Last year, a source told US Weekly, “They are a great match… All of her friends love him. He’s so down-to-earth, stable and obsessed with Anna.” Speaking about Anna’s son, Jack, the insider added, “Michael is great with him and that’s all Anna cares about. They are doing so well.”
In early 2019, Faris was asked on the podcast, Divorce Sucks! if she saw “wedding bells” in the future with Barrett. Faris responded, “I will say I believe in love and monogamy and I believe in the commitment with a relationship. But I do struggle, having gone through it a couple of times now, Laura, with the idea of our legal system.”
Farris was married to Chris Pratt for eight years. They announced their divorce in August 2017. It was finalized in November 2018.
