Pratt and his first wife, Anna Farris, officially announced their separation in 2017. They share a son, Jack Pratt. They officially got divorced in 2018, but the couple still shares a great bond. One year after they announced their separation, the ‘Rock What You’ve Got’ author and Pratt started dating.

Their romance took a serious turn when Pratt took Katherine along with him to visit his older brother, Cully. The elder Pratt brother is a county sheriff’s deputy in Napa Valley. The couple kept their dating as quiet as possible and only caught the eye of the paparazzi when they finally announced their engagement.

The former governor of California and his son-in-law share a great bond. And even though Pratt is a huge name in the industry himself, he respected his father-in-law enough to ask for his permission. Although Katherine was 30 years old and capable enough of making her own decisions, when Pratt proposed to her, it was a sweet gesture he made as he asked her parents’ permission.
