Katherine Schwarzenegger & Chris Pratt’s engagement could happen very soon

Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger are smitten after a date night at R+D Kitchen

It came to me a few weeks ago: Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger are actually perfect for each other. Pratt just happened upon a woman who will make a great “Hollywood wife” and more. I said at the time that I believe that they’ll be engaged by Christmas. So far so good – they’ve only been dating for three or four months, but they’re already going to church together and spending time with Chris’s son Jack, and going on Napa-wine-tasting vacations together. So now I wonder if the engagement will happen even sooner than I previously believed. Looks like “sources” wonder the same thing.

Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger might be walking down the aisle sooner than expected. The pair, who were first spotted together during a picnic on Father’s Day earlier this summer, have been getting serious recently.

“They’re such a great fit together,” a source tells PEOPLE. “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. Katherine has spent time with Chris’ family and they all love her too. She fits in really well with them and vice versa.”

The only question I have now is whether he’ll tie the proposal into some kind of holiday celebration, or whether he just looks for a gap in his schedule and takes her away on a vacation and does it there. Another possibility – and this would be so on-brand for Pratt – would be a proposal at his farm. That’s what he’ll do, right? He’ll, like, tie the ring on a string and tie the string around a goat. Her favorite goat, since she spends time there. Oh God.

I’m going to be completely honest, even if people think I’m being super-judgy, I’m really not: the reason I think Chris and Katherine are perfect for each other is that I really don’t think she has a lot going on, and her life will easily “blend” into his. She’ll help him raise Jack and they’ll want to have more kids, and she’ll stay at home and raise them, and that’s what HE wants and expects too, I think. She’s seen her mom be a Hollywood wife, so she knows how to do that. And if the time comes when Pratt wants to run for office, she’ll be the perfect and perky political spouse for that too. I see her doing some kind of lifestyle brand once they’re married, or perhaps a cookbook series. I can see it all perfectly. They’re going to last forever.

    Yeah. You’re right about all of this.

  2. minx says:

    She seems like a nice enough young woman, although sort of a dilettante.

    Is his divorce final?

    • BearcatLawyer says:

      MTE. Arnold and Maria always made such a big deal about bringing people their kids as strict Catholics. Granted, Arnold has not exactly practiced what he preached, but if this engagement and marriage happen, it would be further evidence that maybe, just maybe, the Schwarzenegger kids are not as Catholic as they were raised to be.

  4. Janet says:

    She reminds me a bit of Sophie Whatshername-Cumberbatch. I am all for photos of a juicy engagement ring, and glorious wedding coverage. Bring it on, y’all.

  5. ValiantlyVarnished says:

    Yup. I see all of this too. Chris is definitely the kind of dude who wants and needs a wife who is happy with him being the star of the family and for his career to be the priority and Katherine seems like the type of woman happy to be the woman behind the man. They will have a couple of kids and I totally see her doing a “Mom/lifestyle” thing on the side. Probably an Instagram personality type of thing.

  6. Kerfuffle says:

    He met and married Faris when she was by far the more successful person in their couple. We don’t know that what he wants and expects is for his partner to stay home and raise kids (especially since the buzz around he and Faris was that her drinking was what broke them up, not career issues). But it’s also not like K Schwarzenegger is doing a ton, so we may never find out anyhow.

  7. Hazel says:

    I think you are right. Although, she’s not a nepotism model, she’s a ‘lifestyle blogger’ which to me means you are this trust fund kid who has way too much time on their hands.

  8. Jegede says:

    I said it in the earlier post that Maria Shriver is pushing hard for her older kids to be married.

    Especially as her cousin, Caroline Kennedy’s, two daughters of similar age are married/engaged.

    Katherine also wants to settle down. This is not all on Chris Pratt.

  9. C says:

    Faris and Pratt seemed to fit while she was the funny actress and he was the funny awkward guy. At his new phase, it seems that Katherine fits better. Let’s be real, those HW people play by different rules and love is just one of the few factors that make them begin relationships and I don’t think they consider it the most important.

  10. Pandy says:

    They’re both boring to me so happy to see them be dull together!

  11. Baby Got Back Fat says:

    Can someone please explain to me how women who are “soooo passionate about animal rights” like Katherine Schwarzenegger and Lara Trump end up with men like Chris Pratt and Eric Trump???

  12. Olive says:

    absolutely perfect. and they’ll have a baby quickly after marriage (but probably not TOO quickly).

    and if he wants to go into politics one day, he will have the perfect mentor in arnold.

  13. holly hobby says:

    How will he mesh with the Kennedy clan? Isn’t he a dye in the wool GOPer? Arnold isn’t really a GOP although he belongs in the party. I found he is more open minded than the nazi lizard sitting in my house.

  14. Aries-Mira says:

    I wish I could be a SAHM. I miss my littles. I have a great job and my coworkers are amazing, but I wish I could have it when my kiddos were older. Husband stays at home (works from home too) and I am very thankful and grateful for that.

  15. Ellis says:

    So….she’s going to marry a Republican actor who stars in action films, who also happens to be into fitness? Can’t imagine what the attraction would be.

  16. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    Bwahaha! That’s how my hubs proposed to me – we’re both animal lovers & he had the engagement ring attached to his German Shepherd’s collar. 😂
