Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky have a parenting pact: ‘It is important for us’

Despite their celebrity status, Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky are just like any other parenting couple. 

In fact, the couple make sure they take it in turns to work so that the other is able to look after the kids.

In an interview with Today, Elsa revealed the pair – who are parents to India Rose, six, and four-year-old twins Sasha and Tristan – never accept work until they check with the other to make sure one of them is able to stay at home with the kids.

Elsa, 42, seemingly revealed the couple don’t use the help of nannies when it comes to raising their kids.

“I think it is important for us, for one of us to be there,” says Elsa. “I don’t think I’d be able to work if [Chris] didn’t have the time to be with them… He’s such a good dad.”

Talking of her appearance in Australian Netflix TV show Tidelands, the Spanish star said: “[Chris] had some time off and it was really good timing to shoot this show.”

Tidelands was filmed in Brisbane last year, not too far from their family home in Byron Bay.

“The shoot was here, very close to my house, I got to still be with my kids and they could be in school and we didn’t have to move,” she added.

“I am really glad I am getting back to acting.That is something I really missed – It’s my thing too, you know. It’s great.”

This comes after Bang Showbiz reported that Chris, 35, is very conscious of making sure work doesn’t get in the way of family time.

“When I was younger, I dreamed about having this kind of life and that’s exactly what I’m living now,” the Thor actor admitted.

“I am more mindful of leaving enough time between projects to be at home with my wife and our children.

“I am very conscious of my responsibilities as a father and I love my wife and children more than I can possibly describe.” 

What do you think of their parenting pact? Do you have one with your partner?
