  • Chris Pratt praised Katherine Schwarzenegger for giving him a "healthy daughter" on Instagram.
  • In response, his ex-wife Anna Faris' name trended on Twitter.
  • Because the former couple's son has had health challenges, many considered Pratt's post insensitive.

Anna Faris' name trended online Thursday evening in response to her ex-husband Chris Pratt's recent Instagram tribute to his new wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger.

This week, Pratt shared an early-birthday appreciation post for Schwarzenegger, an author he married after about a year of dating in 2019. The pair welcomed their first daughter, Lyla Maria, the following year.

"She's given me an amazing life, a gorgeous healthy daughter, she chews so loudly that sometimes i put in my ear buds to drown it out, but that's love!" the "Guardians of the Galaxy" actor wrote in the caption of his post.

Before Pratt began his relationship with Schwarzenegger, he was married to Faris for eight years. They divorced in 2018 and continued to co-parent their 9-year-old son, Jack. The exes now share joint legal and physical custody.

When Faris and Pratt welcomed Jack in 2012, the newborn suffered a cerebral hemorrhage after being born nine weeks early. He spent nearly a month in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

"The pediatric neurosurgeon sat Chris and me down to tell us that Jack had some severe brain bleeding and there was a chance that he could be developmentally disabled," Faris wrote about her son's birth in her 2017 memoir "Unqualified."

Pratt and Faris later learned that the hemorrhage did not cause major permanent damage and resulted in slight vision impairments and a non-life-threatening heart problem, Buzzfeed News reported.

Pratt's recent message about Schwarzenegger giving him a "healthy daughter" seemed inconsiderate to some of Faris' fans, given Jack's past health struggles.

Shortly after the actor shared the post on Instagram, Faris' name trended on Twitter, with many fans offering words of support for the "Scary Movie" actress.

Others showed their appreciation for Faris by reminiscing about her iconic film and TV roles, including the "Scary Movie" film franchise, the 2008 romantic comedy "House Bunny," and the CBS comedy series "Mom."

Some joked that Faris should replace Pratt in his starring roles in well-known franchises, including the "Jurassic World" film series.

When ANYBODY has a baby they ALWAYS say we're SO glad she/he is a "healthy baby"!!! Chris wasn't trying to infer that ANNA gave him an unhealthy baby. People will take anybody's words and twist them to THEIR interpretation!!! Stop it already!!! 🙄😬🥴
