As Thor, Chris Hemsworth battles evil to protect the universe from annihilation. As himself, Hemsworth is preparing for a slightly messier (but much more fun!) battle: against dirty diapers, spit-ups and all the fun that comes with a new baby! The actor and his wife Elsa Pataky (who starred in this summer’s Fast and Furious 6) recently confirmed that they’re expecting their second baby. The couple are already parents to 18-month-old daughter India Rose.
Idris Elba may want to borrow some of the powers of one of his latest roles: Heimdall in the Thor: The Dark World movie. That’s because Elba and his girlfriend Naiyana Garth are reported (by Us Weekly) to be expecting their first baby together. Who wouldn’t want the ability to be all-seeing and all-hearing when you’ve got a baby crawling about? Of course, Elba does have experience with the whole parenting bit: he has a daughter Isan with ex-wife Dormowa Sherma. Maybe he won’t need those superhero powers after all!
