Actor Chris Pratt revealed in a recent interview with People magazine that he and his wife, actress Anna Faris, went through an extremely difficult time when their son, Jack, was born nine weeks premature in August 2012 — an experience that he said restored and redefined his faith in God.

With their infant spending the first month of his life in intensive care, Pratt, 35, and Faris, 37, found themselves clinging to family, friends and prayer.

"We were scared for a long time. We prayed a lot," Pratt told People. "It restored my faith in God, not that it needed to be restored, but it really redefined it."

Pratt, who starred in "Parks and Recreation" and "Guardians of the Galaxy," said that he looks back at pictures of Jack that were taken at the time and realizes just how difficult the situation was.

"It must have been jarring for other people to come in and see him, but to us he was so beautiful and perfect," he added.

Pratt went on to say that Jack is entirely healthy and happy now as he approaches his second birthday, calling the child "amazing" and a "fighter."
