In light of Chris Hemsworth and his beautiful wife’s fifth wedding anniversary, the Thor actor opened up about the details of their wedding, which have – up until now – remained a mystery.
Speaking candidly during a recent appearance on ITV’s Good Morning Britain on Thursday, the father-of-three divulged the reason why he and Elsa decided to tie the knot just months after they met in 2010.
“It did happen quick and it just felt right, just, it made sense,” the 32-year-old said.
The couple certainly have an adventurous side in common!
“There was no great plan to any of it to be honest, we were on holiday and we said 'why don't we get married too?' and then the next minute..."
"There probably should have been some planning but it all worked out. Honestly, we had both our families on holiday at the same time, just randomly, and we said this is a good opportunity with everyone together so we just did it."
Well, if the shoe fits!
The genetically-blessed couple married shortly after Christmas in 2010 whilst on an island holiday in Sumba Indonesia.
Although it had only been a few months since they were introduced by talent agent William Ward, Chris truly believed that he and Elsa “just made sense” from the start.
The happy couple have since welcomed three gorgeous children into the world; three-year-old daughter India, and two-year-old twins Sasha and Tristan.
And it’s no secret that Chris is absolutely thriving in his role as a dad.
"It's not about you anymore which is refreshing and my kids are hilarious and insane and crazy - it's good," the proud papa quipped.
"You go from press tours and work and then straight back into reality and you're handed a child with a nappy."
"Happy birthday my little boys, there's nothing that makes me happier in life, than being a mum and watch you growing up everyday!" the proud mum penned on Instagram.
The doting dad’s latest two roles have been considered game-changers in the industry, as the Hollywood hunk has seen himself taking the back seat in two female lead films, Huntsman: Winter’s War and the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot.
Speaking to RadioTimes, Chris proudly declared himself a feminist.
“Oh yeah, for sure,” he replied when asked if he identified as a feminist. “My mum’s a big feminist. I think that my views on things, as far as respect for women and so on, came from my mum.”
“My dad has a very balanced and respectful view on a lot of things too. They were huge positive influences in my life,” he continued.
Chris has nothing but love for his happy family.
The Aussie actor also expressed his sincere hope that one day both males and females will be respected in every industry equally.
"I think the balance has been tipped for a long time heavily in the men's direction," he said.
"But it's a funny conversation to even have, because of course it should be that way. Of course it should be equal."
Proud feminist Chris uploaded this image on International Women's Day with the touching caption: "Happy #internationalwomensday to my mum, daughter, wife and all the other incredible, strong , amazing , intelligent women out there."
