By Tiffany Meier

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son, Joseph Baena, has congratulated his half-sister following her marriage to Chris Pratt, despite not being present for the actual ceremony over the weekend.

Baena, the 21-year-old son of Arnold Schwarzenegger and former housekeeper Mildred Baena, commented on Katherine’s wedding photo on Instagram.

“Congratulations!” he wrote, along with a heart emoji.

“Yesterday was the best day of our lives! We became husband and wife in front of God, our families and those we love,” Katherine wrote in the caption of the photo. “It was intimate, moving and emotional.”

Both Katherine and Chris Pratt wore Armani for their special day.

She added, “We feel so blessed to begin this new chapter of our lives. We are so thankful to our families and our friends who stood with us, and grateful to Mr Giorgio Armani, who created a once in a lifetime dress for me to wear, and for Chris, the perfect suit. This morning we feel nothing but blessed.”

The two became engaged in January and tied the knot on Saturday, June 8, in Montecito, Calif.

Following the wedding, several famous stars all congratulated the newlyweds.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Pratt’s “Avengers: Endgame” co-star, commented: “This is the sweetest!!!! Congratulations you love birds. Wishing you a life of happiness.”

“The Big Bang Theory” star Kaley Cucuo, commented: “This is so incredible sweet you look beautiful ! Congratulations!”

Author and television host Daphne Oz wrote: “Breathtaking!!!! Congratulations!!!! Wishing you a lifetime of love, fun and adventure.”

How They Met

Although the two have only been together since last June—having met through Schwarzenegger’s mother, Maria Shriver—sources close to the couple reveal this is by no means just some whirlwind romance.

“They’re both serious about the relationship and hopeful for the future,” a source close to the couple told People magazine. “Chris doesn’t just date to date, and neither does Katherine. She’s very excited.”

“Chris and Katherine are very happy together,” another source said. “They’re very compatible and have a lot in common.”

Despite all the rumors and public outings, the two only made their relationship official to the public in mid-December. The “Parks and Recreation” star posted a collage of photos of Katherine to celebrate her 29th birthday.

“Happy Birthday Chief! Your smile lights up the room. I’ve cherished our time together. Thrilled God put you in my life. Thankful for the laughs, kisses, talks, hikes, love and care,” he wrote.

On Monday, Jan. 14, Chris Pratt announced the two were engaged in an Instagram post.

The “Jurassic World” actor announced the engagement in an Instagram post early Monday, Jan. 14.

He wrote: “Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes! I’m thrilled to be marrying you. Proud to live boldly in faith with you. Here we go!”
