Katherine Schwarzenegger predicted her relationship with Chris Pratt a year before they started dating
Katherine Schwarzenegger and Chris Pratt are engaged, and I really hope she takes his last name because I'm tired of spelling "Schwarzenegger." Everybody knows Chris Pratt, the hilarious chubby guy on Parks and Recreation who somehow transformed into a chiseled dinosaur-fighting superhero. But you're probably not as familiar with Katherine, aside from her famous father, Arnold, an acclaimed kindergarten cop and the first man to become pregnant.
While her father graced the big screen for decades and her mother is broadcast journalist Maria Shriver, Katherine has pursued a career away from the cameras, as an author. (Nerrrrd!) In 2010, she wrote a book about her journey to overcome body-image issues, entitled Rock What You've Got: Secrets to Loving Your Inner and Outer Beauty from Someone Who's Been There and Back. And in 2017, she wrote a children's book, Maverick and Me, about how she rescued and adopted her dog.
While Katherine was on a promotional run for Maverick and Me, she appeared on Access Hollywood. (Okay, so her career isn't totally away from the cameras.) After news of her engagement melted the internet's cold, dead heart, Access Online released a never-before seen interview recorded in August 2017. In the video, the 29-year-old author predicts her relationship with Chris Pratt a year before they stated dating. (That's right, math whizzes, they dated for seven months before getting engaged.)
As you know, Hollywood has an abundance of sexy Chrises that star in blockbuster action movies: Chris Evans (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Pine (Mr. Diana Prince) and Chris Pratt (Star Lord). But which one is the hottest? Which one would you choose? When the host poses this difficult question, Katherine replies, with no hesitation, Chris Evans. (Oof.) However, the prescient author quickly changes her mind, stating, "Actually, Chris Pratt. Chris Pratt has been looking good lately so, you never know."
Recently we learned that Chris Pratt asked for Arnold Schwarzenegger's permission before popping the question to his eldest daughter - which sounds very intimidating. "Chris asked for Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s permission around Christmas," an insider told Us Weekly, adding that, "Maria helped him with the proposal." Isn't that sweet? It's a good thing Arnold didn't help him with the proposal; Chris would've stormed insider her house with a shotgun and yelled, "COME WITH ME IF YOU WANT TO GET MARRIED."
If you majored in Celebrity Love Lives in college, you know that Chris Pratt was married to Anna Faris for eight years, and together they have one son. Right now probably wondering, how did Anna respond to the lightning-fast engagement? Is she going to send a liquid metal, shapeshifting T-1000 back in time to prevent Chris and Katherine from ever meeting? Actually, the 42-year-old actress is totally unfazed. On Instagram, she wrote, "I'm so happy for you both! Congratulations!"
Yes, congratulations, Katherine - you Secret Gardened your relationship with Chris Pratt into becoming a reality.
