Fatherhood Friday Guarding the Galaxy

Today, we ride with Guardian of the Galaxy Chris Pratt, father of 2 year old son Jack and husband to actress Anna Farris. Jack was born nine weeks premature, and as a father of premature twins, I can relate to the helplessness and call on God to get you through.  Pratt recently had some cool words to say about his experience becoming a dad.  Also check him out in  “Guardians of the Galsxy,” recently released on DVD, a movie that really surprised me. I loved it.  Can’t wait to watch it with my son. #FatherhoodFriday #DadsRule

On seeing his son in NICU

“It restored my faith in God, not that it needed to be restored, but it really redefined it.”

“I’ve done all kinds of cool things as an actor: I’ve jumped out of helicopters and done some daring stunts and played baseball in a professional stadium, but none of it means anything compared to being somebody’s daddy.”

“I made promises in that moment about what kind of dad I wanted to be and I just prayed that he’d live long enough that I could keep them.”
