Chris Hemsworth, Elsa Pataky add twin babies to their family

In Norse mythology, Chris Hemsworth’s character Thor is the one who protects humankind. In Chris Hemsworth’s real life, he’s now got two new little humans to protect: Wife Elsa Pataky has given birth to twins.

That there are two new Hemsworth babies is just about all we know, according to E! News, which confirmed the births with the actor’s rep. No genders or names have been revealed. Ooh, the secrecy!

They announced the pregnancy in November, but didn’t reveal twins were on the way until January.

Already on board is daughter India Rose, who was born in early 2012. The couple got married in December 2010.


Incidentally, Hemsworth is from Australia, Pataky is from Spain and India Rose was born in London. Now the twins were born in L.A. So ... where is the family actually from? Something to puzzle over.

That Pataky was in labor — with a couple of security guards watching over the suite at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center — was reported Thursday afternoon by TMZ.
