Chris Pratt‘s wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger-Pratt, is his “hero” after this year. In an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he explains how she “got pregnant just before the pandemic struck. I’m telling you, that is not easy. For any new moms who had to go through that and do that, it’s tough.”
He was very sympathetic toward his wife’s added difficulty due to the pandemic.
He told Ellen how “you can’t bring anyone to these doctor appointments [and when] you go in to give birth to your baby, they’re like, ‘Do you have your mask?’ It’s hard. It’s made everything a lot harder, but especially, I think, childbirth and pregnancy cause obviously you’re concerned about your own health, but now when you have, like, a little infant around. It just adds a whole new degree of stress.”
He continued by saying, “But she handled it so well, she never missed a beat. She’s my hero … She’s a fantastic woman. I’m a lucky man.”
Katherine and Chris Pratt had their first child in August.
Chris Pratt also has a 9-year-old son, Jack, from his previous marriage with Anna Faris, but Lyla is the pair’s first child together. They introduced her to the world in an Instagram post captioned, “We are beyond thrilled to announce the birth of our daughter Lyla Maria Schwarzenegger Pratt. We couldn’t be happier and we feel extremely blessed! Love, Katherine and Chris.”
When Ellen asked about his Mother’s Day plans were for his wife Pratt panicked.
But, he quickly showed that he was joking and revealed, “I found her this really old photograph taken by Andy Warhol, who I found out is a photographer that people like his stuff. It’s expensive, so that makes it nice, I guess.”
The price tag wasn’t the most important part about the gift though. Evidently Warhol “did photographs and he had done a photograph of her mother some 20, 30, 40 years ago — I don’t know when this photo was taken — but [it was] this beautiful photo that I found. And I was able to buy that photo. I had it framed and gave it to her for Mother’s Day.”
