Rumors about a romance between Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger swirled for more than a month until the pair seemed to make things official by showing some PDA during an outing together. Here’s what we know about their relationship and the biggest sign that things are getting serious.

TMZ reported that the two were spotted sharing a kiss in late July following a church service in Los Angeles. They then stopped to grab some ice cream. What made this outing interesting is that they were joined by the Pratt’s son, Jack.

“That was a big step for Chris,” an insider told ET. “Until he knew it was more than just casual, he wasn’t introducing Jack to anyone.”

The source added that the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom star and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s eldest daughter have “gotten serious quickly,” already “introduced one another to their family and friends, and have been almost inseparable when they are free.”

Pratt and Schwarzenegger were first seen out on June 17 enjoying a picnic in Santa Barbara, California. During that date, the pair didn’t engage in any PDA but the pics of them together and the fact that they were all smiles, set the internet into a frenzy.

Schwarzenegger is the first woman the actor has been spotted on dates with since he and Anna Faris announced their decision to separate in August 2017.

“We are sad to announce we are legally separating,” the statements posted on their social media accounts read.  “We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still love each other and will always cherish our time together.”

Faris began dating cinematographer Michael Barrett a few months after announcing the news. Pratt was then linked to his co-stars, Jennifer Lawrence and Olivia Munn. However, the ladies shut down those rumors.

Lawrence did so in an interview with KISS FM saying, “I never had an affair with Chris Pratt on Passengers. I mean they got a divorce like two years later and everybody was like Jennifer Lawrence! And I was like what the … what I’m in Montreal two years later.”

Munn meanwhile, actually contacted Faris to set the record straight and shared screenshots of their conversation.

“Since we know each other, I wanted to reach out to you personally to tell you the story about me and Chris dating has 0% truth,” Munn captioned a photo of the text she sent to the Mom actress. “I’m sure you already know it’s not true, or maybe didn’t care either way, but I just wanted to reach out personally to tell you it’s not true.”

Faris responded back writing, “Oh my god — this town is so f**king crazy-you are so sweet to text. I love you … let’s please catch up soon.”

As for the woman we know the actor is currently seeing, sources say they were set up by Schwarzenegger’s mother, Maria Shriver, who is very happy about where the relationship has gone so far.

“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 shared with E! News.
