Chris added two poignant Psalm verses to the end of his post.

The first, Psalm 126:3, said: ‘The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.’

The next, Psalm 127:3-4, was a bit longer, reading: ‘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.’

Katherine’ brother Patrick confirmed the birth to ET on Sunday, while at a market in Santa Barbara, CA.

‘They’re doing great — just got her a little gift,’ said the 26-year-old actor, who could be seen ‘carrying a package with a pink ribbon.’  

Birth rumors began when Katherine’s parents Maria Shriver, 64, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, 73, as well as the remaining Schwarzenegger siblings, paid a visit to Katherine and Chris’ residence on Friday.

Maria returned later that day to spend some more quality time with her daughter, who may or may not have given birth sometime that day. 

According to ET’s source, Chris was reportedly seen at a Santa Monica-area hospital on Friday.

The couple’s pregnancy was confirmed by Maria on May 1, when Pratt appeared as a guest on her Instagram Live series #HomeTogether.

‘You’re gonna have another beautiful family member,’ said Shriver to Pratt at the time.

Days later, Katherine was spotted for the first time with a visible baby bump, while out walking her dog.

Though this is Schwarzenegger’s first child, Pratt already shares a seven-year-old son Jack with ex wife Anna Faris, 43.

News of Katherine’s pregnancy came just 10-months after her wedding to Chris, which took place in June of 2019.

He had proposed to Katherine in January of that year, less than a year after they began dating in June of 2018.

He continued: ‘Top of the mountain today. Kinda grateful it didn’t go down on the trail tho to be real.’

On Friday, Katherine’s dad Arnold expressed to Fox 11 that ‘it’s going to be really, really exciting’ becoming a grandfather for the first time.

Chris and Katherine were first linked in 2018, after they were spotted canoodling in Santa Barbara, CA.  

Seven months prior, Chris filed for divorce from wife Anna Faris after eight-years of marriage, citing ‘irreconcilable differences,’ according to TMZ. They asked for joint custody of their son Jack who was five-years-old at the time.

Chris and Katherine made their first PDA in July of 2018, followed by numerous family hangouts with the Schwarzenegger’s and the Pratt’s, which were documented on social media.  

The couple did not confirm their relationship status until December of 2018, a little over a month after Chris’ divorce from Anna was finalized, as reported by E! News.

The confirmation came in the form of ‘Happy Birthday’ post from Chris to Katherine, which included a photo collage of the brunette beauty.

‘Happy Birthday Chief! 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,’ wrote the Parks And Rec alum.

‘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!’ captioned Pratt.
