Katherine Schwarzenegger & Chris Pratt are expecting their first child together

Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger go for a walk the extended family

I’ve been playing a little game with myself where I’m trying to predict which celebrities will come out of quarantine lockdown pregnant. I think Serena Williams is on the “maybe” pile. I think Rafa Nadal and his wife are already expecting. I’m lowkey worried that the Batfleck will impregnate Ana de Armas. But this was an obvious one: Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger. Any gossip knucklehead could have predicted that one. And guess what? We were all correct. Shortly after some paparazzi got some photos of Katherine looking quite bumpy, the couple confirmed the news:

Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger are expanding their family in a Jurassic way. E! News has learned the couple is expecting their first child together less than a year after saying “I Do” in an idyllic California wedding. This will be the first baby for Katherine and the second for Chris, who shares his son Jack with ex-wife Anna Faris. Since the pair exchanged vows in front of family and friends, sources close to the couple have suggested that more kids could be in this couple’s future.

“Katherine and Chris have been very open about wanting kids soon,” an insider previously shared with E! News. “She’s expressed she’d love to be pregnant in early 2020. Chris has a busy year coming up with filming, but both of them are ready to start this next chapter and bring a baby into their happy marriage.”

But at the same time, both parties have simply been enjoying the newlywed phase of their very special relationship. The baby news comes a little over a month after Katherine released her book The Gift of Forgiveness. Moreover, Chris’s latest family movie Onward—released on Disney +—which goes to show kids have always been on their mind.

[From E! News]

Katherine has been taking neighborhood walks with her husband and with her family during the lockdown, and I only just realized that she’s been covering her midsection in loose, baggy clothing for the past two months. She’s showing already, so I feel pretty sure that she’s already well into her second trimester. I’m happy for them – they are incredibly well-suited for each other and I imagine they’re very excited about this.

    Kat Pratt is going to have a boy named Matt Pratt to join big brother Jack Pratt, because it’s all about that.

  2. Ali says:

    Congrats to the happy couple.

    I know a lot of people working on getting pregnant. Sucks for them as the timing is the worst.

  3. BlondieR says:

    First, only surprised it didn’t happen sooner! Congrats to them!

    Second, I was thinking about people saying things about baby booms after the quarantine, but I’m wondering if it won’t happen. There’s really no fixed date to end and I would think people would be concerned to put themselves in a position where they need medical attention at this time.

    Good vibes and wishes to everyone out there!

      Plus, so many people lost their jobs, which in the US means they have lost health coverage as well… and childbirth is exhorbitantly expensive. My brother and sister-in-law were hoping to start trying this year but they both lost their jobs so now they have to put their family plans on hold.

      I agree that many people will choose not to have kids right now.

      • Ali says:

        I dont think there will be a post-quarantine baby boom.

        But I do worry for people without access to planned parenthood or other services.

    • Kay says:

      I think that people with secure jobs will probably think “well, might as well suffer through the first trimester at home!” and go for it, while people without secure jobs will be devastated by having to wait and will quickly get tired of the quarantine baby boom jokes.

    • Sarah says:

      I think a divorce boom is equally likely… *eye twitches*

  4. mika says:

    I hate this couple but… itll be a real cute kid.

    • tempest prognosticator says:

      It’ll have nice hair and a toothy grin.

    • ChillyWilly says:

      Katherine really lucked out by getting her parents’ best features. It could have been an unfortunate outcome had she not.

  5. Lindy says:

    I’m just generally grossed out by this couple and by the religious zealotry so it’s hard to be happy for them. But congrats I guess?

    • Mika says:

      Yes. THIS. Thanks Lindy.

      I’m grossed out by the religion, by Chris Pratt’s Trumpness, by the way his relationship to Anna Faris fell apart and by how the white Schwarzenegger children treat their brother, Joseph Baena.

      • Redgrl says:

        @mika – all of this!

      • Züri says:

        Absolutely to all of this @mika and @lindy! Also, he doesn’t seem to see his son Jack all that often or am I just reading too much into it?

      • tcbc says:

        Eh, it takes more than blood to be family.

