Anna Faris + Chris Pratt Are Expecting, Child Will Begin Comedic Career in Womb
Anna Faris and Chris Pratt are expecting their first child together! Who wants to bet that the baby will be as hilarious as Mom and Dad?
You guys! Anna Faris and hubby Chris Pratt are expecting their first child! This is awesome—just think how hilarious that kid is going to be!
Anna’s rep confirmed the news to People last night, and (obviously) the happy couple couldn’t be more pleased. The comedienne extraordinaire and the Parks and Recreation star wed in 2009, but while they had always dreamed of having a large family, it proved a little more difficult to achieve than they had imagined. Why? Timing, mostly. The entertainment industry can be tough to fit in a family around.
But hoorah! Now the wait is over! The baby is due sometime in the fall—if Anna followed tradition and waited until the end of the first trimester was over to announce the news, I’m going to take a stab and estimate the date as sometime in late September or early October. We’ll see if I’m right when the time comes.
In the meantime, though, the parents-to-be have been keeping busy. The Dictator, in which Anna stars alongside Sacha Baron Cohen, opens next week; she’s also currently filming the upcoming rom-com I Give It a Year in London with Rose Byrne and Simon Baker. Chris, meanwhile, is shooting The Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow’s next film, Zero Dark Thirty with Jessica Chastain. Given the forthcoming child’s talented and hilarious parents, we’re predicting that he/she/it will begin his/her/its comedic career as early as the womb and will take the world on by storm on arrival. Just sayin’.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
