On Monday, we started the week with quite a surprise when it was revealed that Chris Pratt recently got down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend of less-than-a-year, author Katherine Schwarzenegger. It was less than a few months since the ink dried on his divorce papers with Anna Faris, and there were many people who were wondering how The House Bunny actress felt about her famous ex-husband's recent proposal. As it turns out, Faris opted to take the high road, congratulating Schwarzenegger and Pratt on the news and saying that she was very happy for the engaged couple.
While Anna Faris didn't make an official comment about the engagement news, she was found commenting on Chris Pratt's Instagram post. As it was reported by the Instagram account Comments By Celebs, fittingly enough, she extended her congratulations to the newly engaged couple by saying:
When the engagement news made its rounds on the Internet yesterday, there were many fans asking what Anna Faris thought of this news. It was so widely asked that Anna Faris was trending on Twitter throughout the day, thanks to curious bystanders wondering if he was upset or hurt by the engagement. It turns out, however, that she is taking the news well. That, or Faris is doing a good job of making it seem like she is overjoyed for her ex-husband and co-parent.
So, it appears that there are no hard feelings. Nobody seems to be hurt by this recent engagement news. That's certainly a relief for fans of the couple.
It was back in September of 2017 when Anna Faris and Chris Pratt announced they were separating. Throughout the year that proceeded, the celebrity couple reportedly tried to figure out a way to get some distance, while still remaining interconnected in each other's lives for the sake of their 6-year-old son, Jack.
It seemingly very important for both parties that the parents stay connected so that their son could have both parents in his life. For instance, they reportedly decided to live close to one another and they are going to stay in each other's lives until Jack is at least 12. While their romantic relationship may have ended, it seems the famous ex-couple is their parenting partnership intact.
But when it comes to their romantic lives, Anna Faris and Chris Pratt have since moved on. The famous couple seems to have opted to keep their relationships a secret from the press, especially since their marriage was often the source of scrutiny by the public-- particularly when Chris Pratt rose into superstardom. It was just last month in December when Pratt confirmed that he was in a relationship with Katherine Schwarzenegger, and now they are engaged to be married.
There were surely be new developments that arise in the ongoing relationship between Katherine Schwarzenegger and Chris Pratt. We'll be sure to keep you posted on what will happen between the happy couple throughout 2019. In the meantime, however, we're glad Anna Faris is happy with the big news. Or, at least, that she appears happy about the news. Though, one should think that she is probably okay with letting Chris Pratt go by now.
