As you may have heard, mamas, People Magazine in the U.S. has just bestowed its coveted Sexiest Man Alive title for 2014 upon Australian Chris Hemsworth. The star of hits like Thor, The Avengers and Rush is certainly crushing it in the box office, and he doesn’t photograph so badly, either:
But you know what sells us on Hemsworth? That he is by all accounts an incredibly loving and doting father to his daughter India, 2 1/2, and 8-month-old twin sons Sasha and Tristan. Look at him rocking that Baby Bjorn like a boss!
Hemsworth and his gorgeous wife, Spanish actress Elsa Pataky, might just be PR-savvy, but the Internet is filled with images of them out and about, happily frolicking with their bubs. And he manages to work a rave about parenting into just about every interview that he gives:
“Fatherhood is the greatest thing I’ve ever been a part of. When I’m at work, she’s what I’m thinking about, and when I’m not at work, she’s who I’m hanging out with!”
“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.”
“[Fatherhood] has certainly taken all my focus and attention away from work – or what have you – but that’s the main thing on my brain right now. It’s wonderful.”
“I couldn’t ask for anything more. Having a baby has made everything else less important, and it’s just wonderful.”
So even if you would have preferred a different Chris (Pratt, Pine, Evans), or Hemsworth’s own little brother, Hunger Games-starring Liam, for the title, you must at least admit he makes for a pretty sexy dad. Chris Hemsworth, we salute you!
