Katherine Schwarzenegger knows a lot of famous people. The author is the daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, and she is currently engaged to Chris Pratt. Clearly, her phone list includes a celebrity or two. And sure enough, when it came time for her wedding shower, she found herself in the presence of some very famous people, including none other than Oprah Winfrey herself. That's right; Katherine Schwarzenegger had Oprah attend her wedding shower. Very few people can say that, and she's one of those very few people.
As it was reported by TMZ, Katherine Schwarzenegger was inviting a number of famous friends into her celebratory event. That counted some of her friends, Abby Champion and Whitney Port, but it also included Oprah, who showed up at the Saturday afternoon event with a big smile and a sizable present. As it turns out, Oprah and Maria Shriver have been friends for quite some time. Decades, in fact. Therefore, Oprah showed up on the exclusive guest list, and she certainly made a splash. Naturally, when you have Oprah at your party, things get turned up a notch.
Also in attendance at the wedding shower were Arnold Schwarzenegger and Chris Pratt, even though the latter is very busy doing promotional rounds for this past weekend's Avengers: Endgame. Normally, the father of the bride and the future groom don't show up at the wedding shower, but the actors made an exception. Their appearance made the shower even more celebrity-filled than it already was.
It has been an extremely busy weekend for Arnold Schwarzenegger as well. The actor and former politician was not only seen at his daughter's wedding shower, but in Malibu too. He was attending the college graduation of his son, Joseph Baena. Holy moly, that's a whole lot of family commitments for one man to have on one weekend — one whole day, in fact. Despite the tight time constrictions, however, Arnold Schwarzenegger apparently found a way to make it work anyhow.
It was back in January when Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger announced their engagement. The couple have kept their romance a secret from the public for the most part. In fact, it was only in December when Pratt formally announced that he was dating the member of Hollywood royalty. Since then, they've been planning the wedding, which is expected to happen sometime soon. Probably sometime this summer, if things go according to plan.
But it's not known for certain at this moment in time. Although there's a very good chance that when it happens, you'll hear about it here. Because chances are high that it'll be a big deal.
