Regarding the beginning of their relationship, the Spiderhead actor recalled to ELLE: “From the first time we met, we just made sense.

“She’s fun. She’s outgoing, and she has a sense of humor and a passionate attitude toward life, which is nice to try to keep up with.”

Months later in December of that same year, Elsa and Chris tied the knot in Australia during Christmas break.

How many children do they have?

In May 2012, Elsa and Chris welcomed the first of their three children, daughter India Rose.

In March 2014, the pair expanded their family even further with the arrival of their twin sons Sasha and Tristan.

While taking a stroll down memory lane, Elsa candidly told Vogue Australia: “We did everything very quickly, I don’t know how we survived as a couple.

“We were married and then a year after we had kids. It puts a lot of pressure on a marriage.

“But we came out good because there is a lot of love between us and we are very strong personalities but love each other so much. We make it work.”

Personal Life

She dated French actor Michaël Youn from 2004 to 2006 and American actor Adrien Brody from 2006 to 2009.

She started dating Australian actor Chris Hemsworth in early 2010 after meeting through their mutual representatives. Pataky and Hemsworth married during the Christmas holidays in 2010. They have three children together: a daughter and twin sons. In 2015, the family moved from Los Angeles to Byron Bay in Hemsworth’s native Australia.

In September 2012, Pataky won €310,000 in Spain’s Supreme Court against the publishing group Ediciones Zeta. In March 2007, Interviu magazine, owned by the Zeta, published topless photos of Pataky that had been taken with a long lens while Pataky was changing clothes during a photo shoot for Elle magazine. The Zeta group said it would appeal against the decision.
