One thing that can make any heart melt is to hear a parent gush over their child. Though some kids end up whining it off, for parents, it’s just their way of saying, “We’re proud of you.” No doubt this is what Chris Pratt was all about when he’s talking about his son Jack.
On Wednesday, Jan. 7, 2015, Pratt was invited to guest at the “Ellen DeGeneres Show,” where he promoted the seventh and last season of “Parks and Recreation.” Eventually, their conversation led to him opening up about his son Jack.
During the interview, Pratt called Jack his “therapist” as he tells stories of his son being so vocal, polite and smart for his young age. In one incident, Pratt told his son to go to bed and the boy replied, “I thought about it and no thanks, Dad. Not right now.” And because of the polite reply, Jack ended up staying up for a while.
Another incident Pratt mentioned was when the family went to a retreat over the holidays. Pratt sat down and told Jack, “You know, Jack, there’s a lot of people here and it’s very loud. People are gonna be having a lot of fun and their might even be some tension.” To which the boy commented, “It’s family.” Nearly in tears, Pratt told him, “Thank you, son. You’re right.”
Pratt’s wife, Anna Faris, gave birth to the little boy in August 2012, a few months before his supposed due date. Because of their son being born premature, the couple was informed that their son might have special needs, as well as require a cosmetic surgery to correct his eyes.
And yet, despite of their son being a premature baby, Jack grew up to be, as Pratt had described, “a strong, smart, happy, funny, beautiful boy who loves monster trucks and Daniel Tiger, and, believe it or not, loves vegetables” at the March of Dimes Celebration of Babies in December 2014.
