For Katherine Schwarzenegger’s 29th birthday this year, Chris Pratt gave her the gift of making their 7-month relationship official on Instagram. Schwarzenegger, who has the same exact birthday as Taylor Swift, has been dating Pratt since April. His six-photo birthday tribute to her this evening made it clear just how close they have become privately since they first got together. “Happy Birthday Chief!” he wrote. “Your smile lights up the room. I’ve cherished our time together. Thrilled God put you in my life. Thankful for the laughs, kisses, talks, hikes, love and care.”
Schwarzenegger had her own heartfelt response to his photo collage. “I love you,” she wrote, with three heart emojis. It’s the first time she has publicly acknowledged their romance on her own social media.
Schwarzenegger and Pratt’s relationship has hardly been secret. The two have been photographed out several times on dates. At the end of November, Us Weekly reported that “they’ll be engaged soon.”
And a month earlier in October, E! reported that Pratt and Schwarzenegger were contemplating moving in together. A source told E! then that they were planning to make the move “sometime in the near future.” Pratt sees “a very serious future with Katherine,” the source said at the time. “They just love each other’s company and it’s not slowing down anytime soon.”
