Katherine Schwarzenegger, 30, and Chris Pratt, 41, have welcomed their first baby together, four months after they first shared their pregnancy news.

The baby’s arrival was announced by Schwarzenegger’s brother Patrick, who told ET Online the couple were “doing great”.

Schwarzenegger and Pratt married in June 2019 after a six-month engagement.

Their new baby is Schwarzenegger’s first, while Pratt also has a seven-year-old son, Jack, with his ex-wife Anna Faris, 43.

On Friday 7 August, the new mum’s father Arnold, 73, said to Fox 11 that it was going to be “really, really exciting” to welcome a new member of the family and his first grandchild.

It was Schwarzenegger’s mother Maria Shriver, 64, who initially announced the couple’s baby news on 1 May. She hinted at the pregnancy by saying “you’re going to have another beautiful family member”, after Pratt appeared on her Instagram Live series #HomeTogether.

On 1 August, Pratt posted a photo of himself and Schwarzenegger on an Instagram Story showing them on a hike in Los Angeles with the caption “ready to pop, still don’t stop”.

Schwarzenegger wore all-black leggings and a T-shirt, which accentuated her “ready to pop” bump.

Pratt proposed in January 2019 and the pair were married in June the same year.

The couple were first seen together in June 2018, almost a year after Pratt and Faris decided to “legally separate”.

In a statement, Pratt wrote: “Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed.

“Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another.”
