It’s hard to believe that Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger have only been dating for six months. The two made things official on social media recently when Pratt wished his girlfriend a happy birthday. Pratt posted the cutest picture in the world on social media with the caption, “Happy Birthday Chief! Your smile lights up the room. I’ve cherished our time together.” He continued, “Thrilled God put you in my life. Thankful for the laughs, kisses, talks, hikes, love and care." Fans were all over the post congratulating the two while others were generally upset for Anna Faris.
Judging by the pictures, we can see that the couple is a lot closer than we anticipated and are obviously a lot more serious, too.
Is it possible that Chris Pratt could propose soon? Possibly over the holidays? We can only hope. One thing is for sure, it’s pretty obvious that he has found love all over again with a woman who is beautiful on the inside as well as the outside. Check out these 20 things we know about Chris and Katherine's relationship.
20 That Moment Where Everything Was Official
These two are seriously one of the most beautiful couples in Hollywood and we are glad that they found each other. Probably a million hearts broke all over the world when Pratt was once again taken off the market, but he couldn’t have found a better person in Katherine who clearly adores him. Katherine is also the daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger so Pratt knows he better not cross the line! We can only hope that something special will happen over the holidays that will really seal the commitment between them.
19 She Has Met His Son
When you date someone who has kids, it can add another complicated level to the relationship. Pratt introduced his son to Katherine early on in the relationship, so he must've known she'd be around for a long time.
As MSN has reported, Katherine has spent time with Jack, Chris's son, a few times, and they seem to be getting along well.
18 They Actually Love Each Other
We weren’t sure if they were at that stage yet but judging by the post that Pratt made for Katherine’s birthday, they are definitely there. He knew how to make things official and she loved it. He said he loved her and when she responded to the message, she expressed her feelings too. She responded to the birthday post with, "😩😩😩 I love you ❤️❤️❤️" We hear wedding bells in the future, or at least we hope so because they make a super-cute couple.
17 They Met through Her Mother
Apparently, Chris and Katherine were introduced by Katherine’s mother, Maria Shriver. We wish our mothers would set us up with someone so dreamy!
“Maria helped set them up,” a source told People. Maria and Chris knew each other through mutual friends and it’s not surprising that she would want to set her up with such an accomplished gentleman.
16 His Brother Made Her A Wooden Tray
Katherine is clearly close to Chris's family because his brother made her a homemade gift. He had sent Chris on for his birthday and Chris posted a photo and the caption read, “So my brother, @cullypratt makes these awesome pocket dump trays. We all need a place to throw our wallets, keys, cell-phones, lighters, pistols or whatever else we keep in your pocket so you know exactly where it is the next day.”
15 They Wear Painted Face Masks Together
Even guys need to take care of their skin and it’s pretty obvious that Katherine takes care of her man. Another thing we noticed about their official social media post was the cute pictures of Chris and Katherine wearing painted face masks together. You know a guy really likes you when he’s willing to have a spa day at home with you.
14 They Have Met Each Other’s Family
As Town and Country states, they've met each other's families within months of their first date, so that's a good sign they're focusing on a long-term future together. A video went viral of Chris Pratt having dinner at Arnold Schwarzenegger’s home and we would have loved to have been a fly on the wall for that! For any action fan, meeting Arnold would be totally cool. Katherine also met Chris’s parents this year, so it’s pretty obvious that the relationship is serious already. We see Chris’s Brother, Cully Pratt, with his wife in this photo and everyone looks like they get along well.
13 They're Not Afraid Of A Little PDA
Even at the beginning, Pratt didn’t seem to shy away from showing affection for his new girlfriend in public and that proves how much they like each other.
"[Chris] was taking things slow with Katherine at first, but overall, he is not seeing anybody else and considers what he has with Katherine as exclusive," an insider told E! News. "He's not afraid to show his affection for her in public. Chris is doing things differently by not putting too much pressure on anything, but they are very happy so far."
12 Planning A Future Together
There is talk about moving in together and maybe even a proposal. We have to wonder if the holidays may play a part in that. The couple's planning to make the move "sometime in the near future" and Pratt sees "a very serious future with Katherine," a source has said, as reported by Elle. "They just love each other's company and it's not slowing down anytime soon."
11 They Are Both Christians
It really helps a relationship if you have the same religious or spiritual beliefs otherwise it can be something that you end up fighting over. But these two seem to be connected in a very spiritual way and often go to church together. Pratt recently talked about his beliefs at an awards show. "God is real. God loves you. God wants the best for you. Believe that. I do," Pratt said, as Christian Post reports. "Learn to pray. It's easy and it's so good for your soul." We love him even more now.
