Support For Anna Faris Is At An All-Time High After Chris Pratt's Instagram Post Thanking His New Wife For His "Healthy Daughter"

"Oh Anna Faris dodged a manbaby-sized bullet, huh."

Earlier today, Chris Pratt posted this...dare I say out-of-pocket, six-week-early birthday post for his wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger:

However, a big part of what people are zeroing in on is the sentence about Katherine giving him a "gorgeous, healthy daughter."

"Look how she’s looking at me! I mean. Find you somebody that looks at you like that!! You know!? We met in church. She’s given me an amazing life, a gorgeous healthy daughter..."

 

The reason people are calling out Pratt's choice of words is because his son with Anna Faris, Jack, was born nine weeks premature and had to spend several weeks in the NICU before he was able to go home.

In her memoir, Unqualified, Faris opened up even more about Jack's birth and those uncertain times:

"The pediatric neurosurgeon sat Chris and me down to tell us that Jack had some severe brain bleeding and there was a chance that he could be developmentally disabled."

Today, Jack is 9 and THRIVING. However, he did have to undergo surgeries as a newborn and currently has visual impairments as well as an ongoing, but not life-threatening, heart problem.

So, you can see why Chris Pratt's mention of his "healthy, gorgeous daughter" rubbed people the wrong way:

Anyway, the internet has come out in droves to support Anna and Jack:

The healthy daughter thing is a bit...considering he has a son with Anna Faris who has disabilities https://t.co/PgFO5SyNyA

I have two children. One is special needs. If someone described only one of my children as healthy and gorgeous, I’d probably lose my shit. Anna Faris and her beautiful son deserve better than these cheap shots. https://t.co/heiQc2QpZt

chris pratt shading his own fucking son with thanking his new wife giving him “a gorgeous healthy daughter” when his son has health issues is such a fucking low blow. i wish i had a father of the year award to hit him with. anna faris and jack doesn’t deserve this shit.

As a mom with a special needs son, and a stepdaughter who is 'normal' this is repulsive. Special needs kids have so many struggles against social stigmas, they don't need a parent throwing shade at them too. Poor Anna Faris having to coparent with this crap. https://t.co/8bHWwzAfzV

Overall, thanking your current wife for the "gorgeous, healthy daughter" she gave you while fully knowing the hardships you faced with your ex-wife after the premature birth of your oldest child...is at best a gross oversight and at worst just plain cruel. In conclusion:

May we all be like Anna Faris: so beloved that the entirety of the internet drags our ex for us.
