Chris Pratt is feeling practically reborn himself since welcoming son Jack last August.
“There’s not that much left that really excites you … where you’re like, ‘Wow. I can’t believe that,’ ” the Zero Dark Thirty star explains says of being a sometimes jaded public figure in an interview airing Tuesday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Jack changed all that. “To see a baby get that excited by everything because everything is a first … I’m reliving all the firsts all over again. The first time he recognizes the first laugh or me. Or the first taste of something sweet,” says Pratt.
“Everything is a brand-new experience. The first time they realize that the sound they’re hearing is the thing that they’re seeing.”

Pratt, 33, and wife Anna Faris aren’t above having a little fun with Jack’s innocence, however. They recently fed him a lemon, just to see how he would react — a video of which the Parks and Recreation star shows to Ellen during the interview.
“He doesn’t know if he likes it or not,” DeGeneres notes.
