We are beyond thrilled to announce the birth of our daughter, Lyla Maria Schwarzenegger Pratt. We couldn’t be happier. Both mom and baby are doing great. We are extremely blessed. Love Katherine and Chris Psalm 126:3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. Psalm 127:3-4 Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
Chris and Katherine shared the same image to each of their Instagram pages. It was a simple image that showed Chris and Katherine holding hands with their new baby – a baby girl! They also announced her name: Lyla Maria Schwarzenegger Pratt. How sweet! Lyla’s middle name is likely a nod to her maternal grandmother, Maria Shriver.
In the caption of her photo, Katherine shared, “We couldn’t be happier and we feel extremely blessed!” Chris echoed Katherine’s sentiment sharing, “We couldn’t be happier. Both mom and baby are doing great. We are extremely blessed.” Chris also chose to share two bible verses from Psalm that discuss the beauty and importance of children.
Huge congratulations to Katherine and Chris on the birth of their first daughter. We wish them lots of love and happiness as they welcome Lyla into their home!
