- Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger just made their first red carpet debut as a couple at the Avengers: Endgame premiere.
- This comes just a few months after Chris and Katherine got engaged in January after dating less than a year.
- Chris was previously married to Anna Faris until they separated in August 2017. Chris met Katherine in June 2018.
Chris Pratt, 39, and Katherine Schwarzenegger, 29, daughter of Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger, just made their first red carpet debut at the premiere of Chris's new film, Avengers: Endgame. After recently getting engaged in January, the bride and groom-to-be were all smiles and laughs as they took pictures together before watching the blockbuster film (which the rest of the world finally gets to see this Friday).
But wait, who is Katherine? Unlike Chris's ex-wife Anna Faris, Katherine is not an actress, but rather an author and blogger, according to her Instagram account. She's also written three books, including the self-help manual Rock What You've Got: Secrets to Loving Your Inner and Outer Beauty from Someone Who's Been There And Back.
Here's a rundown of their relationship timeline:
August 2017: Chris Pratt announced separation from wife Anna Faris.
Chris shared the announcement on his Facebook page, saying "Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed."
April 2018: Anna opened up about their split.
Anna about her divorce in April 2018: "What Chris and I try to do is to communicate openly. We reiterate that there aren't rules to this. We have a lot of love and friendship, and our big goal is to protect Jack. I cherish my family, my close friends, my child-that makes the rest of it worth it."
Anna has been with screenwriter Michael Barrett since October 2017, according to People.
June 2018: Katherine and Chris first met.
According to People, Katherine's mom, Maria Shriver, introduced the adorable couple in June 2018.
October 2018: Chris's divorce was finalized.
His divorce with ex-wife Anna Faris was finalized in October 2018, per People.
October 2018: Katherine spent Halloween with Chris and his son.
Chris and Katherine have been open about spending time together with Chris's 6-year-old son Jack. They were photographed on Halloween trick-or-treating with him, along with Anna and Michael, according to People.
Christmas 2018: The couple celebrated Katherine's birthday.
Chris shared his first photos with Katherine on his Instagram right before Christmas 2018, captioning the photo with "Happy Birthday Chief! 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.♥️🍾🎉🎂"
January 2019: Chris and Katherine got engaged!
On January 14, Chris proposed to Katherine (with a seriously gorgeous ring, btw) and shared the news with his Instagram followers in the sweetest way.
"Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes! I’m thrilled to be marrying you. Proud to live boldly in faith with you. Here we go! 💍🙏♥️."
Since then, Katherine told Entertainment Tonight that planning their wedding has been a total team effort (even with Chris's seriously busy movie-shooting schedule). "I mean, I feel like we're all really involved in wedding planning," she said. “I think that, for me, my family is very involved. I'm very involved, [Chris is] very involved so it's a great combination of everything and just a really exciting and fun [time]."
April 2019: Chris and Katherine made their red carpet debut at the Avengers: Endgame premiere.
The newly engaged couple was all smiles and laughs as they walked the red carpet (okay, **technically** purple carpet) at the premiere of Chris's latest movie, Avengers: Endgame. Chris is reprising his role as Peter Quill/Star-Lord for the newest installment fo the Marvel franchise, after playing the character in the Guardians of the Galaxy films and Avengers: Infinity War.
No matter what role he's playing, Katherine is always supportive of her fiancé. When Lego Movie 2: The Second Part (for which Chriss voices protagonist Emmet) premiered, she took to Instagram to gush over her soon-to-be hubby's work ethic. "So incredibly proud of my amazing, talented and hardworking fiancé everyday, but especially today because his movie, THE LEGO MOVIE 2, IS FINALLY OUT!" she wrote. "These special little characters... Emmet and Rex are voiced by my love, and he did such a great job!"
Congrats to the happy couple.
