The two got engaged in 2008 and eventually tied the knot on July 9, 2009. Their son, Jack, now 4, was born in August 2012. On April 10 this year, Pratt shared a message about how much he loved Faris after she joined him for his press tour for 'Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2'. "These press tours can be such a whirlwind. I'm grateful to have you and the boy with me on this one. Although it's 3:00am right now, I was just awakened by a square kick to the back as little man climbed into bed and then must have had a karate dream or something and now I can't sleep. I'm on insta instead. All you dads and moms know what I'm talking about." Faris recently told People magazine that she and Pratt were a "normal" couple, saying that he "loves to work in the garage, and I love to do laundry and watch reality television, just normal people."(ANI)
