Chris Pratt and wife Katherine Schwarzenegger have welcomed a new baby. The birth announcement of the little baby girl was made on Instagram yesterday by the Guardians of The Galaxy star.
He shared a photo of the the baby’s hand being held by both he and Katherine’s.
‘We are beyond thrilled to announce the birth of our daughter, Lyla Maria Schwarzenegger Pratt,’ Pratt said. ‘We couldn’t be happier.’
‘Both mom and baby are doing great. We are extremely blessed,’ he continued, signing off: ‘Love Katherine and Chris.’
As celebrities do when convenient, Chris shared a couple of Biblical verses:
The first, Psalm 126:3, said: ‘The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.’
the second, another Psalm, read:
The next, Psalm 127:3-4, was a bit longer, reading: ‘Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.
‘Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.’
Although this is the first child for Katherine, It is not Chris Pratt’s. He shares custody of seven year-old Jack with actress Anna Faris whom he split from in 2018 after being married for eight years.
Rumours were abound that Pratt and Katherine were dating soon after the split from Anna but they were only confirmed after the divorce was confirmed. The couple were then married ten months later and child confirmed to be on the way in April this year.
One person who is definitely excited about being a grandparent is Katherine’s dad, Arnold. He commented on Friday during an interview with Fox 11 that ‘it’s going to be really, really exciting’ becoming a grandfather for the first time.
Congratulations to Chris Pratt And Katherine Schwarzenegger.
