Actor Chris Pratt and his wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger, have welcomed their first child together – a daughter named Lyla Maria Schwarzenegger Pratt.

The couple announced the news on Instagram, saying they were “beyond thrilled” and “extremely blessed" after their newborn’s safe arrival.

The Jurassic World actor shared the news alongside a sweet picture of both parents holding their daughter's hand.

"We are beyond thrilled to announce the birth of our daughter, Lyla Maria Schwarzenegger Pratt. We couldn't be happier. Both mum and baby are doing great. We are extremely blessed," he wrote.

Several A-list names were quick to send their congratulations to the new parents, including Pratt's Guardians of the Galaxy co-star Zoe Saldana.

“Welcome to the world Lady Lyla! May your path be blessed with grace and joy always! We are so happy for you guys! Sending you so much love,” she wrote.

Actress Karen Gillan wrote: “So happy for you! And can’t wait to meet her!!!”

Actor Josh Gad and the new baby's uncle Patrick Schwarzenegger also shared their well wishes.

Pratt married Schwarzenegger, 30, who is the eldest daughter of Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, in June 2019, after a six-month engagement.

Pratt, 41, was previously married to actress Anna Faris, and they have a  seven-year-old son, Jack. The couple split in August 2017 after eight years of marriage.
