Elsa Pataky made a rare public appearance when she decided to attend the Oceana Beach House Party to celebrate World Oceans Day in Santa Monica, Calif., on Saturday, June 8. Thirteen months after giving birth to daughter India (with Chris Hemsworth, her husband of two years), the Fast & Furious 6 actress admitted she doesn't often leave home without her famous family.

"Every mom knows that being a mom is difficult," the Spanish star told Us Weekly. "This was really convenient because we live really close." Pataky added that her hubby, 29, was taking care of India so she could attend the event and support a cause that's near and dear to her heart.

In fact, becoming a mother amplified Pataky's passion for preserving the earth. "You become more sensitive about a lot of things. With things like this, the ocean, you want to protect it for your kid to be able to see the world the way I saw it. That's important for them to not lose it," she explained. "There are so many animals endangered now in the ocean; it'll be sad she won't enjoy all those things."

Like Hemsworth (an avid surfer who hails from Australia), India is happiest near the water. "She loves being at the beach," Pataky, 36, told Us. "And she loves little dogs and all animals. I like having her around nature."

Pataky can't believe how quickly her mini-me is growing up. "She's almost walking, and she says, 'mama' and 'papa," she revealed. When asked if she's ready to give India a younger sibling, Pataky smiled and replied, "We'll see!"
