A Chris Hemsworth minute

Sometimes it helps to escape our stress and anxieties at least for a bit with a Chris Hemsworth minute.

I can’t stand to look at the news lately. You all know what horrific story I’m talking about. Every time you turn on the TV, the radio, or click on your news feed today, it’s there. So much sadness. Unspeakably tragic.

So I thought we’d take a trip together to Santa Monica, California, for just a minute — before our minds are bombarded by another image or anxious thought, and before our own responsibilities and particular stresses seep back into our psyches — to visit clearly-enamoured new dad, Chris Hemsworth, 28, his beautiful wife Elsa Pataky, 35, and their 3-month-old baby India Rose.

The sun is shining, people are smiling, there’s so much love. And Chris-holding-his-baby is seriously lovely enough for us to get lost in, even if just for a moment. Hugs.
