Anna Faris appears on the cover of the April 2015 issue of Health magazine and inside she opens up about her high risk pregnancy with her son Jack. Now that he’s two-years-old, she can openly discuss the struggle that she and husband Chris Pratt went through.
She said, “Jack’s doing so well. I think that’s why we can talk about it now a little bit. He’s just so happy, bright and funny. For a while I thought maybe I’d be a stay-at-home mom for a couple of years. But in Hollywood, it’s not as though it’s always a choice, you know? You feel very little control over the trajectory of your own career.”
Their son was born two months ahead of his due date, which gave them both a big scare. She said, “I was having an uneventful, happy pregnancy, and so it was really a huge surprise that my water broke in the middle of the night. I wish we didn’t have this biological clock. I’m thinking we have to start talking about it, looking at all kinds of options. I’m so lucky that I have a partner in Chris who’s in the same industry and really understands what’s required of me in terms of time commitment. But I was like, ‘Oh man, this s**t is f***ing hard.'”
Her high risk status isn’t deterring her from wanting to expand their family. She said, “Very much so. But it will definitely be a whole new complication because now I’m, like, a high-risk pregnancy, so it requires some different monitoring. My doctor’s like, ‘I don’t think you’ll have to be on bed rest the whole time.’ And I’m like, ‘I’m on a show.'”
Faris gushed about Pratt saying, “He makes me feel really beautiful even when I’m feeling disgusting. I’ll be in boxer shorts and a grubby T-shirt with greasy hair, and he’ll still be like, ‘Whoa, honey. Whoaaa.'”
It also helps that the Jurassic Park actor, 35, has been vigilant about maintaining his buff body. “Things are working in my favor right now,” Faris noted. “My job is so physical. I just don’t have time to sit down. I’ll get, like, a 15-minute break to eat a little bit, and then they’re like, ‘C’mon, we have to go!’ The other thing is that Chris is on a diet, which is helping me.'”
Working out with her husband, however, is not her forte. “When I work out with Chris at home, we go through a little routine,” she explained. “He has me do lunges and stuff, and the lunges get hard after a while. It’s really frustrating when someone you love is telling you how to improve your form!” And despite her personal vendetta against workouts, Faris says nothing in the world makes her happier than spending time with her family.
She is looking fantastic, isn’t she?
