Anna Faris says it's been important to surround her son with love since she split from Chris Pratt.

The 'House Bunny' star's estranged husband filed for divorce last month after calling time on their relationship five months prior, and Anna has been talking about how she and the 'Jurassic Park' actor co-parent by bringing ''joy'' into five-year-old Jack's life and keeping friends and family close by.

The 41-year-old beauty told E! News: ''He's surrounded by so much love. We constantly reinforce what a great kid he is.

''I think the key is surrounding him with a lot of joy and happiness, which he has a ton of.

''I think it's those small moments in life, when your kid says something funny or like for me, I love what I do so I get a kick out of feeling like I nailed a joke well. And family and friends!''

According to legal documents, Anna's filing was identical to Chris', with both parties citing ''irreconcilable differences'' as the reason for their breakup.

In both papers, the date of separation for the former couple - who got married in July 2009 - was listed as July 13, 2017.

The pair are understood to be seeking joint legal and physical custody of their child.

A source previously said: ''They have a prenup. [In mirroring divorce documents,] they are both asking for joint custody of 5-year-old [son] Jack. We're told the property settlement agreement is almost completely worked out.''

Fans were hoping that the former couple would get back together, but hearts shattered across the world when Anna was spotted on a dinner date with her new boyfriend, cinematographer, Michael Barrett back in September.

The pair met on the set of her new movie 'Overboard' and have so far showed no desire to hide their new relationship from eagle-eyed fans and her ex-husband.

Anna split from Chris over summer but she is adamant they are still ''great friends''.

She said previously: ''We're great. He's amazing. We're great friends and we always will be. He was so kind to [write the foreword]. I decided to write a book about my life experiences and when I started, I thought, 'This will be a great journey. This is a great idea. I know what I'm doing. I'm 40, I can write a book.' [Then] it's like, 'No. What was I thinking? This is a terrible idea.'

''But what I like to think is the takeaway [is] that a lot of our problems tend to be universal - the idea of jealousy, loneliness, heartbreak. There's a commonality no matter what profession you're in or where you live and that's something the podcast has taught me. We all have the same stuff going on.''
