Chris Pratt and Anna Faris Joke: We Left Jack at Home to Have Fun at Oscars

02/22/2015 at 09:00 PM ET

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris can’t help but have fun together.

The couple joked with Robin Roberts on the Oscars red carpet about their son Jack, who stayed home for the big night.

“We have a little toddler at home, so we’re not going home,” Faris said with a laugh.

“Not going home, not for a week. Going out drinking for a week straight. He’s 2½, he can take care of himself for a few days,” the Guardians of the Galaxy actor, who wed Faris in 2009, added with a smile.

Jack is the couple’s only child, though Pratt has said that he’d like more children in the future.

Anna Faris Was ‘So Scared’ When She Went into Labor 9 Weeks Early

02/11/2015 at 12:45 PM ET

Anna Faris thought she had more than two months to go before she welcomed her first child with Chris Pratt.

But in August 2012, nine weeks ahead of her due date, the actress suddenly — and very unexpectedly — went into labor.

“My water broke in the middle of the night at seven months,” Faris, 38, says in Redbook magazine’s March issue. “We rushed to the hospital and they were able to halt active labor with magnesium.”

That night, Faris’s pregnancy plans changed: She was put on bed rest for four weeks in an attempt to delay her delivery.

“But on the seventh day, I went into labor again,” the Mom star recalls. “I was in denial. For hours I was like, ‘I’m just having indigestion.'”

Adds Faris, “Chris and I were so scared, but then Jack came out and, even though he was so tiny, he looked so good to us.”

Anna Faris: Why I’ll Be Walking the Red Carpet Without Chris Pratt

Anna Faris‘s son Jack is about to become her biggest fan.

“[He’s] been recognizing [me] if I’m in something on TV,” Faris tells PEOPLE of her 2-year-old son. “He’s starting to understand.”

The actress, 38, will co-host the 40th Annual People’s Choice Awards with Mom costar Allison Janney, live from the Nokia Theatre in Hollywood Wednesday night at 9 p.m. on CBS.

“There’s gonna be fear behind these eyes on the day I’m up there on stage,” shares Faris. “I’m gonna try to hide it. There’s gonna be some fear!”

But, luckily, she can count on Janney, 55, to be by her side. “I don’t think I could do it with anybody else right now,” she explains.

Chris Pratt: My Premature Son ‘Restored My Faith in God’

07/30/2014 at 04:00 PM ET

For Chris Pratt and Anna Faris, starting a family was a no-brainer.

More accurately, it was (as things always are in their marriage) two brains acting as one.

“It started [for us] around the same time, and I don’t think one of us wanted it any more than the other,” says the Guardians of the Galaxy star, who talks with PEOPLE about fatherhood, marriage and his rise to fame in the magazine’s new issue. “She would say, ‘How do you feel about that?’ and I would say, ‘Damn, I’ve been kind of thinking about that too! I think that’d be cool. Let’s make that happen.'”

But when their son, Jack, was born nine weeks premature in August 2012, the couple felt a helplessness with which many parents are all too familiar.

“We were scared for a long time,” Pratt, 35, says of the month that his first-born spent in an intensive care unit. “We prayed a lot.”

He turned to his family and close friends for support. And even at the darkest of hours, he treasured every moment with his son.

“It restored my faith in God, not that it needed to be restored, but it really redefined it,” the actor says. “The baby was so beautiful to us, and I look back at the photos of him and it must have been jarring for other people to come in and see him, but to us he was so beautiful and perfect.”

Chris Pratt: I Want Another Baby with Anna Faris

11/15/2013 at 09:00 AM ET

Chris Pratt literally dreams about the future — and he was ready to share some of those vivid visions with Ellen DeGeneres on Friday.

Topic No. 1? Baby No. 2 with wife Anna Faris.

“I did dream the other day that we had another baby,” the actor, 34, told the host during a sit-down on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “And I woke up and Anna said she’d had another dream that she was pregnant, so I was like, ‘Whoa, might you be pregnant?’ ”

Chalk it up to a case of wishful thinking. “I don’t think she is — this is not an announcement or anything,” Pratt explained, adding that he’d happily give son Jack a sibling.

What’s the secret to Anna Faris‘s super-buff arms?

Baby lifts!

“My arms have never been toned before and now they are because he’s HUGE,” the Mom star, 36, told PEOPLE Sunday on the Emmys red carpet, referring to son Jack, 13 months.

“He’s got a huge head, a huge body. He’s like 60 pounds,” she said in jest, but seriously added that the tot, who was born premature, is “so active.”

Jack might be gaining weight, but his father, actor Chris Pratt is shedding it — and not exactly to Faris’s liking.
