Chris Pratt has revealed that he cried after receiving backlash for thanking his wife for a “healthy” daughter last year.

Chris also shares son Jack Pratt, nine, with his ex-wife actress Anna Faris.
Chris Pratt received backlash after thanking his wife for giving him a ‘healthy’ baby
Taking to his Instagram last November, the father of three gushed about his wife Katherine and how she gave him a “healthy” daughter.
However, this caused many fans to believe he was taking a dig at his ex-wife due to their son being born prematurely.
Speaking about the backlash, Chris told Men’s Health: “That is f****d up. My son’s gonna read that one day. He’s 9. And it’s etched in digital stone. It really f***ing bothered me, dude. I cried about it.”
Chris Pratt’s post that caused the backlash
In the November post, Chris shared a snap of his wife with the caption: “Guys. For real. 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, she chews so loudly that sometimes i put in my ear buds to drown it out, but that’s love!”
He continued: “She helps me with everything. In return, periodically, I open a jar of pickles. That’s the trade. Her heart is pure and it belongs to me. My greatest treasure right next to my Ken Griffey Jr Upper Deck Rookie card.”
“Which if you know, you know is saying a lot. It’s her birthday in about 6 weeks. So if I don’t get her anything, I’ll tell her to look back on this post. Love you honey.”
