"I really love what you're doing,” the actor said. “This is really fun, and being right here, right now, it's just uncanny, you guys are both just so beautiful. I'm so lucky to have married into such a gorgeous family."

Recently, a source told PEOPLE that Pratt and Schwarzenegger Pratt are excited for his son Jack to become a big brother. "After they got married, they couldn't wait to grow their family," the source said.

"Jack will be a great big brother. Katherine always says that he is the sweetest, most caring boy. Katherine thinks Chris is an amazing dad. She allowed herself to fall in love with Chris quickly because she early on realized that he is a great family guy," the source shared. "She loves being an extra mom to Jack."

A friend also added: "They can't wait for Jack to have a sibling."