      • @Backstage Bitchy says:

        Not a fan of any of these people but the Schwarzenegger kids are under no obligation to accept as their “brother” the result of one parent’s affair. Why should they? They didn’t have anything to do with choices made by the ADULTS in that situation or the resulting consequences. I understand the goal is to get people riled up about the class issues etc. and while the whole affair was undoubtedly built on a deep and gross power imbalance, and was an incredible betrayal to the whole family, I am not on board with the KIDS getting blowback for not greeting the resulting child with open arms as a family member. That is NOT their responsibility.
        That being said, Arnold obviously DOES have obligations to the kid that resulted from the affair…

      • MA says:

        @Mika what do you mean about the way his marriage with Anna Faris fell apart?

      • Lucy2 says:

        I agree with backstage, we don’t know the dynamic there, it’s likely very complicated.

      • Izzy says:

        She and her siblings may not be under any obligation to accept their half-brother or have a relationship with him, but that is still punishing him for the sins of their father so maybe she shouldn’t be writing a book about forgiveness until she can practice what she preaches.

      • Ali says:

        @MIKA no one should be forced to have a relationship with someone when they don’t want to

    • Snappyfish says:

      Well said. You did a better job than I could. She was brought up in the most catholic of families & her idolatry is a “follow my man” form of religion & I find it creepy. I think it’s too soon to have a child. You haven’t been married a year yet. Il. That is my opinion & of course everyone is free to make their own mistakes.

      • Gigi La Moore says:

        Considering a lot of people over 40 have parents who married because their mother was pregnant, I will let them slide on their “timing”.

      • Melissa says:

        @Gigi – I am one of those, my parents married in June, I’m a December baby. It was the alternative to Mom being sent to an out of town relative and giving me up for adoption.

      • Gigi La Moore says:

        @Melissa. You and my oldest brother. Lol.

    • carmen says:

      Isn’t she Catholic? That doesn’t seem so extreme or out of the ordinary…

    • RedWeatherTiger says:

      Yep. He is particularly vile, and I cannot imagine the kind of woman who would agree not only to marry him but to have his children. ACK. .

      • Ali says:

        @IZZY Joseph is being punished. That would assume he deserves something and it was bring taken away.

  6. Sofia says:

    Congrats to them! From what I’ve read/heard about Katherine, it seems she’s looking for a purpose in life (seems to happen to a lot of rich kids) so I think she’s found one (or thinks she’s found one) in becoming a wife/step-mum/mum.

  7. FHMom says:

    I bet they a bunch of kids. Congrats to them.

  8. Marjorie says:

    “I’m lowkey worried that the Batfleck will impregnate Ana de Armas.”

    SQUEEEEE! You rule, Kaiser!

  9. Melissa says:

    I get why people are turned off by him, but what has she done that’s offensive?

    • Casey says:

      I think its largely the very zealous religious aspect, her ‘follow my man’ and defer to him attitude, the way she and her siblings (particularly sister) pretty much refuse to have a relationship with Joseph (its not his fault how he was conceived, and sure they don’t HAVE to have a relationship with him, but she literally never acknowledges him, leaving him out of any talk of siblings or family) and her general ‘trying waaaaaaay too hard’ super privileged white girl attitude. her instagram is a rich girls show off

      • Gigi La Moore says:

        I think the brother part is bad, but if she wants to follow Chris Pratt that is her business. I believe in a woman’s right to choose their own destiny. The Instagram thing….she is just doing what everybody else out there is doing.

      • Anners says:

        Re how they never refer to Joseph – I dunno, it’s kind of hard. My mum had a child before she was married who was given up for adoption. She came back into our lives when I was a teenager and I consider her my sister, but if you ask me how many siblings I have, I always say 1 brother – because that’s how I grew up. It isn’t meant as a slight on my sister – it’s just these weird mental gymnastics that make sense to me and maybe seem cold to anyone else.

      • Mika says:

        I think it’s really rough that they seem to blame Joseph, the child and his mother and not the father/cheater/employer in the situation.

      • Melissa says:

        Yea, I’m not going to hack on anyone for their religion as long as they aren’t hurting anyone else. Her life, her choice.

        Instagram is nothing BUT a thirst trap – it is literally designed for attention.

