Chris Pratt reportedly spent Sunday with Katherine Schwarzenegger, prompting rumors that the actor is falling into a new romance.
Pratt has a five-year-old son, Jack, from his recently defunct marriage to actress Anna Faris. However, according to a report by PEOPLE, Jack spent Father's Day with Faris in Italy along with her new boyfriend, Michael Barrett.
This left Pratt free for his picnic with the eldest daughter of iconic action star Arnold Schwarzenegger. Schwarzenegger, 28, was reportedly laughing and smiling throughout their get-together. She and Pratt arrived together in his red pick-up truck, and were spotted sharing a simple meal of sandwiches, potato chips and apples on a Santa Barbara park bench.
Sources close to the 38-year-old actor said that he has been tentatively dipping his toe back into romantic waters since his divorce.
“It seems he has been on dates, but not dated anyone seriously after he separated from Anna,” an insider said.
They said that Pratt's real focus is on spending as much time with his son as humanly possible.
“When Chris is not working, he spends a lot of time with Jack,” they said simply. On Instagram, Pratt has posted photos of their quality time. Last month, he gave his fans a look at their father-son trip to the Universal Studios theme park.
"Jack (seen here in blue Optimus Prime helmet) went to Universal Studios with his buddy the other day. He comes home and tells me he met the 'real' raptor trainer," Pratt wrote snidely. "Big shout out to all the park performers out there keepin’ it real on a daily basis. Our kids’ smiles say it all. Keep up the good work."
In April, fans fawned over a video Pratt posted of Jack on his farm.
I look at these sheep and I see myself. I see us. I see animals with spirits mirroring their master. They are calm because they’ve put their trust in a loving shepard. They frolic in the sunshine. They marvel in the grass. They snuggle their lambs. As the world currently #marvels in the yarn spun from our wool, and dines on the chops of our labor, like these sheep I feel no anxiety. One day my wool will no longer be spun to gold. As we are all headed to the same quiet home. Today I frolic. For my shepard has found me, and He is so good. 🙏♥️ Start your kids of on the right path, and when they are older, they will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6
Pratt and Faris announced their split in October. The two have reportedly had wildly different reactions to the divorced life. Faris entered a serious relationship with cinematographer Michael Barrett not long after. Fans were unsettled by how fast it happened, and Pratt was reportedly displeased that Jack began spending so much time with a new man so quickly.
“She didn’t sit Chris down and say, ‘Jack is going to meet Michael,’” the source explained. “That conversation should have happened first, but it didn’t. That’s why Chris was so upset.”
Faris reportedly spoke to Pratt about Barrett only after photos of him carrying Jack had come out in the press.
