Los Angeles - Chris Pratt and Anna Faris felt "so honoured" to be asked to name a baby penguin.

The couple were asked by Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle to choose a moniker for the new addition to the facility and they and their little boy Jack, three, have announced the chick will be called Eagle.

In the video, Anna said: "We are so honoured that we have been chosen to name your newest penguin addition. Jack has decided we will name the penguin..."

Jack then shouted: "Eagle the penguin!"

After Chris, 36, spelled out the name, his 38-year-old wife went on to explain why they had chosen Eagle.

She said: "Eagle, Chris and I grew up in Washington State, we love bald eagles, and we thought a penguin with an aspiration to fly might be really fun and we can't wait to meet you."

The Jurassic World star shared the photo on his Facebook page and urged his fans to go and visit the "gorgeous" zoo.

He wrote: "Anna and I grew up in the Pacific Northwest. I remember the awesome salmon and trout rivers, the bears, the elephants... Oh. I'm talking of course about the Woodland Park Zoo. If you haven't had a chance to check it out you really must. It's such a well run and gorgeous facility.

"Who'd have thought that 15 some years later we'd meet in Hollywood, fall in love, get married, have a baby and that baby boy would be given the given the opportunity to NAME A PENGUIN CHICK at the zoo!? I mean come on! (sic)"
