While having his wife’s support means “everything” to Chris, he recently revealed that there is something he does that Elsa is “sick” of. During an interview with The Kyle and Jackie O Show, the dad-of-three revealed that the Spanish beauty is tired of seeing him shirtless on the big screen. “She’s just sick of it. She’s just like, ‘Put your clothes on,’” he shared. “It’s not nearly as exciting for her at all.”

Chris and Elsa are parents to daughter India, seven, and five-year-old twin sons, Sasha and Tristan. Although the Hollywood stars are raising their kids in the actor’s native Australia, Elsa is making sure her children never lose their Spanish roots. “[I do it] by surrounding them with Spaniards. I have almost all my family here to speak to them in Spanish,” she told HOLA! USA earlier this year. “I try to educate them and tell them about typical Spanish dishes. I’m going to try to go to Spain almost every summer, so that they know it and experience its culture... so they never lose their roots.”
