Get ready for some baby talk from the sexiest, Asgard-iest dad around!

Chris Hemsworth, star of The Avengers the highly anticipated Snow White and the Huntsman, is celebrating the birth of his first child with wife Elsa Pataky. E!'s own Giuliana Rancic caught up with the hunky Huntsman at the SWATH press junket in London for loads of baby deets.

Not only did Hemsworth look as handsome as ever, but he gave E! News some exclusive scoop on the meaning behind his baby girl's moniker.

"It was just a name we liked, I always kind of liked Indie or Indiana for a boy and she liked India," Chris explained to E! News. "We sorta went, 'Oh well, whether it's a boy or girl that will decide.' It just seemed to fit."

Aww. What a sweet story and a perfect compromise for the beautiful couple! Between India's gorgeous Austrailian father and stunning Spanish mother, we're sure this babe's bound to be blessed in the genetics department.

Since the announcement was made, there have been multiple reports as to when, exactly, the baby was born, but Chris decided to stay mum on the topic.

"Very recently," was all he would admit when Giuliana asked the SWATH star about the exact date of birth, before adding, "This is my politician, kind of, not giving too much away."

Although Chris wouldn't reveal the exact birthday of his baby girl, he couldn't help but gush over just how thrilled he is to be a parent.

"I've wanted to have kids for a long time, and here it is, and I couldn't be happier."

Who knew Thor could make our hearts melt?! A hunky husband and an adorable dad—Elsa, we say you've got a keeper.

Post-SWATH promotion, Hemsworth headed home to spend time with his wife and their little one, expressing his joy over being a father, and admitting how much he missed his two favorite gals.

"It's amazing, it's really, really exciting…it's tough being here and not back with her."

Isn't he just the sweetest?!

Best of luck to the new parents—we can't wait to see pics of little India Rose.

Snow White and the Huntsman hits theaters June 1.
