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!

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the hottest and dumbest of them all?"

I know that is not verbatim the original quote, but it is close to the original.

Brains and beauty are always intertwined.

So often people confess about wanting to be more of the other.

No one is ever happy where they are. Why are we like that?

If given a chance, like a Disney movie, how do you trade?

Is it superficial to want looks over knowledge? Or vice versa?

Let's get deep....

Redditor BroodyBatman wanted to know who was willing to give up a little bit of brains for a whole lot of beauty, so they asked:

"Would you give up 15-20 IQ points to be really, REALLY ridiculously good looking? Why?"

The world is not so big a place, is it?

While we like to think of ourselves as isolated in this billion plus planet, there can be a lot more crossover than we think. We call these instances coincidences, hoping to find the right word to explain what happens when a one-in-a-million chance occurs.

If there's over seven billion plus people in the world, turns out you can run into these 'coincidences' more often than you think.

Let me make a quick point about conspiracy theories: Do people understand just how difficult it is for many of the conspiracies they claim to believe in to come to fruition? We're talking global levels of cooperation here, by the way, and it's clear the world can't even get itself out of a pandemic sooo...

But thankfully, there are some more innocent comnspiracies out there. For example, a former classmate once told me that he was convinced he couldn't remember all the items on his shopping list because of shopping elves distracting him to buy other things he didn't exactly need.

To be fair, he was a little stoned at the time and I told him he might want to consider just writing and referring to a shopping list.

"What’s a conspiracy that you believe, but the majority of people don’t believe or know about?"

Children are very impressionable. They're also little humans, remember, and all quite different. Some are more afraid of some things than others. When I was a kid, some of my classmates were utterly terrified of Chucky, the killer doll.

I think he worked the best in the first film and to a larger extent in the second, but after that? Those movies got a bit ridiculous, wouldn't you agree?

Well, the memories linger, as you can imagine.

"What’s something you saw (as a kid) that gave you nightmares for a long time?"
