In the year since Chris Pratt and Anna Faris broke off their marriage, there has only been speculation as far as what was happening in the Jurassic World actor's dating life. Pratt is reportedly on good terms with his former partner, but it was clear that the celebrity couple moved on, and they were each looking for love elsewhere. Now that the ink has officially dried on their divorce papers, Pratt is ready to confirm his relationship status to his new girlfriend Katherine Schwarzenegger. In a heartfelt post dedicated to her birthday and the love they share, Pratt posted the following dedication to his new partner:
The lovely Instagram message is the first time many followers will know that 29-year-old Katherine Schwarzenegger and 39-year-old Chris Pratt are romantically intertwined. And it looks like they've been dating for a little while, even if I was just basing on the close-and-intimate pictures provided in the social media-posted collage. There's no doubt from these photos that the actor and the author are affectionate and the rumor mill has run rampant with speculation about them spending time together since June or July.
Details about the relationship will likely come out in the months to come, although there are no confirmation details are available at this time, so we're only left to speculate as far as when Pratt and Schwarzenegger decided to get together; if the summer love timestamp is true, the couple took pains to keep their dating life private.
For those who might not be familiar with Katherine Schwarzenegger, she is the author of two books: 2010's Rock What You've Got: Secrets to Loving Your Inner and Outer Beauty from Someone Who's Been There and Back, which she published before graduating college, and 2014's I Just Graduated . . . Now What? Schwarzenegger is also the author of 2017's children's book Maverick and Me, based on the survival dog she rescued. As you might've guessed from her last name, she is the eldest daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver. She is also the grandniece of John F. Kennedy.
Meanwhile, Chris Pratt is going to remain closely invested in Anna Faris' life for the sake of their young son, 6-year-old Jack Pratt. In their divorce papers, Faris and Pratt agreed to live no further than five miles apart from each other -- at least, for the next five years. They want to remain close-knit to each other -- even if they are not romantically interconnected -- until Jack is 12. It's unclear what is set to happen between them after that time, but it's clear that, despite their separation and their world-famous notoriety, both parents are looking out for the best interest of their only child together.
