Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger welcome baby girl Lyla Maria Schwarzenegger Pratt, share her first photo


Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger have welcomed their first child, a daughter today. They have also revealed the name of their newborn daughter. Sharing the first photo of their bundle of joy, they announced her birth and the name- Lyla Maria Schwarzenegger Pratt. Pratt took to social media to share the first picture with the birth announcement and wrote, “We are beyond thrilled to announce the birth of our daughter, Lyla Maria Schwarzenegger Pratt. We couldn’t be happier. Both mom and baby are doing great. We are extremely blessed. Love Katherine and Chris.”

Quoting the Bible, he further wrote, “Psalm 126:3. The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. Psalm 127:3-4. Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.”

The baby’s middle name seems to be a nod to Katherine’s mother Maria Shriver who also commented on her daughter’s post and wrote, “So happy for you Lyla Maria is so blessed to have you both as parents you are going to be a amazing mama you already are !!!" Katherine’s brother Patrick Schwarzenegger commented with heart emoticons.

He also confirmed the news in a video shared by an online portal saying that his sister and brother-in-law were “doing great”. He added, “Just got her a little gift,” showing a little box wrapped with a pink bow. Another portal quoted a source that said, “They knew they were having a girl and were thrilled about it. Kat had a good pregnancy and she is hoping for a quick recovery. So far, so good. She (Katherine) is going through all the first-time mom emotions. She is extremely happy, but a bit tired and overwhelmed. Chris keeps being amazing though. It's comforting for Kat that he is already a dad and understands how it is to have a newborn. As soon as Katherine and the baby got home from the hospital, Maria and Arnold Schwarzenegger visited. They are both proud grandparents of course. They also visited over the weekend. Maria is making sure that Kat has everything she needs.”

Lyla is Katherine’s first child while Chris shares a son Jack with ex-wife Anna Faris.
