They’re taking another step forward in their relationship! On Friday, People reported that newly engaged couple Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger are officially living together, which is a big deal as they move toward sharing their lives together in a more permanent way. Pratt apparently helped Schwarzenegger move out of her Santa Monica home on Friday, when he shared a (sponsored) Instagram video of the day and captioned it, “I love moving!!”
A source told People, “Since they started dating, Katherine has taken Chris to all of her favorite neighborhood places. And Chris clearly likes her neighborhood.” Additional sources speaking to Entertainment Tonight also noted that, interestingly, the engaged lovebirds are living close to Pratt’s ex, Anna Faris, so that Pratt and Faris can continue to coparent their son, Jack.
Pratt and Schwarzenegger got engaged after about seven months of dating, per People, and much of their connection is faith-based. A source told the outlet, “They click on a lot of levels, but definitely on a spiritual level. They have the same outlook on the world, and their faith ties them together.” The source added, “He’s really impressed that she’s vocal and unashamed about her beliefs in God because that’s how he is. He’s constantly around other people who have no faith or are apologetic about it, but not her. She is willing to talk about it to anyone who will listen.”

I love moving!! Picking up heavy things and moving them into the back of a truck was my major in college! (Full disclosure Chris Pratt did not go to a moving college but he did went to community college for a hot second). Point being… Need a dryer moved? Call Chris. Almost nobody in LA even has a truck so every time they have something to move they call me. Hey Chris, you still got that truck? “Oh hell yeah!!! Now I have a brand new truck thanks to @chevrolet !” DM me with your location and what you need moved and I will be over very soon in my new Silverado. #sponsored #ad
Although it may seem like the pair are moving fast, People further reported that those who are close to the couple don’t think the pacing of their relationship is wrong at all. Pratt and Schwarzenegger were first introduced by her mother, Maria Shriver, with whom Pratt reportedly already had a relationship through mutual friends.
“They never had a typical relationship,” an insider told People. “It very much helped that Chris already knew Maria. They didn’t have to take things slowly because they were getting to know each other’s families. Katherine’s family instantly treated Chris like a family member.”
It certainly seems like Pratt has had the Schwarzenegger seal of approval for a few years now. It recently came to light that back in 2015, Schwarzenegger’s father, Arnold Schwarzenegger (in case you forgot), couldn’t help but gush about Pratt on Twitter. The action star and former California governor retweeted Pratt after he visited The Late Late Show and signed the chalk wall right next to Arnold, then posted about it.
Arnold wrote, “I’m right next to friggin’ CHRIS PRATT. Congrats on the monster opening weekend, @prattprattpratt. You deserve it.”
Per People, Pratt and Arnold maintained a friendly relationship after that fateful interaction; both Arnold and Shriver gave Pratt their blessing before he proposed to Katherine. The two are reportedly planning a summer wedding. We’re happy for them!
