Chris Hemsworth - Chris Hemsworth Reveals Inspiration For Baby Name

Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky named their first daughter India because it ''seemed to fit''.

The 'Snow White and the Huntsman' actor and his wife welcomed the baby into the world in London on Friday (11.05.12) and decided to give her the unusual moniker because it was the only one they could agree on.

He said: ''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 a girl that will decide.' It just seemed to fit.''

The 28-year-old Australian hunk admits he has wanted to have children for a while and is overjoyed with his newborn daughter.

He added to E! News: ''I've wanted to have kids for a long time and here it is. I couldn't be happier.''

Elsa previously revealed she was very confident her husband would be a good father.

She said: ''He's the person I feel closest to and we understand each other very well. And then I see him as a great dad - it's important to know if the person you're with will be good at parenthood.

''Chris is very good with kids. His older brother has two little girls and a third on the way. We always spend our holidays together and it's lovely to watch him with his nieces. I was mesmerised by it. He's going to make a great dad. He's very excited.''
