Chris Pratt: How Skype Helped My Son Remember Me
"I had a very special moment with him today. He recognized me when I came home," Pratt told PEOPLE
Chris Pratt was greeted by his 14-month-old son Jack‘s adorable face Wednesday morning after flying in at midnight from London, where he has been filming his latest movie Guardians of the Galaxy for the past five months.
“I had a very special moment with him today. He recognized me when I came home,” Pratt, 34, told PEOPLE at the Parks and Recreation 100th Episode Celebration on Wednesday.
“I was worried that he wasn’t going to recognize me, but he recognized me from Skype,” admits Pratt.
The Parks and Recreation star says his son is doing the cutest things now.
“He’s standing up, saying words and showing off,” says Pratt. “He has a real personality there. He just smiles for the camera — he’s like his mom and dad.”
While Pratt was overseas, his wife, Mom actress Anna Faris had to double-up in the parenting department. “The whole time I’ve been gone she had been taking care of the baby by herself so she needed time away,” he explains.
To gift Faris with some rest and relaxation, the couple had a very special mini-getaway in New York sans their little tot. “We had a really nice 18-hour romantic rendezvous,” shares Pratt.
