Chris Pratt is opening up about his relationship with wife Katherine Schwarzenegger. During an appearance on E!’s In the Room, the actor spoke with host and friend Jason Kennedy about the ways in which Schwarzenegger has affected him, according to People.
“She has changed my life for the better in so many ways. My heart, my soul, my son I feel are all so safe with her. She’s a great stepmom,” Pratt said.
During the interview, Pratt also opened up about how Schwarzenegger manages to compensate for his weaknesses, even as he thinks about their future together.
“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,” the Guardians of the Galaxy actor said.
Schwarzenegger is the eldest child of actor and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and journalist Maria Shriver. At age 30, Katherine is their eldest child who has a younger sister and two younger brothers.
Pratt, who is 40 years old, has been doing interviews to promote Onward, the new Pixar animated film he co-stars with fellow Marvel star Tom Holland. Pratt said that when promoting a movie, he often finds it difficult to wrangle his own thoughts.
“My nickname on these press tours is Yard Sale because I’m such a scatterbrain. And she doesn’t mind helping me with that stuff. It’s a good match,” Pratt said.
Sources representing The Avengers: Infinity War actor told People that the couple is eager to begin having children as soon as possible. For now, Katherine is stepmom to Pratt’s son from his marriage to Anna Farris. Apparently, Pratt’s son Jack was part of their relationship even in its early stages. Reports suggest that Katherine takes after her father, and is “like a big kid.” That makes her the perfect match for Jack, and sources tell People the two love doing things together.
Pratt and Schwarzenegger were married on June 8, 2019. Before that, the two dated for about a year after first being spotted in each other’s company in June 2018. They spent their first Thanksgiving together that year.
Sources told People that Pratt knows Schwarzenegger’s family well, and feels comfortable around them.
Pratt has also been very willing to hit up his new father-in-law up for workout tips. In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Arnold said that this was among the first topics the two discussed.
