Thor is officially a father!

The Avengers star Chris Hemsworth and his Spanish actress wife, Elsa Pataky, received the best Mother’s Day gift of all this week: a baby girl.

While Chris won’t confirm the baby’s exact birthdate to the press, the Australian-born actor is plenty willing to gush about his newborn, India Rose.

"I've wanted to have kids for a long time, and here it is, and I couldn't be happier,” he told E! News. "It's amazing, it's really, really exciting…it's tough being here and not back with her."

As for India’s name, Chris says the couple easily agreed on the moniker.
 
"It was just a name we liked, I always kind of liked Indie or Indiana for a boy and she liked India," he said. "We sorta went, 'Oh well, whether it's a boy or girl that will decide.' It just seemed to fit."
