The Mom actress, 39, recalled the 2012 birth of their son, Jack, while chatting with her guest, Olivia Munn. Munn asked the host about childbirth — and Faris didn’t hold back.
“You finally understand what a ‘pelvic floor’ is. It’s the muscles that surround your vagina,” Faris explained. “They throb for like two weeks [after you give birth].”
Faris remembers a lot more than the pain she experienced, though. “What makes up for whatever is kind of happening down in your pelvic floor area is Chris’ face when Jack was being born is just unforgettable. The amount of sort of that flood of an emotion …” she continued.
“Was he down there looking at it?” Munn asked.
“Oh, yeah,” Faris replied. “He was holding my hand and he’s just bursting, he’s just sobbing. I was so scared that he would be sort of turned off by the whole thing. Like, he’ll never be attracted to me again!”
She added: “That was amazing, seeing his face. He was so sweet, too. He kept saying, ‘Oh my God, honey! You were so brave! I saw how much pain you were in and you just powered through it.'”
Faris and the Jurassic World actor, 36, tied the knot in 2009 and welcomed their baby boy, now 3, in August 2012. “I didn’t love pregnancy. I was uncomfortable at times, and Jack came early,” she told Munn. (Jack spent some time in the NICU when he arrived.) “He came two months early, and I’m now in a high-risk category.”
Despite the difficulty, Faris would love one more child. “We both love kids, Chris and I have both dreamed about having a big family,” she said.
