In Pratt’s adoring post to his wife, he thanked her for giving him “a gorgeous healthy daughter.”

“Find you somebody that looks at you like that!! You know!? We met in church. She’s given me an amazing life, a gorgeous healthy daughter, she chews so loudly that sometimes I put in my earbuds to drown it out, but that’s love!” he wrote.

However, many think that his choice of words are insensitive to Faris and their son, nine-year-old, Jack.

Jack, was born 9 weeks premature and Faris has previously revealed that their son weighed just 3 pounds and twelve ounces at birth, The Independent reports.

Jack also spent the first month in the NICU.

BuzzFeed added that Faris opened up about Jack’s birth in her memoir, Unqualified.

“The pediatric neurosurgeon sat Chris and me down to tell us that Jack had some severe brain bleeding and there was a chance that he could be developmentally disabled,” she wrote.
