“Thor” star Chris Hemsworth and his actress wife, Elsa Pataky, have announced that they are expecting their first child together.
A rep for the actor confirmed the news to People.com, and the “Fast Five” actress is opening up about the baby in a new interview in Hola! magazine, revealing that their bundle of joy will join them this spring.
“Since it’s our first child, we don’t care if it’s a boy or girl, our only wish is that it’s healthy,” Pataky said. “I’m only going to speak to the baby in Spanish. I already told my husband, ‘Get ready fast with Spanish because, if not, you’re not going to be able to understand what we say.’ ”
The news comes the same week the twosome was spotted on vacation in St. Barts with Pataky sporting a baby bump. “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 said. “You can’t ask for more.”
Hemsworth and Pataky were married in December 2010. In addition to impending fatherhood, Hemsworth has a busy 2012 slated for the big screen, with a number of highly anticipated flicks set for release, including “Snow White and the Huntsman” (along with “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart) and “The Avengers,” in which he’ll once again play the hammer-swinging Thor. Pataky also has a few films coming out, including “The Wine of Summer” and “All Things to All Men.”
