Chris Hemsworth Explains Naming His Newborn Daughter, India

Earlier, we reported that Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky had welcomed a baby girl to the world. The couple later revealed that her name was India which got quite a bit of attention from the media. Thankfully, before things got nasty due its controversial name, Hemsworth explained why he named his daughter India.

“It was just a name we liked, I always kind of liked Indie or Indiana for a boy and she liked India. We sorta went, ‘Oh well, whether it’s a boy or girl that will decide’. It just seemed to fit. I’ve wanted to have kids for a long time, and here it is, and I couldn’t be happier.”

The actor has already been told he’d be going back to work on his next movie, Thor 2 later this year after Marvel president, Kevin Feige made the announcement last week. Chris continued on the moment the baby was born: “[It was] very recently – this is my politician['s answer], kind of, not giving too much away.”
