Chris and Katherine decided to do New Year’s big in a warm country. They jetted off to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for a romantic getaway. Why ring in January in the cold if you can do it in a swimsuit? It seems like a lot happened on this tropical trip, because their next relationship milestone two weeks later is monumental.

Just two days later, the wedding planning begins! They wanted a summer wedding that either took place in California (where her dad is governor) and Martha’s Vineyard, a classically picturesque wedding destination. They wanted the ceremony to be big, lavish, and traditional.

We can’t keep up with these two! Just a week after announcing their new engagement, Katherine Schwarzenegger moved out of her home in Santa Monica, LA, and into his home with his Chevrolet truck. Usually, couples live together before marriage, but we wonder if these two opted out for religious reasons, which seems to be important to both of them.

For a wedding this big, we would have expected it to take place in 2020. But these two expedited the event and got married at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California. Christ Pratt and his son arrived on a golf cart, in his classic brand of comedy, while Katherine wore a strapless Armani gown complete with a huge train.
In an interview, Chris said he wanted “lots of kids” and it looks like that journey is finally beginning for this couple. In April 2020, People Magazine confirmed the couple’s pregnancy, which accurately followed up a source telling them how Chris and Katherine wanted to “expand their family” ASAP.
