Chris Pratt and Anna Faris now have a baby boy

Snooki isn’t the only celebrity currently adjusting to new parenthood.

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris also welcomed their first child into the world recently, People magazine confirmed over the weekend. The couple had a baby boy named Jack. The birth was more meaningful to Celebritology than the usual celeb offspring arrival since Pratt was clearly so excited about becoming a dad when he spoke about it during his Washington, D.C. visit last month.

The baby, who was due in October, came a bit earlier than expected; Faris’s rep told People he “will be spending some time in the NICU.”

Hopefully all is well with the little one. Given the tone of Pratt’s birth-announcement tweet, it seems to be.

Jokey tweets aside, Pratt seemed to be taking fatherhood very seriously when he discussed it last month.

“I see these people who are grandparents like my mother- and father-in-law or my mom and dad,” he said. “They’ve got all of this life around them that sprouted from them. That is a huge source of their happiness. It’s an investment — you give up the spontaneity and the ability to go travel the world on a moment’s notice or stay out late and have fun and be wild and irresponsible. That’s all fun stuff. I love doing that stuff. But I’m willing to give that up if it means that the third of my life will be filled with all the life and love that comes with [family].”

Welcome to the world, mini Andy Dwyer.
