It’s been a busy year so far for Aussie actor Chris Hemsworth after teaming up with an A-list cast for the box office hit ‘The Avengers.’

But the superhero is now taking on a brand new role - being a first time father!

According to USA Today, the actor’s wife, Elsa Pataky, gave birth to their daughter, India Rose, in a London Hospital on Friday.

“We love the country and love the name,” the Hollywood hottie revealed to USA Today in a phone interview over the weekend.

Elsa, who married the ‘Thor’ actor in 2010, told Us Weekly in January that she was “delighted and excited” at their baby news.

"Having the person that you love by your side, and starting a family with them, is the best thing that can happen to you in this life," she added.

The former ‘Home And Away’ star will need to squeeze in some father and daughter time quickly, as he is set to hit the big screens alongside Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron in the hotly anticipated flick ‘Snow White And The Huntsman’ in June.
