Chris Hemsworth, wife welcome baby girl India

It's a great time to be Chris Hemsworth.

As the 28-year-old actor's superhero ensemble movie "The Avengers" brings in jaw-dropping box office returns, the "Thor" star has also become a first-time father.

Hemsworth and his wife, Spanish actress Elsa Pataky, have welcomed a baby girl named India, a rep for the actor told CNN.

While Hemsworth would only say to E!'s Giuliana Rancic that the two became three "very recently," he did explain the meaning behind his little girl's name.

β€œIt was just a name we liked,” Hemsworth said. β€œI always kind of liked Indie or Indiana for a boy, and [Elsa] liked India."

As the couple planned to keep the gender a surprise, "We sorta went, 'Oh well, whether it's a boy or a girl that will decide.' It just seemed to fit."

Pataky, 35, told the Spanish language magazine Hola! earlier this year about her excitement over becoming a mom, and Hemsworth added to E! that he too has been looking forward to this moment.

"I've wanted to have kids for a long time, and here it is, and I couldn't be happier," he said.

Hemsworth and Pataky were married in December 2010 in Indonesia.

    I was so hoping that Chris Hemsworth wasn't gay. Now my fantasies are even more fulfilled because I can fantasize about him and know that I can never have him.

    I really wish they wouldn't print articles like this. i just wanted to continue in my fantasy world where Chris Hemsworth is single and really likes women in their 40's. Oh, and if you think he looks gay, then you don't know what gay looks like.

    • Oh Really?

      How stupid is that? No one knows what "Gay" looks like because "Gay"...but the people who point and cry "Oh he's gay" are usually just trying to distract attention from themselves. It's pretty much the same that all guys named Brett are gay...right EricBRETT?

      It's OK to come out of the closet now, son. I am tired of you sounding so angry all the time and accusing everyone of being gay, but hiding it yourself. If you attracted to Chris and he isn't gay, he's going to reject you. You can keep telling yourself he is gay, but you are only fooling yourself. It's time son, you are making your mother very upset. We accept you as you are!

      Oh, poor Dime. You must be a very, very little boy (in more ways than one)! At your age I guess you haven't learned the difference between someone being gay and HOPING someone is gay so you can continue fapping to their image. So sorry!

      He's hot. She is all make-up. Seriously, find a picture where she isn't all glammed up. Can we say Woof? He's too pretty for her. They'll be divorced in a year or so.
