It’ll be babies two and three for Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky!

The actors are expecting twins this spring, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

“It’s incredibly exciting,” Hemsworth, 30, told reporters Thursday as he announced the 86th annual Academy Award nominations.

The couple, who are already parents to daughter India Rose, 19 months, stepped out Sunday for the Golden Globes, showing off the baby belly for the first time.

Hemsworth and Pataky, 37, announced the pregnancy in November, and make family time a priority.

“You have to make an effort and try to stay together as much as you can,” Pataky told PEOPLE in May.

“If we start splitting and doing other things it’s not going to last. We try and keep it as normal as much as we can — like a typical family.”

I thought her belly looked much bigger at the globes, given that it seems like they only recently announced the news. Congrats to them!

My identical sons are 42 now. I can’t even begin to express the happiness and joy they have brought to our lives. They are very lucky to be expecting twins as we were to have them.

That’s pretty exciting, but congratulations!

Still waiting for some celeb (anybody, really) to have triplets, tbh, and it hasn’t happened yet!

Melissa on

Beautiful man, beautiful wife (I’m jealous!) and sure to be beautiful children. I wish them all the best and admire their desire to be a normal family!

Congratulations to Chris and Elsa! They’ll definitely have their hands full but what a fun journey they have ahead of them.

Truthseeker on

Nice news!

They are my favorite Hollywood couple, mostly because they don’t seem to consider themselves “Hollywood.” They’re both wonderful people (not just basing that on their persona, I’ve worked with them and they’re awesome). Congrats to them and to big sister India!

One Hollywood couple who seems to really have it all together. They seem to truly be so dedicated to each other and their little girl. Good for them and congrats on their expanding family. Age is only a number…..and she looks beautiful.

PS on

Wow, twins! Twice as nice!

Kate on

Love him! Love them! Congratulations on the twins. She definitely got the “hot” Hemsworth brother.

Well, this is a surprise! I wonder if the twins are identical or fraternal? Personally, I’m hoping it’s a pair of identical cuties (mainly because there are so few identical twins in Hollywood. Most are fraternal- which, before anyone says anything, I realize is because fraternals are a lot more common then identicals in general!)! 🙂

Barbara on

I really love these two. They seem like a very normal couple who love their daughter very much. Now to be blessed with two more babies! Wow! Congratulations Chris, Elsa and India!!

I hope we will hear what sex these babies are soon. 🙂

mgawron on

congrations to u both….

@klutzy_girl– Dr. Drew and his wife have triplets…

Katie on

Oh how wonderful! They’re blessed. Celine Dion was expecting triplets but lost one and had the twin boys. Gives me hope. I’m 38 and have been trying for 4 years. We just lost our first baby at 12 weeks. I’m beyond devastated but always happy for anyone else who gets pregnant. What a gift!

Lion on

I know I am going to catch hell for this and I know this is not always the case and I am very happy for them. That being said when a woman in her late 30s is pregnant it shouldn’t be such a big shock to everyone it is twins. They most likely used IVF or fertility drugs which often result in multiples.

GammieJo on

Lion, naturally occurring twins are actually more common in the late 30s. It does not indicate IVF or fertility drugs, particularly when the age of the mother is only 37.

Thor is having Twins 🙂 Congrats Thor and his woman Cinderella:)

Terri on

Love them, they seem genuinely nice and normal. They appear to be good parents, too. Can’t wait to see those gorgeous babies!

Anonymous on

GammieJo- I agree wholeheartedly! I also want to add that they didn’t seem to have any trouble concieving their first child, who isn’t even two yet!

Jen on

Thor can make twins? Hell to the yeah!!

lovely123 on

She is 37 and he is 30…wow. I have to think she went the IVF route. That is fine, but she was probably thinking she wanted to get as much done as possible by 40.

Crazy Chick on

Sooo Cute! i wish them the best!

Reader on

His wife is hardly “Cinderella,” especially with her background in Spanish porn.
