Katherine Schwarzenegger's Mom, Maria Shriver, Reacts To Her Daughter's Unexpected Engagement

Date January 17, 2019

It all happened so fast! It seems like Chris Pratt divorced his ex-wife Anna Faris only yesterday, but in reality, The Guardians of the Galaxy hero is already engaged to his new sweetheart, Katherine Schwarzenegger.

The couple officially announced their relationship in December. And a few days ago, the actor revealed that he was ready to devote his life to the Terminator’s daughter by sharing a sweet photo with the caption:

Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes! I’m thrilled to be marrying you. Proud to live boldly in faith with you.

But how did Katherine’s mom react to such unexpected news?

Maria Shriver is absolutely supportive of the engagement, and she is looking forward to the day her daughter will be walking down the aisle. The proud mom quickly commented on Pratt’s post:

Congratulations to two loving kind caring thoughtful Spiritual people. We are so happy for you you are blessed as is everyone who knows you yes let’s go.

But she won’t reveal any details about it. Why so? The ex-wife of Arnold Schwarzenegger (actually, the two are still married despite a 7-year divorce process) explained to PEOPLE:

I am not going to talk about it because it isn’t even like eight hours old, so I’m just trying to let them direct. It isn’t about me. So I’m going to follow their lead.

Another adorable reaction

Chris’ ex-wife Anna also had a few warm words for him and his beloved. How nice it is that the two remained on good terms even after separating in 2017.
