Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky Name Twin Boys

Chris HemsworthTwo new little “Thors” have made their way into this world as Chris Hemsworth and his lovely Spanish wife, Elsa Pataky, both welcome and now name their newborn twin boys. The boys were born on March 18, at the Los Angeles Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

Hemsworth and Pataky have announced the names chosen for their new arrivals as Tristan and Sasha.  Their proud 37 year old mother also posted an image on Instagram on Monday, showing their cute little feet.  She wrote on the Instagram post that Tristan and Sasha had arrived on May 18, just after the full moon, and that they are already at home, followed by the words, “Complete happiness!!”

Married back in 2010, the stars of “Thor” (Chris Hemsworth) and the “Fast and Furious 6” (Elsa Pataky ) will have their hands full now as twin boys join their big sister,  India Rose, who was born back in May 2012.

Pataky has also written a blog for the Spanish web site “Glamour” on Monday, encouraging mothers and telling them to enjoy every second with their babies as it is “the most wonderful thing in the world.”  In the blog Pataky includes photos of the nursery which the couple have made ready for the babies, decorated in beautiful bright colors, as well as a twin baby stroller.

She also mentions that the nursery is actually India Rose’s room and that the little girl normally sleeps with them.  Pataky recommends that parents get themselves a really big bed (obviously thinking ahead for when Tristan and Sasha creep under the sheets!).

Speaking of the clothing they have purchased for the babies, Pataky mentions that she always buys 100 percent organic cotton and uses only ecological detergents that do not contain any chemical additives, because there’s nothing more delicate than the skin of a baby.  Lotions and products used for bathing India Rose and the two new little ones are also natural and organic.

Pataky also advises mothers to avoid using plastic items if possible.  While it is difficult, as so many products are made from plastic these days, she does recommend rather using glass bottles, dishes and glasses as well as earthenware products. The blog can be accessed from a link included at the end of this article.

Getting back to the new babies’ names, the choice is a pretty normal one for Hollywood and their meanings are reasonably appropriate.  Tristan is apparently a name of Welsh origin, which means “noise.”  Whether that is referring to Thor’s hammer is unknown, but let’s hope it doesn’t mean the couple will get no sleep at night!  Some sources say that Tristan is an “Arthurian Legend” baby name, which makes him a knight.

As for Sasha, the name apparently derives from Europe and means “defender and helper of mankind.”  How appropriate is that for the son of Thor (or Chris Hemsworth)!

And so, as Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky name their twin boys and give a more public introduction to their offspring, we will have to be patient and wait for more photos, but we can be sure that the two boys are as handsome as their dad.
