Chris Pratt doesn’t need to stray far from home to seek guidance! The Guardians of the Galaxy actor gushed about his 2-year-old son Jack and the “profound things” he says during The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, Jan. 7.
“He says amazing things,” Pratt, 35, said, recalling one specific example. “I was laying next to our bed and we made a little nest for him with lots of pillows during a retreat we did over the holidays…because we didn’t have a crib,” Pratt explained to DeGeneres.
“I said, ‘You know, Jack, there’s a lot of people here and it’s very loud. People are going to be having a lot of fun and there might even be some tension.’ And he just said, ‘It’s family.’ I almost started crying,” Pratt joked (but not really!). “He’s like my therapist.”
Pratt and wife Anna Faris welcomed their baby boy in August 2012, only recently revealing in full detail about the health issues following his premature birth. But despite the scary situation (Jack was born nine weeks early and at just three pounds), the Parks and Recreation hunk says Jack is talking a lot and hasn’t hit that terrible twos stage.
“It really is easy to be patient with this kid. He really is a remarkable kid,” Pratt said. “He’s so vocal and it’s super frustrating because you’re like, ‘Jack, it’s time for bed.’ And he’ll go: ‘Hmm, I thought about it and no thanks, dad. Not right now.’ He’s so polite! What am I supposed to do?”
