Hugh Jackman paid a sweet – and somewhat puzzling – tribute to his wife as he led the stars sharing the love on Valentine’s Day.

The Wolverine actor posted a picture of himself midway through a jigsaw puzzle for which the image was a picture of himself and his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness.

Jackman, 51, also shared a picture of the original photo used in the puzzle, a snap of the couple standing on a beach together, his arm around her chest.

He simply wrote “#happyvalentinesday”, and his fans were overjoyed at the way he marked February 14.

“Omg how cute,” one wrote in the comments, while another said they are a “beautiful couple”.

Australian Jackman and actress and producer Furness, 64, have been married since 1996.

Other celebrities getting soppy on the most romantic day of the year on social media included Victoria and David Beckham, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Rochelle and Marvin Humes.

Victoria shared a card written for her and dictated by daughter Harper on her Instagram Stories.

The 45-year-old former Spice Girls star also shared clips of a large array of Valentine’s Day-themed balloons, flowers and a card from husband David to Harper, and a bizarre gift for herself from David.

Along with a picture of a sharing bag of chocolate Minstrels and a copy of Country Life magazine, Victoria wrote: “It’s a long story… I love you @davidbeckham x.”

On his own Instagram page, David, 44, shared throwback pictures of himself with Victoria and images with their children, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper.
