Anna Faris, Chris Pratt welcome son

Snooki wasn't the only one with baby news this weekend - actors Anna Faris and Chris Pratt have also become first-time parents.

"Parks and Recreation" star Pratt tweeted the good news on Sunday night: "It's a boy! Thanks for all your kind words." Faris, who revealed her pregnancy in May, was reportedly due this fall.

A rep for the couple told People magazine that the couple's son, whom they've named Jack, "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."

And then there's the request from new dad Pratt: "In lieu of gifts we ask that you mouth kiss a stranger."

    I do agree with all the ideas you've offered on your post. They're really convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are too quick for novices. May you please extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.

  4. marriage or not..that is the question

    you don't have to be married to be committed. i believe in commitment loving and needing one another and just living quietly.
    is that so difficult? why would i want a marriage with no love. i'd rather be unmarried and wanted by my partner.

      Married by the church and seperated by the state....marriage is nice but its just a piece of paper that can give lawyers ammo in the court. Its all BS

    Off topic since these 2 are married, but to Ken and especially to special friend Dum Dum:


    adjective /kəˈmitid/ 
    committed, past tense
    1.Feeling dedication and loyalty to a cause, activity, or job; wholeheartedly dedicated

    People don't need to be married to be committed, and being married doesnt necessarily mean you're committed.

    I loved Chris Pratt in Everwood – to those of you who don't know him, too bad for you. They named him JACK? Not Moonfeather, Seychelles, Jumbotron, or Serendipity? GOOD FOR THEM.

      You forgot Apple, Pilot Inspektor, Blue, Kal-El, Moon Unit Zappa or Blade.

    Ken, a baby means a lot more to people than a bit of paper.

    if you can't stand each other you should leave each other....either find another hub or wife or girlfriend or boyfriend.
    living together ...not big deal...i want to be loved not live in misery and lose myself as a woman.

    To Ken who made the 1st comment, "Committed enough to have a baby. Not committed enough to get married." Even if they weren't married, it wouldn't necessarily mean they're not committed. My boyfriend and I are not married and have been together for 21 years. We have 2 children together. We've been in a relationship longer than any of our friends. So, are you saying that my friends who have been married, divorced, and married again are more committed?

      Why haven't you committed then? The obvious answer is that you or him want an out and that is a horrible environment to raise a child in. You are pathetic.

      For your delicate sensibilities, I'm sure they're sorry they didn't name their kid Mark, Paul, John, Steve, Brian, or some other conventional name like... AJ?

      Wait... AJ? Really? Who would name their kid an acronym?
