Anna Faris Is ‘Looking At All Kinds of Options’ for Another Baby

03/12/2015 at 09:20 AM ET

Anna Faris definitely wants to have a second child. But she’s a bit wary about it, too, having given birth to son Jack nine weeks early.

“We want to, very much so, but it will definitely be a whole new complication because now I’m, like, a high-risk pregnancy, so it requires some different monitoring,” the Mom actress, 38, tells the April issue of Health, on newsstands Friday.

“My doctor’s like, ‘I don’t think you’ll have to be on bed rest the whole time.’ And I’m like, ‘I’m on a show.’ ”

Faris says she was on bed rest for a week with Jack, but that was after her water broke.

“I was having an uneventful, happy pregnancy, and so it was really a huge surprise that my water broke in the middle of the night,” she explains. “I wish we didn’t have this biological clock. I’m thinking we have to start talking about [having more kids], looking at all kinds of options.”

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.”

Chris Pratt: Disciplining My Son Is ‘So Frustrating’

01/07/2015 at 01:00 PM ET

Chris Pratt is turning to his talkative 2½-year-old son Jack for both wisdom — and a bit of parenting therapy.

The Parks and Recreation star, appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday, said his verbal son, who was born prematurely, has dazzled with his thoughtfulness, seeming to understand a lot of complicated things.

“He really is a remarkable kid,” Pratt, 35, tells Ellen DeGeneres, noting the so-called Terrible Twos has not happened at his house.

But, he adds, Jack, his first child with wife Anna Faris, is already telling it like it is.

“From what I understand, most of the Terrible Two stuff is the toddler’s inability to express what they want. They know what they want, but they can’t tell you because they don’t know the words yet,” Pratt says. “He’s so vocal that it’s not that hard for him.”

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.”

Zoë Saldana Bumps Bellies with Galaxy Costar Chris Pratt

07/29/2014 at 02:00 PM ET

Zoë Saldana isn’t saying a word about her happy news — but with Chris Pratt by her side, she clearly doesn’t need to!

The Guardians of the Galaxy costars poked fun at the rampant pregnancy rumors during a stop at the New York Stock Exchange on Tuesday, posing sassily with their hands on their hips and their bellies jutting out.

The joke comes after Saldana, 36, emphasized her growing bump in tight dresses during the movie’s premiere and press tour. Though she hasn’t commented, sources confirm to PEOPLE that the actress is in fact expecting.

“She’s absolutely stunning and glowing,” one insider tells PEOPLE.

Chris Pratt‘s son Jack is learning a lot of new words, but there’s one that stands out for the actor: “Dada.”

“I do have video of him saying ‘dada’ when I come on the screen,” the Parks and Recreation actor, 34, told PEOPLE at the show’s PaleyFest panel on Tuesday. “He knows a lot of words, colors, numbers. He’s very advanced for his age.”

Continued Pratt, unable to resist a good joke: “He also can type 90 words a minute, which is really good for an 18-month-old!”

After spending five months in London last year to film Guardians of the Galaxy, Pratt had worried that Jack, his son with wife Anna Faris, wouldn’t remember him.

“He recognized me when I came home,” Pratt told PEOPLE in October. “I was worried that he wasn’t going to recognize me, but he recognized me from Skype.”
