With the highly anticipated flick Snow White and the Huntsmen set to hit theaters this March, Chris Hemsworth was already looking at a pretty busy year. But it's about to get a lot busier now that he has a little one on the way. That's right -- the hunky actor will be playing the role of full-time dad now that his wife Elsa Pataky is pregnant. Hemsworth's rep confirmed the exciting news to People magazine earlier today. I guess who we know the hottest dad award is going to go to this year.
How does the pair feel about becoming full time parents? Pataky told Hola! magazine, “Chris and I are ecstatic, very happy and excited." The couple will welcome the baby this spring and have opted to be surprised in regards to the child's gender. Pataky explained, “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." In my opinion, I just think they like to torture us with all the waiting. But there's still plenty to do before the little bundle arrives. In fact, Hemsworth is even brushing up on his Spanish. Pataky revealed to the magazine, “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."
And as far as their actual marriage goes, the duo (who married in 2010) are still in newlywed bliss. Pataky said, "The balance in this first year as a married couple is wonderful, it’s been a constant honeymoon. I feel so fortunate to have found the person that completes me.” And I'm sure adding a new addition to the family is only going to bring them closer together. Congratulations to the soon-to-be parents!
