Chris Hemsworth Celebrates Wife's Birthday with Intimate Snaps (& One Major Thirst Trap)

Chris Hemsworth is helping his wife, Elsa Pataky, celebrate her birthday by sharing the love on his Instagram account.

The Thor actor posted a set of intimate photos to commemorate Pataky turning 45 years old. He captioned them, “Happy Birthday gorgeous @elsapatakyconfidential!!”

In the first shot, Pataky is seen smiling in front of a rushing waterfall, while the second image shows the model and her hubby taking a selfie. Hemsworth made sure to include a thirst trap with the final pic, where his muscular arms are prominently featured as they're wrapped around Pataky in a playful embrace.

Many fellow actors sent their birthday wishes to the Spanish model and actress. Australian actor Daniel Macpherson said, “Happy Birthday Ellllssaaa,” while Idris Elba commented a series of fire emojis and said, “HBD.” Meanwhile, Jeremy Renner added a bunch of clapping hands and heart emojis in his own comment.

This is not the first time Hemsworth has shown his gratitude for his wife on Instagram. Back in May, the actor made a loving Mother's Day post, where he said, “Happy Mother’s Day to all the brilliant, hardworking, kid carrying, bar raising, husband-putting-up-with-ing woman out there!! We salute you. @elsapatakyconfidential.” In the photo, Pataky is surrounded by the pair's three children: India Rose (9) and twins Tristan and Sasha (7).

Hemsworth and Pataky have been married since 2010, when they tied the knot during the holidays. During an interview with GQ Australia, we learned that Pataky has sacrificed much of her career to help raise their children, with Hemsworth saying, “In terms of work, she’s certainly given up more than I have.”

We love seeing the Avengers star show appreciation for his wife.
