There are few things as exciting as hearing news that a couple is to be wed. From the moment she says, “Yes!” to her future husband, the fun instantly begins!
One of the most important aspects of an engagement isn’t the ring, the proposal, nor the happiness of the couple to be wed - it’s the family’s approval. Without this crucial aspect, it can certainly put a little bit of a damper on the celebrations for the bride and groom.
One of Hollywood’s biggest stars recently popped the question to his girlfriend who just so happens to have a seriously famous family. Renowned actor, Chris Pratt, asked his beautiful girlfriend, Katherine Schwarzenegger, to be his bride.
Her name, alone, gives away just who her super-famous father is - Arnold! It was only a matter of time before he came forward with his official opinion on his baby girl’s engagement. When he did, he took the world by utter surprise with his words.
The 71-year-old father sat down for an interview on Extra and gave his thoughts on the matter. “That was really fantastic. She is so happy, they both are so happy. As I said to him, he is such a likable guy. I love Chris - he’s fantastic.”
He continued, “Her’s a wonderful guy. They both look really great together, they’re both happy together, so I wish them both the best of luck.”
Pratt was said to have stuck with the tried and true tradition of asking his future bride’s parents for her hand in marriage before he proposed. This act, alone, flattered Arnold and his wife, Maria Shriver, in the best way possible.
Mama Maria also made a brief statement about Katherine’s news while making an appearance on The Today Show. “She’s super happy and gave me strict instructions not to talk about it. She said, ‘It’s not your moment.’ I’m like, ‘I’m clear.’ I have her that line!”
It’s so incredible to see a family come together in joy and happiness over such a wonderful occasion. We cannot wait to see what the future holds for the couple and wish them nothing but a lifetime of joy and happiness together!
