Does Chris Hemsworth Have Kids?

Chris Hemsworth is a 35-year-old Australian actor who rose to fame when portraying the Norse God of Thunder, Thor, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. His wife is 42-year-old Spanish actress and model, Elsa Pataky, who is best known for her role in the Fast and Furious film franchise. The head-over-heels in love couple met in 2010 and were married by the end of the year. They’ve remained happily married since.

Now fans wonder if the two — their marriage is getting very close to a decade — have started a family. Does Hemsworth have kids with his wife? Here’s what we know.

Does Chris Hemsworth have kids?

Hemsworth and Pataky have three children together. The couple first welcomed a daughter, India Rose, into the world on May 11, 2012, in London, England. When asked whether the name held any significance, Hemsworth explained: “I always kind of liked Indie or Indiana for a boy, and she liked India. We sort of went, ‘Oh well, whether it’s a boy or girl, that will decide.’ It just seemed to fit.”

Just under two years later, the family of three welcomed twin boys: Tristan and Sasha. They were born in West Hollywood, California, on March 18, 2014. Fun fact: Since the young boys love animals so much, their parents had a petting zoo at their first birthday party.

Chris Hemsworth loves being a dad

To his children, Hemsworth is a real life superhero. In a recent interview, the future Hulk Hogan actor opened up about what his home life is like. The way he talks about his children and being their father is downright heartwarming. He shared an example of winning a Dad race at his daughter’s school in Australia, and how proud he was of that particular accomplishment. 

He also shared just how protective he can be of his family, including protecting his children from the press. Although both he and his wife do share a bit of an inside look at their lives together with the children, they take great care to avoid facial shots of the kids whenever possible. They also tend to be particular about what parts of their personal lives are shared. 

Family time with India Rose

Around this time last year, the Hemsworth family took a much-needed and well-deserved family vacation. Their vacation of choice was an Australian camping trip, and the pictures from the event show just how much fun the family had. The cutest moment of the trip was when Hemsworth was teaching his six-year-old daughter how to surf.

One image that was posted to Twitter had a funny caption about India Rose being the surf coach instead. Hemsworth wrote, “Day two with my surf coach, she’s like a little angel on my shoulder constantly feeding me knowledge and inspiration and occasionally heavy handed criticism that borders on abuse but I know it’s for my own good (joke) Thank you coach Indi you’re the greatest, love u.”

Teaching Sasha and Tristan to fish

Camping on the Australia coastline is quite obviously one of Hemsworth’s favorite things to do with his children because recently he posted images of another trip they took. This time, he is shown teaching the twins how to fish. There is also a very cute image of Hemsworth and Pataky taking a selfie together.

The parents remember to take time for themselves

Although much of their life revolves around their three children, Hemsworth and his wife know just how important it is to take time for just themselves as a couple. This is clear through the numerous social media posts of the two enjoying a bit of “parent’s time.”
