Katherine Schwarzenegger may now be married to Chris Pratt - but once upon a time he wasn't her go-to Chris.

The couple now have two children together, having tied the knot in 2019; however, a year before they started dating, Schwarzenegger - the eldest child of Arnie - chose Chris Evans over him.


Speaking to Access Hollywood back in 2017, the author was asked which Chris she liked best - Evans, Hemsworth or Pratt - and she immediately responded: "Evans."


But after blurting out her gut response, she decided to change her answer, plumping for her future husband.

"Actually Chris Pratt," she backtracked. "Chris Pratt has been looking good lately, so, you never know."


Fast-forward to this summer and Pratt was paying tribute to her on their third wedding anniversary.

In a post on Instagram, he wrote: "Happy Anniversary to my strong, gorgeous, smart, lovely, organized, tough, kind, compassionate, wife.

"I'm a lucky man. God is so good. The kids and I are so grateful to have you. You do so much to better our lives.

"Thank you. I love you. We love you!"


Pratt recently admitted he doesn't like being called Chris - perhaps 'cause he's afraid his wife will choose Evans, Hemsworth, Pine et al. over him.

The 43-year-old admitted in an interview with SiriusXM's Pop Culture Spotlight With Jessica Shaw that 'it feels weird' when someone calls him by his actual name.

He said: "Pratt. CP. You know, CP. 'Hey, CP'. But no one calls me Chris.


"My friend, Chad. I went golfing with my friend, Chad, my pastor the other day and he was like, 'No one calls you Chris? I'm gonna call you Chris. Alright, Chris. You're up'.

"And I was like, 'No, it feels weird. It's not my name. Don't call me Chris'."

He also admitted on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that he had learnt how to spell his wife's surname.

"It's a long name," he added. "There are a lot of letters in these children's names. Schwarzenegger is the second middle name. 


"We didn't hyphenate the names – it's a middle name, but I guess maybe that's semantics." 

When Kimmel asked if Arnold had insisted on that, Pratt said: "No, no, that was Katherine. She's got his strength. What mama says, goes."
