The summer of love has come and gone and the only thing we have to show for it are three major celebrity engagements and a few other budding romances. Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson, and Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are all heading down the aisle, but not before the ladies show off their rings on social media. Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson (kind of) made their summer romance Instagram official just this week, and Cole Sprouse posted a blurry photo of a kiss with Riverdale co-star Lily Reinhart, confirming their uber private relationship once and for all.
Floating under the radar through all these announcements, Chris Pratt, 39, and Katherine Schwarzenegger, 28, daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, have been dating. They're going on long drives in Pratt's giant truck, they're picnicking, and having church dates. Schwarzenegger, a lifestyle blogger and author, was reportedly set up with Pratt the old fashioned way: by her mother, Maria Shriver.
The Guardians of The Galaxy star and President John F. Kennedy's great-niece have yet to confirm the relationship, but if stolen kisses under palm trees are any indication, love is definitely in the air.
Ahead, the full timeline, as far as we know, of this private celebrity couple.

Pratt and Anna Faris, his wife of eight years, released an identical joint statement announcing their separation and impending divorce. "We are sad to announce we are legally separating," they wrote in photo of a text shared on their respective social media accounts. "We tried hard for a long time and we're really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still love each other and will always cherish our time together."

Weekend of September 8, 2018
Pratt's brother, Cully Pratt, shared photos from the Pratt family's weekend gathering at the Round Pond Estate Winery in Rutherford, California, where Schwarzenegger had the chance to schmooze with Pratt & Co., according to the Huffington Post.
"So thankful for time shared with my family & friends! On Saturday, we had a great (much needed) day-cation get away, wine tasting @roundpondestate with @candy_lvr @katherineschwarzenegger@prattprattpratt @highbrassleather & @Solano County Sheriff Tom Ferrarra & Napa County Sheriff John Robertson," Cully Pratt wrote in an Instagram caption for a series of photos from the weekend. The group also attended a charity auction hosted by Pratt.
Knowing they had a scoop (of sorts) on their hands, the winery jumped in lovefest, sharing photos of the couple on Instagram. Oh, and everyone else who attended, too. BUT, the couple!
The most important takeaway from these snaps is that Schwarzenegger and Pratt may not be Instagram official or red carpet official, or they've taken the next steps in meeting the family, so it must be serious.
September 15, 2018
The couple kept it casual on a low-key Saturday stroll in matching athleisure. Pratt and Schwarzenegger have not let paparazzi keep them from living their life in the public eye, staying active, and enjoying the company of friends and family.
