It’s been a joyous week for Chris Pratt, 42, and his wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger, 32. The happy couple announced on social media in a joint statement on Sunday that they welcomed their second daughter into the world over the weekend.
Katherine posted a photo on Instagram of a grey background designed with a pink bow that says “Eloise Christina Schwarzenegger Pratt.” It also showed the date at the bottom, revealing that their baby arrived earth-side on Saturday.
The pair began dating in 2018, a year after Pratt and Faris announced their divorce after eight years of marriage (the couple welcomed son Jack in 2012). The Take Me Home Tonight actor and Schwarzenegger announced their engagement in January 2019. Six months later, the couple married in a beautiful ceremony in Montecito, California. Shortly after exchanging vows with his new love, the Guardians of the Galaxy star attributed their whirlwind romance to a lucky twist of fate. In July 2019, he revealed that the pair, “We met at church.”
Pratt later admitted that he felt “so grateful” to have found a lifelong partner in Schwarzenegger. During the interview, Arnold also revealed that Pratt had asked him for Katherine’s hand in marriage before proposing and that his son-in-law definitely has the Schwarzenegger stamp of approval.
Though the couple only started dating in the spring of 2018, they were obviously taking their future together seriously. In the same week they announced their engagement, the couple also reportedly moved in together in a house in West Los Angeles, close to where Pratt’s ex-wife Anna Faris lives with their 6-year-old son, Jack.
As their romance blossomed, the author of Rock What You’ve Got revealed how the two were able to maintain such a strong bond. During a virtual fireside chat in April 2020, she reported that she was a big fan of communication, and when she got married in June she maintained constant communication with her partner. The couple shares similar personalities and prefer not to go to bed angry; hence they dissolve any dispute before it turns into a big fight.
Less than a week after spilling her secrets about a happy marriage, Schwarzenegger and Pratt announced that they were expecting their first child together. In a Mother’s Day Instagram post in May, the “Dog Thаt Changed Me” podcast host admitted that she’d always wanted to be a mom “for as long as I can remember.” Her wish came true in August 2020 when she аnd Prаtt, welcomed their little bundle of joy.
