It's not every day that a zoo asks you to pick the name for newborn animal.

Actors Chris Pratt and Anna Faris, along with their son, Jack, were in luck because they received a special invitation from the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, Washington, to name their 50th Humbolt penguin chick.

The zoo asked the famous family to do the honors because Pratt and Faris grew up in the Seattle area and are big fans of the place.

Video was posted on the zoo's YouTube page showing that the proud parents let Jack pick the baby penguin's name. He adorably announced his choice: Eagle.

Not only does the family love bald eagles, said Faris, but the name honors their local roots. "And we thought a penguin with the aspiration to fly might be really fun," she said.

Without missing a cue, Jack proudly and cutely says, "Happy birthday Eagle!"
