Anna Faris poses poses during a ceremony honoring actor Chris Pratt with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Hollywood California

The 40-year-old actress only split from her husband Chris Pratt three months ago, but she's certainly wasting no time getting back out there on the dating scene as she's been enjoying a string of romantic dinners with Michael Barrett in Los Angeles.

Their boy was born prematurely, weighing just over 3 pounds and spending his first few weeks of life in the NICU (neonatal intensive-care unit). Faris had been on bed rest for about a week before going into labor.

In Unqualified, which is set to hit shelves on Tuesday, Faris wrote about the medical issues their newborn faced and the "emotionally exhausting" period after his birth.

Anna Faris and Chris Pratt shocked fans when they announced plans to separate after eight years of marriage, but their emotional statement made it clear that they continue to share a great amount of love and respect for each other.

"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", she wrote, according to People. "So Chris and I did what we could, which was hold hands and hope and face it together", adds the Mom star. "It felt like it was us against the world".

Anna said that during this time "I have to be as strong as I possibly can" and that she and Chris truly banded together.

"These moments can be hard on couples, but for us it really brought us together", she explained.

About a month later, Faris and Pratt, 38, got to take Jack home.

Anna wrote: "Today, Jack is at a handsome age".

One month later, Jack was released from hospital and Anna says that now, five years on, he is a "really good kid" who's "happy" and "likes cuddles".

Naturally, reports are already circulating that Pratt isn't thrilled about Faris' possible new relationship with Hollywood Life reporting according to a source close to Pratt, "Chris is having a hard time trying to figure out the timing of Anna's new relationship with Mike".
