Awwwwwww! Technology to the rescue!!
Chris Pratt is a new father — or rather, still feels like a new father, because he had to leave his very young baby boy at home to go work on a huge movie in London for the past 5 months!
That's a looooong time when your little one is in prime-time for building bonds with you!
So to make sure that his adorbz 14-month-old son, Jack, didn't forget his face and who his dada was, Chris used the power and technology of Skype to make sure they stayed connected! And when Chris finally got home from shooting Guardians of the Galaxy, well, we'll let Chris tell you what happened:
“I had a very special moment with him today. He recognized me when I came home. I was worried that he wasn’t going to recognize me, but he recognized me from Skype. He’s standing up, saying words and showing of. He has a real personality there. He just smiles for the camera — he’s like his mom and dad.”
Awww! Just melt us into a giant love puddle why don't you!!
Also, if you're wondering, being away that long really put a lot of pressure on his wife, Anna Faris, to do double the parental duty! So he rewarded her:
“The whole time I’ve been gone she had been taking care of the baby by herself so she needed time away. We had a really nice 18-hour romantic rendezvous."
Yep! We're definitely a big melted puddle of love right now!
Keep up the amazeballz work as parents, you guys! We bet Jack is SO GLAD to have you home, Chris!!
