Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger are over the moon to be expecting their first child together.

"Chris and Katherine are so happy," a source tells PEOPLE of the couple, days after news of their pregnancy was confirmed by multiple sources on Saturday.

"They wanted to enjoy this time privately for as long as possible, but now that Katherine is showing more, they're excited to share the news with everyone," the source adds.

The baby on the way will be The Gift of Forgiveness author's first child. Meanwhile, Pratt is already dad to 7½-year-old son Jack, whom the actor shares with ex-wife Anna Faris.

Schwarzenegger Pratt first began dating the Guardians of the Galaxy star in the summer of 2018, and wed in June 2019 during an intimate ceremony in Montecito, California. Since they were first romantically linked, she has gotten very close to his son Jack.

In February, Pratt raved about his wife during an appearance on E!'s In the Room and opened up to host and friend Jason Kennedy about how meeting and marrying Schwarzenegger Pratt impacted him. "She has changed my life for the better in so many ways. My heart, my soul, my son I feel are all so safe with her. She's a great stepmom," he said.

"She's, God willing, going to be a great mom one day. She's got great parents, great siblings, she fills in all my many deficits," the father of one said at the time.
