Elsa Pataky And Chris Hemsworth Want Their Kids To Grow Up ‘In Nature’: ‘They’re Totally Wild’

Elsa Pataky has revealed she feels “totally at home” in Australia since she and hubby Chris Hemsworth decided to uproot their family to Byron Bay from LA in 2015.

‘They’re Totally Wild And Crazy’

The Madrid-born actress, who grew up in a city, says she wanted her three children with the Thor actor to experience an upbringing around nature, and that’s why they have settled in costal Byron.

“I feel like it’s a paradise,” she told TODAY.

“Australia is a little bit far from all my jobs, but I always say it’s totally worth it for me.

“I wanted my kids to grow up in nature … and they’re totally wild and crazy, but I love it. I grew up with horses and that was my dream [for them].”

Elsa, 40, also revealed that she speaks to her kids in Spanish at home and she herself can speak Spanish, English, French, Italian and Romanian.

Elsa’s mum Cristina Pataky is of Romanian and Hungarian heritage.

“I think it’s really important,” the actress added. “That’s what my mum did for me with Romanian. She speaks to me in Romanian all the time.”

But the Fate of the Furious star says her hubby Chris, 33, is yet to learn Spanish!

“He promised me that when we met. He said, ‘I will be speaking Spanish in two months.’ I’m like, ‘I want to see that.’ We’ve been together for six years and nothing!” she joked.

“[But] he’s improving – every year he learns, like, one or two words.”

Oh well, Chris may have been voted the Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine, but nobody’s perfect!

We’re glad Elsa and Chris decided to uproot their family Down Under, as it means we get to see more of them!
