'Thor' star and wife expecting second child

Chris Hemsworth and his wife are expecting their second child together.

The 'Thor: The Dark World' star's Spanish actress spouse Elsa Pataky is reportedly pregnant again, and the delighted couple cannot wait for their 18-month-old daughter India to have a younger sibling.

Spanish magazine HOLA! claims 'Fast & Furious 6' star Elsa, 37, is three months into the pregnancy and is due to give birth next Spring.

Australian hunk Hemsworth, 30, previously admitted having India with Elsa - whom he married in 2010 - was the best thing to ever happen to him, despite the challenges that go with it.

He said: "Being a father is certainly a task. But the best one that I could ever ask for.

"Being home, being with the family, that's what it's about ... It makes me much more relaxed with work, because I have something that is far more important to me now."

Pataky has also had nothing but praise for her husband's parenting skills, saying: "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."

The family are currently on vacation in the Canary Islands while Hemsworth shoots his next movie project.
