Chris Pratt and Anna Faris announced their split on Aug. 6, 2017.
“Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed,” Pratt said in the couple’s joint statement. “Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward.”
The statement added, “We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another.”
Though fans may have been heartbroken, life has continued for the two busy A-listers in the wake of the news. Especially for Pratt, who is continuing to work full speed ahead on his next blockbuster films.
But he’s also taking time to focus on his family in a big way.
Click through our slideshow to see all the key moves Pratt has made since he and Faris announced their legal separation.
He went on Ellen’s new show
Pratt made an appearance on the premiere episode of Ellen DeGeneres‘ new YouTube series Show Me More Show. During the segment, he answered some of DeGeneres’ burning questions, like “Your favorite pickup line?” and “Movie title that best describes your love life?”
He won a Teen Choice Award
Shortly after Pratt and Faris released the news of their split, Pratt attended the 2017 Teen Choice Awards and won the Choice Sci-Fi Movie Actor Award. He kept his thank you speech PC and light, “When I came to Los Angeles, I came from Hawaii, and I had all of this blond hair, and I was tan, and I met an agent because I really wanted to be an actor and get an agent, and he said, ‘Wow. Bro, you must surf?’ And I said ‘Yeah’ and that was the first of many lies I told to get where I am today. Thank you.”
He checked out a new church
Pratt is very openly religious and seems to have turned to his religion while dealing with his split from Faris. He was spotted recently at Hillsong Church in Los Angeles, which is a celebrity hotspot. Justin Bieber also reportedly attends church there.
He started lessons in co-parenting
People revealed Pratt and Faris were in couples therapy, not to mend their marriage, but to learn to co-parent their son, Jack, in the wake of their separation.
He took a ‘Hollywood Chris’ quiz… & failed
Pratt hilariously shared his results from his Hollywood Chris quiz, which told him he was most like Chris Evans. “Dude, I suck at quizzes,” Pratt captioned the photo.
He gushed about Faris
Pratt praised his ex for her appearance at the 2017 Emmys in which she presented with her Mom co-star Allison Janney. “I know she did great. Anna did an amazing job, man. She rules. Her and Allison, they both looked great. Go watch Mom on CBS.”
He helped auction items for a good cause
Pratt used his Twitter account to encourage fans to bid on Guardians of the Galaxy items that were being auctioned for charity. This MP3 player signed by director James Gunn and the cast went for $13,900.
He broke up with social media
Prior to his split announcement, Pratt was highly active on social media. He posted funny videos like his “What’s my snack,” Instagram series and shared photos of his father-son bonding time with his 4-year-old, Jack. But since his split, he hasn’t updated his Instagram at all and he’s only tweeted a handful of times.
He postponed the actual divorce
Again, the two aren’t reconciling. According to In Touch, Pratt and Faris made the decision not to make their split official because they didn’t want to have to pay for all the attorney fees that would go into making the separation legal.
