The Aussie dad of the year award clearly belongs to Chris Hemsworth

Come and marvel at the sheer awesomeness of actor Chris Hemsworth in his best role to date – daddy.

For anyone not familiar with the middle Hemsworth brother, let me catch you up to speed. Chris, who is married to the stunning Elsa Pataky, is quite possibly the easiest-on-the-eye actor to hail from Australia (sorry Hugh and Eric, you’re great too).  He has beautiful blue eyes, plays Thor in The Avengers film series and is the main attraction on his wife’s Instagram page.

Not only does Elsa like to showcase her man being the ultimate husband, but her page is also filled with super sweet snaps of Chris being a doting dad to their three young children, twin boys Tristan and Sasha and daughter, India Rose.

So what makes Chris our favourite Aussie dad?

There was that time he made a dinosaur birthday cake for his daughter’s birthday.

The family, who were in Byron Bay at the time, asked a professional cake maker to design the cake but she was too busy. So Chris headed to the kitchen and crafted out an adorable surprise for his daughter.

And then there was that time that Chris came home from a premiere and decided to make a late night snack with India Rose. Is there anything sweeter than a man in a suit in the kitchen?

Elsa snapped a sweet shot of Chris with his boys on the twins’ second birthday.

If that doesn’t pull at the heart strings, then how about that time Chris and his adorable trio took to the skies on a trip back to Australia?

Or when Chris and his daughter decided to do yoga on the beach?

The family snap of Elsa, Chris and their three babies is another perfect example of how this family man is winning our hearts, one beach walk at a time.

They say a family that plays together stays together and clearly the Hemsworth/Pataky clan are lapping up every moment spent together.
