Rumors have swirled about the state of their marriage for the last year, which Faris addressed on her Podcast,Â Anna Faris is Unqualified. â€œ I take pride in how great my relationship is with Chris, but having said that, of course in this crazy world where heâ€™s off doing movies and Iâ€™m in L.A. raising our child. Of course Iâ€™m going to feel vulnerable, like any normal human would.â€
For his part, Pratt had gushed about how happy he was when his family joined him for the Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol II press tour. “My dear sweetÂ @annafarisÂ … Thank you for the support honey! You look so beautiful. These press tours can be such a whirlwind. I’m grateful to have you and the boy with me on this one. Although it’s 3:00am right now, I was just awakened by a square kick to the back as little man climbed into bed and then must have had a karate dream or something and now I can’t sleep. I’m on insta instead. All you dads and moms know what I’m talking about.”
The pair met in 2007 on the set ofÂ Take Me Home Tonight and have been married for eight years. They have a four-year-old son, Jack.
