Chris Hemsworth Welcomes New Baby India Amid Snow White Premiere Mania

Elsa Pataky and Chris Hemsworth

Chris Hemsworth
has been traipsing the globe, promoting his one-two punch of summer blockbusters, The Avengers (which had its second week at #1 at the box office and is breaking records all over the place) and Snow White and the Huntsman, which had a weekend-long press junket in London (we were there! more soon!) and premieres there today before its June 1 release. We wonder how his wife, Spanish model Elsa Pataky, feels about that, since she just gave birth to their first child, daughter India Rose, last week. Actually, Chris must feel a little guilty about having to work this weekend, since he wouldn’t even confirm whether India was born on Friday, as Us Weekly reports.

“It’s amazing, it’s really, really exciting,” he told E! News over the weekend. “It’s tough being here and not back with her.” Luckily, it sounds like Elsa had the baby in London, so he didn’t have to go too far to be with her.

As for the name, Hemsworth didn’t have much in the way of explanation for E!’s Giuliana Rancic: “It was just a name we liked, I always kind of liked Indie or Indiana for a boy and she liked India.” So, either they’re big Harrison Ford fans, or they fell in love with my dog India.
