Actor Chris Pratt: ‘My Premature Son Restored My Faith in God’


Are you thankful for the many joys your kids? Actor Chris Pratt sure is!

When he’s not busy being a Guardian of the Galaxy or French braiding the hair of interns, Chris Pratt is busy enjoying the experience of fatherhood.

Pratt and his wife, actress Anna Faris, had been contemplating parenthood together and finally felt that the time was right.

He told People about their decision to start a family, saying, “She would say, ‘How do you feel about that?’ and I would say, ‘I’ve been kind of thinking about that too.'”

Their son was born in August 2012, but he was nine weeks premature, and had to spend a full month in the hospital’s intensive care unit.

“We prayed a lot,” he said about the helplessness they felt about their son’s life.

“It restored my faith in God, not that it needed to be restored, but it really redefined it,” he said.

Now nearly two years old, Pratt calls his son Jack a fighter with “no fear in him.”
