The family celebrated Pratt’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame back in April, with Pratt telling the crowd:

“I want to thank my wife Anna, I love you. You’ve given me so much. You gave me the greatest star in the galaxy in my little boy, I love him and I love you. We have bonded to make this molecule that is more important to me than air or water, and without it, none of this means anything to me. With every challenge, with every day, week, month, decade, we become more bonded. You make me laugh like nobody else. You’re very caring and thank you for your trust and your sacrifice – and for your dedication and your heart. I will do my best to protect it, and in return, I will give you all of those things as well. You have my heart, my dedication, my trust.”

Faris opened up about their marriage in a podcast interview with Isla Fisher in December 2016, and admitted that they “grappled with a lot of the ideas of being a public couple.”
