‘It’s a very sad day for our family,’ he wrote in the caption. ‘Dali, our beloved Frenchie, passed away last night. He would have been 12 next month … which I’m told is a long life for this breed. I always, always called him the ROCKSTAR.

‘Because he was! He marched to the beat of his own drum, was loved by the whole world, and boy did he have a good life. We will miss him but know he’s howling in heaven, ruling the roost and enjoying the all you can eat buffet. RIP Dali Rockstar Jackman. We love you!’

Jackman and his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, adopted Dali back in 2010. They also have another dog named Allegra.

The Broadway star regularly shares pup updates with his 30 million followers on Instagram and previously joked that his canine companions were ‘way more famous’ than him.

He previously joked: ‘My dogs are way more famous than me! If I post anything about my dogs, it blows up. I just did a play and fans were coming to the theater – but it wasn’t for me! I was taking the puppy into the theater and the fans would say ‘When’s the dog coming?’ They came to see the puppy.’

‘They didn’t care about me! And I get it, they’re way more interesting than me!’ the star quipped.
