A big action movie star is now engaged to the daughter of one of the biggest action movie stars of all. Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt, 39, announced on Instagram that he and Katherine Schwarzenegger, 29, will marry, reports People. Schwarzenegger is the eldest daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver. In fact, it was Shriver who introduced them in June. “Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes! I’m thrilled to be marrying you. Proud to live boldly in faith with you. Here we go!" wrote Pratt, who has a 6-year-old son with ex Anna Faris.

The reference to "faith" in the Instagram post appears to be an important part of the relationship. In December, Pratt wrote of Schwarzenegger that he was "thrilled God put you in my life," reports E! Online. And Pratt is currently in the midst of something called the Daniel Fast, which Entertainment Tonight explains is a 21-day fast that focuses on prayer. Schwarzenegger, notes the AP, is the author of the 2017 children’s book Maverick and Me and the positive self-image book Rock What You’ve Got: Secrets to Loving Your Inner and Outer Beauty from Someone Who’s Been There and Back.
