After eight years of marriage, Pratt and Faris announced they were getting separated on August 6, 2017. Pratt posted about their separation on social media: "Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. 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." In December of that year, Pratt officially filed for divorce. The leading man subsequently spent much of his downtime with his son, though he was spotted on a date with Arnold Schwarzenegger's oldest daughter, Katherine, the following spring. In January 2019, Pratt announced via Instagram that he and Katherine had gotten engaged.
