Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger tied the knot in June 2019, just a year after the couple announced their engagement in January of the same year. Pratt proposed to Schwarzenegger, the daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger, after less than a year of dating, with the couple keeping their relationship details relatively private. However, ever since the couple got together, many have been curious about how they met.
According to an anonymous source close to the couple, journalist and author Maria Shriver, Schwarzenegger’s mother, helped set Pratt and her daughter up. Shriver reportedly reached out to Pratt, who she had some mutual friends with, to suggest that he meet her daughter. The couple met at a church, but Pratt said they didn’t start dating until later.
Their union has proven to be a fruitful one, with the couple welcoming their first child together, a daughter named Lyla, in August 2020. They welcomed their second child together, a daughter named Eloise, in May 2022. Lyla and Eloise are siblings to Pratt’s son, Jack, from his previous marriage to Anna Faris. Despite their busy family lives, Pratt and Schwarzenegger are set to celebrate their fourth wedding anniversary this year.
In an appearance on “The Drew Barrymore Show” in April 2021, Pratt opened up about meeting Schwarzenegger. “I met Katherine, now it’s been five, maybe six years ago,” he said. “There was a moment in my life that I was really struggling and felt really broken. And yeah, it was like coming to, for me, my own journey, like finding a higher power and leaning on that and being like, ‘Please save me.’ And then feeling saved. And then shortly later, meeting the woman of my dreams.”
While Pratt and Schwarzenegger’s meeting may have been arranged by her mother, it’s clear that the couple has formed a strong bond off-screen. In 2018, the couple even went trick-or-treating with Faris and her husband Michael Barrett, showing that they have successfully integrated into each other’s lives.
Overall, while some may have been surprised by Pratt and Schwarzenegger’s swift engagement and marriage, it’s clear that the couple is still going strong. With two children and a fourth wedding anniversary on the horizon, their relationship seems to be a lasting one.
