The “Guardians of the Galaxy” star returned home just in time to spend the weekend with Katherine and his new baby, Lyla Maria Schwarzenegger Pratt, according to PEOPLE. The two were photographed hand and hand while walking through their hometown of Santa Barabara, California. Pratt, 41, has reportedly been in Australia filming Marvel’s “Thor: Love and Thunder” but caught a flight to have a causal V-Day.
Sunday was the couple’s first Valentine’s Day since the birth of their baby girl in August. They each shared loving tributes to each other on the lover’s holiday. “♥️Happy ? Valentine’s ? Day ?my ? valentine ?,” Katherine captioned a cute car selfie. Pratt shared a photo of Schwarzenegger holding Lyla behind a heart that was drawn in the sand. He expressed his feelings with a lengthy note.
“To my love @katherineschwarzenegger I’m a lucky man,” Chris wrote alongside the beach pic. You’re a wonderful wife, mother, step mother and Valentine. Thanks for EVERYTHING you’ve given us. I love you so much. ♥️ #happyvalentinesday”
The actor is all set to reprise his role as Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord, in “Thor: Love and Thunder” and a third “Guardians of the Galaxy” film. His character has appeared in both “Guardians” movies, “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame.”
The new Thor film is set to be released in 2022 and obviously stars Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman. They will be joined by Tessa Thompson, Christian Bale, Jaimie Alexander, Pom Klementieff, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, and Sean Gunn. It’s gonna be sweet!!!
The Marvel superstar actually shared the first photo of their new baby girl, Lyla in December… sort of. Pratt posted a heartwarming tribute to celebrate Katherine’s birthday on December 13. The collage, posted on Instagram, included a picture of the 31-year-old mother holding their little girl. However, there was a giant Santa sticker over Lyla’s face. Hey, the first baby pic is the first baby pic!
The two are very private when it comes to posting pictures of the child’s face. Lyla has made a few appearances since then but still no clear face pics. Their incredible love for one another and their baby girl is clearly visible in every sweet post though. Pratt also shares an 8-year-old son, Jack, with his ex, Anna Faris.
