Chris Pratt fans are riding high on a feeling of amore as it was announced Monday that he proposed to his girlfriend Katherine Schwarzenegger—and she said yes!! The announcement was made by Pratt himself in a post on his Instagram account. Pratt, star of the Jurassic World movie franchise, and Schwarzenegger decided to tie the knot after what was said to be a whirlwind romance, as if right out of a Hollywood movie.
Having first been seen together in June 2018, their romance wasn’t officially confirmed by either party until last month. This is when Pratt posted a happy birthday message on Instagram to the daughter of Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The couple spent the past summer together and enjoyed a lot of quality time with Pratt’s 6-year-old son from his first marriage to actress Anna Faris.
The couple has been on more than one occasion photographed as they attend church together, and are both very open about their Christianity and the role it plays in both their lives. Pratt seems to have, form all accounts, become close to other family members of his new fiancé, having been seen with her father Arnold, her mother Maria, and even her brother Patrick on multiple occasions.
In his Monday Instagram post, the now engaged couple can be seen snuggling up to each other, with Katherine’s massive engagement ring in full view. Pratt captioned the picture:
“Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes! I’m thrilled to be marrying you. Proud to live boldly in faith with you. Here we go!”
Pratt had just finished helping Schwarzenegger move from her Santa Monica, California home on Friday before the announcement. The duo was first sighted around Father’s Day in Santa Barbara, where they enjoyed a picnic in the park together. After that, they were regularly spotted on what appeared to be several dates around Los Angeles, as well as family type outings with Pratt’s son Jack in tow.
It seems that things heated up very quickly between the couple, having only been introduced by Katherine’s mother, Maria, in June of last year. According to People Magazine, a source that is close to the couple stated:
“They’re both serious about the relationship and hopeful for the future. Chris doesn’t just date to date, and neither does Katherine. She’s very excited.”
The source went on to say that the Pratt and Schwarzenegger appear to indeed be very happy together, and seem to be very compatible and appear to have a lot in common, with their faith and Christianity being the most noticeable.
Pratt announced his separation from former wife Anna Faris in August 2017, ending what was almost nine years of marriage. This is the first known relationship Pratt has been involved in since that divorce.
Will Pratt find everlasting love the second time around?
