We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed,” Pratt posted on his Facebook at the time. “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.”

“Anna is an important part of my life and she always will be,” he wrote. “She asked me to write this foreword. And I’m doing so because I love and respect her and told her I would.”
