On Sunday, actor Chris Pratt and wife Katherine Schwarzenegger announced the birth of their new daughter, Eloise Christina Schwarzenegger Pratt. The couple, who posted nearly-identical statements on social media, didn’t provide too many details, but the announcement was met with joy and congratulations from many.

“We are so excited to announce the birth of our second daughter, Eloise Christina Schwarzenegger Pratt,” Pratt wrote. “Mama and baby are doing well. We feel beyond blessed and grateful.” Fellow celebrities weighed in on the joyous news. Actor Zachary Levi commented, “Congrats, brother! Sending love and light to y’all!” And “Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot added, “Mazal tov! Congrats.”

Maria Shriver, Pratt’s mother-in-law, also commented, “We are so blessed. Bravo, congrats, lucky Eloise.” Pratt and Schwarzenegger, the daughter of Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger, also have another child named Lyla, who was born in 2020.

The “Guardians of the Galaxy” star also has a 9-year-old son named Jack with his ex-wife Anna Faris. Pratt, known for his Christian faith, previously shared two Bible verses in August 2020 in an Instagram post announcing Lyla’s birth. After proclaiming the couple is blessed, Pratt shared the text of Psalm 126:3 and Psalm 127:3-4.

Psalm 126:3 says, “The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.” Psalm 127:3-4 reads, “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.”

Pratt has openly discussed the joys of fatherhood, telling E! last year that he’s open to having a bigger family and will have as many children as God allows. He said last summer, “I would love to have more, as many as the man upstairs will provide. We’ll do it. I’ll probably have to talk to Katherine about that, but my plan is, let’s go.”

In that same interview, Pratt revealed how he’s grown as a parent over the years. “I react maybe a little differently,” he admitted. “I don’t roughhouse quite as much as I did. I kind of just want to cuddle both of them.”

However, he revealed that one thing about being a dad had stayed the same: “The high common denominator is just kind of this unquenchable desire to want to be close to them, be next to them, to protect them and love them. It’s the best,” Pratt gushed. Adding another bundle of joy to your family is always a blessing. The Pratt family is blessed to have three healthy, beautiful children. As for any children in the future, Chris Pratt is open to the idea, yet he’s leaving it in God’s hands.

Chris Pratt may have been in the news recently over his Christian faith, but one thing that you can never deny is the love he has for his family. Many blessings to the Pratt family and their new bundle of joy.
