Chris Hemsworth Speaks Adoringly About Wife Elsa Pataky: Motherhood Gave Me a Greater Appreciation for Her

Aww, Chris!

Aww, Chris Hemsworth!

The Avengers star spoke glowingly of his wife, Elsa Pataky, to The Who magazine this month, saying that his love only grew for the 39-year-old model when the two became parents to their three children, India, Tristan, and Sasha.

“Watching her be a mother made me fall even more in love with her,” the 32-year-old actor said. “Once we had kids we were like, ‘We’re in it, this is it.’”

“All of a sudden I had a greater appreciation for my wife, she kind of came into her own when we had kids," he continued. "She certainly keeps me sane. I complain about things, she gets on with it.”

Goddamn, that's amazing.

When Hemsworth isn't saying the sweetest things about his wife, he's usually busy being out and about shirtless for one reason or another. While that's amazing for the rest of us, Pataky says it's actually what's on the inside that matters for her!

"It's funny when it's your husband. For me, sexy is the inside of someone. Of course I think he's beautiful and fit, but I will never tell him that because he will get too, how do you say, 'cocky'?" she joked in March. "He'll be like, 'What do you think of that?' And I'll say, 'Well, I've been the sexiest woman in Spain for a lot of years.' It's all just a joke, though."
