Anna Faris "Didn’t Love Pregnancy" But Still Wants More Kids

On her podcast, actress Anna Faris speaks about wanting to grow her family

Despite only having one child with her husband Chris Pratt, Anna Faris has spoken candidly about her desire to have a big family.  

In a conversation with Olivia Munn, Faris opens up about why she hasn’t had anymore children yet. The two spoke in Faris’ podcast, Anna Faris is Unqualified.

“We both love kids, Chris and I have both dreamed about having a big family. But I didn’t love pregnancy…I was just bored. I was uncomfortable at times, and Jack came early,” she says. “He came two months early, so now I’m in a high-risk pregnancy category, but I would love to.” 

While the early pregnancy complicated things for the star of Mom, Faris and Pratt are mindful of increasing their brood while they’re still able to. “I wish we didn’t have this biological clock. I’m thinking we have to start talking about [having more kids], looking at all kinds of options.” 

Faris and Pratt welcomed their son, Jack, in August 2012. Their little 3-year-old is doing great now, despite his early arrival. Faris had to deliver Jack nine weeks early and adds that the pain following the birth was substantial, but Pratt’s face during the delivery made it worthwhile. “He was holding my hand and he was just sobbing. I was scared he would be turned off by the whole thing…that was amazing, seeing his face.”

Faris isn’t the only one who’s shared candidly about their relationship and love. Pratt spoke last June about the couple’s family being the main focus for him right now. But while family time is important, he shares that maintaining a relationship as husband and wife is just as vital. “It’s just as important, if not more important, to focus on your relationship with your partner because your children are going to leave one day [and] you have to maintain a relationship that’s going to outlast your child’s need for you,” says Pratt.
