Sep 27 2023 - 12:15pm

Katherine Schwarzenegger and Chris Pratt's romance dates back to 2018, when they were first romantically linked [1]. From there, the pair went on to get engaged, marry, and welcome two children [2] together, who joined Pratt's son, Jack, from his previous marriage to Anna Faris [3]. Their love story is one they're not shy about sharing, with Pratt telling Drew Barrymore in a July 2023 interview [4] that he met his now-wife at church when he was "struggling and felt really broken."

Noting that they didn't start dating right after meeting, Pratt shared: "God has a fast-forward button. When it's right, boom. You fall in love, you get married. Now we have two beautiful daughters to add to my family."

Of how things worked out with him and Schwarzenegger, the actor added, "My own journey, finding a higher power and leaning on that and being like, 'please save me,' and then feeling saved. And then shortly later finding the woman of my dreams."

While their story may have begun at church, over the years, the two have taken their love on the road to red carpets, vacations, and more. Take a look back at their relationship timeline ahead.
