Chris Pratt and wife Katherine Schwarzenegger have announced the birth of their second daughter.
The baby girl is called Eloise Christina Schwarzenegger Pratt.
The announcement was made on both of their Instagram accounts, with a picture of the tot’s name, and her birthday- May 21.
The caption read: “We are so excited to announce the birth of our second daughter, Eloise Christina Schwarzenegger Pratt. Mama and baby are doing well. We feel beyond blessed and grateful. Love, Katherine and Chris.”
The actor, 42, and his Katherine, 32, are already parents to daughter Lyla Schwarzenegger Pratt – who the couple welcomed into the world in August 2020.
In December Chris paid tribute to his wife on her birthday in a lengthy Instagram post.
Alongside some photos, he wrote: “Happy birthday honey! You are such a wonderful wife, mother, step-mother and life partner. I simply can’t imagine how lost I’d be without you.”
The Guardians of the Galaxy star continued in the post: “You’re beautiful, tough as nails, reasonable, deeply thoughtful, extraordinarily smart, you’re a complete boss, eternally driven and you communicate like no other.”
“Thank you for everything. Thank you for being so instrumental in my growth over the past few years. We fit so perfectly into each other’s lives that our union is a daily reminder that God is looking out for us,” he further wrote.
He added: “Navigating the odd circumstances of our world is a task I cannot handle alone.

“And I’m grateful I don’t have to. Your commitment to helping others is contagious.”
The post concluded: “I’m just so grateful for the harmony you continually bring to our household. I love you so much.”
In November, Chris faced backlash after thanking Katherine for giving him a “healthy daughter”.
In a post on Instagram, the 42-year-old heaped praise on his wife, saying she was his “greatest treasure”, and “her heart is pure and it belongs to me.”
But it was his comment about daughter Lyla that irked his followers, as he shared some of the things he was grateful to his wife for, including giving him a “gorgeous healthy daughter.”
Chris’ eldest child Jack was born two months prematurely and weighed just three pounds 12 ounces at birth.
He spent the first month of his life in the neonatal intensive care unit, and despite doctors fearing he would have severe health issues during his life, Jack only needs to wear glasses and has slight leg muscle problems.
Some angry fans took to the comments to slam Chris for his seemingly insensitive remarks, with some accusing him of being passive aggressive towards ex Anna and their son.
Speaking about Jack’ time in neonatal care, Chris said it “redefined” his faith in God.
“The baby was so beautiful to us, and I look back at the photos of him and it must have been jarring for other people to come in and see him, but to us he was so beautiful and perfect,” he told People.
