Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are over. And hearts all over the world are breaking – ours included.
The two, who have been married for eight years and have a son, four-year-old Jack, announced on social media Sunday evening that they are legally separating.
On Anna’s Instagram, she wrote: “We are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still love each other and will always cherish our time together. – Anna Faris and Chris Pratt”
Chris posted a similar statement on his Facebook account: “Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another. Chris Pratt and Anna Faris”
Chris, 38, and Anna, 40, met in 2007 during filming for their movie Take Me Home Tonight – and from the time they officially got together, they’ve been total #couplegoals: From their quirky-sweet social media posts and the glimpses they share of their adorable relationship; supporting each other and rockin’ the red carpet together; their mutual love for good whisky and dead bugs; Chris not just braiding, but French-braiding Anna’s hair before they go to sleep; growing up just 20 minutes from each other, both having parents with MS, and both having scars on their left hands; to Chris saying he knew from the start that Anna was The One, and that their relationship has made him believe in “divine intervention and destiny.”
It’s all of this, and so much more, that made us all fall in love with this couple who just genuinely seemed to adore each other and have fun together – and why news of their separation has made the internet declare that ‘love is dead’.
