Chris Pratt: Katherine Schwarzenegger will ‘God willing’ be a ‘great mom one day’

World Premiere Of Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures "Avengers: Endgame"

This was the top story/most-read story on People Magazine throughout the weekend, which makes sense when you realize that People Mag has always played footsie with all of the super-religious people. Chris Pratt is one of those people – very religious and Republican and definitely appealing to that MAGA/Git-Er-Done life. So what was the groundbreaking gossip about Pratt which was so widely read throughout a (relatively quiet gossip-wise) weekend? Pratt talking about his wife Katherine and how he hopes to have a kid with her soon. Honestly, I expected her to be knocked up already – they got married last June. Did you think that she would get pregnant quickly? I did.

Chris Pratt can’t help but gush about his wife Katherine Schwarzenegger. In a PEOPLE exclusive clip, the Jurassic World: Dominion star, 40, makes an appearance on E!’s In the Room where he opened up to host and friend Jason Kennedy about how meeting and marrying Schwarzenegger, 30, impacted him.

“She has changed my life for the better in so many ways,” Pratt says. “My heart, my soul, my son I feel are all so safe with her. She’s a great stepmom. She’s, God willing, going to be a great mom one day. She’s got great parents, great siblings, she fills in all my many deficits.”

“My nickname on these press tours is Yard Sale because I’m such a scatterbrain,” he added. “And she doesn’t mind helping me with that stuff. It’s a good match.”

The duo is hoping to add more than just pets to their family with sources telling PEOPLE last year that Pratt, and Schwarzenegger were excited to “expand their family as soon as possible” following their wedding.

Considering her young age (she’s 30), my guess is that they probably aren’t trying yet. Their courtship and engagement happened pretty quickly, and yet everything had a very old-school/traditional vibe to it. The whole idea of “waiting a year” after the wedding before trying to get pregnant seems sort of on-brand too. I also completely buy that Katherine is good with Jack, and that’s probably a big reason why Chris fast-tracked everything with her. He’s “the marrying kind” – he wanted to settle down with a nice, churchy woman who would be a great stepmom to his son. And that’s exactly what happened. And for what it’s worth, I think Katherine will probably be a good mom too. It sort of kills me how well-suited Chris and Katherine are for each other. We see so many odd couples and WTF-couples around here, so when a couple makes perfect sense for each other, it throws everybody for a loop.

    Hope he doesn’t give away those pets once they do have kids.

  2. Smalltown Girl says:

    I wonder if she’s already pregnant and his answer is worded as such because it’s too early to talk about it, but at the same time it’s on his mind so he is hinting at it,

  3. Jekelly says:

    He never mentioned anything about being in love with her, I found that bizarre.

  4. Tila says:

    He’s got some thicc thighs!

  5. Esme says:

    His comment is all about what she can do for him. No mention of what he’s doing for her (except maybe getting her pregnant, so she can be a “great mom”)
    He’s rich and good looking, but I think she could definitely have found someone better.

    • TIFFANY says:

      RIGHT ???!!!!

      She is a Kennedy and she chose….this dude.

      And I am side eyeing Maria for setting them up. Because, well, she is a Kennedy.

    • Elaine Stritch says:

      Yeah he’s someone who has definitely lost favour with me over the past few years. I’m sure he’s always been like this, but the more exposure I have to him the less charming I find him on screen. I find it hard to separate with him…

      • Shirleygailgal says:

        Chris Pratt and Nathan Fillion both got by on their good looks and charm and a certain level of ‘quirkiness’ …. but deep down, they both seem to hold some uncomfortable attitudes towards women….

      • Blueskies says:

        …and animals. This guy has become my nemesis.

  6. McMom says:

    I think she’s adorable – I’m not sure if I’d have much to talk about with her, but she seems happy and sweet and someone who is nice to be around.

    I don’t understand why he is a movie star. He seems like someone I would know (through work or school) and forget about, if I hadn’t seen him in a while.

  7. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Omg. He sounds like an elder at Gloriavale. Who TF are you Pratt? What TF are you going to do for her? Are you safe? Are you a good husband and father?

  8. grabbyhands says:

    Yeah, god willing because we all know that her only job as a woman is to be a babymaker for Jeebus.

  9. Lady Baden-Baden says:

    Are we sure he’s Republican? I know he has conservative views and the Republicans try to claim him as one of them, but I thought he was known to be a Democrat?

  10. Andrew’s Nemesis says:

    He’s got the clear thousand mile gaze of the religious fanatic.
    *runs screaming*

  11. Flamingo says:

    I think that he is gearing up to run for political office. Probably in his home state of MN. I’d be curious to see if he owns property there.

  12. carmen says:

    *This* was the top story on People Magazine??!

  13. Eliza_ says:

    They seem like a pretty but not so smart couple. Like they met and said at the same time: “you’re pretty…. oh you like God and family too?! Let’s get married!”

    I too am surprised she’s not announced yet, but I always feel weird discussing family planning because you never know what’s happening.

  14. Allergy says:

    No I don’t like him.
