“I said something like ‘find someone who looks at you the way my wife looks at me’,” the Marvel actor recalled in the interview.
“Then I gave her some s— in the thing and said ‘but I love you. I’m so thankful for my wife—she gave me a beautiful, healthy daughter.’
“And then a bunch of articles came out and said ‘that’s so cringeworthy. I can’t believe Chris Pratt would thank her for a healthy daughter when his first child was born premature. That’s such a dig at his ex-wife.’
“And I’m like, that is f—ed up.
Pratt said his nine-year-old son would read the comments one day as they were “etched in digital stone”.
“It really f—ing bothered me, dude. I cried about it,” he said.
“I was like, I hate that these blessings in my life are—to the people close to me—a real burden.”
The Marvel actor was married to Anna Faris from 2009 to 2018 and the couple’s son, Jack, has a number of health issues.
At the time of his post, fans hit back at Pratt’s gushing message to his new wife, taking his words as a slight to his famous ex.
Pratt married Arnold Schwarzenegger’s daughter in June 2019 and the couple welcomed daughter Lyla in August 2020.
They announced the arrival of their second daughter, Eloise Christina Schwarzenegger Pratt, in May.
Faris let slip last July she’d secretly eloped with her third husband, cinematographer Michael Barrett, during the pandemic.
