Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger: A Timeline of Their Relationship

By Michael Jun 29, 2024

Chris Pratt’s divorce from Anna Faris broke fans’ hearts, but the Parks and Recreation alum found another shot at love with Katherine Schwarzenegger.

The couple started dating in 2018, one year after Pratt and Faris confirmed they were going their separate ways after eight years of marriage (the exes welcomed son Jack in 2012). In January 2019, Pratt announced that he and Schwarzenegger were engaged. The couple tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony in Montecito, California, just six months later.

Shortly after the Guardians of the Galaxy star exchanged vows with his new love, he chalked up their whirlwind romance to a lucky twist of fate. “We met at church,” he explained to Extra in July 2019. “It was a lot of kismet, and a lot of connections, but that was where we met.”

The pair went on to welcome daughters Lyla and Eloise in August 2020 and May 2022, respectively. In June 2024, People and TMZ reported that Schwarzenegger and Pratt were expecting their third baby.

Being prompted to talk about those things is also a really helpful thing to do early on. That I think helps us.”

In return, periodically, I open a jar of pickles. That’s the trade. Her heart is pure and it belongs to me. My greatest treasure right next to my Ken Griffey Jr Upper Deck Rookie card.
