In December of 2010, we learned that Aussie actor Chris Hemsworth and Spanish model Elsa Pataky got themselves hitched. This week, we learn that the couple are expecting the birth of their first child! Chris and Elsa are holidaying this week off the coast of St. Barts on a PHAT yacht (complete with water slide and HELIPAD) and as you can see from the photos below, Elsa is happy showing off her burgeoning baby bump. Both Chris and Elsa were photographed enjoying the water slide off the yacht … which you can see in the fun photos below.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, will Chris Hemsworth be the fairest dad of them all? The Snow White and the Huntsman actor and wife Elsa Pataky are expecting their first child, his rep confirms to PEOPLE. “Chris and I are ecstatic, very happy and excited,” the Fast Five actress, 35, tells Hola! magazine. The couple will welcome the baby this spring and have opted for a delivery surprise. “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,” the mom-to-be explains. But although they may not be able to stock up on pink or blue baby items just yet, Pataky reveals there’s still plenty of preparing to do — including Hemsworth, 28, brushing up on his Spanish skills. “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,’” she says. As for her pregnancy cravings, Pataky admits her healthy eating habits have gone out the window since discovering she was pregnant. “Everything healthy I used to like, I now don’t like. All of a sudden, the only things that sound good to me are all the sweets in the world, hamburgers, and french fries,” she tells Hola!. “I have never eaten popcorn, and with the pregnancy I eat it all the time.” Pataky adds that since tying the knot with the Thor star in 2010, the pair have been basking in newlywed bliss. “The balance in this first year as a married couple is wonderful, it’s been a constant honeymoon,” she says. “I feel so fortunate to have found the person that completes me.”
HMMM … I’m not sure if it’s a very good idea for a pregnant lady to be jumping off boats and riding down water slides but … what the Hell do I know? It looks like Chris and Elsa are having a great time so … as long as they are being careful, I suppose there’s no harm. I really love Chris and Elsa together and I’m happy to know that they are expecting their first baby. I’m always very impressed when a couple decides to keep the gender of their baby a surprise until it’s born … doing so takes a lot of will power. Here’s to the happy couple and their expanding family. Congrats!
