Chris Pratt's engagement to Katherine Schwarzenegger (yep - as in daughter of Arnie) has been all we can think about this week. The Jurassic World actor popped the question over the weekend to his gorgeous girlfriend, and the couple announced the news on Instagram with a touching photo.

Chris wrote, 'Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes! I’m thrilled to be marrying you. Proud to live boldly in faith with you. Here we go! 💍🙏♥️', whilst Katherine shared the same photo with the caption, 'My sweet love. Wouldn’t want to live this life with anyone but you ♥️💍.' [sic]

Fans were overjoyed for the couple, and even Chris' ex-wife Anna Faris - who he was officially divorced from three months ago - commented on the photo to wish the couple congratulations.

Now, a video has been unearthed of Katherine admitting she fancied Chris a year before she met him, despite being introduced to the actor by her mother, Maria Shriver, last June.

In the clip, Katherine can be seen chatting away to Access Hollywood - and when asked to choose between Chris Pratt, Chris Hemsworth or Chris Evans, she instantly picked Chris Evans, before quickly changing her mind, "‘Chris Pratt’s been looking good lately, so, you never know!"
