Chris Pratt and Anna Faris were our relationship goals for the better part of a decade. Ever since their wedding in 2009, fans enjoyed vicariously experiencing the adorable ride that was their relationship, since neither of the actors were shy in highlighting their love through interviews and social media interactions.
Sadly, the couple have announced they are separating after eight years of marriage. The celebrities shared the sad news through joint statements on Sunday, August 6, with the Guardians of the Galaxy star posting it on his official Facebook page, and #AnnaFaris on her Instagram page:
In the statement, the actors explained the situation, and urged their fans to help them keep the matter as private as possible for the sake of their four-year-old son, Jack:
"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."
Understandably so, the announcement was a hard blow for their social media followers. Multiple people have taken to the internet to share their deep sadness over this news.
Divorces are a difficult situation, especially when there are children involved, so it's great to hear that #ChrisPratt and Faris are making the effort to part ways in good terms. Hopefully they manage to resolve this matter as peacefully as possible.
