Chris Pratt's Post About His Wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger, Is Being Criticized, And Here's Why

"She helps me with everything. In return, periodically, I open a jar of pickles. That’s the trade. Her heart is pure and it belongs to me."

Chris Pratt's latest Instagram post about his wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger, is getting a mixed response online.

Chris got married to Katherine in 2019, about a year after they started dating, and they welcomed their daughter, Lyla Maria, last year.

In a new post on Instagram of the couple, Chris wrote, "Guys. For real. Look how she’s looking at me! I mean. Find you somebody that looks at you like that!! You know!?"

"We met in church. She’s given me an amazing life, a gorgeous healthy daughter, she chews so loudly that sometimes I put in my ear buds to drown it out, but that’s love!"

The couple attend Zoe Church, a controversial church that the Biebers also attend. 

"She helps me with everything. In return, periodically, I open a jar of pickles. That’s the trade. Her heart is pure and it belongs to me. My greatest treasure — right next to my Ken Griffey Jr Upper Deck Rookie card. Which if you know, you know is saying a lot," he continued.

The post ends with, "It’s her birthday in about 6 weeks. So if I don’t get her anything, I’ll tell her to look back on this post. Love you honey."

Some people — including Katherine and her family — found the post to be endearing:

Katherine's mom, Maria Shriver, said "this is so sweet now show us how you look at her!!

Others found the tone of the post to be...odd:

The real political divide in america can be summed up b whether u think this post from Chris Pratt comes off as a) sweet snd normal or b) Cringe and insane

the culture of "my wife moves mountains for me, sacrifices her personal happiness for mine, is way out of my league in every way, and I am..a man who does nothing for her in return haha🥰 men, get you a woman who's serving you while you just sit there!" is so toxic and must die.

Someone commented "what in the male audacity" and another said "i really don't think this is as great of a post as you think it is [red flag emojis]

Some highlighted the line, "She’s given me an amazing life, a gorgeous healthy daughter" within the context of Chris's son, Jack. Chris shares Jack with ex-wife Anna Faris. He was born premature and had a cerebral hemorrhage — resulting in slight vision and leg muscle issues.

And subsequently, they mentioned Chris's son in response:

@cactus__flower_ "a gorgeous healthy daughter" wtf is this a diss on Anna Faris for their child being born premature?
