No needs to worry

The Star Early Edition - - TONIGHT TELEVISION -

CHRIS Pratt and Anna Faris were “dev­as­tated” when they were told their son was likely to have spe­cial needs.

The cou­ple, who mar­ried in 2009, wel­comed son Jack into the world nine weeks early in Au­gust 2012 and were warned they would face chal­leng­ing times.

Anna said: “He was born at three pounds (1.36kg). And we were told, ‘Okay, you need to be pre­pared for rais­ing a spe­cial­needs child.’”

While the cou­ple ad­mit the news was “dev­as­tat­ing”, they were de­ter­mined to look on the pos­i­tive side.

Hap­pily, their lit­tle boy has no de­vel­op­ment prob­lems apart from hav­ing to wear glasses.
