Thor’s a dad!

Chris Hemsworth, who flexes his muscles as the Marvel superhero in The Avengers, and his actress wife Elsa Pataky welcomed a baby girl on Friday, May 11.

They named their first child India Rose. “We love the country and love the name,” Hemsworth, 28, tells USA Today.

Hemsworth, who also stars in the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman, and Pataky, 35, who appeared in Fast Five, tied the knot in 2010.

When she announced her pregnancy, the Spanish beauty had some other news — for Hemsworth — saying he’d better brush up on his language skills.

“I’m only going to speak to the baby in Spanish,” she said in an interview in Hola! magazine. “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.'”
