Chris Pratt on the Birth of his Daughter: ‘We are Extremely Blessed’

By Allyson Vannatta, Senior Writer

Congratulations are in order for Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt!

The couple welcomed Lyla Maria Schwarzenegger Pratt to the world, both announcing the news on their Instagram accounts with a photo of them holding hands with their baby girl.

“We are beyond thrilled to announce the birth of our daughter, Lyla Maria Schwarzenegger Pratt,” Chris wrote.“We couldn’t be happier. Both mom and baby are doing great. We are extremely blessed.”

The actor included two scriptures with his post.

The first is Psalm 126:3, “The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.”

Followed by Psalm 127:3-4 “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.”

The first-time mother also posted a similar picture to her Instagram that reads, “We couldn’t be happier and we feel extremely blessed!”

Christian celebs Jason Kennedy, Mario Lopez, DeVon Franklin, Zachary Levi, and Lauren Daigle all commented on the couple’s posts, sending their congratulations.

A source told Entertainment Tonight on Monday,

“Katherine and Chris welcomed their first child together, a girl. The couple is so excited for their new addition and have been showered with love from their family and friends. Chris was there for the the birth and the couple can’t stop taking their eyes off their daughter. Katherine and Chris are doing well and Katherine is enjoying the experience of being a first-time mother.”

“Giving birth was such a special moment for Katherine,” the source added. “She was overcome with emotions when she first held her daughter and was so thankful to have Chris there. Everything is new for Katherine and she’s glad Chris is there to help her through everything.”

Lyla is Chris’ second child. He shares his 7-year-old son, Jack, with ex-wife Anna Farris.
