One of Hollywood's busiest men is about to go on a well-deserved holiday—and for a very important reason.

After shooting The Magnificent Seven (out Friday), Passengers (SEXY SPACE TRAILER ALERT), and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (#weareGroot), Chris Pratt is taking on the role of a lifetime: Mr. Anna Faris and dad to 2-year-old Jack.

"I've been on the road for 14 months—I did three movies back to back to back—so I'm taking six months off," he said in an interview with Parade. "I'm taking Jack to Jack's Beach—which is what we named the little stretch of beach on an island up on the San Juan Islands where we got a place. We're going to go back to the fort we built about a month and a half ago when we went for a short visit and see if that's still there. If not, we're going to build it again."

The film industry to Chris Pratt right now: 'Take all time you need, bud. Take all the time you need." ::we all tear up::
