Chris Pratt made sure he did not get engaged to Katherine Schwarzenegger without giving his ex Anna Faris a ‘heads up’.

These two seem to have one the most mature divorces out there.

The Avengers star reached out to the mother of his child and his former wife before he got down on one knee to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s daughter.

And Anna even offered to help out with the nupitals.

Anna revealed on the Divorce Sucks podcast: ‘So, he was so sweet, as he always is. He called me, like, “So, I’m going to ask Katherine to marry me. I just wanted to give you a heads-up.” … I was like, “That’s awesome!” and I told him that I was an ordained minister.’

The Scary Movie actor is over the moon that her and Chris – who share son Jack together – are ‘respectful’ towards each other despite the breakdown of their marriage.

She added: ‘Under all of these uncoupling circumstances, I think that we are so good and respectful towards each other, and I think there is so much kindness and love, and I know we want to get to that ultimate goal, and I know it sounds lame and optimistic, but that’s what I want.’

The 42-year-old actress – who was previously married to Ben Indra – and Chris are doing everything they can to make life as easy as possible for Jack.

She explained: ‘Well, Chris and I had a long conversation earlier on about – our goal was to have group Thanksgiving dinners together and to be at that place.

‘Do we do that sooner or later? Grudge-holding is not something that Chris and I do. So, we wanted to make sure, of course, that [their son] Jack was happy, but that we were happy and supportive of each other and that we could have this fantasy idea of, do we all spend Christmas together? Do we all vacation together?

‘How do we make sure that everybody that we love feels safe, and that we also respect the love we have for each other?’

Chris announced his engagement to 29-year-old Katherine in January on social media.

Announcing the exciting news, Chris told his Instagram followers alongside the adorable snap: ‘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!’

Chris and Katherine became engaged just three months after Chris finalised his divorce from Anna Faris, following eight years of marriage.

The couple announced their split with a statement which read: ‘We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed.

‘Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another.’

The pair cited irreconcilable differences in the divorce, which was finalised in October 2018.
