Katherine Schwarzenegger Makes Her Chris Pratt Marriage Work With an Age-Old Relationship Advice

Katherine Schwarzenegger is probably the most high-profile child of the former Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger. She is a member of the famous Kennedy dynasty through her mother, Maria Shriver, and is an author, activist, and animal lover. Schwarzenegger is also the wife of movie star Chris Pratt, and recently, she opened up about their unique relationship, offering up some surprisingly timeless advice on how to keep a marriage healthy. 

When did Katherine Schwarzenegger and Chris Pratt start dating?

Pratt was involved in a long-term relationship with Anna Faris, the mother of his young son, Jack. After the two filed for divorce in late 2017, many fans speculated that it would only be a matter of time before Pratt was spotted with someone else.

They didn’t have to wait long — by early 2018, Pratt was seen with Katherine Schwarzenegger. Reportedly, the two had been set up by Schwarzenegger’s mother, Maria Shriver. 

All throughout the summer of 2018, Pratt and Schwarzenegger were seen on a series of intimate, fun dates. They grabbed ice cream together, attended church services, and spent a great deal of time with Pratt’s son, Jack. Pratt was introduced to Schwarzenegger’s family by late summer and by the time September rolled around, many reports claimed that the two were very serious about each other and their future together.

In January 2019, Pratt and Schwarzenegger announced on Instagram that they had gotten engaged. 

When did Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger get married?

Schwarzenegger and Pratt moved in together around the time of their engagement, only a few miles away from Pratt’s ex, Anna Faris. Over the next few months, Schwarzenegger spent a great deal of time at Pratt’s Washington-based farm, helping him tend to his animals and connecting through lots of quality time.

In June 2019, Pratt and Schwarzenegger tied the knot in a private, ultra-chic ceremony in California.

While they didn’t offer up many details about their big day, both Pratt and Schwarzenegger shared a touching photo of themselves after getting married, with Schwarzenegger resplendent in a strapless wedding gown. Reports that the two didn’t want to wait long before starting their family were proven correct when, on April 25th, reports claimed that Schwarzenegger and Pratt were expecting their first child together.

Details are scarce about the upcoming new addition, and no word on when the exact due date is, but there’s little doubt that both Pratt and Schwarzenegger are over the moon about the baby news.

Schwarzenegger has a hand in many projects, but recently, she completed her most popular one yet. The Gift of Forgiveness is a book written by Schwarzenegger and it is making waves all around the world. Recently, Schwarzenegger opened up during an interview promoting the book, offering up her best marriage advice. 

Schwarzenegger talked about her recent marriage to Pratt and admitted that communication is something that is of utmost importance to both of them. Schwarzenegger also said that “for me, especially in this time, constant communication is important. I’m not good with leaving things unsaid. I can’t do it. I’m not the kind of person who is able to do it. I don’t like to go to bed angry.”

She stated that Pratt feels the same way, and that “we also always check in, no matter how crazy our days are. We just like making sure we’re doing a temperature gauge with one another because we’re a team and we want to make sure that team is a strong one.”
