It’s no secret that these two became fast friends after Pratt and Katherine wed. Speaking with Fox 11 in August, the former California governor called Pratt “a fantastic son-in-law.”

“He’s very, very disciplined with his work, he’s wonderful to Katherine, and to Maria [Shriver], and to me, and we have a great relationship with him, he’s really a great, great guy,” Arnold said at the time.

Months after Pratt and Katherine’s wedding, Arnold appeared on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! where he gushed about the union.

“First of all, I’m really happy that he is such a great guy,” Arnold said in October 2019. “Not only a very talented guy and a great actor and a great star and all this stuff, but a really kind man and kind to my daughter, which is the most important thing for me.”
