.

Ed Sheeran
Everybody’s favourite ginger is a bonafide cat man. Ed Sheeran won two Grammy awards last month, but he skipped the swanky awards ceremony in New York City in favour of celebrating at home with his Scottish Fold, Calippo. “Woke up to the news I won two Grammys last night. Thank you! This little fluff-ball is doing a bit of a celebratory dance, lots of love to everyone xx,” he wrote on Instagram the day after the awards, next to a pic of Calippo sprawled contentedly on his back. Ed also has a ginger cat named Dorito. In 2014, he rescued a month-old kitten, named him Graham, and started a Twitter account for the furry fella. He’s also best pals with fellow cat lover, Taylor Swift, and can be seen on Instagram canoodling with her kitties on occasion.
