To many average person out there – which includes us also, it is common to feel surprised when Chris Pratt announced his engagement to Katherine Schwarzenegger. We know, right – like, what?! The “Guardians of the Galaxy” star made the announcement on his Instagram account just a week ago.
But why did Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger get engaged so soon? Well, even if it might seem like a fairly whirlwind engagement, a new source reveals that they’ve felt serious from the start.
Chris and Katherine started dating in April last year. Their engagement comes a little over a year after Chris and Anna Faris ended their 8-year marriage in August 2017. Anna has also moved on though and is dating cinematographer Michael Barrett.
And although they got engaged after being together for, like, seven months, a source said they don’t feel like they’re rushing things.
“For someone on the outside, it might seem their engagement came too quickly. But for everyone close to them, it feels like they have been dating much longer than they actually have.”
First off, did you guys know that Chris was introduced to Katherine by her mother Maria Shiver? Maria, the matchmaker, innit? This reportedly has helped them get to know each other faster and helped make their relationship feel more meaningful from the get-go.
Ever since then, they didn’t have to take things slowly because they were getting to know each other’s families. Chris has also been bonding with all of Katherine’s siblings and it was clear to her entire family they would get married. Okay, it is now clear for us too.
What’s adorable is the fact that Chris even asked Katherine’s parents – Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver—for their approval before proposing. This just goes to show how much her family loves the actor.
Also, the two have made a conscious effort to include each other’s families in their lives. They’ve not only gone on double dates with Chris’ ex Anna Farris and her new boyfriend, but Chris reached out to Anna before he proposed to Katherine.
Both Chris and Katherine understand that their relationship has moved fast. But at the same time they both know it’s right and that they are so happy together. Well, we can’t deny – they’re such a great fit together!
Now that the dating relationship has blossomed into an engagement, it’s safe to say that Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger are headed to the altar very, very soon.
