Chris Pratt Calls Baby Eloise ‘Perfect’ as He Dishes on Life with a Newborn
Chris Pratt is ready to take audiences on another thrill ride with his new Prime Video series “The Terminal List.”
Pratt hit the premiere to celebrate the new show, just days after celebrating his 43rd birthday and first Father’s Day with baby girl Eloise.
“Extra’s” Jenn Lahmers caught up with Chris on the red carpet, where he shared, “I had a very special week, altogether. My birthday often falls on Father’s Day, so it’s really kind of a summer week to celebrate me… I kept it super low-key. We had some meals at home, I got to cook — I cooked a rack of lamb one night and some steaks the next. It was very special.”
Pratt and his wife Katherine Schwarzenegger just welcomed Eloise in May. He gushed over his daughter, “She’s perfect, she’s so gorgeous, she’s so chill, she sleeps a lot during the day. At night, not so much, so I am working on some caffeine fumes right now, but she’s perfect.”
Eloise is the latest to join the Pratt-Schwarzenegger brood, which also includes the couple’s daughter Lyla, 1, and Chris’ son Jack, 9, from his previous marriage to Anna Faris.
Based on the best-selling book, "The Terminal List" stars Chris as a Navy Seal with major PTSD after his entire platoon is killed in an ambush. The actor, who was joined by several real-life vets at the premiere, told Jenn, “They truly are the greatest generation… It’s an honor to be around them and be with them. You want to spend more time with them and hear their stories… and show them the love they deserve. Times have certainly changed, and they are the greatest generation for what they did for this country.”
The eight-episode series also stars Chris' brother-in-law Patrick Schwarzenegger. Jenn joked that he traded the role for babysitting duties. Chris smiling, saying, “Patrick, please do it please do it.” Getting serious, “So fun to have him on the show, he’s fantastic in it… He’s very vibrant and has a wonderful role.”
"The Terminal List" premieres July 1 on Prime Video.
