“My son’s gonna read that one day.”
OK, brief recap time. In November of last year, Chris made an IG post in tribute to his wife Katherine. At one point, he praised her for giving him “a gorgeous, healthy daughter.”
In a new interview with Men’s Health, the actor finally revealed how it felt to navigate the controversy.
“I said something like, ‘Find someone who looks at you the way my wife looks at me,'” he recalled on the initial post. “And then I gave her some shit 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 fucked up,” Chris continued. “My son’s gonna read that one day. He’s nine. And it’s etched in digital stone.”
Chris added that he cried about the fallout from the post, and that “It really fucking bothered me, dude.”
“I was like, I hate that these blessings in my life are — to the people close to me — a real burden.”
