Through thick and thin, Anna Faris and Chris Pratt have always been one of our favorite Hollywood couples. And, it turns out, they feel the same way about each other. The adorable, hilarious duo, who are parents to two-year-old son Jack, have gone through some rough times that strengthened their already-tight bond, Faris shared in Redbook's new March 2015 issue.

Speaking on their son's frightening premature birth in August 2012, Faris reflected on how the ordeal affected her relationship with her husband of five years. "It's one of those things that drives you apart or makes you closer," she said. "I think that being a father is very meaningful and rewarding to Chris. He's a great dad. He's a little more serious than he was before. It forces your hand. You really have to become an adult."

Though he plays a lovable dud on Parks and Recreation, it sounds like Pratt is a caring, mature father and husband in real life. And ripped, to boot. After years of bulking up and slimming down for roles in movies like Zero Dark Thirty and Her, he finally whipped his body into rock-hard shape for last summer's blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy.

Getting a fit husband wasn't all roses for Faris, though. "I just remember being grumpy because there was no food in the house. I love to cook really fattening things like steak and pasta and potatoes. I bake banana bread," she humorusly noted before adding, "But it's okay. I love Chris ripped and I love him a little rounder, too."
