Famous actress Anna Faris has made a lot of revelations in her new memoir. The star also decided to talk about the health issues of her young son, Jack. Anna claimed that she was in shock when she found out about it. Jack is Anna’s son with estranged husband Chris Pratt. The former couple welcomed their son in August, 2012.
Anna revealed that Jack was born nine weeks early and remained in the hospital for a month. Before giving birth, Anna had been on bedrest for about a month. The star said that the period after Jack’s birth was “emotionally exhausting” for her and her husband.
“The pediatric neurosurgeon sat Chris and me down to tell us that Jack had some severe brain bleeding and there was a chance that he could be developmentally disabled,” Anna said according to People. “I was in complete shock… So Chris and I did what we could, which was hold hands and hope and face it together,” the famous actress went on to add.
The actress went on to say that doctors were not able to tell her and Chris if Jake was going to have special needs until he was around 18 months old. The Hollywood star said that things were not simple for her during that time, but she adopted the right attitude. “I have to be as strong as I possibly can … I have to,” she said she decided then.
Anna said that everything they went through back then brought her and Chris closer. “These moments can be hard on couples, but for us it really brought us together,” the star said. “It felt like it was us against the world,” she went on to add. Luckily for Anna and Chris, Jake is now a healthy little boy. He is only dealing with some small vision issues and leg muscle issues. Anna said he is a happy boy who likes cuddles.
This is not the first time when Anna has talked about this subject. She and her estranged husband also addressed this topic back in 2014.
