SEATTLE — Actor and Lake Stevens native Chris Pratt has opened up about his son’s premature birth while sharing his experience visiting a children’s hospital.
Pratt posted photos on Instagram from his visit Monday to Seattle Children’s Hospital. He showed off a picture of him with a set of premature twins. He writes that ever since his son Jack’s birth, he has “a special affinity for the NICU (neo-natal intensive care unit).”
Pratt’s wife, actress Anna Faris, gave birth to Jack in August 2012.
Pratt also shared pictures of him with a cancer patient and another child at the hospital. He thanked the facility for “the opportunity to come by and brighten some days,” adding, “My heart is full.”
Pratt has appeared in the TV series “Parks and Recreation” and the film “Guardians of the Galaxy.”
Ever since Jack's premature birth, we have a special affinity for the NICU (neo-natal intensive care unit) Today I spent a little time with Coen and Zion, twins who were born too early only a pound and a half each. Thank you to the doctors and nurses at @seattlechildrens The boys are doing fine. Although they're both missing their big sis.
