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.”
