Anna Faris & Chris Pratt welcomed son Jack Pratt on Saturday

Some celebrity pregnancies seem to drag on forever, with expectant celebrity moms seeming to gestate for what feels like a year and a half (case in point: doesn’t it feel like Gisele is due any minute now? She’s not.) Anna Faris was not one of those women. Anna and her husband Chris Pratt announced their first pregnancy in May, and Anna just gave birth yesterday. The baby came early – which Chris and Anna say in their statement. The baby was due “in the fall” according to their original pregnancy announcement, which makes me think the baby probably came more than a month early. So, the baby is in the NICU for now, but the fact that they released a statement already makes me think that everything will be fine and everybody is being taken care of. Anna gave birth to a boy – they’ve named him Jack!

It’s official: funny couple Anna Faris and Chris Pratt are parents!

The Dictator star, 35, and the Parks and Recreation actor, 33, welcomed a son, Jack, on Saturday, Faris’ rep tells Us Weekly.

“Anna Faris and Chris Pratt are happy to announce the birth of their beautiful baby boy Jack,” her rep says. “He arrived earlier than expected and will be spending some time in the NICU. The happy parents thank you for your warm wishes and ask that you honor their privacy during this time.”

Earlier this month, a source close to the couple told Us the pair is thrilled to be starting a family together. “They planned for this baby and now seemed as good of a time as ever,” the insider explained. “They really will be the best parents.”

A second source says Faris and Pratt, who wed in 2009, were “so excited” to become first-time parents. “Having a kid is a big deal to both of them — they didn’t take this lightly.”

Pratt, who shows off his musical skills as goofy MouseRat frontman Andy Dwyer on Parks and Rec, is also “excited to have a little guy to teach guitar,” the insider added. After his critically acclaimed performance in 2011′s Moneyball (opposite Brad Pitt), Pratt “has been into baseball again,” the insider revealed. “I’m sure he’s going to sign his son up.”

Congrats to Anna and Chris! I truly hope everything is fine with Anna and the baby, and that they can bring the little fella home soon. I really enjoyed how low-key her pregnancy was, but maybe I liked it so much because it felt so brief. And while I personally love the name Jack, it really feels like every other celebrity named their son Jack or Jackson. I imagine the kindergartens from here to 2020 will have at least of a third of all the boys being named Jack or Jackson. Or Pilot Inspektor.

    Jack Sprat could eat no fat; his wife could eat no lean.

    Congrats to Anna & Chris. :)

    Jack Pratt??? I am so glad my mother wasn’t a celebrity. Hopefully they will call him Jackson so he won’t get beat up on the playground like Apple Paltrow.

  5. Sickinbed says:

    Well, with the last name Pratt, let’s just be happy she didn’t call him Spencer.

  6. lucy2 says:

    Congrats to them! Hope everyone is doing well.

  7. Courtney says:

    congrats to the always loved the name jack. but they shouldn’t have announced the birth if they were gonna turn around and ask for privacy because he’s in the nicu

    She gets a chestbump from me for giving her baby a normal name. These days, it’s a rarity. Even “normal” names need to have a special touch. If you go normal, own it. They’re owning it.

    No chestbump for Faris her face though. I read she succumbed to botox and all that :( . I like her.

    I named my son Jack. It was not my first choice name because it does seem like many celebs and regular people are naming their sons Jack, Jackson or Jaxon. With a common name like Jennifer I didn’t want my child to have a popular name. Then the little one came and there was only one name to fit him- My Jack Wesley also came early. I wish Anna and Chris the best and pray that their joy is healthy and happy. Congrats!

    • Isa says:

      I didn’t name my children until after they were born. As a result I didn’t realize how popular their names were until people started asking and I told them, they would say, “oh my cousin’s uncles’s brother twice removed has a kid named that!”
      But thats the name that fits. If it bothers him he can go by his middle name, Fletcher. Not nearly as common.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Isa, I didn’t name mine until they were born either! :) And they were all named for meaning and boy, do their names ever fit them!

  10. Isa says:

    Congratulations to them! I had no idea she was pregnant. If she announced at 12 weeks in may I wonder what her due date would be?
    I really hope sweet Jack is fine and doing well. Time in the NICU sucks but they’re amazing.
    I have never heard of the rhyme mentioned above, maybe they havent either.

  11. rachel says:

    Ok- *deep breath*

    I think we all love them, so much, and they are so great, obviously, and we are so happy for them, and that is the take home message, so please forgive me for this- but he is wearing an unforgivable and unnecessary amount of makeup in that cover photo including foundation and blush. And while we are at it she could really cut down on the foundation as well. I thought she was the cutest girl EVER in the delightful and undersung guilty B rated pleasure that was Housebunny but lately she has had a subtle jacked/ pinched quality that is interfering with her natural beauty. This includes but is not limited to that horridly pallid green-white skin I have come to associate with excessive chemical peeling.

    So, I say, calm down you guys! you are pretty and talented and we love you just as you are. And of course, congratulations.

    I LOVE me some Anna Faris but I wish she would leave her face alone – she’s been looking positively WEIRD of late… injections or something? Also, would be nice if her hair could be a more natural looking blonde… not so platinum Anna, you’re a gorgeous girl!

    • rachel says:

      Emma we were posting the same thing at the same time– so validating. I am glad I am not the only one annoyed by the jacking.

  13. Marianne says:

    I love the name Jack…but not with the last name Pratt. All I can think of is that is that nursery rhyme now.

  14. the original bellaluna says:

    Congrats to one of my favourite movie dingbats & her hubby! I hope all is well, as she was not due yet.

  15. Mrs. Ari Gold says:

    I love her! She has immense talent and I wish someone would write her some good comic roles. They are such a cute couple! So happy for them and hope baby gets to go home soon!

  16. Onyx XV says:

    Had no idea she was even pregnant! How nice of her not to publicize the heck out of it like every other celebrity. I agree with posters above that it is an unfortunate name they chose for their son – not only does it evoke the nursery rhyme, but it just doesn’t sound that good with the last name. Oh well, not my problem!

  17. Jess says:

    “natural beauty”? Please explain to me why Anna Faris is famous. She is neither pretty nor talented. I have a Jack too, but I took his last name into consideration when I named him…. Guess she’s not smart either! Shocker.

    • Ari says:

      She is a comedian and hilarious. She was the only bright star in the first run of Scary Movie movies. Her last couple of rom-com flicks kinda sucked, and the Dictator was awful (through no fault of her own lol) but she is really seems genuine. Not sure where the vehemency is coming from. Congrats to her and her hubby.
