Anna Faris gets blunt about childbirth and how a 'sobbing' Chris Pratt helped

Having a baby may be a dream come true for new mothers, but labor and delivery? Well, sometimes that's the stuff of nightmares.

And it's also the stuff Olivia Munn wanted to know all about when she had the chance to ask actress and mom Anna Faris anything and everything about childbirth for Faris' "Unqualified" podcast.

In fact, when Munn asked Faris about the state of her body parts post birth ("because I have heard horror stories"), Faris didn't hold back.

"You finally understand what a 'pelvic floor' is," Faris explained. "It's the muscles that surround your vagina...They throb for like two weeks."

But there was one part of the process that eased her concerns about all of that — having husband Chris Pratt right there.

"What makes up for whatever is kind of happening down in your pelvic floor area is Chris’ face when Jack was being born — [it was] unforgettable," she said. "He was holding my hand and...he was just sobbing. I was scared he would be sort of turned off by the whole thing. That was amazing, seeing his face."

While Faris said she'd "love one more" child — and that she and husband Chris Pratt have long wanted a big family — she's uncertain if they'll expand their family now.

"I didn't love pregnancy," she added. "I was uncomfortable at times, and Jack came early...He came two months early, and I'm now in a high-risk category."

But if she does go through it all again, she'd be happy to have her super supportive partner by her side.

After she gave birth to their son, he kept repeating, "Oh my God, honey! You were so brave!"
