Anna Faris Discusses Her Son Jack's Health Struggles

Anna Faris is opening up about her son Jack‘s premature birth and how it led to some health struggles for the little one.

The 41-year-old actress chatted with Jimmy Kimmel and his wife Molly McNearney on the latest episode of her podcast Unqualified. Their son Billy was born with some heart issues last year and has undergone multiple surgeries.

“When Jack was born two months early, it came as a huge shock,” Anna said. “And suddenly, your world completely shifts.”

Jack is Anna‘s five-year-old son with her ex-husband Chris Pratt.

“The doctors and nurses that helped us and surrounded us were so unbelievably supportive that it inspired Chris and I to get involved in [supporting the organization GAPPS],” she added.

Jack had a few surgeries — he had a few hernia surgeries, he’s had a few eye surgeries and he had a little heart issue as well,” Anna revealed.
