After the marriage of Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger in June last year, they have another good news to announce. The couple’s pregnancy was already reported in one of the news portals, confirming it four months ago.
And last Monday, the excited parents shared on Instagram an overwhelming photo of the couple holding the hands of their newborn baby. The baby’s name was also revealed in their Instagram posts.
“We are beyond thrilled to announce the birth of our daughter, Lyla Maria Schwarzenegger Pratt. We couldn’t be happier. Both mom and baby are doing great. We are extremely blessed,” the “Jurassic Park" actor said and quoting several bible verses.

We are beyond thrilled to announce the birth of our daughter, Lyla Maria Schwarzenegger Pratt. We couldn’t be happier. Both mom and baby are doing great. We are extremely blessed. Love Katherine and Chris Psalm 126:3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. Psalm 127:3-4 Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
The baby’s name is kind of special as it took after Katherine’s famous mother, Maria Shriver. The proud grandmother of Lyla Maria wrote a comment on her daughter’s post saying, “So happy for you, Lyla Maria is so blessed to have you both as parents, you are going to be an amazing mama you already are!!!”
On the other hand, Lyla’s grandfather, who is a well-known actor, shared his thoughts about being a grandfather when he appeared on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.
Arnold Schwarzenegger said that he is “looking forward” to be a grandfather and that he was excited to “have some fun.” Katherine is the first child of Arnold who had her first baby besides having Pratt’s 7-year-old son, Jack, with Anna Faris.
“Yeah, can you believe that? I mean, that is really exciting news that Katherine now, you know, be pregnant and have a baby – I don’t know when exactly. Sometimes this summer. And, inevitably, I’m really looking forward to playing around with whatever it is, she or he, and have some fun,” the 72-year-old actor said on the show.
