Another celerity baby has arrived: Katherine Schwarzenegger has given birth to her first child with her husband, Chris Pratt.

On Monday, the parents announced the birth of their daughter, Lyla Maria Schwarzenegger Pratt. Both posted images of Lyla’s tiny baby hand on Instagram with nearly identical messages. Chris’s reads, “We couldn’t be happier. Both mom and baby are doing great. We are extremely blessed. Love Katherine and Chris.”

The child’s birthday has yet to be confirmed. A source reportedly saw Pratt’s car parked at the St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica, California, on Friday afternoon, so make of that what you will. To be fair, Pratt’s golden Volkswagen Beetle is rather distinctive. ET also reports that a van delivered flowers to Katherine’s home on Saturday. Katherine’s dad, former governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger; her mom, Maria Shriver; and siblings were also photographed visiting her house recently. Arnold was smoking a cigar as he headed to his car, a celebratory gesture, but nothing out of the ordinary for the man who loves cigar lounges so much he successfully advocated to keep some open even as Los Angeles instituted a ban on tobacco sales last year.

Katherine, 30, and Chris, 41, wed in a lavish ceremony in June 2019 at a Montecito ranch. Then months later, in April, the couple announced they were expecting. This is Katherine’s first child and Chris’s second. He also has a 7-year-old son, Jack, with his ex-wife, Anna Faris.
