“We are beyond thrilled to announce the birth of our daughter, Lyla Maria Schwarzenegger Pratt,” the actor, 41, captioned a photo of his newborn’s hand. “We couldn’t be happier. Both mom and baby are doing great. We are extremely blessed. Love Katherine and Chris.”
The Gift of Forgiveness author’s brother Patrick Schwarzenegger broke the news on Sunday, August 9. “They’re doing great — just got her a little gift,” the Midnight Sun star, 26, told Entertainment Tonight.
The outlet also reported that the Parks of Recreation alum’s car was seen at a Santa Monica hospital on Friday, August 7.
News broke in April that he and the “Dog That Changed Me” podcast host had a little one on the way. Pratt is also the father of his and Anna Faris’ 7-year-old son, Jack.
“Chris is so excited and so is older brother-to-be Jack!” a source exclusively told Us Weekly on Wednesday, August 5. “Jack talks about it to his dad and Katherine. He’s so excited for a sibling and his family growing.”
The little one and his stepmom “are close and have a tight bond,” the insider added at the time, noting that Schwarzenegger was “feeling great” ahead of her infant’s arrival.
“She’s still walking and doing little workouts, she loves being on the go,” the source explained. “She feels great for the most part for being close to the baby coming and she’s so excited to be a mom.”

I think [I want to spend] just a lot of time at the farm and a lot of time catching a lot of fish and seeing lots of sunsets.”
