Chris Pratt & Katherine Schwarzenegger are expecting their second child together


Well, this explains why Chris Pratt was being so effusive with the most valuable member of his household staff, his wife Katherine Schwarzenegger, the one who “gave” him a “healthy daughter.” Pratt has tried to do two separate Instagrams about Katherine and how he loves how much she does for him in recent months, and now we know why: Katherine is pregnant. She’s expecting her second child after welcoming daughter Lyla in August 2020. This will be Pratt’s third child.

Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt is going to be a mom again! The author is pregnant, expecting her second baby with husband Chris Pratt next year, multiple sources confirm to PEOPLE exclusively.

The couple, who wed in June 2019, is already parents to daughter Lyla Maria, 16 months. Pratt is also dad to 9-year-old son Jack with ex-wife Anna Faris.

Reps for Pratt and Schwarzenegger Pratt have not commented.

[From People]

I mean, this is why he married her and I believe that this is what they both want. They both want a big family and more kids. Congrats to them, I guess. I’m assuming he’ll praise her for giving him another “healthy” child when the time comes. I’m honestly trying not to be negative, I think they’re both probably okay parents, and I would guess that they both love the fact that Katherine’s extended family is close-by. She has backup, etc. They’ll be fine. They won’t stop with this kid either.

    Motherhood is hard and rigorous and constantly keeps me at my personal growth edges. It amazes me that it also seems to be the pastime of choice for women who haven’t managed to make much else of themselves.

    I’m sure they will remain quite happy. None of the hardships of modern day American parenting are burdens they have to bear.

    • JerseyCow says:

      omg comment of the decade. “Motherhood is hard and rigorous and constantly keeps me at my personal growth edges.” 💯 “Pastime of choice for women who haven’t managed to make else of themselves” 👏👏👏

    • salmonpuff says:

      I feel every word of this comment in my bones.

    • Sue says:

      I just said to my therapist last week that I truly applaud SAHM’s. I could not do it. It has nothing to do with not wanting to be with my daughter but about maintaining my mental health. I need something of my own outside of the house. I am coming up on the end of my maternity leave and ooh boy I need to go back to work.

    • canichangemyname says:

      Dayum – this comment hit me in my feels – truth. You win the internet today (yeah, that saying’s played out but still applies here).

    • Rebecca says:

      I find the second part of this comment insulting. I have a masters degree. I worked more than a decade in a busy downtown emergency room. I have five kids. I decided to go to casual status after my third and have been home as a full time SAHM since the pandemic started ( I had my fifth in late 2020). I am successful in my field and love being a mother. I have made something of myself at work and at home. Not one or the other 🙄

      • Laura says:

        So then it doesn’t apply to you? If you have made something of yourself elsewhere, then you’re not who “Yup Me” is talking about being amazed by.

      • Rebecca says:

        Yup me commenting that having children and deciding not to work is a past time is insulting to SAHM. It is ok to want to be a parent and not to pursue a career outside of the home. Parenting is not a hobby or past time. My point was I had a successful career for years, had my first child, continued to work had another child and feel in love with being a parent. I am not a fan of KS but if she wants to have a a big family and she has the means to support them (financially, emotionally) then good for her. There is this judgement of parents, always almost women, that they are giving up their personhood. She might find joy and meaning being a mother….not just a bored rich woman,

      • Veronica S. says:

        Eh, normally I’d agree with you, but the evangelist patriarchal tones are really evident here to me if you’re familiar with them. They’re play acting at being the perfect American family: the proud patriarch, the wholesome, submissive, adoring wife and mother.

        In reality, they’re immensely privileged and likely offload all of the work of actual parenting onto babysitters, nannies, and god knows who else. Own it and stop treating it like a vanity fair. Parenting isn’t a clean, sterile, happy experience packaged for selling on Instagram. That part of Yup, Me’s comment I get because it’s extremely disingenuous to pretend like the reality of most Americans, the majority of whom average 31K for income, have anything that charmed, and it’s especially glaring in light of the precariousness of women’s rights in the current climate.

  2. WhoElse says:

    He needs to stop looking at women as an oven for his perfect genes. Straight religious men can be the creepiest people on earth sometimes

    • A.Key says:

      He’s a narcissist with low self-esteem, he can’t help himself. He needs constant validation through his control over baby incubators he deems worthy of his perfect genetic pool. And he needs them to be totally submissive so he feels like a wonderful person.

  3. Sarah says:

    The fact that he said she chews so loudly that he puts earbuds in? BARF

    • BeeCee says:

      As someone with Misophonia, hearing people chew can be one of the biggest anxiety filling, fight or flight triggers.

