This star is most definitely still on our radar, but we are taking a whole new direction today, it’s time to dig up the facts on Chris Pratt’s wife and the rest of his family. You know we are going to start with their Hollywood love story, not because it’s the first item in our title (OK actually that’s one reason), but because it feels right.
So without further ado, let’s dive right in.
Chris Pratt’s Wife
Her name is Anna Faris and she is known for a lot more than just being Chris Pratt’s wife. She was born Anna Kay Faris on November 29, 1976 and her parents actually encouraged her to pursue acting at a young age, though she never really thought that acting would become her bread and butter.
She already had a receptionist job lined up at an ad agency after graduating from college but somehow she ended up in L.A instead where she got her breakthrough role in 2000 starring in the horror-comedy parody film Scary Movie. Even though the movie was a quite a success, Anna spent the next six years, or so, finding her bearings in the industry.
By 2007 she continued with her comedic work and it was during that time that she met her second husband, Chris Pratt. Yes, Anna was previously married to Ben Indra shortly after they met on the set of the 1999 indie slasher Lovers Lane, but their marriage lasted from June 2004 till April 2007. Two years later she was married to Pratt.
Anyway, Chris and Anna met on the set of Take Me Home Tonight and they were married a short while after their meeting in 2009. Anna said she knew he was the one, but what really sealed the deal was a hobby they shared. In an interview with Chelsea Handler, she revealed this.
‘My husband and I, we collect bugs and skeletons…When Chris and I were first dating, he took me back to his apartment and he had a dead bug collection. And I had been collecting dead bugs for years, of course…And I started to cry.’
The two obviously complement each other and they went on to have a son together.
Chris Pratt’s Son
His name is Jack Pratt and he was born on August 25, 2012. He was born prematurely and the couple never seizes to be thankful that he’s alive and well today. Not only was he born nine weeks premature but he weighed 3 pounds and needed hernia surgery.
Here is what Chris had to say about the whole ordeal, ‘It restored my faith in God, not that it needed to be restored, but it really redefined it.’ Though he was only three pounds at the time and seemed like he would be a special needs child, he’s now grown up to become a perfectly healthy and happy little boy.
Apart from the fact that he has to wear glasses, the little boy is growing up healthy and strong, with parents who love him and never hesitate to rub his cuteness in our faces. No one is complaining though, keep the pictures coming Pratts.
Chris Pratt’s Brother
Chris is not the only Pratt in town, he has an older brother Cully Pratt and an older sister Angie Pratt. His brother seems to be a pretty important player in his life as he helped him land the lead role of Star Lord in the Marvel movie Guardians Of The Galaxy. Their family was rocked by the death of his father and it was particularly hard on Chris and his brother.
Pratt and… well Pratt, had the usual love hate relationship that brothers have growing up, according to Esquire, Pratt started planning bits when he was a kid and his older brother, Cully, would let him hang out with his friends as the group’s little mascot.
The interviewer also recognized in him an intensity that probably came from his childhood rivalry with Cully.
Chris Pratt’s Family
Apart from his Anna and Jack, Chris has other family members… obviously. His mother, Kathleen Louise (née Indahl), who later worked at a Safeway supermarket, and Daniel Clifton Pratt (who died in 2014 from multiple sclerosis) worked in mining and later remodeling houses.
The two had three children together of which Chris was the last born. As we mentioned earlier, his two elder siblings are Cully and Angie Pratt.
