When photos emerged last week of Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger on a picnic, most people assumed that this was their first official date. But actually, it appear the stars have been hanging out for longer than we initially thought.

According to a new report from E! News, while Pratt and Schwarzenegger’s relationship is still fairly casual, they’ve been on several dates at this point and have been chatting since around April.

“It’s still very new between Chris and Katherine but the picnic was not their first date,” a source told E! News. “They have been on multiple low key dates and have been talking consistently for the last two months or so.”Evidently, they’re getting along quite well. The source also told E! that Pratt is “smitten” with Schwarzenegger and he’s happy with how things are going so far. Also, this source confirmed something that had been previously reported by other outlets: that the two met through Katherine’s mother, Maria, who Chris knows through some mutual friends.

It was on June 18th that pictures of Pratt and Katherine on a picnic emerged. This was the first time we received any indication at all that they were a couple, although the photos technically didn’t prove that; in the whopping 46 pictures that TMZ published, they’re never seen embracing or holding hands.

Still, these photos were followed by reports that this was, in fact, a date, and that it wasn’t their first. PEOPLE recently reported that the two have been on “multiple dates” at this point, although the source stressed that it’s all very new.

Katherine Schwarzenegger is the 28-year-old daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver. She has published several books, the first of which is about developing a positive self-image, the second of which is about advice for recent college graduates, and the third of which is a children’s book about animal adoption. She also runs an Instagram page on which she promotes beauty products.

It has been 10 months now since Chris Pratt and Anna Faris announced that they would be separating. This reportedly had to do with tensions that arose as a result of Pratt being on the road so much as his movie career blows up and Faris wanting a more traditional family lifestyle. They officially filed for divorce in December.

“Divorce sucks,” Pratt later told Entertainment Weekly. “But at the end of the day, we’ve got a great kid who’s got two parents who love him very much.”

It sounds like there have been no hard feelings between the two. In May, Faris described her current relationship with Pratt by saying, “We had an unbelievable marriage and we have a great friendship now, we love our son to death. I’m really proud of that.”

Faris has since moved on with a new boyfriend, Michael Barrett. He’s a cinematographer who she met while working on the film Overboard. They have reportedly been dating since early September 2017, and Faris’ friends, including her co-star Allison Janney, approve of him.
