Actress Anna Faris and her husband Chris Pratt have opened up in a revealing interview about the difficulty of their son’s premature birth back in 2012.
Baby Jack was born nine weeks before his due date, weighing only three pounds, and Anna says that the couple were scared for their little boy: “He was born at three pounds. And we were told, ‘Okay, you need to be prepared for raising a special-needs child’. And we felt like it was devastating, but also it felt like, you know, ‘We can do this.”
Chris then added to the interview with GQ magazine: “He’s alive.”
The couple also revealed that they prayed quite a lot following the little boy’s premature birth: “It restored my faith in God, not that it needed to be restored, but it really redefined it. The baby was so beautiful to us, and I look back at the photos of him and it must have been jarring for other people to come in and see him, but to us he was so beautiful and perfect.”
Chris and Anna were married back in 2009, before welcoming baby Jack in 2012.
What a beautiful little boy.
