Chris Pratt Nails Most Parents’ Sleeping Struggles: ‘I Was Just Awakened By A Square Kick To The Back’

It seems Chris Pratt and his wife Anna Faris experience the same sleeping problems that many of us face some nights!

‘Now I Can’t Sleep’

Taking to Instagram last week, the 37-year-old actor shared a snap of himself with his wife in Tokyo to promote his movie Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

“Thank you for the support honey! You look so beautiful,” he revealed. “These press tours can be such a whirlwind. I’m grateful to have you and the boy with me on this one.”

‘Little Man Must Have Had A Karate Dream’

But Chris admitted that the reason he was posting the snap in the middle of the night was because his four-year-old son Jack had woke him up!

“Although it’s 3:00am right now,” he added. “I was just awakened by a square kick to the back as little man climbed into bed and then must have had a karate dream or something and now I can’t sleep.

“I’m on Insta instead. All you dads and moms know what I’m talking about (sic).”

We know, Chris! We KNOW!

Here is Anna on Mother’s Day with our twin sons Jack and T-Rex. Even now it’s hard to tell them apart some times.

Meanwhile, do you remember that time when Chris showed us just what an adorable dad he is by trying – and failing – to make his son a Donald Duck pancake?

When he asked his son: “Jack, what do you think about your Donald Duck pancake?”

Jack replied: “It doesn’t look like Donald Duck… Daddy look at it! He doesn’t have a tail.”

You can come over and make pancakes for us ANY time, Chris! No matter how they turn out! We won’t complain… promise!
