When actress Anna Faris's water broke in the middle of the night two years ago, she couldn't believe it. "I was having an uneventful, happy pregnancy," the now 38-year-old mom told Health magazine in the April 2015 issue. While she has been fairly quiet about her high-risk pregnancy, she's now opening up more about her experience, how 2-year-old Jack is doing now, and her marriage with her hunky hubby, Chris Pratt.

Why She's Talking

When he was born, Jack only weighed 3 pounds, 12 ounces, but Faris says he is doing so well that now she feels comfortable talking about his scary month-long stint in NICU. In December of 2014, Pratt gave an emotional speech at the March of Dimes Luncheon saying, "Our Jack went from a small, helpless little squirt to a strong, smart, happy, funny, beautiful boy who loves monster trucks and 'Daniel Tiger,' and, believe it or not, loves vegetables."

On Her Marriage

Having a premature child has brought Faris closer to her Guardians of the Galaxy star husband. Even when she's taking care of a toddler, he still finds her sexy. In her interview with Health, she gushed, "He makes me feel really beautiful even when I'm feeling disgusting. I'll be in boxer shorts and a grubby t-shirt with greasy hair, and he'll still be like, 'Whoa, honey. Whoaaa."

But Jack has added to their happy marriage and chemistry, especially when they have the chance to spend time together, just the three of them. "Chris and I took Jack to the train museum. There were paparazzi, but we were just like, 'It's an odd thing that's happening, but let's not stress or stress Jack out," she said. "At one point, Christ turned to me and said, 'I don't think I've ever been happier in my whole life.' And I felt the same way."

On Having More Kids

Faris says she "very much so" wants more kids, but now that she's getting closer to 40, she knows her pregnancy will be even higher-risk. "I wish we didn't have this biological clock. I'm thinking we have to start talking about it, looking at all kinds of options."

For now, Faris and Pratt are working out together to stay fit, even if comes with some mild arguments—"He has me do lunges and stuff, and the lunges get hard after a while. It's really frustrating when someone you love is telling you how to improve your form!" And if they have more kids, they'll be happy, but Faris says in her downtime, she most looks forward to some wine and movies and spending time with her two leading men.
