"Hi, Woodland Park Zoo. We are so honored that we have been chosen to name your newest penguin addition, and so Jack has decided that we will name the baby penguin…" the 38-year-old actress begins to say in an adorable video posted to the zoo's YouTube page.
"EAGLE THE PENGUIN!" Jack yells, with a huge grin on his face.
"Chris and I grew up in Washington state, and we love bald eagles," Anna continues. "We thought that a penguin with aspiration to fly might be really fun. We cannot wait to meet you, Eagle!"

Chris later took to Twitter to share his family's excitement.
Chris couldn't stop gushing about his awesome fun-filled family day. The 36-year-old actor also shared a sweet post on his Facebook page.
"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 @woodlandparkzoo," he wrote. "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 opportunity to NAME A PENGUIN CHICK at the zoo!? I mean come on!"

Come on, indeed! The entire situation, and the adorably named penguin, is just too sweet.
The couple, who met on the set of Take Me Home Tonight and were married in 2009, were told that they needed to be prepared to raise a "special needs child" when Jack was born nine weeks premature. Luckily, Jack grew up to be a healthy boy and has no limitations outside of having to wear glasses.
Back in May, Chris shared another adorable moment with his son. Watch the video below to see the two recite the Pledge of Allegiance together.
