They’re one of the strongest couples in Hollywood and even have matching tattoos to honour their three kids.

But long before Elsa Pataky, 41, had ever laid eyes on her hubby Chris Hemsworth, it seems fate already knew they were meant to be.

The Spanish model has revealed she had an inking almost 20 years ago of the Thor symbol — the character her future husband would go on to portray.

“Yes, it’s about Thor and I ended up marrying who plays Thor!” she told Vogue Australia. “It is shocking how things in life turn out.”

“I just liked that [symbol] and the legend he had was so beautiful and I wanted to keep it,” she added.

The design, which is etched onto her bicep, was done at the tender age of 15, precisely 19 years before she met her Australian hubby in 2010.

In fact, when the pair met he hadn’t even reprised his Marvel role, making the tattoo even more meaningful.

“When I met him he wasn’t known at all and I grew with him and experienced all his successes and changes, and then he became just so huge and I’ve been sharing that too,” she said. 

Talk about adorable.

The couple share three kids together, daughter India Rose, five, and four-year-old twins, Tristan and Sasha, and split their time between Bryon Bay and LA. 

Last year the loved-up couple were spotted with matching symbols of Runic alphabet on their bodies, which translates in English to C, E, I, T and S, representing Chris, Elsa and the initials of their three kids.

Elsa also he star has a C on her ring finger that was drawn by Hemsworth, and got a matching tattoo of a wave with Miley Cyrus and Matt Damon’s wife, Luciana Barroso.
