The couple announced their engagement in 2019 and tied the knot five months later, before welcoming their first child, Lyla Marie, in August 2020.

Pratt also has a 9-year-old son named Jack from his previous relationship with Anna Faris, with whom he shares co-parenting duties.

Last year, Pratt said that “would love to have more [kids,] as many as the Man upstairs will provide “.

“I think having a second child really emphasizes what was unique about your first child because when you have one kid, you just take for granted all their growth and development. You just assume all children are that way,” he said at the time.

“And then you see a second kid come along and they might be a little bit different and they might highlight some of the differences. And so that’s been nice.

“My oldest is a son and now I have a girl so seeing that is different, how I react maybe a little differently, I do not roughhouse quite as much as I did for some reason, I do not know. I just want to cuddle both of them. “

Eloise’s birth is good timing for Pratt, as he’s just finished filming on the third Guardians film, meaning he’s got plenty of time to spend with family (promotion for Jurassic World and his Amazon series The Terminal List aside).

Pratt will next be appearing in the MCU as Peter Quill / Star-Lord in Thor: Love and Thunderwhich will be released on July 8.
