Chris Hemsworth is grateful for the women in his life.

The actor celebrated International Women’s Day on Thursday with a heartfelt Instagram post dedicated to all the strong women surrounding him.

“Happy international women’s day to my beautiful wife, daughter, Mum and all the incredible women out there for their strength, compassion and courage to make the world a better place,” he wrote. “Let’s not forget that the women of tomorrow are being grown and nurtured among the children of today! Yet another reason to #defendchildhood for all children today and every other day!”

Hemsworth posted a series of photos featuring his wife Elsa Pataky, daughter India and mom Leonie.

The Thor actor, 34, has been spending a lot of time with his family lately, taking a camping trip in Australia with Pataky and his three children.

The family has spent the majority of their time outside, with Hemsworth teaching his children how to surf.

In a video posted to Instagram, India, 5, fearlessly follows her father into the ocean.

The grommet – which is what young surfers are known as – then jumped on her dad’s back and road a wave.

The couple has twin sons, 3-year-olds Sasha and Tristan, who were also on the family trip.

Hemsworth is also making sure they know the family trade. One of his boys was already able to stand up, with their proud dad showing a video of one of the twins riding a wave on a foam board.

Hemsworth recently told GQ Australia last year that the secret to his seven-year marriage with Pataky is making quality time together a priority.

“Once you have children, every instinct and every moment of your time is consumed by that. You’ve got nothing for each other,” he revealed. “So, make sure you have date night even if it’s once in a blue moon because most of the time you’re just too tired and you’d actually prefer to sleep.”
