Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger Announce Engagement
The couple is tying the knot after a whirlwind romance that began last June.
After a whirlwind romance, Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger are engaged to be married.
Pratt, 39, revealed that Schwarzenegger, 29, accepted his proposal on his Instagram. "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!" he wrote, captioning a picture of the couple kissing.
Pratt and Schwarzenegger, the daughter of actor-turned-politician Arnold Schwarzenegger and author-journalist Maria Shriver, first got together last June.
People reports that it was Shriver who introduced the couple.
Pratt was previously married to actress Anna Faris. They announced their separation in August 2017, after almost nine years of marriage, and their divorce was finalized in November last year. Pratt and Faris have one son together.
Faris weighed in on the engagement on her podcast, Anna Faris Is Unqualified. Calling Pratt "sweet Chris," she revealed, "I knew that it was going to happen. I love her, and I love him, and I'm just so happy that they found each other."
Faris even offered to officiate the wedding, replying to Pratt's text about the proposal with, "Just want to remind you, I'm an ordained minister," before joking she's "not very good at it."
