Anna Faris has offered to officiate at ex-husband Chris Pratt’s wedding with Katherine Schwarzenegger.

Jurassic World star Pratt popped the question to Schwarzenegger on Sunday after less than a year of dating.

He was previously married to Scary Movie actress Faris for nine years and the couple have a six-year-old son, Jack.

During her Anna Faris Is Unqualified podcast, the host revealed her ex-husband broke the news to her the morning after getting down on one knee.

She said: “Chris texted me this morning and he was like, you know, ‘I proposed to Katherine last night’. I was like ‘Ah! That’s amazing’.

“And I texted him back, ‘Just want to remind you, I’m an ordained minister’.”

Faris, 42, joked that she is “not very good” at officiating weddings. She said she knew “sweet Chris” was ready to propose, adding: “I love her, and I love him, and I’m just so happy that they found each other.”

Faris and Pratt finalised their divorce in November. Pratt confirmed he was dating 29-year-old Schwarzenegger, the daughter of politician and actor Arnold, last month.

Announcing their engagement, the 39-year-old posted a picture of he and his new fiancee embracing, with her diamond ring on show.

He captioned the post: “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!”
