It was only a few weeks until 2019, when the first big celebrity engagement news from the New Year broke down: actor Chris Pratt revealed that he had proposed girlfriend Katherine Schwarzenegger, the 29-year-old author, also known as the daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger. The couple had been dating for less than a year when they made their big announcement and, in addition to some photos taken together, they pretty much kept their relationship details private. Although obsessed with the details of the potential marriage, there is one detail that everyone has imagined from day one: how exactly did this couple find themselves in the first place?

As it turns out, Pratt and Schwarzenegger apparently owe their relationship to none other than their mother! Schwarzenegger's mother, journalist and author, Maria Shriver, was allegedly behind the couple's reunion.

"Maria helped set them up," said an anonymous source close to the couple People in June 2018. The revelation came shortly after the pair's relationship became more public, when Schwarzenegger was seen passing Father's Day with Pratt. Shriver and Pratt, both being media figures, had some friends in common, which apparently led Shriver to approach and try to mount him with his daughter. Specific details about the timeline or the exact nature of the configuration have not been revealed publicly.

Although the June 2018 date was the first time the general public realized Pratt and Schwarzenegger were an item, the couple apparently dated for a while before being seen together for the first time. AND! News reported (again from an anonymous source) that they had been on "several dates" before that and were "talking consistently … for about two months or more." The source also added that "both really like each other." Besides, Pratt already had his mother's seal of approval!

"Maria is very excited about Katherine, everyone's got their fingers crossed for this to work out in the long run, they think Chris is an amazing guy and a great catch," he said. AND! source continued. "They are really perfect together and have similar goals and values, they got serious quickly."

Schwarzenegger was Pratt's first public relationship after his separation from ex-wife Anna Faris. In 2017, Pratt and Faris announced their separation after nine years of marriage, and their divorce was finalized in early 2018. The ex-couple shares the custody of their son, Jack, and it seems that Schwarzenegger has already integrated his family unit: she and Pratt, along with Faris and her boyfriend Michael Barrett, took Jack with a trick or treat on Halloween.

Pratt and Schwarzenegger's relationship changed very quickly. In January, People He reported that the couple had moved in together, and a post on Pratt's Instagram (subtitled "I Love Moving!") Apparently confirmed this news. Just a few weeks later, he announced his engagement, with another Instagram post that said, "Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes! I'm so happy to marry you." Proud of living boldly in faith with you. "If Pratt and Schwarzenegger's love story can teach us just one thing, it's never to disregard the person your mother wants to devote herself to!
