Katherine Schwarzenegger, daughter of former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, showed off her massive rock from fiance Chris Pratt at a Galentine’s Day party today.
Wait. Galentine’s Day?
It’s Wednesday, Feb. 13, so, yes Happy Galentine’s Day!
For those who might not be familiar with the unofficial holiday, the concept is pretty simple: Celebrating female friendships the day before the world becomes clogged with lovey-dovey Valentine’s Day.
The gal-pal day has gained steam in recent years, thanks to a 2010 episode of “Parks and Recreation.”
In the episode, Amy Poehler’s exuberant character, Leslie Knope, arranges a breakfast outing with her friends and mom, showering those gathered with hand-knit presents and 5,000-word essays on what makes them special.
“What’s Galentine’s Day? Oh, it’s only the best day of the year,” Knope says to the camera. “Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it breakfast style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair — minus the angst. Plus frittatas.”
Schwarzenegger, 29, sported a black crop top, leggings and sneakers to host the sponsored soiree, which took place at a Beverly Hills yoga studio and boasted guests including model and Justin Bieber ex Baskin Champion and “The Hills” star Whitney Port.
Her five carat ring was on full display for the party.
Pratt, 39, recently revealed that he and Schwarzenegger were looking into a fall or winter wedding and in January said he wanted to have “lots of kids” with his future bride.
In 2017, Schwarzenegger admitted in an interview that she had a crush on Pratt more than the other Marvel “Chrises” Hemsworth or Evans.
The couple announced their engagement last month, with the “Guardians of the Galaxy” star writing on Instagram, “Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes! I’m thrilled to be marrying you. Proud to live boldly in faith with you. Here we go!”
Arnold Schwarzenegger said he was happy with the news.
“That was really fantastic,” Arnold, 71, said last week. “She is so happy, they both are so happy. As I said to him, he is such a likable guy. I love Chris—he’s fantastic.”
It was known that Pratt had approached both of his girlfriend’s parents, Arnold and Maria Shriver, prior to proposing in their new home.
“He’s a wonderful guy,” Arnold said of the gesture. “They both look really great together, they’re both happy together, so I wish them both the best of luck.”
Pratt and Schwarzenegger were reportedly introduced by her mother, who met Pratt at church.
The actor has come under fire recently for his participation in the Hillsong ministry, which actress Ellen Page accused of being anti-LGBTQ.
Pratt denied that his worship had anything to do with bigotry.
