Chris Hemsworth Gushes Over Newborn Daughter India Rose: She's 'The Cutest Thing Ever'

He wields Thor’s mighty hammer with ease, but proud papa Chris Hemsworth goes to pieces when asked about his newborn daughter, India Rose.

Access Hollywood caught up with the handsome new dad – currently starring opposite Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron in “Snow White and the Huntsman” — at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards to get the rundown on Chris’ life as a first-time father.

“It’s great. We’re having a great time,” the “Thor” star told Access, beaming, of his daughter with wife Elsa Pataky. “She’s sleeping and she’s just the cutest thing ever. It’s awesome.”

At only three 3 weeks old, Chris said little India is already energetic.

“She’s fantastic. She’s an active little kid, you know?” he said. “It’s great.”

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Chris and Elsa took their time choosing when it came to choosing a name for their baby girl.

“It was just something we both loved – there was no great sort of thought behind it,” Chris told Access Hollywood guest correspondent Tim Vincent last month, while promoting “Snow White and the Huntsman” in London. “There were a few ideas sort of bouncing around and everyone said to me, ‘Just wait until they are born and then you’ll know’ and it seemed to fit.”
