Chris Pratt, Anna Faris and their son Jack had the honor of giving a newly-born baby penguin at Woodland Park Zoo a name. In a video posted by the zoo on its YouTube channel on October 2, the adorable family gave the penguin a name related to what the couple loved in Washington state.
?Hi, Woodland Park Zoo. We are so honored that we have been chosen to name your newest penguin,? Faris said in the video. ?So, Jack has decided that we will name the baby penguin?? she continued while pointing at her son Jack. ?Eagle the Penguin,? Jack yelled, repeated by both Pratt and Faris.
Of why they named the baby penguin Eagle, Faris explained, ?Chris and I grew up in Washington state and we love bald eagles. And we thought that a penguin with aspiration to fly might be really fun.? Pratt then said, ?Happy birthday, Eagle.?
The ?Jurassic World? actor took to Facebook to share a link to the video. ?Anna and I grew up in the Pacific Northwest. I remember the awesome salmon and trout rivers, the bears, the elephants? Oh. Im talking of course about the @woodlandparkzoo !! If you haven?t had a chance to check it out you really must. It?s such a well run and gorgeous facility,? he wrote alongside the link.
Pratt then cheekily said, ?Who?d have thought that 15 some years later we?d meet in Hollywood, fall in love, get married, have a baby and that baby boy would be given the opportunity to NAME A PENGUIN CHICK a the zoo!? I mean come on!?
