Chris Pratt is making sure his kids Jack and Lyla will grow up with a strong bond. The proud dad shared a selfie of a cuddle session to his Instagram Story on April 29 and the pic is too cute.

Chris Pratt is on daddy duty!  The Jurassic World star, 41, posted a sweet photo of his two kids getting close on his social media page. It’s seems clear he’s encouraging a solid connection between the siblings.

Chris, who shares his son Jack, 8, with his first wife Anna Faris, welcomed his 8-month-old daughter Lyla in August 2020, with current wife Katherine Schwarzenegger. The Guardians of the Galaxy actor rarely shares photos of his kids, so the pic is a special treat for fans.

In the selfie, Chris is relaxing on a beige couch by the fireplace with his two little ones snuggled in close beside him. Lyla appears to be clutching a toy and is faced towards her big brother Jack, who was pictured in a red shirt with his back to the camera. The Parks and Rec alum captioned the post, “Baby time.”

Although Chris stares directly into the camera for the photo,  only the tops of his kids’ heads are shown because Chris and Katherine are determined to guard their kids’ privacy.

In fact, they have a policy not to show their faces, a decision that Katherine explained during an interview with the TODAY  show in March. “Obviously, I didn’t grow up with social media being a thing at all, so it’s a little bit different in that way just because I feel like we share so much in today’s world,” she explained. “But I think one of the greatest gifts that my parents [Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger] ever gave me and my siblings is the gift of privacy and having a really normal upbringing, or as normal of an upbringing as possible.”

In addition to protecting their kids’ privacy, Chris and Katherine have also made a big effort to make sure they are one big happy family with his ex Anna.  And luckily Anna is on the same page. She even sent a gift when baby Lyla was born. Anna couldn’t be happier that Jack’s now a big brother, a source told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY!

“Anna’s very excited for Jack to have a little sister. She’s very close to her older brother [Robert Faris], so she’s just thrilled that Jack will have a sibling,” the source said. “She’s been helping prepare Jack to be a big brother and he’s very proud.” The insider added that Jack was “so happy” after little sister Lyla was born. So sweet!

Ashley Cain and wife Safiyya Vorajee are heartbroken over the tragic death of their 8-month-old baby girl Azaylia.

Our hearts go out to Ashley Cain, 30, and his wife Safiyya Vorajee, 34. The couple confirmed the tragic news that their 8-month-old Azaylia Diamond sadly passed away after learning she had “days to live.” The baby was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of Leukemia in October at just two months old, and has been receiving chemotherapy. “Rest In Paradise Princess,” Ashley wrote on Instagram on April 25. “I will always hold you in my heart until I can hold you again in heaven.”

Safiyya also shared a tribute to social media. “You are my Angel my heartbeat my soul,” she wrote. “RIP my precious baby, you will always be with me like a handprint on my heart.” The news comes after The Challenge star confirmed that chemo “is not working” on Azaylia, and that cancerous tumors were found throughout the baby’s body. “They think she’s only got one, two days to live — and it could even be that night,” he wrote on April 9, alongside a photo of his baby playing with a ball despite being attached to medical equipment. “Her disease is that aggressive that nothing they are doing … is working,” he said, explaining they were unable to do a spinal tap surgery “would kill her.”

While Ashley and his wife had intended to take the baby to Singapore for further treatment, they were told the doctors there would also be unable to treat Azalyia given how advanced her cancer is. “So, that means we’re going back home. We’re going back home and we’re gonna try and make our baby as comfortable as possible,” Cain said. “We’re gonna be strong, and we’re gonna go out with honor,” he confirmed.

Days before Azaylia’s death, Safiyya shared that the couple had castings made of the little girl’s feet via Instagram story to forever remember her. Ashley held the baby as the mold’s were applied to her feet in the emotional moment. Safiyya also shared a sweet video of the mother-daughter duo dancing to The Jungle Book‘s “I Wanna Be Like You” as a celebration of her 8 month birthday. “We get up and I give my girl 100%,” Safiyaa wrote in her caption. “We keep her filled with the same energy & love that she’s used to,” and “I only ever want you to see happiness and experience love,” she said.

Ashley also wrote a sweet tribute for Azaylia’s birthday. “Yesterday Azaylia returned home from hospital like the fearless little lioness that she is,” he penned. “I honestly thought @therock was my hero until I spent the last 8 months with you. You taught me how to be strong when I needed strength, you taught me how to smile when I am feeling sad, you taught me how to cherish every single moment – as these moments are all we have. You’ve been tenacious, fearless, courageous, positive, happy and loving through times which I thought would make it impossible!” he wrote. “You’ve given me the best 8 months of my life through the toughest of times. MY HERO 🙌🏾 I LOVE YOU,” he concluded.
