Arnold Schwarzenegger Applauds Daughter on Faithful Parenting 

By Movieguide® Contributor 

Father of five, Arnold Schwarzenegger says daughter Katherine and her husband Chris Pratt are raising their children well.  

Schwarzenegger shared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, “It’s a beautiful, beautiful baby, baby Lyla, and I’m very proud of Katherine and Chris. And you know, they’re doing really great together as parents.” 

He added, “I think that Katherine is the expert gate-keeper. She just, you know – whenever you touch the baby, [she] says ‘Oh my god! Oh my god! Don’t hold her like this.’ I said, ‘Katherine, c’mon now. I have held enough children in my hands.’ I say, ‘What I’m doing, I’m an expert at that stuff.'” 

Movieguide® recently reported on Schwarzenegger’s praise to Pratt following the release of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3:  

People all over the world are praising GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3, but for star Chris Pratt, the support of his father-in-law and fellow actor Arnold Schwarzenegger is all he needs.  

Pratt married Schwarzenegger’s daughter Katherine in 2019. The couple share two daughters, Lyla and Eloise, as well as son Jack, from Pratt’s previous marriage.  

“Arnold’s support means the world to me on a couple different levels. Just being his son-in-law and being part of his family, it obviously means a lot to have his support,” Pratt shared. “But then on another level, just being somebody who grew up loving his movies, the big action hero – I dreamed of being COMMANDO and dreamed of being the soldier from PREDATOR, and I loved TERMINATOR.” 

He continued, “So for him to give me kudos for going out and being on the marquee is really kind of mind-blowing.” 

Schwarzenegger took to Twitter to praise GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3, writing that Pratt “crushed it” and that he was “very,very proud” of his son-in-law.
