She was only born last Friday but today India Rose enjoyed a day out in London with her famous father Chris Hemsworth.
The 28-year-old actor and his wife Elsa Pataky ventured out for a walk today but rather than push a pram, the Australian star kept his baby daughter close to him by holding her in his arms.
The blonde movie star appears to be a natural at fatherhood and looked happy and relaxed as he strolled with his family.

Cool, calm and collected: The Australian actor seemed happy and relaxed as he held his newborn daughter
Dressed casually in grey jeans, a matching T-shirt and a navy blue jacket, Hemsworth was clearly feeling the cold British weather.
He ensured that his daughter was kept safe and warm by wrapping her up in a beige baby blanket – and every now and then he glanced down at the child.
He also wore a pair of dark sunglasses – which were no doubt covering his tired eyes – and a grey beanie hat.
Not alone: The couple had a small entourage behind them who were no doubt family
Pataky looked fantastic despite only giving birth five days ago and wore a tiny pair of black shorts, matching tights and peep-toe heels.
She kept warm in nude-coloured jacket and also wore a pair of sunglasses as she adjusts to motherhood.
The blonde couldn't keep the smile off her face as the threesome strolled through a park, and she took a sneak peak at her daughter beneath the blanket.

Fatherhood: Chris has ably juggled his work and family commitments while promoting new film
Her husband was no doubt relishing in the fact that he was able to spend some proper quality time with the two females in his life following a hectic week of promoting his latest film, Snow White and the Huntsman.
Earlier this week, the actor kept his sunglasses firmly on as he arrived at London's Battersea Heliport after jetting in from Sussex, where a press conference for the fairytale film had taken place earlier in the day.

Hemsworth clutched several bags as he climbed out of the helicopter, looking in good spirits, if a little tired as he lifted up his glasses, as he headed inside the heliport.
The actor and wife Elsa welcomed daughter India into the world on Friday in London.
Talking about their choice of name for the little girl, Hemsworth told E! News: 'It was just a name we liked, I always kind of liked Indie or Indiana for a boy and she liked India.
'We sort of went, “Oh well, whether it's a boy or girl, that will decide.” It just seemed to fit.'
He added: 'I've wanted to have kids for a long time, and here it is, and I couldn't be happier.'
And while the actor's personal life is going from strength to strength, the same can be said for his career too.
No wonder he's got sunglasses on! Chris was back to work promoting his new movie Snow White And The Huntsman on Sunday
As well as appearing alongside Kristen Stewart in Snow White And The Huntsman, Hemsworth can also currently be seen reprising his role as Greek God Thor in Marvel's Avengers Assemble.
The movie, which boasts an all-star cast including Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Robert Downey Jr, Mark Ruffalo and Samuel L. Jackson, has made box office history by taking $1billion worldwide after a record second weekend.
And in the UK, the film has taken over 40million to date.
