Like most parents, Chris Pratt loves talking up his kid…but it’s even better when it comes from such a genuine and fatherly place!
“He’s funny and smart and very independent,” the Jurassic World star tells PEOPLE about his son Jack, 2. “Sometimes I see [Anna] in him and sometimes I see myself, and sometimes I see someone that is totally his own thing. He also is his own person.”
In the last year, Pratt promoted Guardians of the Galaxy and shot Jurassic nearly back-to-back, and dad and son stayed in close contact.
“FaceTime, phone calls, videos, pictures, Skype and things like that,” says the actor. “He’s becoming very vocal and things he’s saying now are just really special. Every day it’s something new.”
Because of the nature of his parents’ work, Jack has also become a flying PRO.
“He doesn’t even think twice now,” says Pratt, chuckling. “Jack is at that point now [where he’s] just sitting in his little chair, he’ll go and look out the window and keep playing with his toys. The next thing you know, we’re 30,000 feet in the air and it’s just another day at the office for him!”
Most adorably, the Parks and Recreation star says his favorite moments are the ones with his family.
SWOON. How can you NOT like Chris Pratt?!