10 They Spend Almost Every Day Together
When Chris Pratt is not working, he likes to spend time with his son as well as Katherine. The two are rarely not together and that’s a sign that they are really serious.
“They seem to be getting more serious,” a source told People, as MSN reports. We have seen them on multiple dates over the past couple of months and they really do look like they are very much in love.
9 They Love to Spend Time With The Family
It’s great when you meet someone who has the same family values that you have. In the beginning of September, the two of them went to Round Pond Estate winery in Napa with Cully Pratt and his wife.
"Maria is very excited for Katherine. Everyone has their fingers crossed that this is going to work out long term. They think Chris is an amazing guy and a great catch," a source told E!. "They are really perfect together and have similar goals and values. They have gotten serious quickly."
8 He Checks Off All Her Boxes
It seems like everyone who knows the couple approves of Chris Pratt’s choice in Katherine. They have the same values and she’s really great with his son which is very important to him. “Family is very important to both of them, as well as their spirituality,” an insider told People. “She’s very, very sweet and maternal and great with his son.”
But that's not all, for Katherine she has finally met a guy that checks off all her boxes. She hasn't been in the spotlight before as much as she is now and she hasn't been this close to settling down either. "She really sees a future with Chris."
Friends are saying that the couple is definitely serious. "It’s only been a couple of months, but they’re both serious about the relationship and hopeful for the future," a source close to the couple told People. “Chris doesn’t just date to date, and neither does Katherine. She’s very excited.”
7 Anna Faris Approves Of Katherine
This year Chris Pratt took his son out for Halloween and he brought Katherine with him. Anna Faris was also with the couple, as well as her new boyfriend, Michael Barrett. It's really great that they all seem to be getting along.
“Along with Katherine and Michael, they all took Jack trick-or-treating in Pacific Palisades,” a source told People. “It seems they all get along really well. Everyone had a good time. They were making an effort to make sure Jack had a great Halloween.”
6 Friends Think They Are Going To Get Engaged Soon
Now that Chris Pratt is officially divorced from Anna Faris, he is free to marry Katherine if that’s what he wants to do. A source told People that an engagement is right around the corner.
“They’re such a great fit together,” the insider said, as Bustle reports. “It’s only been a few months but Chris and Katherine are both very serious about the relationship and their friends wouldn’t be surprised if they got engaged sooner rather than later.”
We wouldn’t be surprised, especially after the sweet post from Pratt on social media.
5 Chris Is Bonding With Her Brother
Recently we saw Chris Pratt at a Clippers game with Katherine’s brother, Patrick. He likely scored some major points by taking her brother out to a game. He’s obviously really close to her family and enjoys spending time with them.
“You can tell Chris knows Katherine’s family really well,” a source has said, as People reports. “Chris always seems very comfortable around her family. It’s like he is part of the family.” The two headed out in the evening in Los Angeles after the game.
4 They Get Each Other's Humor
The thing that we loved the most about Pratt’s recent social media post for Katherine is that we got to see candid photos that had never been seen before.If you are dating someone like Chris Pratt then you are likely laughing a lot. He's just one of those special guys who is not only really good looking but has a great sense of humor as well. When the couple tried out Bird scooters for the first time, they happened to pass soem paparazzi. Pratt joked to his girl, "It would be funny if we ate cement (sic) right now, right?"
3 They Have Nicknames For Each Other
We are just dying to know why Chris Pratt calls his girlfriend “Chief.” When a couple reaches the point of having cute nicknames for each other, things are really serious, and these pet names can also be a sign of a strong connection. The fact that Chris shared this nickname he has for Katherine with all their followers on social media is just a further sign of how official they are.
2 Beyond Comfortable Together
In the pictures they sent out to the world when becoming official, we saw Katherine in a robe sitting on the floor as she took care of Pratt’s feet. She was giving him a pedicure, as MSN reports. Aww, so adorable! It's clear that these two lovebirds really do care about each other because they're always doing such sweet things to show their love.
1 He Likes That She's Not An Actress
Chriss Pratt learned the hard way when it came to dating an actress. not that Anna Faris did anything wrong but sometimes when two actors are trying to juggle careers, wither one has to give up their dream or marriage can fail. We have seen it time and again in Hollywood. Katherine isn't in the industry and he likes that. She is more low-key, she works on a lifestyle blog and she's an author. He will never have to coordinate shooting schedules with Katherine.
"He really likes that she's not in the industry," one insider told E! News. "He likes the idea of dating somebody who isn't as heavy in entertainment."
