Chris Pratt & Katherine Schwarzenegger welcomed their second daughter, Eloise

A few weeks ago, Chris Pratt was doing some promotion for Jurassic World: Dominion, and he was asked about his pregnant wife Katherine Schwarzenegger and whether they planned to have even more children. Pratt joked that they want to have “a dozen children,” and how he’s always wanted a big family. He’s already dad to Jack, who turns 10 years old later this year, and daughter Lyla Maria, who is 21-months old. And now Chris and Katherine have welcomed another girl.

Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt’s newest addition has arrived! The couple revealed on Sunday that they welcomed their second baby together, who was born on Saturday.

“We are so excited to announce the birth of our second daughter, Eloise Christina Schwarzenegger Pratt. We feel beyond blessed and grateful,” they wrote in separate Instagram posts. Chris and Katherine are also parents to 21-month-old daughter Lyla Maria, while Pratt is dad to son Jack, 9½, with ex-wife Anna Faris.

Sources confirmed to PEOPLE in December that Pratt and Schwarzenegger Pratt, who tied the knot in June 2019, had another baby on the way. They welcomed their first child, daughter Lyla, in Aug. 2020. A source told PEOPLE in December that Chris and Katherine are “ecstatic” about welcoming baby No. 2 to their family. “They always hoped for Lyla to have another sibling. They feel very blessed,” the insider said.

The source said that Katherine “loves being a mom,” adding: “Lyla is her world. She has help, but is also very hands-on.”

I appreciate that “sources” talk about how they have help. I imagine it’s true though, Katherine is hands-on AND she has help. I’m a little bit surprised that they have two girls now! That alone makes me think they’ll go for a third and Chris maybe wants another boy. Will they stop after three Schwarzenegger-Pratt children? Eh, probably not! Anyway, congrats to them, I guess. The name Eloise is good, although I now negatively associate the name with Bridgerton and my least favorite character. Eloise Pratt… and big sister Lyla Pratt. I feel like Katherine is getting her way on the names.

    I bet they will end up having atleast half a dozen kids. He seems like the type who would really want a wife to stay at home and keep having his kids so he can bring home the bacon.

    • SarahCS says:

      Very much, it’s the wife as a support to her husband vibe, ‘traditional’ gender roles. I see them having more as a sort of weird status symbol.

    • FC says:

      She also seems like the type to think that using birth control is a sin.

      • Barbie1 says:

        Definately. Her mom is also religious and sure did have a lot of kids. Looks like all she wants to do is pop out kids and be a supportive rich airhead.

      • Grant says:

        Last week, Maria Shriver was posting in disgust at the leaked SCOTUS opinion and potential overturn of Roe v. Wade, so she’s not that far right.

    • Lucy says:

      He’ll want to keep going until he has a “healthy” son – his words, not mine!

  2. Call Me Mabel says:

    Just here for how toxic the comment section is going to become. I snuck in some popcorn and sodas in my purse if anyone wants some.

    • Orangeowl says:

      Lol, good call. I was looking at the photos, marveling at how much I loved him as Andy in Parks and Rec and how repulsed I am by him now. Quite a shift.

  3. FHMom says:

    Congratulations to them. The name is pretty. I had no idea she was pregnant again.

  4. Kathleen says:

    I can’t stand him but I oddly think she is sort of lovely bc she reminds me of her mother who I do like. Wish she wasn’t with him.

    • Sue E Generis says:

      Really? She doesn’t remind of Maria at all. Maria is smart, driven, interesting. Katherine just comes across as very vacant.

      • Yup, Me says:

        Agreed. I just looked at her face and still can’t remember a damn thing about her. Nothing about her personally is remotely interesting or striking, but she’s surrounded by sparkly people so she gets some adjacent shine.

      • Paige says:

        have had several encounters being in a service position with MS, her children and AS…They were all horrible. Maria especially was so arrogant and rude always expecting everything be done for her-for free no less-the children were allowed to run freely through my place of business, taking what they wanted,,the parents not caring if they broke it or stole it…expecting my staff to babysit them…They let everything a mess and of course no tip for my staff…we dreaded when that Hummer world double park outside…Maria would literally take things without paying and wait for us to mention??? THE WORST….Also knew her brother-who was NOTHING like her…I asked him politely to not encourage them to frequent my shop…I tdont know if he was offended but I hink he was sympathetic and did!

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ Paige, that makes me sad. I am terribly sorry that you and your staff had to deal with such insensitive behaviour from apparently the entire family. It’s people like Maria, that comes from one of the most influential families in the 20th century that should, with her extensive travels and insight, to see first hand the depravity that families, especially children, suffer around the world. I am familiar with her mother but only read of Maria’s work in journalism. I guess people with the most influence can be absolute pr!cks no matter what.

        As for Pratt and his Stepford wife, I see her bowing down to his every need, that insufferable, talentless sensitive snowflake.

  5. Sofia says:

    Congrats to them both!

  6. DuchessL says:

    CP needs a pretty vulnerable young little wife to feel like he’s a strong capable man. So annoying. His wife likes the idea of a traditional marriage with traditional roles. She grew up in a gilded cage, where money never was an issue, she didn’t have a need to find a way to soar professionally. She is living her pretty dream. Boring but nothing wrong with being dreamy and boring. Congrats on baby #2!

  7. Flower says:

    I wonder what Arnie really thinks of this Pratt? I can’t see them getting on.

    Katherine strikes me as wanting to rebuild the happy family life she had as a child, which is great, I just hope she is not hurt or disappointed like her mother was.

    • EnormousCoat says:

      Maybe I’m wrong, but didn’t her father have a ‘no trousers’ for women rule in the home? I swear I remember reading that many, MANY years ago. I’m off to hunt for that comment, which to me, would explain SO much about this relationship.

      Edit: it didn’t take me long to find a reference:
      Her father loves strong women who are pretty and don’t wear pants bc that is too masculine and threatening. That home couldn’t have been good. He hid an affair and whole child from them, under their noses.

  8. Andie says:

    Does he like her more than his favourite baseball glove though? Serious question, he didn’t say!

  9. Case says:

    I don’t care for him, but I’ve always thought she seemed like a lovely person. I love the baby names they pick! Eloise and Lyla, so pretty!

  10. Annalise says:

    I will NEVER like Katherine Shwartznegger (sp?) after she scheduled her bridal shower for the same day as her half brother’s college graduation. College graduations are scheduled at LEAST a year in advance, so there is simpy NO WAY that she scheduled her shower first. She knew what she was doing.
    Malicious b*tch.
    PS- the funny part is that apparently Arnold only made a brief appearance at her shower and spent the rest of the day with his son Joseph at his graduation.

  11. FeministYeah says:

    She’s an airhead and he’s an insufferable POS. My condolences to the baby.

  12. Yo says:

    I CANNOT believe I ever found him attractive he’s so repugnant AND he looks like a gross tired old man with a young girl on his lap so barfing right now

  13. Julia K says:

    Sounds as if he wanted a traditional stay at home wife and she wants to be a traditional stay at home wife. They both have what they want so good for them. If they’re happy, I’m happy for them.
