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.
It appears baby Lyla’s middle name was inspired by the moniker of Katherine’s mother, Maria Shriver.
Previously on Sunday, Katherine’s brother, Patrick Schwarzenegger, confirmed the baby news in a video with Entertainment Tonight.
“They’re doing great — just got her a little gift,” Patrick told the entertainment news show while leaving a market in Santa Barbara.
When he received congratulations on being an uncle, Patrick gave the camera a thumbs-up. He also showed off a package with a pink ribbon.
“The couple is so excited for their new addition and have been showered with love from their family and friends,” a source told ET on Sunday. “Chris was there for the birth and the couple can’t stop taking their eyes off their daughter. Katherine and Chris are doing well and Katherine is enjoying the experience of being a first time mother.”
“Giving birth was such a special moment for Katherine. She was overcome with emotions when she first held her daughter and was so thankful to have Chris there,” the insider added. “Everything is new for Katherine and she’s glad Chris is there to help her through everything.”
Maria, as well as Katherine’s father, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and siblings Christina and Christopher were photographed visiting her house on Friday.
With Lyla’s arrival, Arnold and his ex-wife Maria have become first-time grandparents.
Chris and Katherine tied the knot last June in an intimate ceremony in Montecito, California.
In April, It was revealed that they were expecting their first child together.
The “Parks and Recreation” alum also shares son Jack, 7, with ex-wife Anna Faris.
Kudos to Chris and Katherine on their new addition!