        As far as her brother – no, it is certainly not his fault and by all accounts his Father is doing the right things both financially and with his time.
        I have two younger sisters, one was born when I was a senior in high school – my father was married to his second wife at the time and the woman who would eventually be his fourth wife gave birth. She and I had nothing at all to do with each other until about 2 years ago. We also have another sister that is 12 ( I’m 51) that I have never met. So I very much understand not having a sibling relationship with your father’s love child.

      • Kebbie says:

        @Anners I know what you mean. I have a half sister that I didn’t grow up with and on more than one occasion when speaking to her said “my mom” instead of “mom” or “our mom” 🤦🏼‍♀️

        She wasn’t given up for adoption but she chose to live with her paternal grandparents and she was much older than us, so she doesn’t immediately register in my mind as my sibling. She is my sister, but I’d say I was the only girl between two brothers if I were asked.

  10. emmy says:

    They seem well matched. Reasonably attractive, Catholic with a hint of performance, enough money to not have to exert oneself intellectually… god they’re bland.

  11. VS says:

    Congrats to them; all the best!

  12. Normades says:

    I wouldn’t call this a quarantine baby because if she’s well into her 2nd trimester, the seed was planted well before they locked down.

    Also they are very well matched because they’re both super basic.

  13. Doublesteff says:

    In that camo jacket pic, the Fitzgerald/Kennedy genes are front and center. Goodness, I didn’t even realize it was Katherine until I clicked on the photo for a closer look.
    But congrats to them.

  14. Linda says:

    Congratulations to them.

  15. Casey says:

    and now that Chris has established his career, watch him spend WAY more time with this kid than he did with Jack and Anna, and go on about how much fo a family man he is and how he wants to spend all his time at home with his kid when he didn’t do that with Jack

  16. Jules says:

    I thought she already announced she was pregnant. Months ago. I’m in a time warp. Or they post too much.

  17. Christy says:

    I can’t stand this guy and his ex, both of them are gross people. Poor Katherine.

  18. tcbc says:

    I wouldn’t treat Joseph as family either. He’s just their father’s love child, as another poster said. They shouldn’t slag him off, because his conception was not his fault, but he shouldn’t expect to be invited to their birthdays or weddings, either.

    • Gigi La Moore says:

      I would treat Joseph as my brother. Now, my father on the other hand….I would have a MAJOR problem with him. The wrong person is getting the ire.

  19. a says:

    She has great hair. That’s all I got.

  20. MaryContrary says:

    She bugs the crap out of me for some reason. That she’s a “author” based on her family’s famous names and has done nothing else-but clearly does call the papps on herself. Why in the world would anyone care what she does and yet she’s always being photographed.

  21. Zzzee23 says:

    I had no opinion of her until she released a book titled “The Gift of Forgivness,” when she appears to still hold resentment towards her half-brother. I think she should be taking her own advice before lecturing others.

  22. L4frimaire says:

    How does one expand in a “ Jurassic way”? Anyway, happy for them if they’re happy. Their family dramas are a wee bit messy but not that unusual.

  23. Case says:

    Don’t love this couple but congrats to them. She’s really strikingly beautiful.

  24. Ange says:

    Eh, they’re boring but we all knew it was coming. I always find it odd with these celebrities that they meet, marry and conceive so quickly. If you married a bloke you’d barely been with a year wouldn’t you at least wait a bit before having a kid? Makes no sense.

    • Case says:

      Agreed. I don’t get that with normal people, too. I get it — sometimes it’s just “when you know, you know,” but I always envisioned enjoying being married and traveling and doing coupley things with my partner before adding a baby into the mix. My parents were married 7 years before they had me, by choice. I think that’s a great way to build a solid relationship before bringing a child into the world. But I suppose wealthy people can more easily continue a childless lifestyle even with kids though, lol.

  25. Smiles says:

    @MaryContrary Same! Something about her annoys me every time I see a picture of her. Besides being an “author”, what else has she done/ currently do?

  26. Eda says:

    I can’t muster any respect for him or his ex since he abandoned his senior cat because he had a baby, and then they abandoned an chihuahua they adopted together. People in animal rescue know allllll about people like that. Seriously- f*ck them. The internet never forgets.

    Nothing to say about her except, she seems sheltered and maybe a touch naive. Why else would she be with such a douche?