      That is the only thing I sympathize with him over. I have to wear earbuds and listen to music when people are around me eating.

      • HeatherC says:

        I’m the same. I love my son but I can’t hear him chew. It’s painful and makes me unreasonably angry. So music or TV in the background it is (music through a streaming service so no lulls or commercials). That way we both eat happily.

      • John Osborne says:

        Misophonia is real. I was so relieved when I found out about it. I thought I was crazy.

      • E.D says:

        I suffer from it too and all ‘mouth sounds’ from other people are my biggest trigger and I go into ‘fight or flight’ mode instantly.
        As I’ve gotten older, I have learnt to remove myself from the situation but it still pushes every anger button/raw nerve in my body.
        It’s the worst!

  4. Monica says:

    Oh. Of course. I wish them well.

  5. Case says:

    I wish them well and yes, this is definitely what they want so good for them. I don’t get him in any way, but Katherine seems sweet, so. Whatever lol.

  6. MY3CENTS says:

    Hope that at least when she’s pregnant she allows herself to order off the adult menu.

  7. Barbie1 says:

    This will be her new job. Giving him babies non stop. Wait and see. Congrats.

    • kelleybelle says:

      I wonder if she’ll try to outdo Rose Kennedy or Hilaria Baldwin.

      • AppleCart says:

        I doubt it, she seems extremely happy with letting Chris be the “star” in the family. They strike me as the Quiverfill type. Lots of kids and the man is the leader of the family and all most obey his will. It’s easy to see why Anna bounced after he evangelized.

        But she can play at author and enjoy a bubble world she was born into most of us will never know. As far as lives goes, hers is pretty sweet.

  8. Jules says:

    I can’t wait for more barfy instagram posts from him.

  9. Lucia says:

    She always looks like she’s about to break out in tears.

    • Amanda says:

      I think it’s the constant, weird smile. It looks fake most of the time.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        she got her dad’s mouth/teeth/smile. big and toothy.

      • North of Boston says:

        She has more of her mother’s smile and teeth. Her top front teeth are almost identical comparing the pics here with old pictures of Maria Shriver.

        Meanwhile not even even Arnold has AS’s smile these days … he’s had his teeth redone a few times.

      • Ange says:

        Nah that smile shape is pure Schwarzenegger

    • Eugh says:

      It is her horrible eyebrows. No arch and odd slope. Truly tragic, similar look to the Peloton commercial woman.

      • Ann says:

        I think the Peloton commercial woman is beautiful, actually. Hate the ad but she is lovely. She looks like Emme Rossum.

  10. Anita says:

    For some reason, Katherine Schwarzenegger’s smile and devoted glances at Pratt remind me of the Duggar girs.

  11. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Way to go Katherine! Good job!

  12. els says:

    I’m sorry I glitched at the article: “The author is pregnant” She writes books?
    “Not being negative”: I’d say given his history with Anna Faris, it left a sour taste when he posts stuff like this… Everything he says is so over the top and too showy… And patronizing. He gives such a weird vibe… Your take on this is not negative. It’s just factual.
    Congrats for them. This is what they want, go for it!

  13. kelleybelle says:

    She looks like a pre-teen next to him, a child.

  14. Margo says:

    Happy news! I’ll take it. And for the record, they seem like pretty decent people. I know people give Chris a lot of crap, but what he’s writing on social media is clearly him writing – not some publicist. He may have poor word choice or phrasing, but he loves his wife, children and seems grateful for his life.

  15. Natters says:

    Well if you are going to be a mommy blogger for a living, you need to have some kids to blog about.

  16. Miasys says:

    My daughter told me that Starlord, his character in GotG, is canonically bisexual so every time I see a CrispRatt story, I think of that and laugh because you know it has to chap his little super-straight fundie performative Christian ass.

  17. Murphy says:

    Wow so they announced the second the stick was dry then

  18. Sonia says:

    What happens if one of her children have special needs?

  19. Lyds says:

    She looks like the type of person who doesn’t know what to do with her face but smile all the time…resting grin face. I also bet she laughs at everything CP says and they do “cutesy bits” in front of their friends before looking around to see if everyone is entertained, when the table is really inwardly cringing. They will take it as a compliment if you say, “you guys are so [fill in the snide adjective] you make me sick” and before you know it, an anecdote in the press about how their quirks make other ppl sick.

  20. Lee says:

    Here are two people feeling all happy and positive about their new baby and they have to read all this nasty and judgemental crap. This child is wanted and will be well loved. A lump of coal to all the nasty comments.

  21. Lucille says:

    Great. More vanilla kids by these two entitled vanilla people. They’ll probably have at least four. Being a mom and wife seems to be all she is unfortunately.
