Fast & Furious 6 actress Elsa Pataky opened up to Us about family life with husband Chris Hemsworth and their 1-year-old daughter India.
“Every mom knows that being a mom is difficult,” Elsa said. “This was really convenient because we live really close.” She added that her hubby, 29, was taking care of India so she could attend the the Oceana Beach House Party to celebrate World Oceans Day in Santa Monica, Calif.
The Spanish actress, 36, says that motherhood has ignited her passion to preserve the planet.
“You become more sensitive about a lot of things. With things like this, the ocean, you want to protect it for your kid to be able to see the world the way I saw it. That’s important for them to not lose it,” she shared. “There are so many animals endangered now in the ocean; it’ll be sad she won’t enjoy all those things.”
Like her famous papa – an avid surfer who hails from Australia – India is happiest near the water.
“She loves being at the beach,” Elsa said. “And she loves little dogs and all animals. I like having her around nature.”
And it sounds like their daughter is growing like a weed. “She’s almost walking, and she says, ‘mama’ and ‘papa,” Elsa revealed. When asked if she’s ready to give India a younger sibling, the actress smiled and replied, “We’ll see!”
