Everything Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger Have Said About Having Kids and Parenthood
Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt are going to be parents!
The couple, who tied the knot almost one year ago, are expecting their first child together, multiple sources confirmed to PEOPLE.
In February, the Jurassic World: Dominion star opened up about why he knew his wife, 30, would make a wonderful mother.
“She’s, God willing, going to be a great mom one day. She’s got great parents, great siblings, she fills in all my many deficits,” he said during an appearance on E!’s In the Room.
“She has changed my life for the better in so many ways,” Pratt added. “My heart, my soul, my son I feel are all so safe with her. She’s a great stepmom.”

Sources previously told PEOPLE that the newlyweds were excited to “expand their family as soon as possible” following their nuptials.
Opening up about the profound impact fatherhood has had on his life, Pratt previously said that his career on screen pales in comparison to “being somebody’s daddy.”
“I’ve done all kinds of cool things as an actor. I’ve jumped out of helicopters and done some daring stunts and played baseball in a professional stadium,” he told Variety in 2014. “But none of it means anything compared to being somebody’s daddy.”
That same year, Pratt spoke with Redbook magazine about what it was like when Jack was born nine weeks premature.
“The baby was so beautiful to us, and I look back at the photos of him and it must have been jarring for other people to come in and see him, but to us, he was so beautiful and perfect,” he told the publication. “We were scared for a long time.”

Schwarzenegger Pratt has also found out firsthand how much love can grow when children are involved.
In a sweet Father’s Day post last year, the animal advocate revealed that she fell in love with her husband by watching him be a “hands on and loving father” to his son Jack.

Not sure what made me more proud: when Jack insisted on holding this barracuda himself, or when he tried it raw! (Barracuda sashimi is amazing by the way) haha!! 4 year olds will try anything! Get out and fish! No better way to share God’s bounty with your babies and make life long memories than fishing! Get out on the water! #fishing #fishingislife

“Instead of mostly enjoying solo, romantic dates, Chris’ son from early on was a very big part of their dating life,” an insider told PEOPLE in January 2019, highlighting the fact that it was important for the couple to include Jack in their early outings.
“Katherine is like a big kid and loves doing activities with Jack. She loves that Chris is a dad,” the source added. “Seeing Chris with Jack made Katherine positive from early on that Chris is ‘the one.’ ”
Schwarzenegger Pratt’s father has also been looking forward to becoming a grandparent.
“I don’t push it because I know it’s going to happen eventually. It’s up to Chris and her when they want to do that,” Arnold Schwarzenegger told Extra last year. “I’m looking forward it to, yes.”
