Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger have announced that they are engaged after just going public with their relationship one month ago.

Pratt took to Instagram back on Dec. 13, 2018, which was Schwarzenegger’s 29th birthday, to post a sweet message for his lady.

“Happy Birthday Chief! Your smile lights up the room. I’ve cherished our time together. Thrilled God put you in my life. Thankful for the laughs, kisses, talks, hikes, love and care,” he wrote alongside six candid photos.

Pratt’s public post to Schwarzenegger came almost a year and a half after he announced he had split from Anna Faris, who he was married to for eight years.

Although the newly-engaged couple only made things Instagram official last month, they’ve actually been dating for a while. Here’s how long the pair has been together.

When Pratt and Schwarzenegger were first spotted together

It was never really a secret that the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom star was dating the eldest daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver.

They were first spotted together back in June 2018 enjoying a picnic in Santa Barbara, California. While that outing appeared to be super casual and they didn’t engage in any PDA, the pics of them laughing and smiling together sent the internet into a frenzy and had everyone convinced something was going on between them.

Then, the following month, we got all the confirmation we needed when they were caught kissing following a church service in Los Angeles. At the time, a source told E! News that they were set up by Schwarzenegger’s mother, who was very happy about the relationship.

“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,” the insider shared.

When things got serious between them

As for when things got serious between them? Well, sources claimed that ever since they started seeing one another they had been almost inseparable and got to know each other’s families very well.

Schwarzenegger was spotted on out riding bikes, going to church, and grabbing ice cream with Pratt’s son, Jack, and the Guardians of the Galaxy star has been seen bonding with his girlfriend’s family as well. In fact, he and Katherine’s brother, Patrick, sat court-side for the Los Angeles Clippers game against the New York Knicks on Dec. 12, after they hung out together in LA earlier in the day.

It was also reported that Pratt spent the Thanksgiving holiday with Patrick, Katherine, and Shriver. They spent time with Katherine’s famous father a few days before that.

On Jan. 13, 2019, Pratt shared a picture via Instagram of him with Schwarzenegger after he proposed to her with the caption, “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!”
