It's official. Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger, who have been dating since June 2018, will be tying the knot.

Pratt, 39, announced his engagement to the 29-year-old Schwarzenegger in a sweet Instagram post on Monday.

"Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes!" exclaimed the Jurassic World actor. "I'm thrilled to be marrying you. Proud to live boldly in faith with you. Here we go!"



Schwarzenegger, who is the daughter of politician Arnold Schwarzenegger and broadcast journalist Maria Shriver, reposted Pratt's photo, captioning her response with, "My sweet love. Wouldn't want to live this life with anyone but you."

Prominently featured in the photo of the couple in a loving embrace is Schwarzenegger's diamond engagement ring on her finger as the American author embraces her fiancé.

The internet cheered the happy couple.





Not everyone was delighted by the news. Some criticized the engagement for being hasty and predicted their marriage would not last.

However, this user had the perfect response for the bitter trolls.




Pratt's former wife Anna Farris was among those who praised the exciting news. She and the former Parks and Recreation actor went their separate ways in August 2017 and finalized their divorce in October 2018. But they remain friends and share custody of their 6-year-old son, Jack.

"I'm so happy for you both! Congratulations!" she wrote.



Fans couldn't help but inject some Guardians of the Galaxy and Terminator references.







Rumors of a romance brewing between Pratt and Schwarzenegger began when a photo of them happily picnicking together in Santa Barbara, CA, surfaced last June on Father's Day.

Since then, the two have enjoyed numerous trips together and have met each others' families.


It wasn't until last month when Pratt publicly discussed his relationship. For Schwarzenegger's 29th birthday, he posted an amorous birthday message for his love.

"Your smile lights up the room. I've cherished our time together. Thrilled God put you in my life. Thankful for the laughs, kisses, talks, hikes, love and care."


According to PEOPLE, Maria Shriver was responsible for arranging her daughter's meet-up with the actor.

A close source to the couple disclosed, "They're both serious about the relationship and hopeful for the future. Chris doesn't just date to date, and neither does Katherine. She's very excited."

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Well that was a close call. That is everyone's main life mantra. If you really think about it, you'll know it to be true. Everyday we live, is another day we've survived, and death isn't the only thing we frequently sidestep. I have lost track of the amount of times my heart has almost gotten me into trouble. If I had been able to be with the people I thought I wanted in the past, I'd be in a mental ward right about now. Dodging a bullet doesn't even begin to cover it.

When your time is up, your time is up. And when we march off into the afterlife it feels like everyone wants one of two or two things. People want to go out in a blaze of glory and/or in peace and without pain. I don't know if both is possible but I'll choose option two please. What I know for sure is I definitely don't want to be smoted by a stupid death. Like, Lord, please don't let me die choking on fried chicken and an XL frozen Appletini at the Dallas BBQ because I was laughing to hard at my own jokes. Please.

Redditor u/BlueD_ wanted everyone to fess up about the times they almost met their maker in a less than dignified manner by asking... What's the dumbest way you almost died?

We may not know it, but sometimes things that seem routine or are just one of our personal habits can really hold back our lives.

One little change to cut those things, or to include new things, can really change the quality of our lives for the better. We have to be willing to drop old routines, which is hard and scary; and we need to be willing to accept new ideas into our space, which is also hard and scary.
