“We are beyond thrilled to announce the birth of our daughter, Lyla Maria Schwarzenegger Pratt,” the Guardians of the Galaxy star captioned his baby girl’s Instagram debut at the time. “We couldn’t be happier. Both mom and baby are doing great. We are extremely blessed. Love Katherine and Chris.”
Lyla’s arrival marked the Minnesota native’s second round of fatherhood, as Pratt previously welcomed son Jack in August 2012 with his then-wife, Anna Faris. While he and the House Bunny star haven’t shied away from showing him on social media over the years, Pratt and Schwarzenegger keep their daughters’ faces covered with emojis.
The Kennedy family member did, however, give Us Weekly an exclusive update on Lyla’s milestones in November 2021, saying that something “new” happened with her every week.
“She’s starting to talk more,” the Los Angeles native gushed at the time of her “friendly” daughter. “She’s obviously getting more mobile with walking and growing up so much. It’s amazing to see. She’s doing all the different animal noises and things like that. When she sees [our dog], Maverick, she’ll make dog noises. It’s sweet to see her, first as a pet parent and now as a parent to my daughter, grow up and hit all these fun, cute milestones.”
Lyla was becoming a “total animal lover,” just like her mom, Schwarzenegger went on to say, adding, “It’s really sweet to see her with Maverick and see their relationship blossom. Especially as she gets more mobile, I see how excited she gets and how she likes to walk him around. It just totally warms my heart. I love it.”
Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s daughter and the Parks and Recreation alum welcomed their second daughter, Eloise, in May 2022. “We feel beyond blessed and grateful,” the glowing parents shared via Instagram at the time.
