The summer of love has come and gone, and 2019 is reaping the rewards. While Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson may not have stood the test of time, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra and Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin have both officially tied the knot, and now Chris Pratt, 39, and Katherine Schwarzenegger, 28 have announced their own engagement.
"Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes!" Pratt posted on Instagram. "I’m thrilled to be marrying you. Proud to live boldly in faith with you. Here we go!"
While the couple have only recently been public about their relationship, they've had a low-key romance for some time. They've gone on long drives in Pratt's giant truck, picnicked, and had 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.
August 6, 2017
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."

TMZ published photos of Pratt picking up Schwarzenegger at her house before the two drove up the Santa Barbara coast. The pair were casually dressed as they prepared a makeshift picnic under a tree. Pratt had his date in stitches from what we imagine was a Brett Macklin impersonation.

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.
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. Thank you all for the laughs, wine and hospitality! On Sunday we all attended the 2018 Mayor's Gala in Napa, to raise awareness and money for The Leaven at www.myleaven.com We even auctioned off several #cullypratt items, with @prattprattpratt as the auctioneer! #standinthegap
Few more pics for the fellas & gals who attended the incredibly beautiful wine tour @roundpondestate. If you ever have a chance to checkout St. Helena / Napa Valley it's a must! @candy_lvr @katherineschwarzenegger @prattprattpratt @highbrassleather and all our friends & family not on IG, until nect time!
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!
What a weekend! We had the distinct pleasure of hosting Mr. Chris Pratt and Miss Katherine Schwarzenegger and friends this past Saturday, and they are every bit as warm and hilarious as you'd think! We are SO happy to have you as part of our Round Pond Family! 😊😊😊 . . . #chrispratt #starlord #marvel #napa #roundpond #roundpondestate #napa #napavalley #star #wine #winecountry #cabernet #winery
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.

Schwarzenegger responded to the post with a series of emojis and "I love you."
