Chris Pratt Was 'A Little Nervous' Asking Arnold Schwarzenegger For Katherine's Hand in Marriage

Asking someone's father for permission to marry their daughter can be quite the intimidating task—just ask Chris Pratt. The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part star revealed he was riddled with a case of nerves upon asking his fiancé Katherine Schwarzenegger's father for her hand in marriage. To make matters even more daunting, Schwarzenegger's dad, Arnold Schwarzenegger, is not only the former governor of California but he once held the title of The Terminator too.

"Any person who appreciates a tradition and asks a father for his daughter's hand in marriage, it's inevitably going to be something that makes you a little nervous," Pratt told Extra on Saturday. "But that's the sort of the beauty of it, you know?"

Obviously, Arnold Schwarzenegger was more than happy to approve Pratt's request. The 39-year-old actor announced his engagement to author Katherine Schwarzenegger, 29, in January, with a heartfelt post on Instagram. "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," he wrote alongside a photo of the couple embracing.

More than likely, Pratt had nothing major to worry about when asking Schwarzenegger's permission to marry his daughter in the first place. The retired actor has been a longtime fan of Pratt's.

Shortly after the couple's engagement was announced, an old tweet written by Arnold Schwarzenegger resurfaced online, in which the Total Recall star applauded Pratt's successful Jurassic World film. "I'm right next to friggin' CHRIS PRATT. Congrats on the monster opening weekend, @prattprattpratt. You deserve it," Arnold Schwarzenegger tweeted in June 2015.

Arnold Schwarzenegger recently gushed over his soon-to-be son-in-law during an interview with Extra. "As I said to him, he is such a likable guy," the 71-year-old said when asked his thoughts on his daughter's fiancé.

"I love Chris. He's fantastic. He's a wonderful guy. They both look really great together. They're both happy together, so I wish them both the best of luck," he continued.
