Gossip sleuths predicted these two would get engaged sometime in 2019. If you had “January 13” in the pool, then congrats!
And congrats to Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger as well!
After just 7 months of dating, Chris Pratt popped the question to Katherine Schwarzenegger on Sunday.
He announced the news on Instagram with a picture of the happy couple and a caption reading: “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!”
Katherine replied: “My sweet love. Wouldn’t want to live this life with anyone but you.”
The couple has been especially open about their shared faith, which is important to both of them. Chris revealed that he’s participating in a Bible-inspired “Daniel Fast” to get back in shape.
Chris presented Katherine with a simple yet stunning diamond solitaire ring. Jewelry experts estimate the center diamond is around 5 carats. Depending on the quality of the stone, we’re looking at up to $500,000!
Considering that Chris currently stars in not one but two major Hollywood franchises, we’re betting that price tag is at the top end of the spectrum.
The Guardians of the Galaxy actor reportedly asked permission from both of Katherine’s parents before popping the question. Considering who her dad is, that must have been an intimidating conversation.
Katherine’s dad is, of course, the one and only Arnold Schwarzenegger. Her mom is Maria Shriver, a journalist–and the niece of President John F. Kennedy.
With a political pedigree on both sides of the family, not to mention a famous last name, Katherine could have chosen to use her platform for just about anything.
She is the author of two self-help books and a lifestyle blogger who is passionate about animals, female entrepreneurship, and healthy home cooking.
This will be the first marriage for Katherine and the second for Chris, who split from his ex-wife Anna Faris in September of 2017. Chris and Anna share a young son, and the couple has reportedly kept things post-split amiable–and private–for the sake of their son.
Anna replied to Chris’s Insta-announcement with the message: “I’m so happy for you both!! Congratulations!”
It sounds like the exes are genuinely supportive of each other. Congrats again, Chris and Katherine!
