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!

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
