Last week, Hugh spoke to The West Australian about his father’s health battle.
“He’s gone into palliative care with cancer,” the House Husbands star told the publication.
“It’s been hard for all of us. We [Hugh and his fiancé Kurt Roberts] were planning to get married on New Year’s Eve, but I want Dad to be there, so we’re not sure.”
Hugh also revealed that learning of his dad’s terminal illness prompted him to pop the question to Kurt after a whirlwind romance, as he wanted to savour the happy moments in life.
