Baby on board for Chris Hemsworth and wife Elsa

Chris Hemsworth has a busy year ahead, appearing in at least a trio of films, but the actor is getting ready for a busier home life as well.

The "Thor" star, 28, and his wife, Spanish actress Elsa Pataky, are expecting their first child together, a rep for Hemsworth tells CNN.

According to People magazine, Pataky, 35, gushed to Hola! that the couple "are ecstatic, very happy and excited."

The 35-year-old mom-to-be added that they're keeping the gender a surprise, saying that "since it's our first child, we don't care if it's a boy or a girl, our only wish is that it's healthy."

Hemsworth and Pataky celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary this past December. The actor will appear alongside Kristen Stewart in "Snow White and the Huntsman" when it opens June 1.

      It's a good thing your parents didn't feel the same way.

      I'm sure kids don't like you either. Hmm actually, most people probably don't like you.
