Chris Pratt thinks his little boy is “so smart”.

The 35-year-old is riding high in his career at the moment, having taken the lead in Guardians of the Galaxy and upcoming movie sequel Jurassic World. His personal life is idyllic too, with wife Anna Faris and their two-year-old son Jack and Chris wouldn’t want anything to change in his world right now.

“I don't pinch myself because when you pinch yourself, it's to see if you're dreaming and it'll wake you up," he said during an appearance on the Today show on Monday. "I wouldn't want anyone to pinch me right now, because if I did wake up, I'd be pretty p**sed."

Chris is right in the middle of promoting Jurassic World. But he has managed to fit in some quality family time and marvel at how his little boy is developing.

“He's so good, man," he told host Carson Daly. "Family life is great. We just spent a week in Hawaii, and yeah, he's so amazing. He's so smart."

Chris will soon start filming crime drama The Magnificent Seven and while he loves being busy, the former Parks and Recreations actor is doing his best to balance his role as a parent too.

“I think things are about to take off with promoting this movie and work so I'm just trying to really find a way to be present even when I'm not there," he continued. "I'm trying to balance it... I just wanna keep rolling and keep it going, keep it going."

Getting to star in the sequel to the classic 1993 movie is something that Chris still finds hard to believe.

“Being part of a movie that was essentially my Star Wars... it was like my first event movie, I saw it in the theaters, it blew my mind!" he confessed "I was 13 years old, so to be in that is crazy. It's just crazy."
