Chris Pratt allegedly was crushed over a comment he made previously about his “healthy daughter.”
This past November, Pratt faced massive backlash after posting a “just because” tribute to his wife Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt on Instagram.
Chris Pratt Allegedly Bawled Over The Backlash to His ‘Healthy Daughter’ Comment
Paired with a photo, the actor, 43, wrote in part, “She’s given me an amazing life, a gorgeous healthy daughter, she chews so loudly that sometimes I put in my earbuds to drown it out, but that’s love!”
However, many fans and followers found issue with the “healthy daughter” comment, saying it was insensitive toward his ex-wife, Anna Faris, with whom he shares 9½-year-old son Jack. Their son was born two months premature and experienced numerous health issues in the aftermath of his birth.
In a recent interview with Men’s Health, Chris addressed the backlash he received for the first time, sharing that he “cried” and was extremely “bothered” by the situation.
“I said something like, ‘Find someone who looks at you the way my wife looks at me.’ And then I gave her some s— in the thing and said, ‘But I love you. I’m so thankful for my wife — she gave me a beautiful, healthy daughter,'” he explained. “And then a bunch of articles came out and said, ‘That’s so cringeworthy. I can’t believe Chris Pratt would thank her for a healthy daughter when his first child was born prematurely. That’s such a dig at his ex-wife.'”
“I’m like, That is f—d up. My son’s gonna read that one day. He’s 9. And it’s etched in digital stone. It really f—ing bothered me, dude. I cried about it. I was like, I hate that these blessings in my life are — to the people close to me — a real burden.”
While on the red carpet for his new movie The Terminal List just last week, Pratt praised Jack for doing a “great job as a big brother” to daughters Eloise Christina and Lyla Maria, 22 months.
“There’s a big age separation… [and] he does a great job, he’s so sweet with them,” Pratt told Entertainment Tonight. “And they love him so much and they miss him when he’s gone.”
And just last week, Schwarzenegger Pratt posted a sweet birthday post praising the actor as a husband and father on his birthday.
“Birthday Boy!” she wrote in her caption. “Happy birthday to you! We love you so much! I feel like the luckiest in the world to live life with you.”
“You’re the most loving father, the most supportive partner and you have the biggest heart and we are so blessed to feel and witness your love,” the author added. “Happy happy handsome.”
