Chris Hemsworth Explains Why He Named His Daughter, India

Chris Hemsworth Baby

Chris Hemsworth, the star of the blockbuster hit, The Avengers recently welcomed a baby girl to the world, named India. Now, a lot of people have been speculating why he’d call her that – although we actually kind of like it. His wife, Elsa Pataky delivered the baby in a hospital in London last week but they had only confirmed the news on Saturday.

Speaking to E! News about his daughter’s name: “It was just a name we liked, I always kind of liked Indie or Indiana for a boy and she liked India. We sorta went, ‘Oh well, whether it’s a boy or girl that will decide’. It just seemed to fit. He continued: “I’ve wanted to have kids for a long time, and here it is, and I couldn’t be happier. [It was] very recently – this is my politician[‘s answer], kind of, not giving too much away.”

Hemsworth is currently promoting his latest movie, Snow White and the Huntsman featuring Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron. It was also confirmed last week that Chris will be shooting scenes for Thor 2 later this year after a successful opening of the first movie of the franchise. We’re pleased to hear the family is happy and healthy! Congratulations.
