Following social media backlash, Maria Shriver is showing her support for son-in-law Chris Pratt.
Last week, the Guardians of the Galaxy star faced criticism online for an Instagram post dedicated to his wife of two years, Katherine Schwarzenegger. Referring to the couple’s 14-month-old daughter Lyla, in the caption, the actor thanked his wife for giving him a “gorgeous healthy daughter.” Many users deemed the comment insensitive to his ex-wife Anna Faris, as their 9-year-old son, Jack, faced health concerns after he was born seven weeks premature.
Amid the Instagram comments assessing the post, Maria chimed in with support for the actor over the weekend. “I want to remind you today what a good man you are,” Maria wrote. “What a great father you are to Jack and Lyla, what a great husband you are to Katherine, what a great son in law you are to me and what a great sense of humor you have!!”
“I love you, Chris,” Maria added. “Keep being your wonderful self, rise above the noise. Your kids love your family loves you your wife loves you what a beautiful life. I’m proud of you, xo.”
