Chris Hemsworth Becomes Proud New Father

Actor Chris Hemsworth, known as Thor in the blockbuster movie “The Avengers,” is now a proud father of a baby girl named India after his wife Elsa Pataky gave birth in London on Friday.

The 28-year-old action-movie actor first met Spanish actress Pataky in 2010; the pair tied the knot just three months after going public as a couple that December.

Following her pregnancy announcement in January the “delighted and excited” Fast Five star opened up to ¡Hola! about feeling blessed to be able to share her life with someone like Hemsworth.

“Having the person that you love by your side, and starting a family with them, is the best thing that can happen to you in this life,” Pataky, 35, shared. “You can’t ask for more.”

In April, the expectant Pataky accompanied her husband on the red carpet at The Avengers U.K. premiere, where the then papa-to-be sweetly rubbed his wife’s baby bump.

“She’s so proud of Chris and he’s proud of her,” a source told Us of the duo. “They are an adorable family already!”
