Chris Pratt ‘cryed’ over reaction of praising ‘healthy’ child

Chris Pratt revealed that he “hyped” when he came under fire for praising his “healthy” daughter Layla in November 2021.

The 43-year-old actor reflected on the scandal in his July/August 2022 article on Men’s Health, published Tuesday.

“I said something” [on Instagram]like, ‘Find someone who looks at you like my wife, [Katherine Schwarzenegger], looks at me.’ And then I gave her some s–t in the thing and said, “But I love you. I am so grateful to my wife – she gave me a beautiful, healthy daughter,” Pratt recalled.

Social media users then criticized the “Guardians of the Galaxy” star, claiming that his post was “a dig at his ex-wife”, Anna Faris, as their 9-year-old son, Jack, was born prematurely.

“That’s twisted,” Pratt told the magazine of the criticism. “My son will read that one day. He’s 9. And it’s etched in digital stone. It really bothered me, dude. I cried about it.”

The “Parks and Recreation” alum, who shares daughters Layla, 1 and Eloise, 1 month, with Schwarzenegger, 32, called his “blessings” as a celebrity “a real burden…for those close to him.”

After Pratt’s social media upload made headlines last year, he told his Instagram followers that he was feeling “upset and depressed and…worthless”.

Pratt reflected on his “emotional” morning run at the time, saying, “If you’re not feeling well today, maybe get some exercise and maybe listen to some good worship music or play it because it really helped me this morning.”

Since the “Jurassic World” star has never spoken directly about the scandal before, he joked to Men’s Health that his publicist would “sweat” over his comments.

Pratt noted that Twitter’s response is not “real”, telling the publication that Jack “don’t know yet”.

The little one arrived in August 2012 and Faris, now 45, gave birth seven weeks before her due date. Jack spent a month in the NICU before going home.

“The early years were filled with doctor’s appointments, five surgeries, physical therapy, lots of laughter,” the “mother” alum, who divorced Pratt in August 2017, told People in May 2021. “Jack was and is the cutest cutest thing ever. I could ever have imagined.”
