Katherine Schwarzenegger declared that faith is a “huge” part of her marriage to movie star Chris Pratt.
“[Faith] is a huge part of our relationship and also just a huge part of our lives,” Schwarzenegger said on Fox and Friends.
Pratt, who’s an outspoken believer, recently opened up about how his wife makes him a better person. The pair were married in the summer of 2019.

Yesterday was the best day of our lives! We became husband and wife in front of God, our families and those we love. It was intimate, moving and emotional. We feel so blessed to begin this new chapter of our lives. We are so thankful to our families and our friends who stood with us, and grateful to Mr Giorgio Armani, who created a once in a lifetime dress for me to wear, and for Chris, the perfect suit. This morning we feel nothing but blessed.
Schwarzenegger included her faith in her first book, The Gift of Forgiveness.
Schwarzenegger said, “I grew up with faith being a huge part of my family’s life as well. [Faith] is a huge part of the forgiveness process and healing process in life in general so if you are able to have [faith] to rely on and lean on it’s a great gift.”
The Gift of Forgiveness was Schwarzenegger’s pursuit of how forgiveness operates and how it might look different to individuals. The new author said of her findings:
“I was so blessed to have people open up to me in a way that was such a huge gift and will be a gift to everyone who reads this book,” she explained. Schwarzenegger revealed she spoke with people such as Elizabeth Smart and Nicole Brown Simpson’s sister in interviews about their forgiveness journeys and learned that everyone’s process is different and that there is no “right or wrong way” to forgive.
“I have a really good collection of people who have practiced forgiveness and struggled with forgiveness in different ways,” she added. “Forgiveness is such a unique topic. It was important to me to have a good variety of different experiences.”
Throughout Schwarzenegger’s book tour and writing process, her JURASSIC WORLD star husband has been a great support.
