On Sunday, Katherine Schwarzenegger gave birth to her second child.
“We are so excited to announce the birth of our second daughter, Eloise Christina Schwarzenegger Pratt,” on Sunday, Pratt announced on Instagram.
“Mama and baby are doing well. We feel beyond blessed and grateful. Love, Katherine and Chris.”
News broke in December 2021 that the “Gift of Forgiveness” author, 32, was pregnant with baby No. 2.
While the then-expectant Katherine Schwarzenegger stepped out with her baby bump on display that same month, she did not publicly address her pregnancy until March.
“Preggo mamas tell me if you, too, can only drink ice cold water,” Arnold Schwarzenegger’s daughter captioned an Instagram video.
Katherine Schwarzenegger was similarly private about her pregnancy with her 1-year-old daughter Lyla.
Since the little one’s arrival in August 2020, Katherine Schwarzenegger and Chris Pratt have kept Lyla’s face off social media.
Katherine Schwarzenegger explained this decision to Hoda Kotb during a March 2021 “Today” show appearance, saying, “I didn’t grow up with social media being a thing at all. … I feel like we share so much in today’s world.”
The LA native added, “I think one of the greatest gifts that my parents ever gave my siblings and me is the gift of privacy and having a normal upbringing, or as typical of an upbringing as possible.
“We had a really normal and magical childhood, and we were allowed to kind of be our own people and have our own identity and kind of choose to step into whatever form of being public we wanted to when we felt comfortable.”
Katherine Schwarzenegger called the experience an “incredible” gift from Arnold and her mom, Maria Shriver.
