Chris Pratt recently became engaged to Katherine Schwarzenegger – but the actor has gained just as much attention for his admirably amicable relationship with his ex-wife, Anna Faris.
The pair met in 2007, married in July 2009, and separated in 2017, finalising their divorce last year. They also have a 6-year-old son together, Jack.
However, the ex-husband-and-wife have an unusually friendly relationship.
In fact, Faris, 42, recently offered to officiate Pratt’s upcoming wedding to Schwarzenegger, pointing out that she is actually an ordained minister.
Speaking to INSIDER, Pratt, 39, revealed the secret to his healthy relationship with Faris – and he said it’s all about making sure they put their son first.
Pratt was speaking at the opening of a pop-up Lego cafe, the Coffee Chain, on London’s Southbank to celebrate the February 8 release of “The Lego Movie 2,” in which he plays Emmet.
When asked about how he maintains a friendly relationship with his ex, Pratt said: “Boy, that’s a good question.”
“It just happens naturally for us,” he continued.
“Kids first, it’s more important. Kids want to be in a loving household. Put them first, put your kids first. That’s the key I think.”
After saying that “of course” his son Jack plays with Lego, the dad spent a while happily chatting to and taking selfies with the children gathered by the cafe.
Pratt was joined by co-star Tiffany Haddish to serve Londoners the first coffees and hot chocolates from the cafe, which is made from 48,627 Lego bricks.
The cafe will be handing out free drinks to members of the public for two days (until 6 p.m. on Friday February 1 and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday February 2) at Observation Point, Southbank.
