Chris Pratt Wants to Grow His Family and Have Another Child: ‘Let’s Go!’
By Movieguide® Staff
Actor Chris Pratt will add to his resume of Hollywood blockbusters with the movie THE TOMORROW WAR, but the ONWARD actor revealed to E! News that he is even more excited to add another child to the family with his wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger.
Pratt, 42, and Schwarzenegger welcomed their first child, daughter Lyla Maria, last summer. The outspoken Christian and conservative is ready to grow his family.
“We’ll do it. I’ll probably have to talk to Katherine about that but my plan is, let’s go,” Pratt said.
Pratt also shares an 8-year-old son, Jack, with his ex-wife, Anna Faris.
“I think having a second child really emphasizes what was unique about your first child because when you have one kid, you just take for granted all their growth and development. You just assume all children are that way,” Pratt said.
“The high common denominator is just kind of this unquenchable desire to want to be close to them, be next to them, to protect them and love them. It’s the best,” he added.
Pratt also noted that he and his wife have “a family party” planned to celebrate their daughter’s first birthday in August.
“The people who will be at the family party I see all the time so we’re just gonna celebrate [Lyla],” the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY ACTOR continued, joking: “It’ll be more about us than her because she’s not gonna really know what’s going on at 1 years old, but we’ll make it about her mom.”
Pratt is known for standing up for his faith and patriotic values in a generally hostile environment of Hollywood.
