Parenting your kids after a divorce or separation isn’t always easy, but Anna Faris and Chris Pratt give us awesome life goals on how to co-parent.
In a recent interview with divorce attorney Laura Wasser for her Divorce Sucks! podcast, Faris revealed her hopes for the future of co-parenting with ex Pratt. Despite Pratt’s engagement to Katherine Schwarzenegger and Faris’ relationship with photographer Micheal Barrett, the parents remain committed to keeping their six-year-old son Jack their number one priority.
“Grudge-holding is not something that Chris and I do. So, we wanted to make sure, of course, that Jack [their son] was happy, but that we were happy and supportive of each other and that we could have this fantasy idea of, do we all spend Christmas together? Do we all vacation together? How do we make sure that everybody that we love feels safe, and that we also respect the love we have for each other?” Faris said on the podcast.
Faris said her hope is that as Jack grows older they will “have group Thanksgiving dinners together and to be at that place.” Under the terms of their divorce, Pratt and Faris agreed to live within five miles of each other until Jack is in sixth grade so it’s definitely possible to make joint holidays happen.
Faris has also made it clear that she has no bitterness towards Pratt’s new fiancée and believes they are both great people. “Under all of these un-coupling circumstances, I think that we are so good and respectful toward each other,” Faris said. “I think there is so much kindness and love, and I know we want to get to that ultimate goal—and I know it sounds lame and optimistic—but that’s what I want.”
